Meatballs just got a little more grown up! And healthier!
(An easy way to sneak greens into your family’s meals!)
(Or 3 if you’re really hungry!!
For the meatballs:
First wilt 100g spinach in a pan. Then allow to cool, squeeze out the liquid, roughly chop and set aside.
Then mince 450g chicken (ideally thighs) and two garlic cloves in a food processor. (Don’t be afraid of the raw garlic! :))
Then season the chicken mix with 1/4 tsp of salt and pepper, 1 tsp oregano and stir in the spinach.
Line a baking dish with greaseproof paper and spray with frylight. Roll chicken into 16 meatballs and place in the dish.
Bake at 200 degrees for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile prepare the sauce:
Sauté one finely chopped onion and one garlic clove.
After the chicken has cooked for 30 minutes remove from the oven. Removing the greaseproof paper!!!
Toss the meatballs with the sautéed onions, 2 tins of chopped tomatoes, 1/4 tsp of salt and pepper, 1 tsp of oregano and 1 tsp of sweetener (or honey if you don’t like sweetener – but don’t forget to count the syns).
Cover, and bake for a further 30 minutes.
There’s a hot new trend…It seems…much to my amazement…For handbags that look like food…yes…really!
With only two months to go till my much anticipated Disneyland Paris minibreak. .. my mind is firmly focused on planning.
I am back in the swing of things with Slimming World and on my way to shedding a couple of stone before the trip. With hotel and transport booked, next up to plan is of course activities and restaurants. … because well food IS my life after all.
Then comes the more practical side of things like clothes and my realisation that I need to decide between a backpack and a crossbody bag…yes this really is a big decision to make at the moment.
And while food IS my life… I have to share with you these bags I found when looking for a new bag online. I can’t decide whether they are so cool I need one… or whether they are yet another weird trend of something that I will be fed up of after 3 months.
And the third one I came across… which is probably the one that baffles me the most, is the high end contribution from Browns: a £335 popcorn container shaped bag. I just don’t understand why someone would spend this sort of money on this sort of bag! Unless you were maybe Miles Cirus or someone.
And there are plenty more of these bags at the moment!!! These are just the ones that caught my eye.
Well my search for the perfect weekend handbag continues. ..and for now it won’t include anything of the edible looking variety!
