My hubbie thinks I’m a bit of a weird one as breakfast is often my favourite meal of the day, especially at weekends when I have a chance to spend a little longer thinking about what I might have! This little recipe came about after we had baked sweet potatoes and corn on the cobs for our tea the night before. I made extra so I had leftovers and this quick and tasty little breakfast recipe was the result. Best of all, now sweetcorn and eggs are both free, this recipe is only 4sp per serving!
I’m always trying to come up with new, quick and easy weekday and ‘on the go’ lunches using up the contents of my fridge. A few weeks ago, being once again in this dilemma, I threw together this recipe and was more than pleasantly surprised with the results. For only 7sp you get a lovely, filling dish packed with flavour and punch. It’s the perfect dish to whip up if you’ve got back on the wagon post Christmas/New year and want healthy and flavour all in one!
My hubbie and I love all things hot and so I’m always on the lookout for new spicy additions to our weekly menu. After visiting a food festival a few weeks ago and enjoying the most delicious Jamaican brown chicken wrap I decided to give this dish a go for myself by transforming it into a stew.
As most of you know I am a little bit obsessed with Mexican cuisine so this week, when I defrosted some chicken breast, I thought, time for a new recipe! Having wanted to get some pineapple salsa on the go for a while too, I thought now was the perfect time to pair them up.
Sunday night came and, having had a rather filling lunch, the OH and I decided that a salad was pretty much all we could manage for dinner. But even though we fancied something light, I also wanted something that would be packed with flavour to leave me feeling nice and satisfied until the next day. The result was just that and really hit the spot. I used smoked bacon in the recipe below but if it’s not your cup of tea, feel free to use unsmoked.
When we were on our honeymoon in Sri Lanka we ate A LOT of Sri Lankan food so by the time by got to the last day, we were ready for a change. We stumbled across the most beautiful café with a view over the ocean and watched a turtle playing in the sea whilst we poured over the fantastic menu. I ended up going for a tuna burger which is something I had never had before and I immediately knew I would be having it again. It was such a change from a meat burger, full of flavour and fantastically healthy. So this week, when I fancied a new burger, I thought it was time to give one a go myself. The end result was lovely, really fresh and flavoursome and so low in points.
