Review of Last Week's New Meals: 
Coronation Chicken- Tim 8/10, Julie 8/10 - Ease to make 8.5/10. This was so easy to make and we just ate it on a bed of spinach leaves and with a piece of sliced bread. So it was partially salad, partially sandwich. It was really tasty. Basically just a curry version of chicken salad in my opinion. But I think it was a tad sweet and next time I would put in a bit less of the mango chutney. It's a GO!

Pesto Orzo- Tim 6.5/10, Julie 6/10 Ease to make 6/10 - It was a fair amount of chopping and sautéing and the flavor in the end didn't pay off for us. NO GO. 

Lentil Salad - I actually didn't get a chance to make this one and will most likely try it this saturday for lunch.
