So, I got a bit lazy with the last three days of my SOS Cuisine menu, at least when it comes to taking photos and posting about the meals. The meals involved two days of chicken and one day of pasta, and I was just too hungry/lazy to play around with my camera before eating. What can I say – the food just looked so good!
The proscuitto and kiwi was a real discovery. I wasn’t sure how the salty ham and the sweet fruit would work together, but they were brilliant. A great little snack or appetizer. The chicken was good, and made enough for a repeat on day 5. The cherries with peaches were something I subbed into my menu because they’re in season and showing up on fruit trucks all over the city.
Another delicious repeat of the proscuitto and kiwi, this time followed by a quick and easy pasta dish.
This last day was all repeats, but still tasty. I really do love the radish and feta salad, and will be eating lots of it throughout the summer. The idea of making the fruit compote is a simple one, but one that I hadn’t really thought of until it showed up on the SOS menu. We do a fair bit of stewed rhubarb in this house, but not any other fruits. I’ll be trying it the rest of the summer with whatever is seasonal, whenever I need a bit of a treat.
All in all, I enjoyed using the SOS Cuisine menu this week. I did a lot of customizing to what was originally posted, and their grocery cost estimate was way off for what I paid at the store. (might be AB stores, might be because it’s pretty hard to buy just 5 cherry tomatoes) It’s definitely a site I’ll use again, probably just for lining up three meals rather than the planned five. I like the range of recipes available on the site, and the matching grocery list that is created. I’m just too fickle to be tied down to five pre-planned meals in a week, especially in the summer, when the local produce is so inspirational.
