Here we have steamed rice, vege stir-fry with carrot, snow peas and baby corn, half a boiled egg and a cup of blueberries. Really hit the spot. Thanks to the Giant for taking the photo today, my phones been acting up lately, might have to save for a new one...
Made this on to see how well I could copy what I had done before, total lack of imagination today, really enjoyed my eggs though. Don't tend to eat boiled eggs just plain like that, I'd rather scoop them out of the shell into the bottom of a mug and mix them up with a smidgen of butter, salt and pepper (makes me feel like I'm four again).
Really glad the girls have started laying again, the eggs from the shop are never as good, even the expensive free r
Rice cooked with spices, a handfull of sweetcorn, a finely diced carrot and some juicy prawns, and a little tub of blueberries for dessert.
A ton of fruit and veg, a massive strawberry, cherries and blueberries, and a wee stir-fry (baby corn snow peas, mushroom and chilli).
Brand new glass, fruit juice and at long last a bit of sun to enjoy being out my back again. Perfect.
To top it all off a really simple but delicious lunch, roasted chicken legs with hot sauce and a ton of strawberries. Made my day.
Can't remember where I picked up this recipe, but it goes great with hot wings.
50ml olive oil
100ml chilli sauce (the ones which are 90 odd percent chilli)
40ml approx lemon juice
Mix ingredients in a bowl until combined, enjoy!
Using up leftovers again, half a small salmon fillet, the end of a pack of smoked salmon, half a sheet of nori and half a boiled egg on top of plain rice, easy does it :)
Above we have a mixed vegetable stir-fry with snow-peas, baby corn, mushrooms and onion. They were fried in a little oil and chilli, garlic and soy sauce were added near the end. The dessert had black and green grapes, kiwi and sliced plums.
This picture was taken in work, and if I had been less hungry I would have mixed the sections a little to show all the ingredients, but hindsight is 20/20, I'll just have to remember for next time.
The photos really make it look like there was a lot less variety than reality, you can just spot a little kiwi in the top, but the stir-fry looks like pure corn and snow-peas.
Picking out a few snacks for myself and The Giant, soy sauce eggs, pickled eggs and chicken breast strips.
The chicken was marinaded in light soy sauce, honey and a little pepper, I then quickly grilled them.
Posting quite late tonight, we were doing a ton of stuff about the house today, then relaxed watching a few shows and eating
Got this little guy on sale from the paperchase in Belfast a while ago, just realised he hasn't been online yet to say hello.
Top tier holds green and red grapes and a few blueberries, in the bottom there's a layer of rice topped with smoked salmon, tonnes of prawns and some broccoli stalk fried with soy sauce.
Normally I use this box when I'm having a snack, as it's a little small for me, but I made this one for my friend who has a much smaller appetite. She wolfed it down.
WLF - Whats Left in the Fridge?
Using my brand new box today. It was my valentines present from The Giant (he knows me so well!) It has a large bottom section with a moveable divider, and a slimmer tier to hold the matching cutlery that came with it. Managed to squeeze a few treats in there too. I think the top middle one looks like a pineberry, I asked The Giant but he didn't even know what I was talking about, what do you think?
Managed to get a few blueberries and a bit of chocolate (also from valentines) into the top tier, in the next level we have baby carrots, dried fruit mix (cherry, cranberry, raisin), two chicken wing pieces (baked not fried), three fresh cherries and a nice big portion of fried rice with prawns, red chilli, baby corn, scallions and an egg from our girls out the back.
Not the healthiest of lunches but, damn was it good. Had to make do with what I could find in the kitchen, we really need to do a shop. Hopefully will get time tonight.
