I’ll be dining alone this year, but don’t see why I shouldn’t do it in style.
My third recipe with HelloFresh, and – once more – one I thought I didn’t need a recipe for, and was pleasantly surprised.
My second HelloFresh meal, and it turned out really well. The bag for this recipe came with a nice big aubergine, an onion, some parsley, a can of butter beans, a carton of passata and some paprika. In the fridge I had the haddock that had come in their chill bag.
My choice for the first recipe was something that looked easy. A Jamie Oliver recipe for “Chicken Traybake”.
So, another week, another recipe box scheme. This week it is the turn of HelloFresh.
I’ve had a couple more Gousto boxes since my last post on the subject. All of the meals have been very nice, but this – Lemon Linguine With Crab – is one of the best I have cooked.
It seems that, during the day, I am only in danger of bingeing in the hour or so after I eat my first biscuit(s). After that, I seem as likely to take another biscuit as anybody else. So setting the Kitchen Safe to 2 hours takes the biscuits out of reach for that danger period of time, but leaves my options open for something later in the day.
The contents of today’s box.
So, later than expected. I don’t know why I am not finding time to cook properly, but the days just whiz by.
This is the second of the recipe boxes I am trying – Mindful Chef. After my experience with Gousto (which was totally satisfactory regarding what they supplied, but fell down in my execution of their recipes), I decided to wait until this week, when I was on holiday and had plenty of time.
