Weeks are flying by!! Cant believe its June next week!
Anyway, I whipped up some fried rice the other day! Made 4 portions and froze 3 of them. Yes you CAN freeze stir fried rice😆
I’ve used microwave rice and also a bag och pre chopped stir fry veggies for this as it saves so much time! Plus the bag of veg was reduced 😉
2 bags microwave rice. I used uncle Ben’s 5 whole grains.
600g chopped veg. What ever you like or just buy pre chopped. I got a bag from sainsbury’s.
2 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp sweet chilli
2 garlic cloves
Salt and pepper to taste
Extra chili flakes if you want it extra hot
Simply fry the veg in oil until softened. Using a garlic crusher add the garlic and add soy sauce, sweet chilli, salt, pepper and some chili flakes. Fry a bit longer then add the rice (no need to microwave the rice as it will cook in the wok), fry for a few minutes. Done! Super easy and really yummy!
Can not believe that that on Sunday we’ll be locking up this place for the last time! Unless we decide to move back in a few years of course😉 I still feel like sh*t, definitely got the flu. Fever is finally gone but got a bad cough, aches and the energy level are nonexistent..
I am so excited to move to Bournemouth and be living by the sea side. I’m so happy that Winter will be growing up in a beautiful place with nature on the doorstep! I don’t mean to hate on London, we have had some great times here but it’s not the place I want to raise my child.
Anyhow, trying to use up the last bits in the freezer and had these 2 yummy meals this week. They’ve been sitting in the freezer for a while! Cant wait to be settled in to our new flat, do a massive food shop and start cooking again.
Recipe for my Harissa Chickpeas, carrot and kidney beans here!
I have had a fever for 2 days now! So very frustrating especially as we got so much to do before the move!! I have managed to go through all my clothes already which is great. Ended up with 5 massive bags going to charity and Jack’s gonna start bringing stuff down to Bournemouth tomorrow! The new tenants are moving in on the 15th! Cant believe that we won’t be living here anymore by the end of next week! It’s been our home for 4 years. But who knows we might be back😆
Made this big bowl of porridge this morning. Been a while since I’ve had porridge, it’s been mostly semolina or overnight oats lately!
I love a good breakfast! I tend to go for a sweeter breaky rather than savoury, and I’m all about porridge and vegan yogurt at the mo!
I love Alpros new unsweetened soygurt. Super tasty! Chuck in some berries, banana, bran flakes or dried berries. What ever you fancy! Yum!
Oats is a classic! So cheap and versatile! When it’s cold I love having porridge, I usually put in 2 ton of cinnamon Haha and when I want to treat myself I go heavy on the golden syrup!😉 Overnight oats are a current fave! Check out my overnight oats recipe here. Semolina porridge is another huge favourite, so easy to make and I actually prefer to keep it very simple, it doesn’t need a lot of toppings or added flavours. I could eat semolina porridge on it’s own without anything! Click here for my semolina recipe!
And when all else fail a bowl of cereal with almond milk will do! 😍
Happy Wednesday!! This dish is so nice. Creamy coconutty lentils! So easy to make! And budget friendly😄
