    Kim’s “Cat Soup” (Katsu) Chicken: Let’s Get Cooking!

    Kim’s Cat Soup (Katsu) Chicken earned it’s name after a relative of mine totally misheard what I was making for dinner one night! This particular meal works well for everyone; it includes Amelia’s absolute fave; crunchy chicken. It has a bit of spice for me and Wills (in the sauce), and it’s one of Mr C’s faves too. The sauce is really quite simple to make, and quite often I make it around lunchtime and simply reheat it on the hob when it’s needed. We’ve kept it in the fridge overnight and it has reheated perfectly. Serves 4* Cost Per Person £0.95p Freezable Yes!**Δ

I’ve decided to keep myself motivated with The Weightloss Edit, and hopefully I can help others to stay motivated too.

    Ragtag Risotto: Let’s Get Cooking!

    Ragtag Risotto is so named because you can pretty much throw anything into it that you have to hand! Risotto is an ideal family meal, perfect for first eaters, young children, and grown ups alike. Now that Amelia is a little older, this is one that I like to get her involved with cooking too. Wills often eats a huge portion of this – even his Grandma was flabbergasted when he polished off an entire portion that I had left for him when she babysat recently! You don’t have to stick to the ingredients I have listed, and I often don’t depending on what we have in the fridge and…
