The more children we have and the older I get the less I can be bothered to make time for a date nights with my husband.
This is a huge bone of contention in our house as its something thats very important to him so we have to find a little bit of compromise.
Food is a big love for both of us so the perfect way to spend a little time together without the stress of going out is taking an evening or two away from the chaos of family meal times and preparing a meal for just the two of us.
This is however pretty time consuming so when we were asked to sample some meals from Gousto I thought this would be a great way to save some time and forethought in our very limited amount of alone time.
Gousto is so quick and easy to use. You simply need to log into their site, chose the size of box you require and select which meals you fancy from a varied list for the week ahead.
The box is then delivered directly to you door with all the ingredients carefully weighed out and prepared ready for you to follow the easy to use recipe cards that are provided alongside your food.
First up for us was a sticky chilli beef burrito with a lime mayo.
All I needed to do was to grab the bits I needed that are all listed in words and pictures for you on the sheet and get on with the cooking.
The rest of the week we got to sample a curried chicken and sultana rice with a spicy kick that was complimented perfectly by the sweetness of the dried fruit.
Sea bass on smoky chorizo chowder that teamed a gorgeously creamy chowder with the crispy skin of the melt in the mouth fish.
And finally a chicken, red pepper and lemongrass curry which bought a completly take on rice for me.
Meals can become something of a chore at times and the ability to pick something you might not ordinarily choose really opened my eyes to recipes that I would usually consider to time consuming to prepare.
If you are looking for something to take the monotony out of the weekly meals plans, need something that is a great time saver or simply fancy trying something a little different then I highly recommend you give Guosto a try.
*we were given this Gousto box for the purpose of this review and they are all my own, honest opinion.
