You may remember from this post that Chris and I are trying to spice up our dinners by trying out some meal subscription boxes. And while dinner boredom was the main reason we’ve been signing up, I’ve quickly discovered another benefit of these meal boxes is that I get at least three nights a week that I don’t have to figure out what we are going to have for dinner! It’s a win win!
Martha & Molly Spoon (yes, THAT Martha) is a meal box that offers either a two person box or a family box. The family box is meant to feed 2 adults and 2 children. Regardless of which box you choose you can select either two, three or four meals a week. Chris and I chose the box for two people with three meals. That seems to be the best fit for us and the cost of our selection is $61.50 per week. Obviously your cost may be different based on your selection.
Once you sign up you fill out a taste profile and choose a delivery date. Every week Martha & Molly Spoon will recommend meals for your box based on your taste profile but you are able to alter the meals you are getting if you don’t like their recommendations. There seems to be about 7 meal options to choose from each week . A great perk of Marth & Molly Spoon is that you are not obligated to get a box every week and you can cancel at any time.
Now that you have all the details let’s take a look at the first Martha & Molly Spoon box that Chris and I received.
Everything was packaged up really nicely, making dinnertime even easier! Now for the most important question…..how were the meals?
Meal #1: Pork Schnitzel with Warm Cabbage & Potato Salad
Chris and I both enjoyed this meal. The pork was very tasty, the potatoes were good and the cabbage was just so-so but we are not really cabbage people so that is more about us rather than the recipe.
Meal #2: Tortilla Cannelloni
This was our favorite meal out of the box. It was SO good. It was a bit on the salty side but I think that may have been user error. We would definitely make this again on our own since we have the recipe.
Meal #3: Oven-Fried Berbere Chicken
This meal was excellent as well. The salad was different from the salad we would normally make and it was super tasty.
Chris and I were both very excited about the Martha & Molly Spoon box. The recipes were much different from what we would normally make on our own and they were delicious! We also appreciated the generous size of the meals as surprisingly I able to bring leftovers to work the next day. This is definitely a box that we will be getting again and we think it is a must try!
