Happy Valentine’s Day!
February is a month of joy and celebration at home… I can count on so many occasions this month. Starting right from my Son and Betterhalf celebrating their birthday on the 13th to ‘US’ celebrating our Wedding Anniversary on Valentine’s Day!
The early day’s of Feb is usually spent in deciding on the theme, presents, menu etc for birthdays and valentines. This year, we celebrated an early Valentine’s day at home doing things we love. We actually revamped the whole dining room ourselves, giving it a makeover and it has made us super proud. For the first time in many many years, we actually didn’t surprise each other with presents for Valentine’s instead we planned and treated ourselves to a gorgeous Solid Wood dining table.
We decluttered a Bookcase, got rid of things that unnecessarily took an essential space in our dining room, painted a feature wall and gave a makeover to my missy’s toy chest. All these little things along with a little bit of spruce up made our dining room so cozy and beautiful.
As a family, we eagerly wait for this time of the year for a mini celebration between us and a mega party for friends and family! This Year, we have teamed up with Wayfair and HelloFresh to create the perfect Valentine’s day, much different from our usual way! But we all loved it.
I have heard of Hello Fresh recipe concepts but we trying them for the first time. It was perfect for us to actually cook up a fab meal in just about 40 minutes. All the fresh, pre-portioned ingredients you need to cook delicious weekly recipes are delivered straight to your door.This actually works like a treat when we really want to cook healthy & variety meals for busy families like us.
What I really enjoyed about the meal boxes from Hello Fresh is that all the ingredients are pre-portioned and there is absolutely no wastage. The step by step recipe cards gives clear directions even for a non-foodie to get them right! I made Veggie Shepherds Pie for the first time and the whole process was fun! The portion size is quite generous and it worked well for our family! For Vegetarians like us, we really enjoyed picking tasty recipes from around the world and classics.
