Ah thanks. DH doesn't like lemongrass so it's one I've not chosen.

Was very nice and easy to do, limited washing up. Probably not my favourite of the box, but husband liked it a lot. Possibly Parmesan/Pecorino would have been a better cheese than cheddar. Also a lot less salty than some of the earlier dishes, far fewer ‘add salt and pepper’ instructions. Made a HUGE amount, would easily have served three.

As an aside, I’ve found many recipes on the website, not currently available in boxes, but some good ideas.
We've had that before and enjoyed it

It would probably be easy to leave it out and I think it would still be tasty.

Tonight's meal was a 10 minute turmeric cod with curried lentils. This portion had most of the lentils. Was ok but wouldn't do it again.

This was tonight's delight.

It was nice but bizarrely after what I said yesterday about salt, it needed more of it!

The recipe says to put plenty of salt on the cheese after it was browned and I only put a pinch but it did need more.

It was the first all veg recipe we have had. My 12 year old son hates green veg so I blended some of the sauce up to trick him and it worked...he's eaten more tonight than ever before. Not told him yet!
