Simplify Dinner with Gobble

Thanks so much to BrandCycle for connecting me with Gobble and letting me try their service for free!

Before I had kids, I would cook dinner every night. With each child, those night got fewer and farther between. I feel like I'm constantly on the hunt for simplified dinners for my family, so when I was asked to try Gobble, I jumped at the chance.

If you haven't heard of Gobble, it is a meal subscription box for the busy home cook. You select meals each week that are made in just one pan. They're 3-step recipes that you can get on the table in less than 15 minutes. Seriously.

Everything comes in a box, even the meat. Large frozen packs are included to keep everything nice and cool during shipping.

The three meals I chose were Thai Basil Chicken with Brown Jasmine Rice, Balsamic Glazed Flat Iron Steak with Oven Roasted Zucchini Fries, and Grilled Flank Steak and Fajita Salad with Cilantro-Lime Dressing. Each serving size is between 500-700 calories. Not bad for a quick home-cooked meal.

The seasoning packet for the flank steak was delicious and not too spicy for my kids' picky palates. I hadn't grilled yet this season and was reminded of how nice it is to not heat up my whole house to cook one steak!

My kids only wanted to eat the steak (big surprise), but I made them eat the salad too and they didn't complain one bit. The cojita cheese added a great freshness to an already bright, summer salad.

A couple days later I made the balsamic steak. I was curious about the zucchini fries, since they were breaded with a garlic-seasoned coating. I sort of forgot they were in the oven, but they didn't burn and still turned out amazing.

The balsamic glaze was delicious. Based on my previous experience with balsamic vinegar, I was nervous it would overpower all the other flavors, but it didn't compete at all. It actually complemented the zucchini fries beautifully. All in all, it was a great dish.
