Claw BBQ Crabshack & Grill, Dubai

I would like to give a shout out to Claw in Souk Al Bahar, which is consistently good.  So few places are anymore. From the food to the team; there is no bad here as far as I can tell. I had a bit of a rubbish day so to cheer me up The Boy took…

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…

Dinner Win!!

I totally had an amazing win for dinner last night!  It was so good that The Boy declared it one of my best kitchen experiments, ever! After coping a mouthful of abuse from a dickhead on Facebook, I was a bit disheartened in my Slimming World cooking efforts.  I felt that I should be making…

Over Night Oat Pancakes – Version 2

Following my previous post about pancakes (here) which I wrote ages ago and forgot all about, I thought I would update you on my new discovery straight away… I couldn’t find where I had written down the ingredients and measurements to make pancakes the same way as before, and was not having my brightest day…

Over Night Oat Pancakes

Bit of a jumbled name there, but you get what I mean. Now, these pictures are not going to be pretty because I manage to eff up the actual cooking every time.  The one time I didn’t, I was so hungry I stuffed them in my face before I could even think “camera”! American Pancakes…

Burger Blow Out!!!

This past weekend saw my Dubai Anniversary.  I landed in this weird adult Disney World 6 years ago.  I don’t think I ever meant to stay so long, and have certainly spent a chunk of that time planning where to escape to next, but this is my home. (I also am far to lazy to…

White Choc & Raspberry Baked Oats

I ran out of week this week.  I had planned on making some more breakfast burritos but with bacon instead of beef.  I am still going to make them at some point, but not today! I knew that I would need something different for breakfast after the same for two days, and 4 days of…

Finding My Happy

On 8th September 1997, I broke my first ever pair of ice skates.  I hadn’t used them in a couple of years and hadn’t stored them with any kind of care and attention because I was an unappreciative asshole as a teenager.  As I was doing a lap of Guildford Spectrum’s ice, the ankle padding…

Dry January – Completed!

One wine-free month has been completed!  Yay for me and The Boy! In this case, unlike quitting smoking, I am totally giving myself WAY more credit than him!  He isn’t a drinker.  He likes an occasional Jack Daniels or Makers Mark, but it doesn’t bother him in the last if he doesn’t have one from…

Setting Goals

Do you have goals?  Not just for weight loss, but for other areas of your life? I don’t.  I am not a planner.  I know that you will find that hard to believe when I am so OCD about planning shopping lists or vacation packing lists, or touristing lists, but I just have missed that…
