Leftover Easter chocolate!

If there is some leftovers after Easter Sunday… I’d be very surprised if I have any… I thought that these would be the perfect solution!

Don’t they just look delectable!?!

Grab those creme eggs that you couldn’t manage and make something yummy for yourself, or if you want to share (you might not, they are sooooo good) make them for family and friends too.

Gooey creme egg & mini egg brownies, absolute heaven 😍

I will leave a link to the basic brownie mix that I used and of course explain my eggcellent πŸ˜‚ (sorry, not sorry) extra naughty but, nice additions.

BBC Good Food ‘Best Ever Brownies’ recipe

 

 

So I made up the Brownie mix that I’ve linked above, and stirred in a pack of mini eggs, with me it’s Cadbury’s all the way people. I then halved creme eggs and pushed them into the batter so they were halfway submerged in the gooey goodness.

 

 

Perfection.

You 100% need to give these a go if you are a lover of chocolate like me, you won’t regret it.

Let me know how you get on!

Until next time,

Cosy Christmas film night! πŸ“Ί:Blogmas day 21

Hi guys!

What’s better on a Saturday night than a cosy movie night!?! especially at Christmas!!
Me & the hubby put on our comfys, got a blanket and I made us some hot choccies whilst Tim scrolled through Netflix.

He settled on ‘Deck the hall’s’ starring Danny Devito.

With hot choccies in hand and sweet & salty Popcorn packets we snuggled down to watch the film.

I actually really enjoyed the film, it was one I had heard of many a time but had never watched. It’s super festive and I love all the Christmas, lights and snowy scenes, perfect for making you feel christmassy.

A great Christmas evening in.

 

Until next time,

Mini Slimming World food Haul πŸ΄

I’ve grabbed quite a few different and new Slimming World friendly products this recently during our weekly food shops so I thought I would fill you guys in. 

Let’s start with savory…

Butternut squaffles

These are so tasty and a great alternative to high syn waffles and chips. Butternut squash is an S too which is great and it means a less carb loaded meal which is nice to have sometimes. 

Skin on Sweet potatoe chips 

Sweet potatoes are quite hard to cut up and I was feeling a bit lazy haha. These are super tasty and a yummy alternative to normal potatoe chips.

Courgette lasagne sheets 

Again these were a nice alternative to pasta lasagne sheets and are an S which is even better. These can just be layered inbetween the usual mince and cheese sauces without any need to be pre cooked! Much quicker, less faffing about.

Heck chicken sausages

These sausages are so yummy and only 0.5 syn for 2. I know it may seem wierd as they are chicken but they make a nice alternative to pork sausages and have a really nice flavour. The Italia ones with mozzarella & tomato are my favourites.

Porky lights sausages 

These are so tasty and only 0.5 syn each which is awesome for pork sausages. These are so good! Their only downfall is the price so I try to grab them when they are on offer.

Hula hoop pufts, ready salted

These crisps are really nice and great as a snack. They are 3 syns a bag which is really low for crisps.

And sweet…

Muller light Yoghurt 

Completely free and so yummy. An excellent dessert, snack or addition to a packed lunch.

Fibre one squares 

These fibre one treats are only 4 syns each, and trust me they are worth it! The chocolate brownies in particular are as good (if not better) than many cafe brownies. They also come in Lemon drizzle and salted caramel flavour. 

Chocolate coated rice cake bars 

These are a great chocolate fix and I love having these as a snack at work. These are 4.5 syns per bar. I also have these in chocolate orange flavour which is my favourite.
And of course…lots of fresh fruit and veg! This is probably the bulk of our weekly shop but so worth it and super good for you. We always have apples, Pears, strawberries & raspberries (when available) and lots of salad veg such as toms, peppers, cucumber etc as these are my favourites to eat.

I’m going to do a post soon with some yummy Slimming World recipes so if you liked this post keep your eyes peeled for that πŸ‘

Until next time,

What I eat in a day πŸ΄πŸ€—

As you may or may not know from my blog, I follow the Slimming World plan. 

Disclaimer: This isn’t a plug for Slimming World! I just want to show you what I can eat in a day on this plan, how yummy some of the food is & some of the food & snacks I enjoy the most πŸ‘

Let’s start with my favourite meal, breakfast

A standard breakfast for me is something along the lines of Weetabix or porridge topped with banana or berries. On the weekends I love having a cooked brekky but during the week this hits the spot πŸ‘Œ

This is usually accompanied with a coffee or tea β˜•

Snacks

Now working in a school means that we have a break time mid morning. I am usually quite hungry by then and there are a few things I like to have for Snack… I obviously don’t have these all on the same day, these are just some of my faves.

Crisps: Aldi Sour cream & chive pitta crisps 5.5 syns 

Aldi honey and granola bites 1 syn each

Mallow & Marsh bar, raspberry marshmallow covered in dark chocolate 7 syns 

Lots of fruit πŸŠπŸŒπŸŽπŸπŸπŸ“

Lunch

Here’s a typical lunch for me, I obviously mix it up as I’m not one of these people who can have the same lunch, day in, day out.

This yummy salad bowl consisted of salad leaves, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, red cabbage & beetroot served with chicken slices, ham & cottage cheese.

I will usually have a mugshot alongside a salad as well as some more fruit & a Yoghurt too.

Dinner 

This was one of the yummiest Slimming World meals I have made so far, Crispy chicken with loaded potatoes skins & homemade coleslaw πŸ˜‹

The Crispy coating is made from dipping the chicken in beaten egg & then coating it in seasoned Smash powder. I filled the potatoes skins with a mix of the potatoes, spring onion, ham, cheese, salt & pepper. Tasty!

I made the coleslaw using a combination of shredded Carrot, onion & red cabbage mixed with light mayo. 

I hope you enjoyed this post! If you would like any of the recipes in full let me know πŸ‘

What’s in my bag? πŸŽ’

I love watching ‘whats in my bag?’ videos on yotube so I thought I would do one for my blog. 

So, what’s in my bag? 

Let’s start with the all important bag! This little black bag is from Primark and was only  Β£9. I love the faux leather material & suede material on the front. The gold detailing & clasp are really cute too.

I love that it has both long & short straps too and although it looks small it fits a lot in it.

Let’s take a look inside…

I always carry my purse & a hairbrush where ever I go. I love this purse, sage green is one of my favourite colours  (one of our wedding colours too, ahhh β™‘) & the patterned birds are really cute. It’s nice and big so fits lots in it too! 

I got this lovely big Brush from Primark for Β£1.50, bargin!

I also always have a book with me & if you’ve seen my August favourites you’ll know I’m currently reading this Nicholas Sparks book πŸ‘ 

I love this body mist from Zoella original beauty range. Blissful Mistful β˜† it smells gorgeous.

Sunglasses 😎 The weather hasn’t been too bad this summer so I’ve carried these in my bag ready. I love having decent prescription sunglasses, I always hated not being able to have nice ones or just not being able to see!

I would defiantly recommend this Revolution Lip amplification lip gloss as it has such good staying power. I’ve eaten and drank and it’s still in place with a good colour. 

I love this shade ‘Joy’ it’s a lovely plum autumnal colour. πŸ‚πŸ

And finally…

I popped one of these fruity bars, from Aldi in my bag incase I got peckish around town. This is blueberry and seeds flavour. It comes from their ‘Foodie market’ range and they do lots of other yummy fruit flavours to satisfy your sweet tooth. 

I hope you enjoyed this blog post, let me know if you did! What do you always carry in your bag? 

Until next time,
