Hands up if you ate too much this Bank Holiday? Is it even possible to have a healthy Bank Holiday? I’m not convinced it is; so far every one this year I’ve spent socialising or seeing family, and this one wasn’t much different…
If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll know that I love a wrap. Stuff something tasty inside a flatbread, chow down and enjoy. Bam. Perfect for when I’m in a rush or just plain lazy but not wanting to eat something junky.
I recently learned the term ‘pluviophile’ which describes someone who enjoys the rain and gains peace of mind from it. Like a number of people I can absolutely relate to that: do you get that feeling of instant comfort when you look out the window and see that it’s pouring outside? I think there’s almost something reliving about it; like it gives you the green light for a few guilt free hours of relaxation – I mean you couldn’t possibly go out and run errands in such dreadful conditions, right?
This recipe is a great alternative to the Sunday roast when you’re in the mood for a more relaxed evening in rather than watching over numerous dishes cooking away. Using cheap cuts of meat cooked low and slow in one pot you’ll get a delicious, hearty meal that saves money and washing up. More time for relaxing!
It’s not just a man’s heart that food can find its way to. No, no, no. The best way to show your mum how much you love her? That’d be with something homemade, sweet and totally delicious. And perhaps washed down with a few glasses or prosecco whilst staring at a beautiful bunch of flowers… but you get the idea: cake first.
