Dinner twist

I must admit I was intrigued.
The concept is a box of groceries with all the ingredients for three mystery recipes.

I was a bit concerned that they wouldn’t really be ‘our style’. We can both be picky eaters about certain things. We both don’t like spicy food, I hate bananas, he doesn’t like rice. Sure the rice thing knocks out a whole heap of dishes, but pasta is an easy substitute.

So we got a box of mystery groceries and three recipes. All three were things I wouldn’t usually think to cook.
One was salmon with mustard baked carrots, a pork curry, and a salami, cottage cheese pasta.

All three meals where delicious in their own way.
But the best thing about it is being able to choose how you want to cook them.

Given that the Mister doesn’t like rice we had the curry with pasta instead. We got spicy Hungarian salami so we swapped it (with a work mate) for some less spicy salami.

Let’s see what we get this week!

    That’s a great idea! Have you worked out whether money wise this is cheaper or the same amount you’d pay for your own dinner invention? What’s the name of the company?

      I haven’t done the maths yet but it feels cheaper. As in I haven’t done a Coles shop since I started and I would come out of Coles spending a lot more.

      This weeks selection was even less to my Misters taste so I’m going to give it one more week to decide.
      The company name is dinner twist. And their website is dinnertwist.com.au

    The salmon looks awesome, as does the curry pork. Nice work :)

      I take no credit for the salmon. I’m not actually allowed to cook seafood. Mostly because my Mister is far superior and I’ll only ruin it.
      That was definitely the best dinner from the week.

    You really make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I feel I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very wide for me. I’m taking a look forward in your next publish, I’ll attempt to get the
    cling of it!

    I have been surfing on-line greater than three hours lately, yet I
    never found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s beautiful price enough
    for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did,
    the web shall be a lot more helpful than ever before.
