Classic Box Menu 11/18 to 11/24

It’s time to graduate from the chicken Caesar and introduce yourself to a new chicken and creamy salad combo that is—dare we say it—elevated. Here, panko-breaded breasts are given a pinch of lemon zest for a fragrant effect. Then, a spring mix and tomato salad with a rich, dairy-licious sour cream dressing is added to the side. Throw in some roasted potatoes and boom: welcome to the next level of dinnertime sophistication.

No matter which way you try to dress it up, a meatloaf is all about the meat. Which is why we’re adding little more than a few breadcrumbs to keep it moist and a smattering of balsamic ketchup glaze to keep things interesting. That’s all you really need (along with some green beans and mashed sweet potato) to emphasize the classic timelessness of this dish.

Wanna know one of our secrets for speeding up dinner prep? It’s enlisting your dinner mates to do the work. Well, technically, you’ll still be making sure that the veggies and pork are nicely spiced and the tortillas are warm and toasty for these fajitas. But when you set everything out buffet-style and let everyone assemble their own (just the way they like it), you save yourself a big step.

Let’s take tilapia to the next level and turn it into a Tex-Mex-style triumph on your plate. The firm-fleshed fish is given a dusting of panko breadcrumbs and our Southwest spice blend, which ensures that it has a bit of satisfying crunch and zesty flavor in every bite. The couscous, green beans, and lime crema that accompany it come together in a flash, too, meaning you’ll have this masterpiece of a meal on the table in a matter of minutes.

The backbone of this dish is orecchiette—a round-shaped pasta named for the “little ears” they resemble. The pasta is tossed with bites of broccoli and sweet sausage, and then given a nice coating of basil-packing pesto and Parmesan cheese. It works wonderfully as a side dish for 6-8 hungry mouths (just in time for Thanksgiving), but you can also enjoy it as a meal for two any night of the week.

You can think of gremolata as pesto’s more rustic cousin. It features several of the same ingredients—herbs, almonds, and a good glug of olive oil—but it’s chopped by hand to give it a coarser texture and mixed with a squeeze of lemon for additional tanginess. When drizzled onto skirt steak, it provides a vibrant contrast to the richness of the meat. Plus, it melds seamlessly into the creamy cauliflower mash and heirloom tomatoes that accompany this dish.

Gobble gobble: it’s time for Thanksgiving! There’s no way we weren’t going to pull out all the stops for a holiday that’s all about food (and giving thanks… but mostly food). So we’re offering up a special stuffing that will be welcome on any feasting table. It’s got cranberries, sage, toasty bread, and our special harvest spice blend. All you need to make it complete is a few of your other favorite Thanksgiving dishes (and six to eight hungry mouths to feed it to).

Beef and broccoli over rice is a tried-and-true Asian-style favorite. But to get it just right, you’ve got to hone in on more than just the beef or the broccoli—really, it’s all about the sauce, which can make or break the dish. Luckily, we’ve got a good one: we’re blending creamy peanut butter with garlic and soy, then drizzling it all over to create waves of savory flavor throughout.
