Week 4 of the 6 week reboot is officially done and dusted and this week was no alcohol and miracle mornings. You can read about what I’ve been up to in previous reboot weeks in the follow links:
Having recently discovered the world of slow cooker meals, I am now completely hooked and so wanted to share this rich and aromatic, slow cooker tagine, made with turkey, squash and prunes.
Finally I’ve got around to posting my slow cooker Ragu recipe. I love a rich, tomatoey, Italian style Ragu, served with tagliatelle, fresh basil and a good helping of parmesan – you just can’t beat it!
Its official; I LOVE my slow cooker and slow cooker meals!
Its week 2 of my 6 week reboot, and this week my challenge was to 1) buy a slow cooker, and 2) use it for a whole week. The idea being that I would be super prepared and that tea would be ready and waiting each night.
Week one of my six week reboot has officially been completed! The good news is that I’m still functioning and appear to be unscathed. My challenge for the last week was to get to grips with the Bullet Journal and to start using it on a regular basis. The idea was to try and bring some kind of order and calm to my busy life.
I’ve always wanted an allotment. When Debbie and I moved into our first house together, we had a dabble at some herbs and a couple of bucket potatoes. The following year we bought a tiny greenhouse for some tomatoes. I quickly realised my ‘growing’ ambitions, forgive the pun, would need more room.
This post goes a little off topic from my usual recipe content, but I feel it’s time to get more ‘with it’ in terms of my work-life-blog balance. So for the next 6 weeks I’m going to start a new mini blog series, which will follow my 6-week reboot journey of attempting to get back on track with living well and being more organised. I will be doing this with my friend Katya from Katyas cake hole, who will also be following her own 6 week reboot plan.
Pancake Day is nearly here and I can’t tell you how highly delighted I am about that fact. I’ve always got way too excited about Pancake Day; we don’t even get a holiday out of it. But I just can’t help get over-the-top, giddy about the mixing together of some eggs, flour and milk. Put on a bit of pancake-making-music from Matilda (AKA ‘Send me on my way’ by Rusted Root) and you’ll have me leaping around the kitchen, spatula in one hand, pan in the other; and with a wiggle of the hips, the scene is set for a full blown, larger-than-life, happy celebration of the good old pancake.
