Taste test
Very nice. Taste of the spices but not hot. lots of veggies which were not over, or under, cooked. No gristly bits in the chicken, rice not claggy. Plenty of taste in the veggies – and an impressive 19% veggies.

Use again
Definitely.

    If frozen meals all looked this good, I’d probably try and eat more of them. It looks so fresh and, really, homemade.
    We used to have a Marks & Spencer here in Windsor, Ont, Canada but sadly they’ve not been around for a long time.
    I’ve never heard the expression ‘claggy’ before. What’s it mean?

    Hi Karen, it’s chilled rather than frozen which I’ve found makes a big difference. Claggy? kind of sticky in a bad way.

  3. Karen Says:

    Thanks, Jacqi. I’ve never seen a chilled meal here come to think of it.
    I’ve been feeling claggy in this humid weather ;0)
    Your photos are gorgeous and I think I’ve seen everyone of them on your Flikr stream!
    I hope you find success with your meal plans!

    I’ve had a trainer before so I know my way around the weights. I found it really helpful to learn how to properly lift without hurting myself. I no longer have a gym membership but I have a set of free weights at home and a bench. I found too many excuses not to go to the gym & wasted alot of $$$. I have a spare bedroom that I’m setting up for my ‘gym’.
    It’s phenomenal how quickly you see results, eh?
