This week’s HelloFresh box has a lot of pleasers – Thyme, lemon, feta and, of course, garlic.
Sure to be a winner.
First up we have the Lemon Thyme Chicken with Pumpkin and Feta Couscous. Omg win!
Let’s just say Thyme is Bruce’s favourite not-so-secret ingredient, and lemon is mine. And just add in some salty Australian feta and fresh garlic!!! :)
Wish I could have marinated it for longer, but the box arrived at 6:25pm (the expected delivery windownis 12-6pm for Newcastle)… so straight to it! (Better than last week that wasn’t here til 6:45pm. I think we’re the last house before the delivery guy kits the highway back to Sydney for a sleep).
Wednesday was a Ginger Beef Stir-fry (which I get let marinate for the afternoon!)
I added a carrot cos we had some in the fridge, and substituted honey for the sugar. Used sesame oil in the pan (only thought of it after the marinade was done), and the usual tamari instead of soy because that’s what I own…. Yum!
Finally on Thursday night we had the vegetarian dish – Roasted Eggplant (Aubergine) and Pine Nut Pasta.
Again, my little heart couldn’t not fiddle a little – I added a few cloves of garlic to the roast tomato and eggplant, and juice from half a lemon to the final mix (they’d sent me an extra lemon, so why not?!)
Plus I got to use the teeny tiny frypan for the pine nuts!
Unfortunately I didn’t order a box for next week, but I think it might be a chance to try some of the other recipes that are in the 5 day boxes that always look so good – like the lemon and caper baked fish!! mmmm
