Cooking TIME

So since i moved house i have been learning to cook with a little help from my friends and a little help from the lovely Jamie Oliver, first i tried lasagna which didnt look so pretty when it was finished but tasted good.

Those of you who know me know i tend not to eat ' food of colour' i dont do peppers veg, fruit or anything so quite a big deal that there is now peppers in my fridge all the time!

Easing myself in with shepherds pie

And then i made veg soup which was really nice and one way of getting my 5 a day lol

And then Jamie arrived, my lovely friend Leanne (& kevin) got me the latest Jamie Oliver book after hearing how little i cooked for a new home present so thanks guys i love it.
So first thing i tried was Fajitas inspired my Laura and Will lovely dinner party they did while we were in London

i didnt quite follow the recipe but they tasted blooming good!
So next thing was a big thing, i made a Pie, i used a jamie recipe which was a chicken and leek one but i did it with mushroom, broccoli and carrots to shake it up a little lol

Pretty impressive i think, so today im making some soup for lunch this week and might try a stew and some cakes as i have 100s of eggs to use up.
If you have a recipe to share feel free
thanks for stopping by xx
