Easy dinner recipes with Daily Dish and how we survived the week that was

The week that we survived

This delivery of four family dinners which was delivered at my office was what saved us from eating really badly this past week. The week that was but we survived! Yes, survived. Dude was unexpectedly called for shift duty for the entire week. Dudie had a project, oral and autobiography that needed to be completed. This is besides the normal daily homework. And I felt like I was drowning at work.  Now add a sick baby, aka Troll, to this and somewhere something was bound to be neglected.

Daily Dish ensured that we were had healthy dinners

How resourceful –  they minimise waste and send you only what is required for your meal. Every spice/sauce is accurately measured according to the recipe.

Our aim is to provide our customers with ingredients that are highest quality, fresh, seasonal, local, and sustainably produced. We get our food directly from the Fairview farm and other local fresh produce and free range farms to ensure that we deliver only the very best produce… Daily Dish

Fresh produce straight from the farm. I tried as best as I could to get Dudie to help prepare the vegetables but my attempts fell on deaf ears. Granted, I could’ve tried harder but I decided to let him be and just allow the control freak in me to do it the way I wanted to. Here is what we ate this past week:

About last night's #dinner sponsored by @dailydishforyou #psa life as we know it is crazy at the moment. Dude having to deal with work crises and extended hours. . Me sort of #soloparenting for the week. Homework, speeches, projects AND Troll is sick! . At least dinner was good. Dudie helped out by rolling the cigar shaped #kofta and I managed to get food on the table by 18:15 😉 * all the meals are relatively easy to preapre SO get your kid(s) to help create good food 🤗 This picture was taken with a sick, niggly baby on my arm. It's the behind the scenes things that people don't know of… 📣 also I managed to get a short video of Dudie making the koftas. . A review of this week's dinners will follow. Promise 😉 . . #spiritedmama #foodie #kidsactivities #cooking #latergram #cookingwithkids #momlife #sickkids #lifeiswhatyoumakeit #eatwell #eat #healthyfood #familytime

Troll is still on the mend. However, Dudie has now also caught whatever is currently doing the rounds in our house. Both kids are SICK!

Daily dish is convenient and saves YOU time

You don’t have to set foot in a store to buy ingredients. They do the shopping for you 🙂 Convenient much? Talk about time management.

Each dinner comes with a beautifully printed recipe card, outlining the method and preparation time required. I find it difficult to follow a recipe as the rebel in me doesn’t want to play by those rules. I cook with emotion so you can be sure that you will taste my emotion in my food. Even on the days that my emotions were drained out of me, dinner still tasted good 🙂  Let’s just say that the recipes are fool proof!

What you get when you order a box from Daily Dish

Your 4 dinners will be delivered to you at home or work – you decide. The ingredients are kept in a refrigerated box to ensure that it stays fresh. You just need to refrigerate it at home, within 12 hours of delivery. Each ingredient is labelled for the meal it is intended to be used for and it boasts a best before date.

Familiar BUT healthy and innovative meals

Looking for healthy dinner recipes? Menus change weekly to ensure that you don’t eat the same boring mundane meal at dinner time every.single.week. The meals are innovative in using ingredients that you normally might not use in your daily cooking routine. Daily dish offers a variety of dinner boxes to suit YOUR dietary requirements. You can choose a box for 2-4 people or a solo box for 1 person. Dinner boxes range from a family box/classic box/ banting box/vegan box/goodie box or a pork free box.

As a family, or rather I made the decision on behalf of them, to make healthy food choices so these easy to cook dinners rings true to my strategy. 

As a side note – they also have a WINE box option, if you’re interested 🙂 

My Dude, aka the husband, was skeptical about these dinners as he feels our or rather his portion size compared to someone else’s portion size might not correspond. The proof was in the pudding when even Dude agreed that the portion sizes were very generous indeed.

So here’s something for YOU from Daily Dish & Spirited Mama!

The Battle of the Warriors!!! + WIN

It’s not often that you find a family friendly event that caters for more than one person’s needs. And it’s right on my doorstep 🙂  The event offers boxing, pole dancing, choreographed dance routines, comedy and music! Should make for a very entertaining Sunday. Who wants to join us?

The warriors are coming

Champions from around the world will face off in an epic battle that will test strength, stamina and skill in an international fight to see who will be the ultimate best. This is no ordinary contest: it’s The Battle of the Warriors, a boxing extravaganza, and it will be coming to The Sun Arena, Times Square on 26 August 2018.

Eighteen men and women will fight it out for the championship title in what promises to be one of the most exciting international sporting events in the country this year. The matches held feature champions exclusively, lasting nine bouts each, providing riveting entertainment for the audience.

“We’ve secured top athletes in their divisions from around the globe to test themselves in this arena. To celebrate women’s month, Ivana Habazin from Croatia will be getting in the ring with Gifty Amanua Ankra from Ghana. International heavyweight, Vlad Sirenko, currently labeled as the most lethal fighter on African soil, will be stepping onto the battlefield against Nuhu Azuma, What we will see on 26 August, really, is a real clash of the titans,” says Jani Hebler, of 5th Element Promotions, the organiser of the event.

Entertainment for everyone, not just boxing

Performances from South African favourites such as Dr Victor and the Rasta Rebels as well as Dozi and his band. The SA Medieval Combat Team will also be displaying their prowess in demonstrations in between bouts, in preparation for the world championships.

It’s not all about the boxing, though. Spectators will also be able to enjoy specially choreographed performances from the current South African champion dance team, as well as witness the gravity defying acrobatics from South Africa’s pole dancing champions.

Also, I need to laugh a little more. I can’t wait to listen to… My Cousin, aka Barry Hilton!

“With comedy legend, Barry Hilton, as master of ceremonies for the event, it can be certain that Battle of the Warriors will indeed have something for everyone. There is no doubt that this event has indeed brought together the very best of the best,” says Hebler.

Tickets for this exhilarating event are available through Quicket.
