Slow cooker chicken tikka masala

We are pretty big fans of slow cooker chicken recipes in this house! Also, I love making fakeaways. This is a great way to enjoy those takeaway classics you love with fewer calories, for less money and without having to wait for a stranger to knock on the door! This slow cooker chicken tikka masala is something that has been requested several times now, over on my Instagram and so I thought I’d best get it written up!

The Meal Planning Linky Week #129 Meal Plan

Good morning & happy Friday! Another week has zoomed by in our house. A week of house jobs, cleaning, work and not much else, but it has felt good anyway! I’m feeling super grateful to have childcare for 20 hours a week or so at the moment, to allow me to start getting on with some of my ‘one day’ work jobs that I have been meaning to get around to doing for absolutely months.

This week I’m going to get a Hello Fresh box in, well, on Monday, with 5 dinners in. This means that I don’t really have much planning to do this week, and instead I can just focus that time on working hard and achieving lots around my home.

I love the convenience of Hello Fresh and am definitely going to write about it soon. I do feel like the meal choices have become a little samey for me, but I’m looking forward to our meal after a week off!

Meal planning helps us to have low food waste which is really important to me. I feel really sad if we have to throw something in the bin, thinking of both the environmental impact and the fact that other people struggle to afford food.

I am always trying to take steps to make sure we are avoiding overspending on groceries.

Air fryer chicken wings – crispy and delicious!

I love the convenience of the air fryer. In just a few minutes I can cook myself a hot lunch, tasty snack or even make a full dinner! My air fryer has to be one of my favourite kitchen gadgets now. I’m becoming more and more experimental with what I’m making and love the time that my air fryer saves me. I don’t want to always have the oven on, heating up my whole house! We love chicken wings in our house so the rub for these air fryer chicken wings has been a long time in the making!

The Meal Planning Linky Week #128 Meal Plan

Hello! Happy Friday. I’m sorry that I missed the meal plan last week. We did still meal plan at home, and stick to it well, I just didn’t have the heart for blogging and sharing life for a few days. I feel back on track now! We’ve got a Hello Fresh box this week, then I think I feel mentally ready to try meal planning and cooking from my own imagination again!

I love the convenience of Hello Fresh and am going to write about it soon. I just feel that some of the meal choices are getting a little samey so I might skip 1-2 weeks then see how I feel about going back to it!

The Meal Planning Linky Week #126 Meal Plan

Hello! Happy Friday. Another week is almost over! Next week Thomas is off work so I’m looking forward to lots of family time. We’re still loving the Hello Fresh boxes, so I have one of those for next week to make meal times easier.

I love the convenience of it, and have been fortunate to get some nice credit from other people signing up for a discount box too!
