December has been a whirlwind month – from planning and organising Reya’s first birthday party – more to come on that later to Christmas lunches, work and packing for Kenya, I haven’t had a chance to sit down! All fun and games prepping for quiet time in January and a well-deserve break!
I’ve also run out of inspiration for new recipes, flicking through recipe books trying to find something that appeals is hard when you don’t know what it will taste like!! One of my closest friends told me about HelloFresh – a new and revolutionary way to cook: the company sends weekly boxes of fresh vegetables (or meat), condiments, seasoning and recipes to make something new. It’s such a clever idea and with the discount our box of three meals was only £11.
The recipes I made were:
- WIld mushrooom risotto
- Honey Roasted Autumnal Penne with Smoked Gouda
They were really easy to follow with clear instructions of how to make them and how long it will take. I have to say my recipes took longer but maybe I was cooking them slower than meant to. I’d say it’s a great Sunday afternoon lazy cooking session – the meals came out well and I’d say it’s worth having the boxes delivered. I was able to try out new recipes easily with all the ingredients at my fingertips.
Can’t wait to try another box in the new year!
