Serendipity, Valentine's Day, and a really good red pepper sauce

Sorry to be a little late getting back to report on the Juicy Kitchen home meal delivery order I mentioned in my last post. I got my days mixed up (not as bad as when I tried to have in-laws over the night a new cleaning person was coming... I thought, a week early). Maybe it's overanticipation.

But when this past sunny Sunday came around and the food arrived at my door in a cheery green temperature control bag, it was welcome all the same. I had my white bean soup and turkey and lentil loaf on hand for a Valentine's Day Monday dinner, and that was a treat. Everything was nicely prepared: mashed red potatoes with just enough skin for interest, loaves with a tasty crust... The best was the red pepper sauce. Beautifully colored, satisfying as a gravy but completely fresh and light. Yum.

And the big chocolate chip "smart cookie" naturally sweetened with banana, dried fruit, a little maple syrup--a crowning touch.

You know you've made it when food arrives at your door...

Forget German cars and fur coats: I'm congratulating myself on where I am in life by ordering gourmet dinner, waiting for me on my porch when I get home. Thought about it for a while, but what's making me act is the new Juicy Kitchen service http://www.juicykitchen-a2.com/ which promises-super healthy menus prepared by chef and personal trainer Susan Todoroff. She explains:

"I don't rely on gimmicky things like sneaking veggies into desserts, but use naturally healthy ingredients like natural sweeteners (agave nectar, ripe bananas) rather than processed white sugar, and a minimal amount of healthy fats like extra virgin olive and coconut oil, known for their health benefits. I use all whole grains rather than processed white flour, and rely on ingredients like different kinds of vinegars, mustards and homemade vegetable stock to add deep flavors. I use no butter and very little salt, and the results are delicious."

Prices seem pretty reasonable. What I've ordered for Wednesday delivery is:

1 Turkey Veggie Meatloaf W/Roasted Red Pepper Sauce $12
1 Lentil Apple Loaf W/Roasted Red Pepper Sauce - Vegan $11
1 White Bean & Roasted Tomato Soup - Vegetarian $8

Tune back in next week and I'll tell you how it is!
