When I got there I was like, ‘nope’, and immediately fixed it. Later on that evening we ended up at China Bar eating their amazing fried rice and had a love-in over how much we both loved said fried rice. And dumplings, we’re also big fans of dumplings.

Pork and Vegetable Dumplings with a Sweet and Spicy Sauce

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m dumpling obsessed. They’re not just one of my favourite things to eat but one of my favourite things to make.

Whoop Whoop it’s meal plan time again! And it’s my last week of the Gut Makeover! This weeks PLAN A will again be gut makeover friendly for any of those thinking of doing it or just trying to eat less carbs.

LAMB, EGGPLANT AND ALMOND CURRY

I’ve made this curry 3 weeks in a row now. Partly because I was perfecting the recipe and partly because it’s delicious and comforting. The lamb is super tender and the eggplant is just starting to collapse into the sauce making it creamy and delicious. You need to stock your freezer with it now.
