Meal Delivery For Special Occasions

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought it only fitting to share with you that I’m going to be using a meal delivery service for the special occasion. And I’m going to share with you a recipe for blue cheese compound butter that is sooo delicious, you’ll want to make it and eat it with everything!

Home chef meal delivery for special occasionsLast year I tried 6 home meal delivery services and did a comparison. The winner was Home Chef. It was also my favorite.

To this day, I still use Home Chef. For special occasions or for weeks I know I just won’t have a lot of time to figure out what to make or go to the store, I’ll schedule a delivery.

Home Chef meal delivery for Valentines daySome of the reasons I love home meal delivery kits:

  • it’s faster than going to the grocery store
  • it is less expensive than a fancy meal at a restaurant (and I don’t need to hire a babysitter)
  • there are no leftovers of crazy decadent ingredients I might only want to use for one meal
  • It’s fun to cook different things that I might normally never make
  • You can cook with your partner
  • You know the recipe is going to work

Steak with blue cheese compound butter from Home ChefAs a busy working mom and wife,  I still want to make Valentines day special. I don’t really want to ‘experiment’ with a fancy new recipe for a special occasion. Home meal deliveries really help with this, because I know it’s going to be good.

Home Chef has the best steak recipes. Steak just screams Valentine’s Day to me.

I have even kept several recipes that I make over and over because they have become such family favorites.

A funny story about this post in particular. When I was making it to photograph for this post, we were thinking we were going to just have it at a later time. It was SO GOOD that we ended up eating it all, standing with the fork in one hand and camera in the other lol. I’m going to share the recipe for blue cheese compound butter, because that was the best thing I’ve ever had. It went SO well with the steak, green beans, and potatoes. It would make the perfect topping for anything (including on top of a slice of toast!)

    Yum! Looks good….you might check your butter measurement in the recipe portion? (Not sure the qty.) We are having Hello Fresh delivered. Steak, brussels and sweet potatoes. 🙂

      This was so delicious! I’m totally going to be making the blue cheese compound butter all the time (and thank you – I fixed the measurements!)

    Phi, this looks so good! What a treat it would be to get a special occasion meal like this! I’m in!

      Meal kits – or meal delivery for special occasions is so amazing, we love Home Chef!

    OMG, we just made this last week and it was delicious! The creamy compound butter added so much flavor to a supremely tender sirloin steak. Blue cheese and steak go together like cereal and milk. I also agree with you that nothing says a romantic dinner like a medium rare steak. I must admit that Home Chef does supply some beautiful cuts of meat and this meal was no exception. Every once in a while we opt for the “premium” meal and the quality and taste have rivaled the best restaurants. By-the-way, your photography is so beautiful that my stomach is growling!
