Blogmas Days 11 and 12 - Day off and Hello Fresh

Hello, I had a day off yesterday, sometimes it nice to have time away from the computer and social media.  You can find yourself looking at screen all day and not actually getting much done.  I didn't do any crafting either, last night I got engrossed in the dreaded tricky jigsaw, while watching The Holiday :-)

I signed up to Hello Fresh last week, just to get some more recipe ideas and get me back into enjoying cooking.  Both my boys are very fussy eaters so I end up cooking 2 or 3 meals most evenings which is a nightmare.  So I signed up for the Veggie box for just me and my husband so that it is one less meal to think about.   Last night was a Saffron Risotto, it was really delicious and I managed to cook it whilst the boys were playing outside in the snow. (*Just gone to cook my Hello Fresh meal for tonight and for some bizarre reason last night I used the wrong rice in my risotto, basmati not arborio)

Hello Fresh - Wrong rice!

This morning I spent some time doing website tasks, blog writing and also wrote my Christmas cards.  This afternoon I popped to see Mam to pick up an order to take to the post office before the school run pick up.
