Day Five – Fishcakes and Salad

Ok I’ll admit, tonight was a challenge!! We went out for our work offsite today which ended in a free bar, and continued on for HOURS. This meant that being in the middle of Brighton with access to all those takeways was almost too much for me to bear! But as luck would have it…

Day Four – home cooked KFC

No I’m not going crazy, I don’t expect you to come home from work and make fried chicken from scratch ( it’s Thursday for gods sake) but I do want you to try real chips, Nigellas way, if you can!! I really have to worship at the feet of the domestic goddess for these as…

Day Three- Pizza Night

Happy hump Day!! You’ve made it through most of the week so it’s time to celebrate!! Either you’ve been out for midweek drinks or you are looking forward to a nice easy meal…so here it is- pizza night!! It took me a long time to wean Dazzler off his favourite food- Pizza Hut!! It’s not…

Easy Peasy Thai green Curry

Tuesdays are our favourite tv night so we want something satisfying but healthy to see us though the night. It’s also one of our busiest days at work so I’m usually tired but this isn’t so much a recipe as a throw together takeaway menu with all the taste and none of the huge cost!!…

Day One- meatballs with pasta sauce

So it’s Monday, you are still recovering from the weekend and you’ve just been at work all day. You’ve fought through your commute and you want something comforting but really can’t be arsed!! You are just about to reach for the phone when you remember It’s your week of NO takeout!! So instead you reach…

seared tuna and carrot ‘pasta’ ribbons

I really miss Pasta sometimes but it always comatoses me when I have it at night, which is when, lets face it, we all want a comforting bowl of pasta!! Whilst this isn’t pasta it’s bloody lovely and really fills a pasta shaped hole when you need it. And what’s more its very carb light…

Steak & chips can be healthy!!!

After a week of what feel like ‘ranty’ posts I’m back on track, although you will have noticed that I’ve been strangely quiet on the battle of the bulge front of late! The answer is simple….. I’ve been crap!! As I’ve been in the first couple of months of a new job Ive given myself…

Bean Chili – Its not just for Veggies!!

I’m feeling the need of something comforting yet healthy this week as work has been all out. So I thought this weekend I would dedicate to making something I haven’t made for a couple of years but I used to LOVE – My Bean Goo – or bean chili to the uninitiated!! It’s a pretty…

Luscious Lamb Shanks

As has become a regular occurrence we are both a little worse for wear today after a fab night out in Brighton. It’s become such a regularity that I had the foresight to take some lamb shanks out of the freezer yesterday. I picked these up from the meat counter at sainsburies on special last…

My Flabulous Cottage Pie

Short and sweet this week as, yes you guessed it, we are both hungover after a Flabulous Saturday night out. I’m sure you’ve all by now seen a pattern which means comfort food and today that means cottage pie!! I knew last night would be a big one so I got prepared and made this…
