Favourite foods / November

Tuesday, December 02, 2014

Another month has passed and I thought I would share my favourite foods for November.

Tristan got an amazing Chicken Curry recipe from his boss at work. It didn't take a long time to prepare (about half an hour) so it is perfect if you want to make something quick for dinner. The curry still requires a bit of effort to make and the result looks amazingly tasty and quite fancy.


More food from Tristan - a Turkey Burger. I think turkey mince is such a great ingredient - it is lean, easy to cook and versatile!

The third dinner is also prepared by Tristan; it seems like I have not done much cooking this month! These ham and cheese toasties are one of my favourites. I always feel like it's a special day when he is making them (he once made toasties for my birthday)! It is basically just ham, cheese and mustard with some butter on the outside to make them nice and golden. Of course you can 'design' your own - Tristan usually makes them with tomato for me but sadly we were out of tomatoes.

My cooking is more like an experiment at the moment - I call these crab stick, zucchini and cucumber muffins. I used half a cup of coconut and half a cup of almond flour, 3 tablespoons of coconut oil, two eggs, 1/3 cup of milk + vegetables. Mixed all ingredients together and cooked for about 20 minutes. It does taste a bit different at first - I am not used to coconut and almond flour. The muffins have so much flavour but at the same time the texture is quite crumbly and they don't hold together very well.

I had my muffins with tomato soup (a bit of grated cheese on top) for dinner and I think they were a good match!

The rich onion gravy recipe is from The Hairy Dieters: Eat For Life. I purchased it about a year ago and I have just started using it properly. I love it! In future this dinner will only happen without the sausages though.

At the beginning of the month, Tristan made me a white and dark chocolate sponge cake. He found a basic recipe online and made some changes of his own. Tristan and I are big fans of chocolate - I am a fan of dark chocolate and he likes white chocolate, so this cake perfectly suits us both!

This light chocolate mousse dessert is also from the The Hairy Dieters. It is super easy and quick to make - I use 100g plain dark chocolate (70% cocoa), 300g low-fat ready-made custard and 3 large egg whites. I get 4 glasses of mousse from this recipe. It's about 150 calories per portion which I think makes it an amazing little dessert you can eat without feeling guilty!

My one of the biggest 'cheats' this month  - a cup of Smarties and Freckles. I just had to add the picture, it is so colourful and tempting!


Tristan and I finally finished our Australian sweets. We bought over so many packets of biscuits, candies and chocolate but it took us less than a month to finish them all! Everything tastes different in Australia and chocolate is definitely better than it is in the UK. I fell in love with these Red Velvet TimTams.
