Simple Summer Date Night Ideas with HelloFresh #SummerIsSocial

This is a sponsored post with HelloFresh through The Motherhood.

It’s summer which means the kids are home and we are busier than ever. I find myself craving time with my husband and yet with the kids home and our schedules busy it’s hard to find the time. The one thing my husband enjoys is spending time in the kitchen. His cooking skills have gotten much better and he’s quite the chef. That’s why we find ourselves spending time making and preparing meals together.
We recently had the chance to try out HelloFresh, a unique meal service that sends you everything you need to make three delicious meals right at home. Right away I liked that the HelloFresh meals were packed full of flavor and quite unique. Many of the dishes are ones I wouldn’t try myself so it was nice to get to explore new flavors.

Our first box arrived with everything for three meals – a Watermelon and Farro Salad with Mozzarella, Cucumber, and Black-Pepper Candied Pecans, there was also a Juicy Lucy Burger with Tomato-Red Onion Jam and Charred Romaine and Garlic Lime Chicken with Avocado Salsa Verde and Spiced Honey-Butter Corn.

The first recipe I wanted to try was the garlic lime chicken. So my husband and I spent some time the kitchen enjoying one anothers company creating this meal.

I really think the honey butter on the corn with the jalapenos made this dish truly fantastic. It’s spicy and fresh and most of all flavorful. I would easily see us making this dish again and again. HelloFresh Charred Garlic-Lime Chicken (1)

I really think the highlight is the roasted corn. The recipes were very easy to make and my husband enjoying making this dish with me. It was a simple way to spend that quality time together and we can do this every night and keep exploring more flavors with HelloFresh.

    I would so love a service like this! It takes the shopping aspect out of meal preparation and that saves time! Fab!

    I have got to try that corn, it looks SO SO good! Would be a perfect side for a date night!



  8. Brandy on July 24, 2015 at 2:05 pm

    OH this is such a great idea for a Summer date night, thanks for sharing a yummy idea 🙂



  9. Shell on July 23, 2015 at 6:13 pm

    I love the Hello Fresh meals. We didn’t stick with them because it’s a little pricey for a family of 5, but my younger brother and his wife ordered them every week for a year.



  10. Amy @ Marvelous Mommy on July 23, 2015 at 4:40 pm

    Oh very cool! This would be a great way to try new foods!



  11. Rosey on July 23, 2015 at 3:35 pm

    I can see why you’d make this dish over and over again. I think it sounds delicious.



  12. Kelly Hutchinson on July 23, 2015 at 2:39 pm

    I have corn in the fridge and I am totally going to try and make the jalapeno and honey butter for it. Yummy.



  13. Angie | Big Bear's Wife on July 23, 2015 at 2:28 pm

    I’ve heard such amazing things about HelloFresh! That meal looks so good!



  14. Christie on July 23, 2015 at 12:36 pm

    This definitely sounds like a fun date night in idea! I haven’t heard of HelloFresh, but sounds so delicious!



  15. Chrystal | YUM eating on July 23, 2015 at 11:55 am

    Hello Fresh sounds fabulous. I have tried a few fresh delivery companies and they were each great. I like the idea of a gourmet meal being all planned out for me.



  16. Kristi on July 23, 2015 at 10:49 am

    I think I know what will be for dinner at our house tonight! Thanks for the menu ideas!



  17. Susanna @Zealous Mom on July 23, 2015 at 8:46 am

    Yum, that looks delicious! I’ve heard of this service but have never used it.



  18. Jeanine on July 23, 2015 at 7:56 am

    My husband and I could use another date night. We haven’t had one in a long while, and we stay in for our date nights (6 kids, its kind of the only way) so this would be great. That corn looks amazing.



  19. Crystal on July 23, 2015 at 7:43 am

    That corn looks insanely yummy. We are hosting this month’s neighborhood BBQ, and I was looking for something, like this, that was a little special.



  20. Janet W. on July 23, 2015 at 4:14 am

    What a delicious meal!! The roasted corn looks great!



  21. Sabrina on July 22, 2015 at 10:30 pm

    We love these meal boxes! They make cooking so easy and introduce different flavors!



  22. Fariha N. on July 22, 2015 at 8:54 pm

    Everything looks great but the corn is my favorite also. There is just something about roasting that makes it extra good. YUM!



  23. Dawn on July 22, 2015 at 8:28 pm

    All of this food looked amazing. I would love a date night such as this.



  24. Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly on July 22, 2015 at 7:58 pm

    Roasted Corn is one of my summer favorites, YUM! Hello Fresh sounds like a fun way to try out new recipes, and not ‘over shop’ and then have to toss stuff, great way to have fresh ingredients on hand, thanks for the share!



  25. Debbie Denny on July 22, 2015 at 7:52 pm

    What great meals. Sounds awesome and tasty.



  26. Jaime on July 22, 2015 at 6:20 pm

    I’ve read a little about HelloFresh. I would love to try it out. The Garlic Lime Chicken with Avocado Salsa Verde and Spiced Honey-Butter Corn sounds so good!



  27. Maureen on July 22, 2015 at 5:30 pm

    HelloFresh is the best! I am so happy to have a meal made and not have to go to the store to get it done.



  28. Elisabeth on July 22, 2015 at 4:06 pm

    I love this for a date night idea!



  29. Robin (Masshole Mommy) on July 22, 2015 at 4:01 pm

    Roasted corn with honey butter sounds fantastic! I’ve got to have my husband grill up some of that.



  32. Pam on July 22, 2015 at 2:18 pm

    This sounds like an awesome way to try new recipes. I would love to try that chicken you made, it looks delicious.
