Soup Sunday: Vegetable, risoni & bacon soup

My favourite way to get workday lunches sorted for the week ahead is to cook a big pot of soup over the weekend (usually on Sunday, hence ‘Soup Sunday’ being a regular post around here) and freeze the extra serves in individual containers. If you find yourself falling into the buying lunch out everyday trap, […]

It’s time for another week of Menu Plan Monday! I didn’t deviate from my plan at all last week and managed to cook everything, so that is great. It is so good knowing that dinner is all planned out. Before I tell you my menu plan for this week I am going to share a […]

Eggplant & Mozzarella Rolls (& Menu Plan Monday)

Well, I managed to stick to my menu plan for most of the week last week and it really helped me to actually eat something worthwhile rather than not knowing what to cook and ending up eating rubbish, so this week I am doing a plan again. But first I’m going to share one of […]
