Food delivery

Home delivery of food has become more and more popular in Norway.

People seem to have lesser time on their hand,, places to go and people to meet and not everybody is very fond of planning their meals, but enjoy to eat good food.

This week I have tried out food home delivery Adamsmatkasse.

Ingredients and recipes for 5 dinners, 1 tart plus 4 kg fresh fruits.

What you see in the top picture is basically what was in the boxes and it is supposed to be enough for a family of four. Doesn’t look much does it and I have to admit that I was a little worried that it would not be enough for the four of us still living in my household.

What does a family of four consist of?

Two adults and two small children, 4 adults, one adult and three young children or a family like mine with one adult, two hungry teens(18 and 15) and a little wee one.

My fifteen year old who helped me carry the boxes in to the kitchen has passed 6’1″ already, he snickered a little when he saw the amount of proteins

But oh well, best to keep an open mind

During this week we had

Baked cod with romaesco and a cucumber- and dillsalad

My initial worry about this not being enough food was needless, there was enough.

MiniMe is a little bit picky when it comes to vegetables, I tried to get her to try te romanesco and said “Look sweetie they look like mini christmastrees” where up on the little sweetie answered “I don’t want to eat christmastrees” Jeez, mum really need to think about her analogies.

Baby romaine taco with corn, bell peppers and beans.

Nothing bad to say about this dish except that we ran out of lettuce, ha ha ha and I was worried about not enough proteins. We ended up eating half of it without lettuce, I did not feel like running to the store in the middle of dinner.

Fish au gratin with lemon sauce and colorful vegetables

Front Ribs with homemade ajvar sauce and lime scented couscous salad. 

My “little” carnivores had been looking forward to this meal, but they missed bbq sauce. It was not because that the boys did not like the  ajvar sauce, it was just different.

The meal did fill us up, but sometimes the eye wants more than the tummy, the boys wondered if this was it and looking at MiniMes plate and hoping she did not want hers:)

She knew they wanted hers and took her time eating every little bit 😀

Baked potato with ham, veggies and sour cream.

Tart Tatin a la Adam

For this recipe we only got the apples, most households have the extra ingredients like flour, butter and sugar.

I liked the variation of meals in this delivery box and I feel it was healthy and nutritional as well.

I would recommend subscribing for food deliveries like this if you do not have time to prepare and your priority is not grocery shopping or if you have hectic periods that take you to other places but your kitchen. Besides it is only five meals and no breakfast and no lunch, so you do have to actually go grocery shopping once in a while. Another solution is to eat out, invite yourself to someone or invite someone to you:)
