What I Ate Wednesday

Wednesday 15 August 2018

I must admit, I can be very lazy with what I eat on an evening. Pre-made meals from M&S are something that I live off. And they’re the balanced ones. But, let’s be real. They ain’t doing me any good. So instead, last week I decided to make my own meals and see how I felt afterwards. Honestly? 10 times better!! I think it’s because I was aware of what ingredients was in every meal, and if I wanted to, I could have counted the calories too.

So I took images of the first 4 days, as this is when I was at my dad’s and prepared it all myself. Here they are:

Monday: Pesto Fish with boiled potatoes, peppers and veg. 

Not gonna lie, I was so excited to make this. No idea why. I saw an image online and ever since, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. So I decided to get the ingredients and just make it. 

  • Fish (of your choice)
  • Pesto
  • Boiled Potatoes
  • Red Peppers
  • Carrots
Making this meal was actually kind of a "risk" because I wasn't sure how pesto on fish would actually taste to me. I can be known to be quite picky when it comes to food. Only because I only liked a small amount of food when I was young, and now as I'm an adult, I love experimenting. Not gonna lie, my taste buds were a little confused, because usually when I have pesto, it's on chicken. And eating this, I expected it to taste the same (don't know why). But I really enjoyed it, and it was really filling.

Tuesday: Chicken Stir-fry.

Okay I confess! I attempted to make my Mum's Famous Stir Fry and I FAILED!!! No one can make the stir fry like her, and I will HATE anyone else's. Including my own. I was so gutted as well, because I had been looking forward to this all day, and it just wasn't good.

  • Chicken breast
  • Mixed Pepper Stir Fry Mix
  • Light Soy Sauce
I was all ready to be proper smug with my mum, and prove that I could make a better stir fry than hers, and it completely flopped. Honestly have no idea where it went wrong! Might be because my mum uses Birdseye Chicken Breasts and I used regular???? Not a clue! But I sent her a picture and even she admitted, it looked pretty shit. So note to self: just leave it to the expert.

Wednesday: Homemade Prawn Linguine

I decided to put the two pictures up so it kind of made sense why it looks so weird and maybe gross???? Basically on a Wednesday, if I have the day off on Thursday, I go to my Nana and Grandad's house and we eat there for tea. 

  • Prawns
  • Tagliatelle 
  • Garlic
  • Dry White Wine
  • Double Thick Cream
  • Parmesan 
I found this recipe online and I LOVE IT! This is a brand new thing I'm obsessed with making. My best friend Phoebe has asked if I'll make it on holiday as well, so looks like we have one meal sorted LOL. I made a big batch for my dad and I, and honestly it's so DELISH! This is deffo one where I'd make a side post/video on how to make this. Although, I get stressed halfway through.

Thursday: Steak with diane sauce and veg.

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I'm aware there's A LOT of sauce on there. In fact, here's the conversation I had with Phoebe:

I'm a follow the instructions, kind of gal. And that's what it told me to put in! I realised, as I poured it out, that it was a bit too much. But OH WELL!

  • Sirloin Steak
  • Broccoli
  • Carrots
  • SA Sauces; Diane Sauce
SA Sauces is a brand that I came across at The North Leeds Food Festival. The owner had a stall, and we tried some of her sauces, and I bought some. I've been meaning to try a new one for weeks, and decided to use the Diane Sauce with my steak. And it didn't disappoint! Loved it! Check them out because they're super cheap and affordable!

But anyway, the meal. I thought the Diane sauce had a lovely kick to it! It was thick and creamy (sounds gross), and I really liked it. Highly recommend.

Overall, I loved making the food. I felt more in control, and I loved knowing what was being put into the meals. If you're feeling like you're in a slum and want to try out any of the meals, go for it and let me know. And if you want a recipe of any of the meals I made, leave me a comment or a tweet, and I'll do it!
