This Week in the Model Meals Kitchen

Posted by Danika Brysha on

We were feeling pretty official this weekend with new official Model Meals uniforms. The white shirt isn't the best clothing option to jump into after a morning (organic, ok) spray tan but I'll just say it was cajun seasoning soaking through my fresh shirt. From breaking down Pasturebird chickens, to spicing up applesauce, to practicing every bit of willpower I have in order to not eat all your portions of Chef Tony's bacon, we had another great weekend of beautiful food-making! Thanks for letting us do what we love! We heart you!

Much like the theme of my personal life, the theme of this week was BACON. We sold our normal Big O Bacon "bitties" and we also sold our thick-cut bacon as our "Butcher's Choice". I threw some in my Chopped Chef's Salad and it was a lunch fit for a carnivorous queen. Our very own Chef Tony Thomason created this bacon specifically for Model Meals because it was so difficult to find a thick-cut bacon made without sugar and from high-quality clean pork. We love that we get to share it with you!

This Week in the Model Meals Kitchen

Well hello there. Last week in the Model Meals kitchen we were scrambling more than just eggs. With growing numbers it has been such a blast refining our systems and becoming more efficient in our little space. Chef Paul did the plating for our "Recipe of the Week" and I hovered over him like a puppy waiting for scraps. Janell's mom Janet has been helping out with packing on Saturdays and we're proud to present her with our "Intern of the Month" Award. I don't want to speak too soon but I'm thinking she might have a back-to-back victory in this category for quite some time. Check out our Pot Roast with Rutabaga Puree recipe over on the Recipes page so you can make your own Model Meals at home. And if it turns out really well, you can submit your resume to us if you're interested in challenging Janet for her title. (Not possible, sorry).

When Chef Lauren suggested "Cauliflower Falafel" we had to take a second to think about how that would translate. And boy oh boy did it translate! This new dish featured three delicious helpings of legume-free, Whole30 compliant "falafel" made from a handful of plant-based ingredients. We served it with our creamy "Tahini Beet Root Puree" and it was spectacular. It's our recipe of the week so that means you can make it for yourself at home! Love ya B. 

We had a blast listening to our beloved "Wedding Jams" playlist on Saturday night and I ate more bacon than anyone should have in one 24-hour period but YOLO.

So many exciting things happened in the Model Meals kitchen this weekend. Asparagus was back for the first time of the season and we featured it, clean and simple, in our Grilled Lemon Asparagus side dish. Next week you'll see it in our Avocado and Asparagus Frittata. The opportunities are quite endless! You guys loved our Lettuce-Wrapped Grass-Fed Beef Burger with Root Vegetables and our Carrot Zucchini Fritters with Tarragon Pesto. You'll definitely be seeing these superstars again too. Thanks for another great weekend!
