It’s been a while since I last used my soup maker. I’m not sure why, cos it is so easy.
But I recently bought 5kg of Cornish Blue cheese, discounted due to Covid-19 and reduced sales to restaurants. Most of it has been vacuum packed and stored in my freezer, but I kept some to use now; and by coincidence Riverfords have sent me two large brocolli heads.
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.
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.
