Crispy Asian Beef Salad – 10sp

I love a good pulled meat as well as anything that can be slow cooked in the oven (or slow cooker) so when one of my lovely followers sent me a message about recreating a lovely Crispy Asian Beef Salad she had recently eaten in a restaurant, I knew I would be giving it a whirl fairly quickly.

Squid and Chorizo Pasta – 10sp

I’m always a fan of meals that I can whip up using the contents of my cupboards/fridge/freezer.

Thai Beef Noodle Salad – 10sp

Knowing how easy it is to cook up delicious and healthy meals quickly and easily has turned me into a bit of a picky eater when I’m eating out in cafes and restaurants. I have become a little inpatient with places which charge a fortune for food which is bland, oily and unsatisfying to the point where I just don’t see the point in eating it if it isn’t any good.
