My Cook Box

You will all already know I love eating out, it’s something I share regularly on here. One thing you might not know though is that I am a huge fan of cooking too. I really enjoy cooking (and eating) new meals and our family favourites. When meal planning for the weekly shop though it is so easy to stick to meals you know how to make and that you know everyone likes. And eating the same thing week in week out gets boring pretty quickly! Meal subscription boxes take the weekly meal planning out, as well as saving on actual food shopping and weighing and measuring the ingredients. I recently heard about My Cook Box and had to give them a go.

Steeton Hall Gateway is the closest English Heritage site to us and somewhere we’ve never visited before.

Finding my perfect tea company in Adagio Teas *

I’m a huge tea fanatic, nothing makes me happier than having a mug of hot tea in my hand. For me tea solves everything, rough night – tea, celebrating – tea, bad day – tea… you get the idea! Being caffeine intolerant makes finding a range of teas difficult though. Most brands stock a generic decaf black tea and leave me looking at the flavoured teas longingly. Fortunately for me Adagio Teas stock a huge range of teas and a large selection of them are decaf.
