Foodbox Menu 1


This the first week of our Foodbox deliveries. If I didn’t plan out a menu, we wouldn’t have a hope of finishing all the produce.

I have decided to receive a Foodbox once a fortnight instead of once a week.

I rediscovered a jar of laksa paste in our fridge so features heavily on this week’s menu. I got personal with the paste and a free range chicken at the start of the week and a spatchcock chicken led to dinner for two and 2 lunches.

    • Very observant Eva 🙂 We do have a tree but it’s pretty much finished with it’s intense but short season. At it’s peak, it drops about 10 fruit a day but now it’s petered back down to 1-2 fruit a day. So some extras delivered for the week (or two) is welcome in this house.

    Wow, this is a GREAT idea. We’re moving soon but I’ll have to look into doing something like this once we get settled in.

    • Once your kitchen is up and running, it’s a good thing to do while you’re still busy and can’t really be bothered going to the markets. I hardly ever buy fruit so it’s one way to ensure weekly fruit intake.

  2. My husband just took one look at your hash brown and about leapt through the screen. Great job!

    • Yes, I would say it’s a man sized hash brown! Check back later this week for my recipe. It’s actually very simple, even a man could do it 🙂

    • Yes, they’re nice and crisp on the outside. You could make these flatter and therefore crisper, but my pan only allowed for two smaller, fatter patties. Though I could have probably fit 4 patties of the same diameter.

    • I have to admit, there isn’t usually very much in the crisper! I keep it pretty lean when I don’t have deliveries. Mostly because I normally eat what I can carry. I can’t carry all that much so not much goes to waste.

I love your comments! Your comments are like extra melted cheese on top.
