This is the information sheet that came with my family’s package. We let the chef choose our meals, and this is a list of what we received. It also has instructions on how to prepare the meals. The meals arrive in an insulated container as seen above, with plenty of ice packs inside to keep them cool. By the time I pull them out of the box they are no longer frozen solid, of course, but so far they have been just fine.
Meal #1: Chicken Shawarma with Rice and Vegetables
Our first meal was chicken shawarma. Another recent change with Meal Time Box is that they now package the entree separately from the sides. I think that makes it a little nicer as you can mix and match the sides to the entree you like. We received two of each meal and side. For all of these, I put them in the refrigerator and let them thaw, then cut one end open and microwave for two to four minutes.
Here’s how the chicken shawarma looked prepared. Since we’ve been subscribing to Meal Time Box, we have a “frozen dinner night” once a month and everyone gets to try something. This was my nine-year-old’s choice. He actually liked it okay, which is miraculous, since he likes nothing.
Meal #2: Guinness Stew
This is the frozen Guinness stew. My husband was actually craving stew this night, so this was his choice.
Here it is prepared. It was a hit! My husband really liked it.
Meal #3: Miso Chicken with Rice and Vegetables
This is the frozen miso chicken.
This was my ten-year-old’s choice for the month, and he thought it was delicious. I took a little bite, too, and I have to agree!
Meal #4: Pork and Pineapple Stirfry
This is the frozen pork and pineapple stir fry.
This was my choice this month, and I thought it was completely delicious. This is one of the best meals I have had from Meal Time Box!
Meal #5: Salisbury Steak with Potatoes and Broccoli
This is the frozen Salisbury steak.
My husband ate this on a separate occasion. He said it was really good for Salisbury steak. I guess that’s not one of his usual favorites, but he liked this version.
Meal Time Box always sends the most amazing desserts from ABV Sweets! They are so indulgent! We got these turtle brownies this month, and they tasted amazing. I hate to say it, but the desserts they send are my favorite part of the whole box!
Verdict: Meal Time Box is a little more expensive than the frozen meals you typically find at the grocery store, but they taste much better and seem to be much healthier. Regardless of what the individual verdicts above on each meal may say, they are all much, much tastier than your average frozen meal fare. I understand that they don’t always look super appealing, but I really like that there aren’t a bunch of added preservatives, colors, artificial flavors, sugar, etc. They are also very convenient, so if you eat frozen meals they are definitely worth checking out.
