The Worst Sun Basket Recipe

Sun Basket Meal Kit #8

Madras coconut curry with tofu, tomatoes, and black rice ★(very close to no star)

It might look good, but it tastes awful for me. Curry has no flavor. Tofu has no soy tastes and strange texture. It’s too spicy and lime makes it worse somehow. Absolutely my least favorite dish! It was like a torture I couldn’t finish.

Then I had cereal and milk.



Picked up a Vietnamese Sandwich for lunch.

#4 Sesame Beef

Winc #1: 2016 Tempo Vero Negroamaro, Salento IGT, Italy ★★★

This Negroamaro provides a peek into an unspoiled part of Italy, with notes of cocoa, dark plum, currant, and spice.

I believe that it’s first time to see and taste Negroamaro. Easily understandable why it’s called “negro (black)” because of this dark color. First impression was spiciness but it got milder later.

Simple seared steak with arugula pesto and cucumber-radish salad ★★★★
I like the quality top sirloin and appreciate Sun Basket offers recipes with a lot of vegetables. Loved arugula pesto.

Due to the recipe I flipped steaks frequently while cooking. It was a perfect medium rare.

It was strange but I still felt so hungry after dinner. So did he. Maybe we craved for carbs.

We went out to have some ramen.

He ordered fried rice and it comes with soup & salad.

Kani-Tama Chahan $12.50, Crab Omelette & Sweet Sour Sauce over Fried Rice
It’s huge.

Chanpon $10.70, Assorted veggies, pork & seafood over Shio Ramen
It’s huge too.

He had a half of it and I had only noodle and a little soup, we took the rest home for lunch tomorrow. Yes, we finally got stuffed.

Tokyo Central & Mediterranean Lemon Chicken

There was a power outage at work this morning. A few second or minute interruption occurs sometimes but it took 2 hours to get power back today. In modern life, we don’t have much to do without power or internet connection. So we took a long break from 9:45 to 1:00.

First I went to Tokyo Central for shopping.

It’s full of Japanese stuff

Next, coffee time! We had a business meeting at Starbucks.

Lunch: My Curry Rice with Beef Croquette ($1.50) from Tokyo Central

Sun Basket – Greek Salmon & Whole Foods

Sun Basket Meal Kit #4

One-pan Greek salmon over zucchini noodles and wilted greens ★★★
It’s only 440 calories and tastes very simple with lemon, salt & pepper.

After dinner, we went to Bed, Bath and Beyond. This item reminds me of food screen at grandma’s house.

Strawberry Cheesecake Gelato @ Whole Foods

He got a slice of pizza.

I guess he was still hungry after the healthy dinner.

Enjoying wine with rice crackers while cooking dinner

Trying Sun Basket Meal Kit

Saigon Chicken Vermicelli Bowls ★★
It’s just ok for me. I prefer going to Vietnamese restaurants for soup noodle bowl.
