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
Apologies for the missing day, I have been sick as a dog. Today we are going to play a bit of catch up though, so i hope you forgive me.
The giants lunch for Friday, two crustless mini quiches (made in my recently rediscovered toaster oven), two chicken legs, and spaghetti bolognaise with parmesan.
Above we have carrot sticks and hummus (roasted red pepper flavour), this is all I managed to eat between Friday and Sunday.
My Monday treat for feeling better, the Giant and me devoured this huge plate of sushi. Planning dinner atm but don't seem to have many ideas, that's what comes of not eating for a few days :(
Rice cooked with spices, a handfull of sweetcorn, a finely diced carrot and some juicy prawns, and a little tub of blueberries for dessert.
Chicken curry and rice (both a gift from a Bangladeshi friend), blanched snow peas, carrot sticks (with hummus hidden under them) and blueberries to finish. Tasty!
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.
