Hello Fresh

Hubby mentioned last week that he'd ordered a Hello Fresh box for 2 people for 3 days.  I know a lot of bloggers have already done these posts but to keep him happy I said I'd share what we ate.

The food was delicious and I loved how everything was weighed out for each of the days - even the flour!  We only needed to add salt, pepper and oil.

On day 1, we had Cod with Truffle Mash and Roasted Leeks - this was delicious, a decent size piece of cod with earthy truffled mash.  The leeks were yummy and definitely a vegetable I'd have again.  On day 2, we ate Chicken Yakitori with Crispy Red Onions and Sweet & Sour Noodles - the chicken was marinaded with garlic, rice vinegar and soya sauce.  After being grilled it was meltingly soft and tasty.  I'm not a huge noodle fan and they were tasty enough but I felt they could have done with a bit more chilli heat.

We both really loved Thick Cut Pork Chops with Sage Butter and New Potatoes - nom nom nom!  Such a simple dish but so, so tasty.






I was helping out and put the garlic in the crusher instead of cutting it in half and rubbing on the pork - it still tasted gorgeous regardless of me making an error!  The potatoes tasted like hot potato salad - simply delicious and the pork was so tender.  All the flavours went really well together - it's a dish I'd make again.

You can get £20 off your first order by using code THATBZ.  

3 meals for 2 people costs £39, 5 meals for 2 people costs £49.  You can see costs for 4 or 6 people here.
