First Filipino-inspired dish in our Fourth HelloFresh Box for 2022

Finally, I'll be able to try HelloFresh's rendition of a Filipino dish, and this week they are offering a Caldereta-Style Ground Beef. Let's see how it went!

Our HelloFresh box arrived Saturday morning delivered by FedEx. Unfortunately, we decided to go on a random date that day, so I couldn't cook any HelloFresh meals.

Superbowl Sunday Brunch and Wednesday Lunch: Cal Smart Turkey Chili

It's Superbowl day, and I know we're going to eat tons of game day finger food for lunner (lunch and dinner), so for brunch, I chose the lowest calorie meal from our HelloFresh box, which is the Cal Smart Turkey Chili with Lime Crema which we also had last year.

HelloFresh Description: Jam-packed with nutrients to keep you strong but still delivering on flavour, this recipe proves you can satisfy that chilli craving.

#MeatlessMonday Valentine's Day Breakfast and Thursday Lunch: Zucchini and Lemon Linguine

We loved this dish last year, and it deserves to be our first meal on Valentine's day! Unfortunately, HelloFresh forgot to add the basil pesto to my box. It's honestly frustrating that I am paying so much money for a premium service that missed an ingredient in two of the four boxes we ordered so far.

Zucchini and Lemon Linguine with Basil Pesto and Goat Cheese

HelloFresh Description: We love zucchini all year long here at HelloFresh, and this dish combines some of our favourite flavours: sweet snap peas, zucchini, and basil pesto. A little squeeze of lemon at the end brings the whole dish together!

Valentine's Day Monday Lunch and Friday Breakfast: Caldereta-Style Ground Beef

The Caldereta dish I grew up with usually includes potatoes (and usually uses chicken). This is a fancy version of the Caldereta, but because of the soy sauce, it's like Pork Menudo without the diced potatoes.

Caldereta-Style Ground Beef with Peppers, Peas, and Rice

HelloFresh Description: We've quickened up this traditional Filipino tomato-based stew by using ground beef. This hearty stew is a perfect family dinner full of peppers, peas, garlic, and hint soy.

Tuesday Birthday Dinner: Bacon Alfredo Pasta

To celebrate hubby's birthday, I picked the meal with bacon to cook for our dinner.

HelloFresh Description: The iconic Roman pasta dish, with a smoky, creamy sauce, peas and bacon, is sure to be a hit with the whole family. Everyone will be licking their plate clean.

Wednesday Dinner and Friday Lunch: Stovetop Pastitsio-Inspired Fusili

I used Almond milk for the milk requirement of this recipe, and I thought there was too much pumpkin spice in the recipe.

Stovetop Pastitsio-Inspired Fusili

HelloFresh Description: Inspired by the classic Greek layered pasta dish, pastitsio, this stovetop version takes a fraction of the time to put together! Then, the pumpkin pie spice blend adds layers of warm, aromatic flavour in just a minute!

Thursday and Friday Dinner: Veggie Chili

We enjoyed this healthy heart chilli last year and decided to order it again this week.

Veggie Chilli with Tortilla Chips and Sour Cream

HelloFresh Description: Simple to prepare, this delicious chilli will have everyone racing to the table with extraordinary flavours. Your bowls will be filled with beans, bell peppers, and tomatoes. We suggest using the tortilla chips to scoop up and enjoy every last bite.
