Wise Words

I'm ALWAYS seeing pins on Pinterest with motivational or inspirational quotes.  I tend to glance over them and then move on to the next pin about cats or food or sparkly things because it takes a pretty good quote to catch my eye but I also have a few quotes that mean a lot to me so don't need to get cluttered up in the sayings and exerpts deparment.

So I thought I'd share my favourites with you - no fancy font or presentation, just the words in situ on my fridge, wall, etc…

Mix & Match Sushi Bowl

Mix & match sushi bowl - how to make fresh and healthy deconstructed sushi full of vegetables, proteins and flavour!  It tastes just like your favourite sushi without the hassle of rolling!

There are times when I want all the fresh, healthy things that you get with sushi but can't be faffed with all the prep and rolling and trying to make it all stay in tight little rolls so they don't fall apart in the space between plate and mouth…I know you're with me on this one…

So here's the solution - fill a bowl with sushi rice and then top it with all the scrummy things you would normally find inside your favourite sushi roll!

Baked Smoked Haddock Fish Fingers

Home made baked fish fingers - using smoked haddock adds a more grown up taste to these fish sticks that kids (and big kids!) will both love and baking them is far healthier than frying!

If you spent any part of your childhood in England then it's likely you will remember having fish fingers for dinner.  I preferred mine to be served with Alphabites (potato-y letters) and perhaps a blob of ketchup.

Fast forward 25 years…fish fingers are still one of my favourite comfort foods but have made things a little more classy by introducing potato smiles and steamed broccoli…

Normally I buy the bog-standard orange breadcrumb coated fish sticks but fancied something a little more grown up.  I wanted a big chunk of cod so I could make some fairly hefty fish fingers but while perusing the fish aisle in the supermarket I spotted some smoked haddock.  Bingo!  Using plain breadcrumbs with this fish makes them a little more grown up than the normal store-bought fish fingers but know they'd be a hit with the little people as well!

Photo a Day 2015 - March

March is a funny month…not quite winter, not quite spring.  Here in Berkhamsted we've had some lovely mild and sunny days, we've also had sudden epic downpours and high winds.  The daffodils have ignored the bad weather and have started popping up all over the place so after months of dullness it's nice to see splashes of colour coming through!

March is a good month for you if, like me, you're a fan of greens - kale, cabbage and spinach are all "springing" to our plates!  If you want something a little sweeter, the supermarket shelves are well stocked with hot cross buns ready to be toasted and smothered in butter…
