Another box of foodie goodies has arrived through the post from Degustabox and we have been enjoying trying out some new things. Cirio Borlotti Beans are great in casserole dishes with sausages or pork. We regularly use them in a spicy chorizo dish and in my cowboy stew. A bowl of Miso Tasty Miso Soup is perfect for lunchtimes when I am on my own. They are full of goodness and are really low-calorie. Mrs Crimble’s Fusilli is a gluten free corn fusilli pasta with a mushroom and cream sauce, it’s the perfect size for a lunch for one or a side dish for two. I’ve been enlivening a rather dull muesli with some of these Chia Bia Whole & Milled Chia Seed Sachets. They are a really handy size and are good for you being packed with Omega 3 as well as lots of vitamins and minerals.
Lunch boxes this week have been pepped up a little by some new treats. The Metcalfe’s Popcorn Thins have provided a delicious chocolatey crunch. Get Fruity Bars are a fruit and oat bar that are heavy on the fruit. Yummy! Hartley’s No Added Sugar Jelly Pots add some fun to a packed lunch. More of a crunch and a little savoury flavour has come from Say Yes to No Bread Chips, surprisingly tasty and something different.
On the drinks front Cape Drinks have provided some welcome refreshment on the sunny days we have been enjoying. I particularly enjoyed the Peach & Passionfruit flavour. They are a sparkling blend of anti-oxidant packed Rooibos Tea and delicious fruit juices. We’ve added a little interest to drinks of water with Teisseire Sirop. It’s a lovely soft and fruity raspberry taste with a fresh cranberry flavour.
