So I am four weeks into my new health plan. And it has given my mum the inspiration to try cooking new meals. The first one we tried was chicken and potato curry with lots of spices. We usually have a curry with just curry powder in, chicken and rice and a few raisins. This one has lots of different spices, potatoes and onion and garlic. It would be hotter if we had put all the ingredients in which included ginger and chillies, but I can't take too much heat in food. Anyway, we tried it and we loved it. So much so that we have had it again a couple more times. Be warned, the smell of the spices linger indoors for 2-3 days afterwards we found.
The other new dinner we tried was jacket potato and baked beans. I had this once at work and really liked it. We both really like it now. We had it for dinner yesterday. We find it is a quick and easy meal to do (10 mins to do) and is a stop gap for when we can't think of something to put on the menu or want something quick to eat if we have been out for the day or have visitors.
So, two new meals that we both love and will eat again soon.
Next week I will be taking a break from talking about weight loss and foods, and talking about decluttering your house.
