The Meal Planning Linky Week #16 Meal Plan

Meal planning keeps us on track as a family. It saves us money, keeps us away from the takeaway and helps us eat healthier meals too. Today I’m sharing the Meal Planning Linky Week #16. This linky is hosted by myself, Katykicker, and Naomi from The Organised Life Project. We LOVE meal planning and want to invite you to join us in sharing your meal plan and keeping yourself motivated.

Enjoying lunch with Arla’s Fibre yogurt

Recently I was invited to London to #GetFussed and enjoy a 3-course lunch with lots of wonderful food bloggers. The purpose of the lunch was to help us all learn more about the new Arla fibre yogurt and also pick up some handy tips for improving our daily fibre intake.

As you can see the venue, and the table settings, were beautiful. I was really excited for the lunch and to learn more about Arla fibre yogurt at this time.

7 great uses for your food processor

I love spending time in my kitchen trying out new recipes, batch cooking and trying to save my family money. For me cooking is relaxing, and a great way to look after our family budget. We like to spend no more than £200 a month on grocery shopping and on occasion we have even lived on £100 for a month – as we like a challenge! I’ve recently been sent a new food processor and I want to share with you 7 great uses for your food processor.

Ultimate onion gravy recipe

When the nights are still cold I really enjoy eating comfort food. Cooking a nice meal for my family is my way to de-stress after a long day as a parent. Sometimes I enjoy a face mask or a little self-care as a parent while I cook. Today I’m bringing you my ultimate onion gravy recipe! It takes minimal prep and it tastes delicious too!

Homemade onion gravy recipe

 

Ingredients for my ultimate onion gravy recipe

15g butter

1 large onion, sliced how you like it

1 tsp of sugar

15g of plain flour

350ml beef stock (fresh or from a stock cube is fine)

Worcestershire sauce.

Method for my ultimate onion gravy recipe

Melt the butter in a saucepan or frying pan then add the onions in.

Cook for 1-2 minutes then sprinkle with the sugar.

Stir regularly while cooking on a medium heat for 10-15 minutes. You’ll know when the time is up as the onions will be soft and they will have caramelised thanks to the butter and sugar.

Sprinkle the flour over the onions. Give it a stir to ensure that all the onions are coated. Cook for a further 1-2 minutes.

Pour in your stock if using fresh. If you’re using a stock cube then save yourself some effort by crumbling the stock cube in and then measuring in the required water.

Bring the onion gravy to the boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and allow the onion gravy to thicken up. Add a splash of Worcestershire sauce. If it needs a little more seasoning then add a grind of fresh black pepper.

That’s it! My ultimate onion gravy recipe! Hope you’ve enjoyed it!
