Veggie Chilli Nachos

We’re feeling the Mexican love at Casa Roast Chicken and a Country Walk these days. All those beans and veggies are perfect summer food – even though the weather’s not playing ball. This is a bit of a variation on my Black Bean and Bacon Chilli, which is also super yum, but this is a…

Wonderful Wednesday 31 May

I’ve had to dig deep this week. It’s been a hard one. But it’s reminded me that I’ve got so so much to be thankful and that’s been a great comfort to remember. And it hasn’t been without its little joys. Such as: 1. Walking on sheep-nibbled grass. An absolute delight. The right balance of…

Wonderful Wednesday 24 May 2017

View Halloooooooo one and all – how are you? I’m really pretty tired being in the middle of a busy olde work week – but next week I’ll be off to lounge and read and potter about in the sun so mustn’t grumble! Here’s what’s made me smile this week: 1. A perfectly ripe peach,…

Meal Planning Monday 15 May 2017

It’s a while since I did a little meal plan – I’ve been shopping little and often instead, rather than big supermarket shops. But yesterday I stocked up for the week and got back into planning – and this is what I’ve come up with: Monday lunch – Asparagus and Chive Scrambled Eggs on Toast…

Sweet Apricot and Summer Berry Smoothie

Sometimes berry smoothies can be a little tart no? This one has ALL the sweetness from a handful of dried apricots (no need to soak them first – I’ve tested both versions). The dried apricots also add the thickness you need, so this one’s a bananaless smoothie too. Just the thing to slip slowly on…

Wonderful Wednesday 10 May 2017

Hello all, and Happy Wonderful Wednesday to you! Just a quickie today as I’m a) rather late in posting and b) knackered! But I couldn’t not share the lovely things I’ve noticed this week, including: 1. An accidental triumph in the kitchen – BALSAMIC VINEGAR IN THE HUMMUS. You heard it here first. It was…

Veg Box Stew

This is one of those really useful stews where you could chuck in a whole host of leftovers and have something tasty and healthy on the table in half an hour. Some leeks would have been nice, a few pieces of red pepper, a tin of beans to make it more filling – or to…

Prawn, Courgette and Leek Linguine

I’m normally here a-posting a Wonderful Wednesday round up at this time in the week, but I’ve been a busy lady and haven’t had much time to think – or take snaps in the last few days! But I did whizz up some home made pasta. Yes whizz up. In both action and time this…
