I used to love to make dinner. And then I had two rowdy boys. I still really love to cook but it has become way more of a challenge. I’m often trying to get dinner on the table before some sort of activity (tee ball has ruled our lives lately) and my husband is commuting home. I’m sure most of you are no stranger to the scene of trying to get a healthy, good quality meal together while kids run around you asking you questions and generally being loud and distracting. It’s that time of day when they are just bursting with energy and as cute as they may be, it makes any complicated dinner prep an incredible feat. So I was excited to try and create stress free dinners with Gobble, a dinner kit box service.
For those of you who haven’t given it a go, Gobble delivers fresh, quick, one-pan dinners that anyone can cook in less than 15 minutes, right to your doorstep. And here’s the really amazing part. There is no shopping or chopping required. This no prep part is crucial to me. I have loved other box dinner services but the chopping was time consuming and still hard to do as a family dinner.
Look how excited I am about my own Gobble delivery!
The box contained everything I needed to create three healthy amazing meals and simple recipe cards. My kids loved helping me unpack and it was a great way to talk about the dinners we would eat that week.
First up we made the Brown Sugar Crusted King Salmon.
I was shocked on so many levels. The time it took REALLY was just about 10 minutes! I made sure to read the recipe card twice and it was an easy dish that required very little prep. Jake and Max love to help in the kitchen and you can see how happy they were to sing for their dinner and get in on the action mashing up the avocado. Having a simple recipe to follow is also a good way of showing them how to follow step-by-step instructions without it getting too complicated for them.
I mean look at that photo! We made that!
I love that it looks and tastes like the high quality meal that I want my family to experience but yet it was so simple. I never would have thought to blend those flavors together in a meal and I was blown away by how it tasted.
Next up was the Blackened Prime Sirloin Steak.
Since we don’t get date night out nearly as often as we would like, I decided this was a perfect meal to first serve the kids and then later that night make into a nice meal for my husband and I. Our little pseudo date night. Again it was so fast and tasted sooooo good. This meal had all my favorite flavors and I would love to serve it over and over again. I mean mashed potatoes with poblano peppers and corn, YUM!
Having it on the table so quickly left more time for us to talk about our days and connect. Things have been so hectic and it felt like we gave ourselves a treat.
