Roast haddock and potato bake

Roast haddock and potato bake

IT’S FRIYAY WHADDUP WORLD!

I’ve been a bit crappy with getting my blog going, mainly due to everything going on in the world of Frost at the minute, but TOMORROW IS MY BIRTHDAY SO I’M AS HAPPY AS A PIG IN POOP!

But anyway, this blog isn’t to talk about everything I’ve got coming up, you’ll see that soon enough. Todays blog is about food, I know, typical me.

So I’ve told you that I’ve started Slimming World, and I want to start documenting some of my recipes. Well, this one knocked my fookin’ socks off and I can’t wait to eat it again.

 

This, is roasted haddock and potato bake. This, is also SYN FREE!

Now I know you’re all super excited on how to make this, and I tell you it’s as easy as taking a piss. So here’s a list of the ingredients you need. Please bare in mind that this is 4 portions!

  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 600g floury potatoes such as Maris Piper, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped (stinky)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 500g ripe tomatoes, you guessed it, finely chopped
  • 4 skinless and boneless haddock fillets
  • 2 tsp finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1.5 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 tsp finely chopped fresh oregano, plus a couple of sprigs to garnish
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
  • finely grated zest and juice from an unwaxed lemon
  • 150ml boiling veggie stock
  • 1tbsp capers, drained

Now I know this looks like a bucket load of stuff, but for the size and amount of portions it’s a budget friendly dish, except capers, them bitches be expensive.

What you gotta do?

  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees, Fan 180 degrees, Gas 6.
  2. Spray a medium-sized ovenproof dish with your spray and add two layers of the potatoes and onions, sprinkle each later with garlic, salt and pepper
  3. Use more spray oil and scatter three quarters of the tomatoes.
  4. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 45 mins to an hour (trust me the wait is worth it!)
  5. Season the fish fillets on both sides and place them on top of the potatoes
  6. Lightly spray the fish with low calorie cooking spray and sprinkle the herbs, remaining tomatoes and lemon zest and juice over the fish and potatoes
  7. Pour in the veggie stock and add capers!
  8. Cook for a further 15 minutes until the fish is just cooked thorough, then garnish with oregano sprigs
  9. Finally, SERVE WITH SOME TOP CLASS VEG!

Now normally the meals I make tend to take less than half an hour, mainly due to impatience and skill, but this one I just had to dry. This is my favourite Slimming World dish to date.

Enjoy!

Wedding woes, what do I wear?

Afternoon everyone, I hope wherever you are is a lot more appealing that what I can see outside of my window. Rain, rain, rain.

But, in a couple of weeks I’m heading to Brighton to a wedding, and I’ve never really been to a wedding before! That’s a lie, I’ve been to a wedding that I was also part of, but not as a guest. So understandably I’ve been a panicking pile of poop.

It’s my boyfriend’s brothers wedding, and although I’ve been with my boyfriend for some time now, I haven’t met a lot of his family. There’s so many reasons for me to panic right now!

I checked out Missguided’s “Missbrided” section, but it’s not very me, it almost seems too dressed up for a wedding, but what do I know!

I hit up ASOS to give me some ideas, and now I have 2!

So I don’t know the vibe of the wedding, as in, do I wear a nice chilled maxi and some sandals or do I go for a fitted dress? Well thanks to ASOS’s recent sale, I didn’t have to choose 😉

Formal wedding, girlfriend of the best man dress:

This beautiful dress from Closet is just my sort of dress, I love a kimono vibe and it’ll help my arms look thinner (WOO!)

It’s delicately wrapped around the waist, singeing in just the right places (hopefully) to make me look a lot more glamorous than I actually am. I adore this print too. It’s so summery and bright, and I’m normally a khaki/navy kinda girl so I’m really excited to try this, at a bargain of £30 too I might just keep it even if it doesn’t make the cut!

Super chill maxi-ng and relaxing (I know, I tried too hard):

dress2

This amazing belted maxi tea dress from Glamorous (in stock in petite) melted my heart, I am in love with the print, and I am desperate to capture a bohemian vibe for Brighton, not sure why, just am! I got this at an absolute bargain of £27.

What’s even better about this dress is that I don’t have to worry about wearing heels, because everyone knows a maxi life is lived in sandals.

Massive props to ASOS for helping a sista out with wedding woes, but I will point out I ordered these before they sent out 10% off sale items for their website being down!

Don’t worry though ASOS, love ya always xo

Guess who’s back, back again!

CRASH BANDICOOT RETURNS!

crash

Did anyone else have heart palpitations when this was announced or was it just me? This is something we gamers have all been waiting for. This is like finding out there’s going to be a Friends reunion! Wait, I think it’s bigger than that.

Crash Bandicoot first graced our screens in 1996. I was a wee 3 year old, watching my parents battle the likes of Papu Papu, Ripper Roo and Koala Kong. I was raised in a gaming household, it was only a matter of time before I too became a Crash Bandicoot fanatic.

We all knew something was coming up, PS4’s Twitter accounts had been leaving subtle messages, and then easter eggs in games became more evident. Did anyone notice the one in  “Uncharted 4” where Nathan Drake and his wife Elena decided to play some Crash Bandicoot?

14th June 2016 was a day dreams came true, and I cannot wait for Crash Bandicoot remastered is finally available to purchase. As far as we know,

Though I must say, nothing will ever beat this…

P.S. I could not give a fart about Skylanders, soz PS4.

My Daniel Wellington beauty 

So I’ve been toying with the idea of a new watch for a while, i’m quite techy so my natural assumption was that the next piece of machinery to live on my wrist (other than my Fitbit) would be a smart watch.

Boy was I wrong…

This absolute beauty from Daniel Wellington first caught my eye in one of Megsays’ YouTube videos, I haven’t showcased it quite as well as she has, but the hands of the watch are a beautiful electric blue which made me fall in love with life all over again. Yes, it’s that serious.

This watch is a mix of the old classic vintage look with the gold framing and tan leather strap with a splash of modern style, and I couldn’t wait any longer to get it!

why is my arm so hairy?

I bagged this beauty for £90, yes £90!! Click here to get yours now!

The price tends to fluctuate, so get in there before it goes up again!
