Hello Fresh, How to reduce your weekly food spend and a giveaway


Hello Beach Dwellers
Need a little reduction on the weekly food bill?  Who doesn't?  I got one a month ago and it was such a great feeling, that I approached the company who gave it to me, in the hope of sharing my good fortune with you fabulous people, who constantly make my day.



So here's what happened.  Until recently I haven't entered giveaways, but then my gorgeous friend Sonia had a giveaway over on Life love and Hiccups.  Now I have about as much luck, as a lone chip on a football field of seagulls, but anyway I threw my hat in the ring. In the first instance just to support Sonia, but also in the secret, but mostly remote hope of winning a product related to food.  You know how I love to cook.  Well this time, 'the lone chip' survived and I won.  I won a big box full of beautifully fresh produce, with 3 recipes, delivered straight to my door.  I prepared the recipes over three nights.  They were fantastically simple and delicious.  They were healthy and they saved me a bomb on groceries that week. And I didn't have to spend time and effort shopping either.


There was Thai Green Curry Chicken


Prawn and Tomato Linguine in a white wine sauce


And Corn Fritters with a Tomato, Avocado and Coriander Salad and they were so dang good.


So I wanted to share the product with you. This may come in handy in the busy lead up to Christmas and save you money as well. Heck you could even gift it to someone living in the Hello Fresh delivery area.

  Hello Fresh are giving away one 2 person, 3 meal box to one of my readers. They even have a series of vegetarian boxes, if that takes your fancy.  They deliver to Sydney and have recently begun delivering in Melbourne and Brisbane ( if you are in Melbourne or Bris Vegas, you will need to go to the Hello Fresh website to check they deliver to your suburb.  To do this, once you get to their site, click on the  "Try Hello Fresh Now"  green button and pop your post code into their delivery locater.)

All you need to do to enter this giveaway, is follow me on one or more of the following platforms:
Google Friends Connect (over in my side bar)
Instagram @desireempire
Sharing this giveaway on one of your social media platforms will constitute another entry.
  Each extra follow or share requires an extra comment, to increase your chance to win. If you don't have a blogger account, that's fine, just comment as anonymous that you have followed somehow and leave an email address, so I can contact you should you win.




Hello Fresh are also offering MY GORGEOUS READERS a BIG discount on all their boxes, of $25 off per box. For example, the rrp. on the 3 meal box is $64, so that means a Classic box will cost $39 for 3 meals.  If you can do a gourmet meal this good without the time and cost taken to shop as well, for $13, I'm coming to live with you.  To receive the discount for this you will need to enter the code DESIREFORDINNER into your order at Hello Fresh.


Giveaway Terms and Conditions
This competition is open to entrants living in Sydney and the delivery areas for Hello Fresh in Brisbane and Melbourne.
This competition is open from now until 16 November 2012 12pm Australian EST.
The winner will be announced on this blog, Face Book and Twitter and I will contact you, as long as you have left a valid means.  You have 5 days to respond, otherwise the prize will be redrawn.
I was not paid to write this post, but I will receive a commission if you take advantage of the $25 discount per box.




So come on gorgeous ones, who doesn't need a break from the weekly grind that is think,shop, lug.
