So this week I got another delivery from Hello Fresh. I have tried them quite a few times but I never was quite convinced. This week however I was impressed. Had 5 very good meals for the price of £15 as I had a half price offer and £10 credit, If I had bought the box without discount or then £10 off it would have cost me £50 which is a lot. I’m still not convinced; I would pay the full price for it.
I must admit that the products you get from Hello Fresh and also the recipes are excellent. It is also convenient as everything is in the right portions, if you need 1 carrot that is what they have provided you with.
Next time I make this dish I would cook the steak on a griddle pan then slice it after so it is nice and rare. Alternative it should probably be made in a wok instead of the flat pan I decided to use.
I was amazed that even Baby Blip ate the noodles and beef; he did leave the broccoli though. We are still working on getting him to eat vegetables.
