Hello Fresh Box #5 - May 2015

Unfortunately this is going to be our last Hello Fresh box for a while, as much as we love them it is an expense that we can't really afford with me being on maternity leave. Not that the boxes are overly expensive, if we bought the ingredients in the supermarket it probably wouldn't cost much less, but we can't afford to buy the ingredients in a supermarket either! 

If you are unfamiliar with Hello Fresh then read my introductory blog post here, otherwise carry on reading to see the delicious recipes in this three meal classic box.

Hello Fresh Garlicky Courgette Chicken Gratin with Roasted New Potatoes and Steve's Leaves
Garlicky Courgette Chicken Gratin with Roasted New Potatoes and Steve's Leaves. 414 Cal, 15g Fat.




This was the simplest dish that I have cooked with Hello Fresh so far, there were five ingredients and that includes the leaves, potatoes and chicken! As well as being very easy to make it is also one of my Hello Fresh favourites, I've even gone on to make this meal myself since this box.

Another beautiful meal and top quality ingredients. The steak was huge with no fat or gristle running through it, I can't imagine how much this would cost to buy and am pretty sure that this addition made this box very good value for money. Everything about this meal was delicious, Spencer was a huge fan of the oil drizzle, I liked it but would add less chilly next time. This was definitely the star of the box.

Another beautiful meal full of flavour. The pasta all stuck together which was quite annoying but the flavours in the dish more than made up for the inconvenience of sticky pasta! 

Typically, as I had to cancel my subscription after this box, this was the best box that I think we've ever had, which is quite an achievement as we ordered less meals than we usually do! 

If you would like to try Hello Fresh for yourself then don't forget to use my referral code J6J5KN to get £20 off your first box. Please do so that I can afford another box! 

Bye for now Hello Fresh, hopefully I'll see you soon.
