I’m back from holidays and not loving reality. Such a positive start to a blog post right? I feel like I could have extended my holiday for twice the length at least if money hadn’t have been an issue. If money wan’t an issue so much of life would be different wouldn’t it? But I had the most amazing time, and have so many experiences to share with you all…soon. For now let’s start with a recipe that was influenced by Morocco, where couscous is king.
Sunday funday? Sunday prep day? How do you organise your week? This week I’m doing the meal planning for you… for the 16th week in a row! Now if only I’d offer to do your shopping rather than only writing the lists – so selfish of me 😉
I love snacking, especially when you’re watching a movie or sharing some drinks with friends. This popcorn takes a simple snack to the next level, making it very grown up and even more addictive than the original. Look out.
When I say chicken stir fry I mean chicken and vegetable. And probably mostly vegetable. Because I really do see stir fry as a chance to eat as many delicious vegetables as possible. Using curry paste as the base of a sauce for a stir fry is so fantastic as it gets rid of so much of the prep time and delivers big on flavour!
Who doesn’t love a good sausage roll? We do these so well in Australia and I’ve been branching out occasionally recently and doing something I never thought I would. Eating vego sausage rolls. Sorry, ‘sausage’ rolls. I’m still calling them that as they’re the right shape and the same idea but just filled with veggies! Super nourishing and filling and all encased in flaky puff pastry.
This week I have some ridiculously yummy things in store for you. From pasta bake, to noodles, to grilled chicken salads there’s even a burger. It’s meal planning Sunday time and I’ve tried to take the difficult part out of it for you.
WAFFLES! I haven’t posted a waffle recipe since last year so thought it was probably about time. These are light and fluffy with a crisp exterior and they’re gluten free and dairy free. You could make them vegan by following the suggestions just before the recipe. And just in time for Easter brunch!
I don’t eat burgers as often as I would secretly like to, so when I do I want them to be really worthwhile. Full of flavour and super satisfying. This burger has all of that and is also full of wholesome ingredients.
Baked sweet potatoes make for such a good lunch or dinner! You can make these ahead of time and just reheat things when you’re ready to eat. They take a little bit of time in the oven but you’re just waiting for most of that time – there’s not lots you need to do to make them delicious. You can read a book, dance round the kitchen, have a glass of wine etc while you wait for the oven to do it’s thing.
Meal prep Sunday! There’s actually a roast recipe this week so if you’re thinking of doing a Sunday roast, or if the idea of a week day roast is ridiculous to you, then you could easily make that the recipe for Day 1. It’s a roast chicken though so achievable for a week day… as long as you’re not someone who gets home at 8, in that case roasts are definitely not for you on a week night.
