J’adore this recipe – Mother’s Day Surprise

Unfortunately for my Mummy, this Mothering Sunday she will be working.

She’s already a nurse but is training to be a midwife at the moment so the gruesome facts about motherhood just keep on coming. But this also means she will be working a late and hopefully seeing some babies born this Sunday.

What a lovely Mother’s Day gift!

I thought that, as well as breakfast in bed, I would take the opportunity while she’s having a lie in to make her this soup.

If there is two things my mummy loves it’s sweet potato and goat’s cheese.

And chocolate, there will definitely be chocolate.

Jamie’s 30 Minute Meals

 

I absolutely love this series! Jamie Oliver cooks really fantastic but simple food, but they’ve removed lots of the recipes of the website and now I’m going to have to go out and actually buy the book!

There was one recipe which I was going to share with you today that I had saved and was desperate to try.

It was a different take on chicken skewers. Obviously I’m a vegetarian, but only me and my mum are in my family so I thought I would cook chicken for everyone else and king prawns for us. (This is what we usually do and everyone decides they would much rather eat king prawns.)

My favourite thing about his 30 minute meals are the salads and sides.

And aha! I’m a genius here is the full recipe http://www.channel4.com/4food/recipes/chefs/jamie-oliver/chicken-skewers-and-fruit-and-mint-sugar-meal including noodle salad and desert!
