Marvellous & microwaveable

I have been happily slurping my way through microwave meals this week… not something I usually do. The microwave (not the slurping – if no-one is around I frequently eat that way!). Anyhow, I am now hooked on 4.5 mins worth of deliciousness called The City Kitchen. As a country wife, you may well wonder why I am attracted to something that sounds so urban… but I only had to read the labels of these ready meals to be adding a couple to my trolley – and going back for more this week.

Marvellous & microwaveableI tried this one first and I was surprised how fresh it tasted: “Cooked jasmine rice and marinated chicken in a green Thai coconut sauce, served with carrots & pak choi” – yum. And the bonus? Only 376 calories. If you hurry, Tesco have a special offer – £6 for two (usually £3.80 per pack or thereabouts). There are quite a few different recipes available.

Sorry, got to dash – the ping of my microwave is signalling that my Shredded Hoisin Duck Noodles are ready…
