Corona Chronicles – Day 7

Today started differently for sure. I woke with the desire to bake! A couple of days back Mum and I had been discussing scones, and she said that she had worked out a new recipe for chilli cheese scones. We have a bit of an addition to the chilli cheese flavour combo. If she thought…

Corona Chronicles – Day 3

This morning started with a great breakfast. I had leftover sausages from the night before so reheated them and made a kind of omelette thing. I say “omelette thing” because I can’t make good omelette. That and rice. Super simple but I never quite get it right. I don’t know why. I have given up…

Corona Chronicles – Day 1

Last night, an alert was sent out. Dubai is to be in 24hr lock down for a minimum of 2 weeks. I would like to state here that I fully respect the decision made by the government of my Emirate and that of the country which I live. I believe they are doing what is…

More food, Piggies!

When I was a child, my Mummy had surgery a bit too close to Christmas for my Dad’s liking.  In order to play the supportive husband card and get as many brownie points as possible, he booked to take the four of us plus my maternal Grandmother and Grandfather out to dinner on Christmas Day. …

My GM Diet/Detox Experiment

As anyone who knows me or has seen my photo knows,  I carry a few extra lbs on my frame.  Or rather a lot.  Depending on which photo you have seen!  Currently however, my weight has rocketed and I don’t like it at all.  I am uncomfortable and unhappy and so I decided I needed…

“Souq al Bahar 4 Fish”

I woke at 5am in a real huff.  I have no clue why.  Perhaps I had been having an enraging dream or something?  It’s highly possible as I am a compulsive dreamer.  Whatever the reason was though, there was no going back to sleep.  I went through Facebook, and Instagram, and caught up on my…

Cajun Turkey Pasta

Quite some time ago, I found a delicious recipe for Cajun chicken pasta that was Slimming World friendly. I made it and it was as tasty as it sounded. When thinking about what to cook for dinner last night this popped into my head. Do you think I could find that recipe anywhere? Nope. Not…

Walden Farms vs Choc Shot

This is a very short post because there is no debate in my mind…. Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup kicks Sweet Freedom’s Choc Shot ass.  It isn’t as watery and it has a better and less synthetic chocolate taste. I can’t compare any other flavours because this is the

Chilly Enough For Chili

Yeah… I am lame, but that made me snigger! Dubai has recently been gong through a bit of a winter period.  Thankfully it is only about 1 month of the year, but this year seemed extra long and worse than normal.  I don’t know if that is because I’ve been here longer or because it…

Vegetable Egg Bake

When The Boy and I first started dating, I decided that I would make a roasted vegetable egg bake.  We had Roast Beef for dinner the night before and there was a bunch of veggies left over.  This is one of my favourite things to do with leftover roasted veggies.  It turns out it was…
