May Degustabox arrived early and in time for the bank holiday weekend.
It comes with a mixed theme combining the May bank holiday and the start of Summer with barbeques and the inclusion of a few healthier living products too. As always it never lets itself down with some lovely full sized products included.
Starting with the more healthier products we find Fuel 10K: Protibrick. (£2.69) it’s like weetabix but with added protein. Also the healthy snack bars from 9 Bar (£2.00) which taste quite good.
There’s a bottle of Balsalmic vinegar from famous vinegar producers Sarsons. This stuff goes well with salads, therefore adding to the Summer theme of the box and costs £2.00 per bottle.
This months 2 drinks are a non alcoholic ginger beer from Fentimans (£2.00) and a rather refreshing kids carton drink from Green Coco (£0.80) which is made with coconut juice.
The sweet stuff comes from Dalemans in the form of sweet caramel filled waffles which are just heavenly and even melt over a hot drink. £2.00
This Slim Pasta (£2.49) is good for lasagne. It’s probably not something I will use so I’ll be passing this on to my mother who will.
And then there is these 3 other products which I am grouping together for a good reason.
Using these 3 products I was able to make a lovely tasty bank holiday meal. All I needed to add, was some chicken fillets.
The Schwartz marinade in bag allow for meat or fish to be placed in s bag of sauce and left to marinade giving great flavour to dishes. My marinade is honey and soy so my dish has a very oriental feel to it.
The first thing to do is place my chicken fillets in the bag and leave for any amount of time from 15 minutes to overnight. I left mine for an hour and then oven cooked the fillets.
Once the chicken was cooked and sliced, I then took one pack of the Maggi stir fry noodles (oriental 3 spice). You cook these in a pan with cold water, add the satchet and boil for approx 5 minutes until the water dissolves. I then added the cooked chicken and mixed together.
Then served in a bowl and added a dollop of the Sweet Baby Rays sauce which is a lovely sweet and smoky barbeque flavour.
A lovely and very easy dish to make with a mild spicy oriental kick.
Here’s the Degustabox links tho if you have not grabbed yourself one by now then I think you may have been hiding out in a cave for the passed year or so! ?
