Once in a while I love to get the table all prepared nicely and have a posh dinner with Andy and the boys whether it be a home made Chinese dinner to a pulled pork and batches help yourself kinda table.
So when ilumi asked me to celebrate their 1st birthday, by inviting 3 guests for our own dinner with three delicious menus to choose from, and some gluten free beer thrown in for good measure I knew I had the perfect guests already living under my roof. (Although I long to have a really good girlie night!).
ilumi are and ready-prepared meals, which are all free of nasty allergens and are absolutely delicious. They create meals that are tailored to boost your health and wellbeing, are all free from gluten which is believed to lead to a reduction in bloating, clearer complexion and increased energy.
I chose the chinese range to try Here is our Menu:
For starters we had Tom Kha Gai Soup which was yummy. I had already decided I probably wasn’t going to like it when I seen it but I was wrong. It was quite yummy, so much so that Baby J asked if he could finish his daddy’s too and then continued to do so!
For the main the boys had weet Five spice & Chilli pork with Yellow Basmati rice when I asked Ky to let me have a quote on how he felt about it he said “it was really really nice” and that pretty much answers it for me when Ky enjoys things, although he loves his food he is much more picky than the rest of us. He did however say it was spicy and then ate it all. Job done.
Andrew chose the same as the boys and too enjoyed his meal. He works in a factory and he thinks the pouches will be brilliant to take to work rather than sandwiches too as they are nicely sized and they also contain nicely sized pieces of meat.
I chose the Beef in Black Bean sauce with white long grain rice, I found it to be really yummy but it definitely gives a nice kick too. All in all it was a successful and must less hassle family dinner party.
Happy Birthday Ilumi!
