Once upon a time I ate incredibly well for 4 days in a row. Enjoying such vegetable rich suppers is rare in these tough economic times and none of them took longer than 30 minutes to prepare in the comfort of my own kitchen.
The delivery arrived at my house on Monday morning with all the ingredients I needed to make 4 supper dishes for 4 people and with such easy to follow instructions, even my husband could manage on his own. Daily Dish is ideal if you do quite a few business trips or for when your schedule is so jam packed you don’t have time to plan, shop and cook for your family. I did find that the 4 day meal planning break refreshed my kitchen mojo and I’ve found myself recreating a few of the Daily Dish recipes often.
Since we are dealing with fresh produce here, I strongly recommend that you follow the suggested meal plan as some of the veggies do go a bit meh as you reach the end of the week. The idea behind the 4 meals is that most people work 5 days a week and often some people would go out to eat once during that week or order in. For me it usually means toast for supper, on those days I didn’t remember to take something out of the freezer or make a plan to use up whatever is in the fridge to “create a masterpiece”.
This actually made me remember a favourite book I’ve read over and over called Scarlet Feather by Maeve Binchy, where one of the clients they cater for sneakily gets them to prep 6 meals for 2 people in her own serving dishes. She then serves these meals to her oblivious husband for supper every night, passing it off as her own cooking. Why 6 meals you might ask? Well, her husband treats her to fish and chips every Friday to thank her for “all the cooking she does during the week”.
