Chilli Seafood Mix

This is Reegan's first ever post and I am very proud.

He likes a bit of spice and made this to go on top of +Gareth King's paella. 

Unfortunately, I deleted all his pics when I swapped my phone over (sorry bud!) I am sure you will agree this is a great recipe  and makes a great post without pictures. 

Reegan made his dish by adding spices, herbs and tabasco sauce as he went along. There is no hard and fast rules or measurements - it is made to taste!

HALF TERM BAKING! - By Courtney :)

As its half term we have been doing a lot of baking! Come on, who can't resist the results of home made cakes, tarts e.t.c.? Not us, we've been busy baking Jam tarts, milk chocolate crispy cakes, chocolate chip cupcakes, white chocolate & marshmallow crispy cakes and a delicious chocolate chip sponge cake! A lot of chocolate there but who doesn't like chocolate? 

We know that cakes and chocolate aren't that healthy but you have to have some fun in your diet!

Mahoosive Shepherds Pie

If you want to feed a large group of people then shepherds pie is the way to go.....
It is easy to cook, delicious, cheap and full of healthy vegetables. 
Plus, you can always add your own twist with extra herbs, veg and spices. 

Last week we had a family feast. There was 9 of us in total. Our menu was shepherds pie, kiddie friendly cabbage and brussel sprouts cooked with bacon.

Normally I would....Heat a little oil, fry onions, brown the mince, add some veg and water, leave it to simmer, then add gravy granules to thicken, spoon on mash, grate a little cheese on top and plonk in the oven for 20 mins- easy quick and tasty. 

Valentines cupcakes - By Courtney :)

There was a valentines day cake sale on Friday 14th February at my school. I decided to take part and make some yummy cupcakes.
I used a plain vanilla sponge for the cupcakes, vanilla buttercream and then made some white fondant flowers using a tool I got from my favorite magazine - Something Sweet Collection!

Chicken Paprika Stew

Chicken Stew was first on our list of 'Norfolk Veg Box' dishes. 

The beauty of stew is that you can add as much veg as you like - making an ultra healthy meal and a brilliant winter warmer!

Before now I haven't ever made a Chicken Stew, it has almost always been a beef stews. 
I did a little research, well Googerling (I wonder if Googerling will be added to the English dictionary soon) and then I created my own.

WHOOP! What a week...

We are definitely back on the right on track. 

What an awesome week we have had.....
First off I have lost 4lbs this week, this I am very please with. I have really watched what I have eaten and kept it healthy. I returned to the gym and rekindled my love of running. (I even managed a 5 miler yesterday.) 

All in all I'm extremely pleased.
