Chilli with a cheat

Beef, Spicy

I love a good chilli and it can’t be beaten when you have some lovely big nachos to scoop with! 

I’ve recently started making a cheats version of home made nachos, simply cut up some tortilla wraps, drizzle in oil (I use chilli oil) and bake for 5minutes on 180 fan. (Be careful as they can quickly burn)

 
They are totally tasty with a great crunchy texture.

Cheaters never prosper

Food

Last night we made it home from London and knowing I would be zonked I decided to do a very rare thing for my household….. I ordered ready made food! 😱

This tapas selection came from Tesco and despite it offering a tasty and varied sounding selection, it was wholly disappointing. Everything tasted pretty much the same and has this underlying synthetic taste.

The best part was the ciabatta which I personally toasted and drizzled with truffle oil and fig balsamic.

Lesson learnt, cheaters never prosper.


*Dont be fooled by its alluring look! 

Some days I cheat….

Fish

Although I love to be in the kitchen, sometimes time doesn’t always pan out and today was one of those days.

So, to boots I went and a meal deal I got!

I love this little sushi salad, it’s a regular go to and although it looks small it’s decieving and filling!

The juice….it takes some getting used to. 

  
The boots meal deals are really very good value and tasty.

It’s delicious to cheat!

Duck, Uncategorized

Although I am a massive fan for preparing and cooking a meal from start to end, sometimes I do treat myself to a night out of the kitchen

Recently I started to add all of the ingredients to my basket (online) for a duck parfait. Despite my salavating desire for this dish my enthusiasm on the making of it drooped. And so, I cheated and bought a store made version.

Flipping delicious it was and with no prep work…. Instant! 

  

A rare night of not cooking..

Last night I rang Gav…. I said “can’t be bothered to cook, go get some wine, pick up some food too” (with maybe a few pleasantries slotted in also)

He came home with wine (2 bottles) and a pizza and garlic bread combo from the Co op. Normally I’m not a fan of ready made pizza but the Kashmiri pizza from the co op is my guilty pleasure. Nom! Only problem was, I had to share!!
