B301 – MONDAY NIGHT FOOD

So yesterday was my first day of work and as a result I did the same thing as everyone else in London. I stopped off at Sainsburys and starred at the oven pizzas thinking that because its Monday I might as well go for it, well that maybe something I would have done in 2017 but its now 2018 and Im determined to cook as much as possible, nothing to crazy each night, not like some weird roast beef with home made horse radish, more like the dish I went for last night which was actually really easy and cheap.

for those of you at Ive talked to about cooking, you probably know that Ive been using the Yummly app, which is basically somewhere I am getting all my recipes from and last night was no exception. The meal I decided to cook was called “Summer In Winter Chicken” I like to call it – Pesto Creamy Chicken. And its actually really straight forward.

the ingredients were:

1 tablespoon olive oil

boneless skinless chicken breasts

200 grams cherry tomatoes (pack)

3 tablespoons pesto

3 tablespoons crème fraîche (half fat is fine)

fresh basil (if you have it)

and then you literally just follow these simple steps and your done:

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan, preferably non-stick. Add the chicken and fry without moving it until it takes on a bit of colour. Turn the chicken and cook on the other side. Continue cooking for 12-15 mins until the chicken is cooked through. Season all over with a little salt and pepper.
  2. Halve the tomatoes and throw them into the pan, stirring them around for a couple of minutes until they start to soften. Reduce the heat and stir in the pesto and crème fraîche until it makes a sauce. Scatter with a few basil leaves if you have them, then serve with rice and salad or mash and broccoli.

I left out the Broccoli, because I forgot and decided that I would have it wish some mash potato, which was just because I had some potatos in the fridge. If you cant be bothered to cook one night, give this dish a try.

Its now Tuesday morning and Im just getting ready for work and about to attack this day, I forgot how hard it is to photograph during the day when your working so maybe Ill just have todo loads more of my favourite food recipes, otherwise we could start to run into some stressful evening chucking fairy lights round Amys check and taking some photos of her.

Heres my photos from yesterday. Enjoy

B093 – ORANGE BUFFALO CHICKEN WINGS

if you’ve ever been to brick lane and not tried the chicken wings you’ve gotta re-think your next trip. theres only one place to get the wings from and thats Orange Buffalo, some people would argue that the original sauce is better than the woof woof, but for me its Woof Woof with a side of blue cheese sauce the whole way! they’re a bit spicy but that just adds to the incredible taste.

If you get there between 12 – 3pm you can get the lunch time deal, chips, wings and blue cheese sauce all of £7.50! and trust me they give you enough food!

our orders

me: woof woof sauces wings, chips, blue cheese sauce and a bottle of water

Amy: Half and Half wings – Woof woof and original sauce wings, chips, blue cheese sauce and a can of coke.

Amy definitely did the right thing and get half and half, I was kind of jealous. but once your three wings deep I didnt really think about that any more.
