I don't know if you read my post I'm a winner or if you even know how I won my Fresh Diet week or even what it is that I won, that you could read about here, Fresh Diet could this be your ticket.
Well I was and am so excited to have been selected so that I can try the meals this company makes. Today was day one of my free week. I have decided that I will document my journey of meals and give you pictures and my opinion on each.
I woke at 5AM (yes it is an ungodly hour) to make the coffee and make sure the inhabitants of my household are starting to stir for work / school / whatever, and find this
Now I am not sure when the bag arrived (they say anywhere between 7PM and 5AM) because I never heard a thing. But I was really happy to see it there.
Around 3:00 I started to think about how I would get everything that was left in my bag into me. I mean I try to stop eating between 8 and 9 so that I'm not going to sleep with anything heavy in my stomach, and I still had an appetizer and dinner and dessert in said bag.
Dinner was around 6:15 today. Turkey Breast Scalopini with White Wine & Shallots with Baby Farmer Carrots and Sauteed Spinach. I would have liked a few more carrots (so it might have meant a little less spinach) but the vegetables were fantastic. The spinach wasn't slimy and the carrots were tender crisp - how they did that when its made at least 12 hours before I have NO idea but I really enjoyed them. The wine and Shallots sauce was very good, not sure if you can tell but I put some over the veggies too. The turkey was a very generous portion, but I will say it wasn't my favorite part of the meal. I'm not really sure why though. It was pretty thick so although the veggies were hot, the inside of the turkey wasn't very warm. I did eat all of the entree, but I don't know if I would order the turkey again. But then again, it could have just been me today and then next time I could love it. Two mugs of green tea rounded out the meal.
Did you notice my pumpkin candle? It is October after all - its pumpkin time! Please note that it was lit for dinner ........ just need to set the stage.
Now this is on a BIG black saucer - from a Starbucks cup that has to hold 16 oz of coffee so the saucer has to be big too ..... but I just thought it looked cute next to my tiny pumpkin candle and orange crocheted table runner (my grandma made those so I will always have one of her pieces on my table)
Well there you have it - Day One of My Fresh Diet Journey. I can't wait to see what is in my green bag for tomorrow, I mean I know what I ordered but since today was more than I thought it would be I can't wait to see tomorrow.
Now if you will excuse me my Cheese Cake is calling me. Should I have a cup of cappuccino to go with it? mmmm ok I will be good. I will have my Cheese Cake and then later I will have another cup of tea before going to bed. Oh and putting my new green friend by the back door so one of his relatives can come to visit tomorrow.
