This is a product talk brought to you by Nuffnang and dish’d
As a blogger, I get approached a lot by various companies, to review products, attend launches (though as a mom of three, product launches are hardly on the top of my oooh-got-to-do list), write advertorials and more.
This review was one which got me excited.
Have you heard of dish’d?
Well, in a short sentence, they sell yummy, delicious frozen meals. So that is yummy, delicious, frozen meals that I can whip together in minutes? I was cynical – but hey, it would at least mean I could have a lot more time outside the kitchen.
Coming into this, I had a few reservations about using frozen meals. Would it taste all weird and “plasticky”? (Eww! I hate the fake plastic taste that microwaving sometimes causes) Would it be healthy? And most importantly, is it delicious and palatable enough for the three picky eaters in the family?
The dish’d website was simple enough to navigate.
It was simple, user-friendly – and I loved the way they have a “Chef’s Special”, so if you need some ideas, that is a good place to start to check out the offers and bundles. Use the “Inspiration” tab to get ideas on how to whip up a complete meal with dish’d, and you can even see the best sellers (under “Menu”).
The servings and the method of preparation are all pretty easy and well written out. I had a blast and ordered TOO much stuff – but the great thing is, I can keep and there isn’t any wastage!
Here’s a sneak peek at my (very messy) freezer, packed to the brim with the items I bought – and more out of shot! The packaging stated clearly how many servings each item had, the cooking times (which is anything from 4 minutes in the microwave to 40 minutes to pan fry), and various methods available (microwave, pan fry or oven bake). I ordered a variety of dishes, to be able to do a proper review. (Plus I get to get away with not making dinner for the week!)
One of the very first things I cooked was the Five Cheese Pizza. Jayvon LOVES pizza and is always begging/bugging us to bring him to a nice pizzeria, but Xavier dislikes the taste of dough, so we aren’t able to eat that as often as Jayvon would love.
Yum! My almost 7-year-old finished up ¾ of the pizza all by himself!
And the rest of the frozen dishes didn’t disappoint – though of all the meals, my personal favourite were the marinated scallops.
Fresh, yummy marinated scallops – from the freezer to your mouth in just 4 minutes!
