My Top 5 Speedy Vegetarian Dinners.

Hello Everyone hope your all well, for today’s post I will be sharing my favourite vegetarian dinners. Now I have recently become a vegetarian on the grounds of watching a horrific slaughter-house video that just made me think about eating meat, now I am currently just vegetarian and not gone all out vegan, even though I need to stay away from dairy products anyway since I am also lactose intolerant. So When I first started this diet I was really struggling on what to eat for dinner, since that is when my family would eat meat products mainly, so I popped to my local supermarket which is waitrose and picked up a little meat alternative bits and these are the Top 5 things I like to have if I’m in a rush or I just don’t feel like cooking from scratch.

Linda McCartney vegetarian sausages.vegetarian-sausages-packshot

Now I was really amazed by these now I’m not actually not too keen on normal pork sausages, so I was comprehensive when I got these, but they are the best sausages I have ever had they are full with so much flavour, I normally think there is a stigma attached to vegetarian/ vegan foods that they are not going to be tasty, but these was better than the real deal in my opinion. I partnered these with a good helping of mash potato and a small tin of baked beans. It has become one of my favourite meals since starting this diet.

Quorn chicken and Mushroom Pie.

SCY250This is another great comfort food favourite of mine that I thought I would miss with not eating meat, but when I found this in waitrose I just had to try it and it really was just as good if not better than the real deal. I partnered this one with some buttery mashed potato and Heinz Five Beans Baked beans, and it was super yummy.

 

 

 

Linda McCartney vegetarian country pies.

Now this one is another that is so full of flavour it is unreal how much I love it. I partner this one with some mash and green vegetables like green beans etc.

Linda McCartney vegetarian mushroom and mozzarella burgers.mushroom-spinach-burgers-packshot

These are really tasty and have a lot of flavour that is a recurring aspect to the Linda
McCartney range, now I don’t normally like burgers, But I was intrigued to try these due to how good the rest of the products are so I tried them and loved them they are super yummy. I loved mine in a brioche bun with a slice of tomato and some chips.

 

 

 

Homemade Pasta Bake.

This one is really easy to make and you just really need 3 ingredients which is Cooked Pasta, Chopped tomatoes and cheese. You add the tomatoes and pasta in a baking dish then add the grated cheese on top and cook for about 20 minuets, or when the cheese melts and starts to brown. You can also add some herbs in with the tomatoes to add some flavour. This is great because it is quick and easy, doesn’t take too many ingrediants and tastes amazing, it is one of my favourites.

 

So these was my top 5 favourite vegetarian Dinners, I hope you found this useful and enjoyed this post. This was not a paid promotion in any way, and all of the opinions in this post are of my own. All Images have been linked to their rightful owners.

Home made Chicken, leek and white wine pie recipe.

Hi everybody I’m finally back with another post, the reason I haven’t posted in a while is because I’ve taken some time away from most social media over the past couple of weeks since I have been very busy with my birthday and then also super busy with work since I’ve been doing extra hours etc. So anyway I’m back with my chicken, leek and white wine pie recipe now this is one I made from scratch except from the pastry, now I served mine with mashed potatoes and some mixed steamed vegetables, so I hope you enjoy this recipe.

Ingredients- 

2 tablespoons butter

2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs or breast.

2 cups Chicken stock 

2 medium leeks, trimmed, washed and sliced into 1/2 inch pieces

2 carrots, peeled and roughly chopped

2 teaspoons dried thyme 

2 ½ tablespoons flour

1 glass white wine

1 ¼ cups milk 

salt

pepper

1 lb puff pastry ( I used ready rolled from the shop)

1 egg ( for egg wash on pastry)

Method- 

  1. In a large pan poach chicken until cooked all the way through in some chicken stock, carrots, leeks, thyme and salt & pepper.
  2. Once poached remove chicken and veg through a sieve and keep chicken stock in a separate jug.
  3. Tear chicken in to pieces with two forks. 
  4. Add butter and flour into pan and keep on stiring whilst that turns into paste, keep on adding the chicken stock bits at a time until you get to a smooth custard like consistency. 
  5. Once the roux has finished take off heat and keep to the side.
  6. Add the chicken and vegetables back into heat and add in white wine and milk and keep stiring keeping an eye that it doesn’t burn to bottom of pan, then add in the roux sauce made before and simmer until mixture thickens, stirring often.
  7. Once this is simmering roll out the pastry and cut out enough pastry to cover top of dish, it doesn’t need to be perfect at this stage as we will trim later
  8. Once your chicken mixture has thickened up, leave to cool slightly since putting pastry on top of it whilst it is still hot will cause the butter in the pastry to melt and it will become soggy.
  9. Once cooled add mixture to dish about 3/4 of the way, then add pastry on top, trim up the edges of your pie using a knife.
  10. Place in oven at 200°c, gas mark 6 just until the top of pasty has gone golden brown, mine took around 15-20 minutes, but this may differ on other ovens. 
  11. Once golden brown take out of oven and enjoy with some mashed potatoes and vegetables on the side. 

So this was my recipe for my homemade chicken, leek and white wine pie, I hope you found this useful, thank you very much for reading.

Tips for getting a good night sleep.

Hello everyone hope your all well today I will be sharing some tips on how to get a good night sleep, now these all work for me but may not work for everyone so here is my top tips for a good night sleep. 


This one is a must for me since I always sleep my best once I have fresh clean bedding. I recently brought this set from George in Asda and I’ve fallen in love with it. 

This one is my favourite ways to get off to sleep, I like to use some lush bath bombs and bubble bars with some essential oils in to help get you off to sleep, like the icicle baby bot bath bomb or the baa bar bubble bar.

I also like to use lavender oil on pressure points behind my ears and on my wrist, this calms and relaxes you ready for bed.

This one usually works on me I search for some sleep therapy Music on you tube and it normally sends me off right away.This is great for your overall health and wellbeing, but can also help you have a better night sleep, I also have a bottle of water next to me at all times during the night because I normally wake up in the middle of the night extremely thirsty.
So these was some of the things that I like to do to help me get a good night sleep, they may not work for everyone but they all work for me. Thank you for reading.

Zoella lifestyle seaside stroll candle, review.

Hello everyone hope your all well, so today I will be posting my review on Zoella lifestyles seaside stroll candle, now I purchased this candle last week and been on stop burning it ever since, it’s  scent is fantastic with strong waves of fresh sea air and ocean mist, it really does take me back to holidays down by the seaside in bognor regis or Weymouth, the scent also fills the room which is great since some other candles may smell good when they aren’t burning but lack in the fragrance once lit, so that is  a major plus. I purchased mine from Superdrug drugstore for £10  which is quite a reasonable price for how long it lasts and the quality of the product it’s self.  One thing I love about all of zoellas products is the packaging she defiently knows how to do some amazing packaging and this one is truly amazing the way it opens up to the scene of a beach with deck chairs is just superb, and the colours of the products are just spectacular, a real winner in my opinion.

So overall this product is a favourite of mine from the scent, to the packaging and of course how long it burns for, O would recommend this candle to anyone that is as obsessed with candles as I am, so I’m going to give this product,⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

Thank you for reading this post I hope you enjoyed this and I will link where you can purchase this product down below.

L’Oréal Paris pure clay detox face mask review.

Hi everyone hope you’ve all had a fab day, I’ve spent my day at work so I thought I would unwind by writing this post on a review of L’Oréal Paris pure clay detox face mask, so I hope you enjoy this post. 


I brought this product in Superdrug as I wanted a new face mask to use since I ran out of my sachets that I normally stock up on, and that’s when I saw these in the shop and thought I would give them a go since I’ve heard so many good things about this collection from L’Oréal, that I just had to purchase it. I decided to get the detox one since I defiently think that my skin needs a detox, and I’m really glad I picked that one because my skin has never looked that good after a face mask ever and I’ve used a lot of face masks. It says that this mask is meant to purify, clean and brighten skin along with the added black charcoal to draw out impurities in the pores, it just made me think that this was the one for me. I was not disappointed once I used it since the creamy texture makes it easy to apply and makes it a more relaxing and pleasant experience, easy to smooth on the face in an even layer. It takes about 10-15 mins to dry throughly and then it is easily removed with warm water, then just wait for the magic feeling of your skin once it’s removed, you won’t be able to stop yourself touching your face due to the fact it’s super smooth. I also found that My face had never felt cleaner before that, I also noticed that after a couple of uses my skin has been clear from blemishes and less oily than before. The price is also a great deal for the quality of the product I got mine from Superdrug for £6,so well worth this price tag for the amount you get plus the quality Of the product seeing I feel like it really does what it says on the box. The scent is also very pleasant and is easy to apply close to the nose unlike some face mask which do not have a pleasant scent and can be quite over powering,I recommended this product for people with quite sensitive skin since I suffer from sensitive skin when it comes to face mask and they normally bring me out in a rash and sting quite badly,but this one was really soothing and did not irratate my skin through out the process. In the UK you can purchase the range from Boots, Superdrug or any shop that sells beauty or skin care products. So overall I would definitely recommend this product to anyone that loves a good face mask and relaxion or someone with sensitive skin that needs help soothing it. I give this product ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

Thank you for reading my review of this product, I will link the websites of where to purchase this product from up above. Don’t forget to like and share this on social media. Thank You.
