Salad Days

I can’t quite believe it’s November 8th and I’m still making salad sides ….. normally by this time of the year we are well into our hearty stews, curries and comfort food which helps us get through winter. Tonight we are having steak and Jacket Potatoes so I’m also serving up this simple side of…

Cabbage

Sometimes we overlook a basic ingredient. We try to jazz it up too much, add herbs, spices, braise it in wine, just mess around with it so much it looses its real quality. For me cabbage is one of those vegetables that I feel we often loose our way with. Too often cabbage brings back…

Sausages….. Square Ones!

As some of you know I am a real foodie. I love food. Nearly all food, sadly I can no longer eat shell fish but everything else can be chopped, cooked, made with love and I’ll eat it! With that in mind and a total lack of self control I find myself back on the…

Easy Chicken Soup

I love a good soup! Be it a decent tinned soup that we turn to for comfort or a posh carton soup for decadence, soup is a real go to comfort food. Before my SlimmingWorld journey I would often just reach for a tin of tomato soup and consume it with a huge cheese toastie….

1 Fish, 2 Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

Well, not quite as exotic as Dr Suess suggests, but we did have a rather healthy, Mudder Kitchen Floor  inspired Yellow Fish this weekend.  A nice piece of smoked haddock.  I think that haddock is one of the nicest tasting fish you can get, whether it is smoked or un-smoked, to me it has a…

Introducing the Muddier Kitchen Floor ZINGER

Continuing my quest be be healthier, I realised that I often miss breakfast, or rather, breakfast consists of a black coffee or black tea. Not very healthy I know!! So I dug out the old juicer which has been collecting dust in the back of the pantry. I’m not one for total juicing diets, but…
