Pineapple custard

desserts, Fruit

Happy Wednesday foodie friends!!

If you need a little boost to get over this midweek hump, why not try this little tiddler of a dessert?

OK, it’s ridiculously simple and you would be forgiven for thinking…..boring, but give it a chance and I promise it will deliver!

All you need to do is:

  1. Place a couple of ladies fingers (sponge fingers) in the bottom of a glass.
  2. Layer on some pineapple pieces (tinned are fine) and even pour in a bit of the juice.
  3. Later with custard (homemade, tinned, low fat, full fat…its up to you!)
  4. Refrigerate until you ready to consume!


It offers you a sweet little pudding with different textures and tastes which combined, compliment each other really well. It’s also quite light and makes for s nice little summer treat.

Chicken Satay

Healthy and delicious midweek meals are not difficult when you put your mind to it.

This simple meal was completely satisfying on all levels. Tasty, filling, healthy, cheap and quick!

All you need to do is:

  • Coat the chicken in yoghurt, tikka sauce And lemon juice, then leave to marinate for as much time as you have
  • Chop up a salad of cucumber, tomatoes, green pepper, red onion and drizzle with a little good quality olive oil
  • Grill the marinated chicken for 5 minutes on each side
  • Griddle wraps to accompany the dish
  • Mix a little natural yoghurt with tikka sauce for a nice dip (spice it up with chilli sauce if you fancy!)

Easy!

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.
