We have a running joke in our house where I ask the girls what they want for supper and EVERY night, without fail, they’ll say “green pasta”. They know very well that I only make this once a week but they still ask for it every night. Recently I’ve felt in a bit of a food rut, making the same old things week in, week out – you know, the usual suspects; Spaghetti Bolognese, Chilli & Rice, Roast Chicken, Pizza and so on. I wanted to change our diet to reflect the warmer weather and try something new, and a more exciting.
So when Marley Spoon contacted me to try one of their recipe boxes to celebrate Global BBQ Month (who knew?), I was more than keen. The box arrived as promised on a Tuesday morning and had the ingredients for two delicious recipes. The first was was Anglo-Indian Pork Burgers with a Roasted Carrot Salad and Raita, and the second was Honey and Mustard Chicken with Apple-Potato Salad. Both meals were equally good and totally different to our usual meals.
What I liked about this box is that the instructions for cooking the meat was given for using a BBQ, as well as a conventional oven. I made both recipes inside as the weather was pretty wet last week – and to be honest I feel more comfortable using my trusty old oven. However, it is good to have the option.
Marley Spoon boxes are well packaged and carefully created to insure you have all the pre-measured ingredients you’ll need to make the food shown on the step-by-step recipe cards.
Pork mince is not something I usually buy but since trying these Anglo-Indian Burgers, I’ve already bought pork mince to make them again!!
Also, I never would have considered putting apples and potatoes together to make a fruity potato salad but it really works.
Every week Marley Spoon change their recipes, so you’ll never receive the same box twice. There’s always a new dish to try and potentially a new recipe to add to your weekly meal plan. All the recipes are also on their website, so if you fancy trying something different, take a look!
