Meal Planning Monday 5 December 2016

What’s cooking this week? I’m half in, half out. Mr Roast Chicken’s away which means I can eat whatever, whenever and however I like. Roll on lots of cheese and nibbly bits for supper🙂 Monday lunch – Cottage Cheese with Chives on Oatcakes Monday dinner – Out🙂 Tuesday lunch – More Cottage Cheese with Chives…

Easy Kimchi Salad Bowl

I’ve been wanting to make my own kimchi for ages – but it’s one of those things I’ve just never got round to. Until now, I’ve only ever had it in Korean restaurants, or out of a jar. It’s much easier to make than I would have thought – the only stumbling block is that…

Wonderful Wednesday 16 November 2016

Hello everyone! How have you all been this last week? It’s a funny time of year I think. The weather’s turning (up here at least) and it’s not quite time to start thinking about Christmas, but Autumn in all its leafy glory is starting to fade as the storms blow the leaves away. Here’s what’s…

Meal Planning Monday 14 November 2016

Anyone got a way of eating more fish? Apart from just obviously, eating more fish?? I do like fish, I just find it a little hard to think of ways to cook it. Fish pie is obviously delicious, and it’s nice to just have it simply with lemon juice, new potatoes and peas, but after…

Thai Green Curry with Scallops and Purple Sweet Potato

Apologies once again for another blurry and steamy photo but I just had to get stuck into this hot bowl of deliciousness. It’s a blow-yer-head-off kinda dish, not for the faint hearted, but that’s sometimes just what you need no? A cold glass of rose was perfect with this, a tinge of sweetness standing out…

Cabbage, Apple and Cashew Salad with Peanut Dressing

Ooh I do love a good salad. Especially after a couple of weeks of delicious meat-feasting. I think it’s amazing how the body knows exactly what it needs. Starving after exercise? Need some more fuel. Can’t stand the thought of alcohol after a heavy night? Let your liver rest. Yesterday I was craving some sharp…

Meal Planning Monday 7 November 2016

Hello! I’ve  had a little break away which has done me no end of good. I feel full of beans and don’t really want to go back to normal. But foodwise – I do. And speaking of beans, I’m actually full of meat. We’ve indulged on holiday in fine wines, local meats and LOTS of…

Meal Planning Monday 17 October 2016

There’s a lot of eating out this week so this one’s pretty short. Because I’m eating out a lot I’m trying to make my home cooked meals and lunches extra healthy – I never seem to be able to cram as many veggies in when I’m eating out – anyone else have that problem?! Anyway…

German Slow Cooker Pork and Beer Hotpot

I was trawling the internet to find a pork stew recipe that wasn’t goulash, which we had last week, or made with cider, which I hadn’t got in the house. I was largely unsuccessful. I found a few ideas for ‘German’ stew that used stout though. I think that is the only thing about this…

Simple Family Chocolate Cake

It’s just me and Mr Roast Chicken in this household, but when I say ‘family’ you get the idea, right? I mean a big olde traditional chocolate cake with a proper, light sponge and loads of icing, inside and out. Something a 10 year old child would be delighted with. Just like we were. It’s…

Meal Planning Monday 10 October 2016

I’m really getting into my meat at the moment – after months of veggie goodness I’m craving it! I’ve also had more time to devote to cooking, which has been great. Here’s what’s being served up in the Roast Chicken Household this week: Monday Lunch – Lentil and Tomato Soup Monday Dinner – Pollo alla…
