Random Food I Have Eaten Recently

Egg noodles, beef strips and vegetables

There have been numerous times recently, in fact there are many weeks, where I either eat food from a generic chain that is not really worth doing a whole post on or my partner happens to have cooked the majority/all of the dish and therefore I cannot provide an accurate recipe.

Aisha’s Chicken Dippers

Purchasing food shopping online can sometimes be a bit risky because, despite what supermarkets claim, there is always that chance of ending up with a bashed up set of bananas or nearly gone off broccoli. It can also allow you to play the game of “will we get all our own food, be missing a […]
