After taking a bit of a hiatus since having my baby, I got back onto the Plated band wagon! Right after I had my baby, I had my Mom here cooking for me, I had friends bringing me dinners and I had a freezer full of healthy, ready made dishes. Well, now that I’ve had a little time to grow accustomed to my new life/sleep schedule, I’m slowly integrating my old habits back in. Enter: Plated!

If you’re new to my blog, Plated is a food delivery service; basically ready-to-make- recipes in a box! You pick what meals you want to get delivered and all the fresh ingredients in the exact right proportions show up at your door a few days later. It’s been really convenient for me and my family, especially now that grocery shopping means carting THREE kids around the store {yikes!}  so I share our favorite meals we enjoy. We love tacos in this household, so whenever we see something new or interesting all wrapped up in a taco, it goes on the must try list. These Asian Beef Tacos looked amazing on the website, so I ordered it along with a few others! Here are some of the photos I snapped from the process.

Overall thoughts from this meal: Gordon loved them. Brooke {who hates peppers of any kind} said “there are peanuts in these tacos?” and completely forgot about the peppers, I thought they were good and had a nice sweet and spicy balance. Blake ate….the tortilla. We’re working on expanding his little 2 year old palate 🙂

Anyways, here’s the recipe incase you wanted to try it yourself OR feel free to order a box yourself.

    I have to admit, I was a bit sceptical when I saw this recipe, I mean who would combine Asian food with Mexican food, but then I thought, why not, I love them both. I’m really glad I did, these are fabulous! Thank you for this recipe and all your other wonderful recipes!!
    Congrats on your new baby boy, Eddie.
