Meals plans have been a bit dull lately, mostly as I need things that were easy to chew, but my dental work is nearing completion and the pain is mostly gone. So this week I wanted to get a few things in that were a bit more interesting than mashed […]

ybc chicken
I do like a big old bucket of fried chicken every now and then, but we do not have a fried chicken shop near enough to get a delivery or to grab a takeaway to eat at home. This is why I came up with Yorkshire baked chicken.  A make […]

Yorkshire baked chicken (YBC)

Nope, I have not gone mad, this weeks meal plans are all about fast food. We will not be living on takeaways, we do not have any fast food shops near by. Certainly nothing from one of the big chains. So this is about recreating some of those takeaway and […]

Fast food meal plan

How is it October already? The weekly meal plan this week was put together a bit on the hoof. I am currently on antibiotics, awaiting a course of dental treatment. So everything needs to be simple as the antibiotics are making me rather vague and forgetful. Quick and simple weekly […]

October – weekly meal plan

Food makes me happy, I love reading about it, cooking and eating. I love feeding people and seeing smiling faces when they enjoy one of my creations. I’ll never be on a diet or eat simply for fuel. I am both a feeder and an eater. I actually feel sorry […]
