Long weekend fun and eats with My Foodie Box

It’s been a while since our last long weekend so this one is well deserved for sure! Normally footy finals take over Melbourne around this time of the year. But 2021 isn’t a normal year, just like 2020 wasn’t. With Melbourne currently under another lockdown, all of the AFL finals been played elsewhere with the grand final also being played out of Victoria for the second year in a row. Us West Australians get to host an AFL Grand Final for the first time in history! Not into footy? You can still look forward to a long weekend! Either way it’s a fun excuse to throw a long weekend get-together at home with some delicious bevs and fuss-free food. When you are gifted with an extra day at the weekend, it’s time for some lazy and easy cooking so that you have more time for all the fun long weekend activities with your loved ones.

We source, we prepare and we deliver awesomely fresh and WA local ingredients along with easy-to-follow recipe cards – let’s bring fun back into your kitchen!
