Chicken or Fish Parcels in association with Bacofoil®

Thursday, 31 May 2018
I was delighted to be asked to try out some Bacofoil® The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil and test the BacoLift® Surface which makes it non-stick. 



I made some Sticky Ribs which usually stick to own brand kitchen foils, there were no worries with Bacofoil® though, as they didn't stick at all.  The foil not only protected the oven tray, but because of the BacoLift® surface, there was no stuck on food creating holes in the foil allowing sticky rib sauce to seep through to the tray. 

Nothing stuck to the Bacofoil® at all, delicious sticky ribs with easy clean up.
Top tip: Always use the non-shiny side of Bacofoil® which is the side with the BacoLift® Surface.

I decided to make some Chicken/Fish Foil Parcels for quick dinners.  These are especially handy when we are eating at different times, or when one of us is home late and needs a heat and eat meal.  They sit happily in the freezer until you need them.  Using foil makes cooking hassle free and saves on washing up, brilliant for my family as we don't have a dishwasher.  And because this particular foil is non-stick there's no need to use oil or butter making it a healthier option.   

Fish or Chicken Bacofoil® Parcels

Per person/parcel you will need:

1 piece of frozen fish or several frozen chicken breast strips 
seasoning mix, I used Moroccan seasoning
1 handful frozen pepper strips
1 handful frozen sliced/chopped onions
1 handful frozen mixed vegetables

Lay a large square sheet of Bacofoil® Non-Stick Foil onto a work surface. Coat the fish or chicken strips in your seasoning mix.  Pile the frozen vegetables into the centre of the kitchen foil sheet. then top with fish or chicken.  


Bacofoil® The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil - "No sticking, no cleaning, no worries!"


Draw the longest sides up and then fold together until sealed.  Fold each end of the parcel to seal well.  You can put the parcels into a Bacofoil®All Purpose Zipper® Bag and freeze until needed.  


When you would like a delicious, quick dinner, cook parcels in a preheated oven at 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6 for 20 - 25 minutes.  Be very careful when opening the parcels as there will be hot steam, wait a couple of minutes after you have taken them out of the oven before opening them.  

To check that the fish is cooked through, open one of the parcels and see if the fish is piping hot and flakes easily. If not, reseal and return to the oven for another 5 minutes and check again.  Check that the chicken breasts strips are cooked through and no longer pink at all.  The food will simply slide off the foil and onto the plate.

Scrumptious Fish Parcel, quick and easy with no mess.

OUR FAMILY MEAL PLAN FOR WEEK OF 28/05/18 - £74

Monday, 28 May 2018
It's half term week for us this week.  On Monday my husband is taking our 3 older girls to see the new Star Wars movie and I'll be taking our 3yo son to the park for some play time.  Tuesday there's a forest trip for our 11yo, Wednesday is messy playgroup morning for 3yo, and Friday there's an event on at our local museum which will suit all ages.  Planning half term activities for everyone, that are low cost and suit vastly different ages, is a real challenge.

We've got some delicious lettuces and salad greens ready to pick from our back garden, as well as fresh herbs so we'll definitely be using some of them this week.  I've harvested more rhubarb and baked it so that will be used for breakfasts.

Breakfasts will be fairly relaxed most days. Granola with yoghurt and fruit or wholemeal toast and spread with a piece of fruit for afters.  There will of course be pancakes or waffles over the weekend.

Lunches

I've deliberately made lunches really filling and substantial to cut down on snacking.  All of the lunches are suitable for eating at home or putting in a packed lunch for my husband to take to work or for us to take on an outing.

Traffic Light Rice and Beans

2 Tblsp vegetable oil
4 spring onions, finely sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 ½ cups long grain rice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cumin
3 cups/750ml water, ideally from a freshly boiled kettle
400ml coconut milk
Several stalks of fresh thyme
1 pepper, any colour will do
2 carrots, peeled, grated
400g can borlotti beans, drained and rinsed
200g frozen peas, defrosted

Heat a saucepan over medium/high heat. Add your oil and saute the spring onion and garlic for a minute, stirring constantly.  Add the rice and spices, and stir well to make sure the rice is coated in the oil.  Cook for a couple of minutes until the spices are fragrant.

Carefully tip in the coconut milk and water, stir until combined before adding the sprigs of thyme.  Reduce the heat under the saucepan to low and cover with a tight fitting lid.  Leave the rice alone, covered and cooking for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes remove the lid, quickly stir through the prepared vegetables and beans.  Cover and turn the heat off under the saucepan.  Leave for 5 - 10 minutes for the vegetables and beans to warm through.  Find and discard the thyme stalks before serving.



Bacon and Egg Pasta Salad

500g pasta
¼ cup mayonnaise
200g cooked bacon, finely diced
3 spring onions, finely sliced
1 clove garlic
1 cup frozen peas, defrosted
1 cup frozen sweetcorn, defrosted
4 hard boiled free range eggs

Cook the pasta according to packet instructions and drain well.  Mix through the mayo, cooked bacon, spring onions and peas until thoroughly combined.  Slice the hard boiled eggs and top each serving with the sliced egg. 


Tuna Fritters

250ml/½ cup milk
2 free range eggs
1 cup self-raising flour
400g tuna in water, well drained
150g frozen sweetcorn or peas, defrosted
1 courgette, grated and moisture squeezed out
1 carrot, grated
1 pepper, finely diced
½ cup cheddar cheese, grated
1 Tblsp chopped fresh herbs, I usually use parsley or chives

Put the eggs and milk into a large bowl.  Whisk until combined, then gently mix in the other ingredients until a batter forms.  Put a frying pan over a moderate heat and grease with a little butter or oil.  Pour ¼ cup portions of mixture into the frying pan and cook until bubbles appear on the surface of the batter.  Flip the fritters over then cook on the other side for a few minutes.  This mixture usually makes around 15 fritters depending on size.



Egg Salad Sandwiches

5 hard boiled free range eggs
3 tbsp low-fat mayonnaise
1 tor 2 Tblsp lemon juice
150g frozen sweetcorn, defrosted
1 tsp fresh chives, finely chopped

Using a fork, mash the egg and mayonnaise together until you get the texture you would like.  We have ours slightly chunky but you can mash it until smoother if you prefer.  Add lemon juice to taste then stir through the chives and sweetcorn.  I like to add some freshly ground black pepper too.


Rice and Bean Bites

200g cooked white rice
400g can mixed beans, drained and rinsed
2 carrots, grated
3 Tblsp tomato salsa
½ cup grated cheese
1 free range egg
1 cup wholemeal breadcrumbs

Preheat your oven to 200C and line a baking tray with non stick baking paper.  Put all the ingredients except for the breadcrumbs into a food processor.  Blend until combined.  Alternatively put all the ingredients into a bowl and blend with a stick blender until smooth.  

Roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture in the breadcrumbs then put on to the prepared trays.  Spray balls lightly with cooking spray and bake for 15 minutes. Carefully take the trays out of the oven, turn the balls over and spray again with a little cooking spray.  Put back in the oven and cook for another 10-15 minutes until the outside is golden.  Serve with salsa or your dip of choice.


Bacon and Potato Salad

1 kg baby potatoes, boiled or baked until tender
300g cooked bacon, diced
2 carrots, peeled and grated
250g frozen peas, defrosted

Dressing
5 Tblsp mayonnaise
1 - 2 tsp English mustard
1 Tblsp lemon juice (or more to taste)

Combine the potatoes, bacon, peas and grated carrot in a large bowl.  Add the dressing and mix until evenly coated.  Serve or refrigerate until required.


Couscous Salad

2 cups couscous
500ml/2 cups vegetable stock, made with freshly boiled water
2 carrots, grated
300g cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 or 2 peppers, finely diced
250g frozen sweetcorn, defrosted
4 spring onions, finely sliced

Put the couscous into a large heatproof bowl, stir through the hot stock.  Cover with clingfilm or a large plate and leave for 5 - 10 minutes.  Uncover the couscous then stir through all the other ingredients.  Serve sprinkled with fresh parsley to garnish.

Speed Baking - Versatile Vanilla Cookies

Thursday, 24 May 2018
Who doesn't like a cookie with a well earned cuppa? I bake most days and this is one of my go to recipes for cookies which are tasty, easily adaptable, and quick to make.  It's also a fab recipe for when children announce there is a bake sale the next day.

Versatile Vanilla Cookies

Makes about 30 cookies

225g butter, softened but not melted
140g sugar
1 free range egg yolk, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
280g plain flour

Put the butter and sugar into a large bowl and beat until light and fluffy.  Beat in the egg and vanilla before stirring through the flour until completely combined. 

Chocolate Chip Cookies:

Mix through 150g chocolate chips.  Roll tablespoonfuls of the dough into balls, flatten slightly then place onto baking sheets lined with non stick baking paper - leaving room for the cookies to spread.  Preheat your oven to 190C/170C Fan/375F/Gas Mark 5 and bake for 12 - 15 minutes or until golden brown.  Leave to cool on the baking sheets for 5 - 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.



To make round or thumbprint cookies:

Roll tablespoonfuls of the dough into balls, flatten slightly then make a dent with a spoon.  Place on to trays lined with baking parchment, leaving room for the cookies to spread. Put a small dollop of jam, lemon curd, or chocolate spread into the indents.  

Thanks so much to my perfectly manicured friend who was a hand model in exchange for cookies.

Preheat your oven to 190C/170C Fan/375F/Gas Mark 5 and bake for 12 - 15 minutes or until golden brown.  Leave to cool on the baking sheets for 5 - 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.


Rolled and cut out cookies:

If you want to make shaped cookies you will need to chill it first to make it easier to work with.  Divide the mixture in half, shape into flat discs, cover with cling film and chill in the fridge for 30 - 60 minutes. 

Roll out the dough between two sheets of non stick baking paper until it's about 3mm or 1/8 inch thick. cut out your shapes then carefully transfer them to lined baking sheets - leaving room for the cookies to spread.  

Preheat your oven to 190C/170C Fan/375F/Gas Mark 5 and bake for 12 - 15 minutes or until golden brown.  Leave to cool on the baking sheets for 5 - 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.

OUR FAMILY MEAL PLAN FOR WEEK OF 21/05/18 - £70

Sunday, 20 May 2018
We've got a busy week this week, and after going back to work this weekend I'm feeling knackered and uninspired as far as our Meal Plan goes.  I'm sure we all have weeks where we're lacking in motivation and inspiration.  Our freezer meal stocks are low because I used up most of them when recovering from surgery, and we defrosted the chest freezer whilst it was fairly empty.

This week we've the usual after school club, a school concert, a dental appointment for all four children, and a work meeting for me.  I'll definitely be looking forward to the Bank Holiday Weekend coming up! 

Breakfasts will be granola, yoghurt and fruit compote as that's worked well and everyone is happy to carry on having it weekday mornings.  Weekend breakfasts will be crumpets and teacakes or pancakes.

Packed lunches will be falafel salad wraps and include a piece or two of fruit, crudites and a small baked treat for afters.  Weekend lunches will be Twice Baked Potatoes and Quesadillas served with salad greens and crudites.



Dinners




Homemade Pizzas with salad greens

Vegan Burgers with Sweet Potato Wedges

2 tins kidney beans, drained and rinsed
2 onions, finely diced
2 peppers, finely diced
1 tsp chilli powder
200g fresh breadcrumbs
about 1kg sweet potatoes, for the wedges

Sauté the onion and pepper in a little oil for a couple of minutes until it softens then leave to cool for a bit. Mash the kidney beans with a potato masher, leave it a little lumpy – not too smooth. Add the cooled sautéed pepper and onion along with the breadcrumbs to the kidney beans and mix everything together thoroughly. Shape into 10 burgers and fry in a little oil for a couple of minutes on each side, until they’re golden brown. Then put them in the oven at 180C for about 10 minutes until completely cooked through.

Wash the sweet potatoes and cut them into wedges, not too thick. Put a little oil on your hands and rub the wedges so that they get lightly coated in the oil. To cook the wedges, bake them in the oven for about 25 - 30 minutes at 180C.

Serve the burgers in buns with salad greens and slices of tomato with wedges on the side. I sometimes sprinkle a little paprika and/or chilli powder over the wedges to give them a little more flavour.







Pasta with Tomato and Chorizo Sauce

500g wholewheat pasta
600g frozen mixed vegetables
225g chorizo, finely diced
1 or 2 onions, finely diced
2 peppers, diced (any colour will do)
2 x 400g chopped tomatoes
1 or 2 tsp dried mixed herbs

Cook 500g wholewheat pasta with 600g frozen mixed vegetables according to instructions on the pasta pack.

Put a large frying pan over a medium heat and add the chorizo.  Cook, gently stirring, until the oil starts to run from the chorizo.  Add the onion and peppers, and cook until the vegetables have softened and the chorizo is cooked through and starting to crisp up slightly.  Pour in the chopped tomatoes and mix through the dried herbs.  Simmer for around 10 - 15 minutes for the flavours to develop and the sauce to thicken slightly.  Stir the sauce through the cooked pasta and vegetables.



Quinoa and Vegetable Curry

1 onion, finely sliced
2 peppers, deseeded and finely diced
4 Tblsp curry paste
400g can light coconut milk
400ml milk
750g frozen mixed vegetables
300g quinoa, rinsed

Put a large saucepan onto a moderate heat, add 2 Tblsp water then cook the onion, pepper and curry paste for about 5 minutes until the onion has softened. Add the milks to the pan and warm through for 5 minutes before adding the quinoa and vegetables. Bring everything to the boil and simmer for 10 - 15 minutes until the quinoa is cooked through. Season to taste and serve with rice or flatbreads.



Leftover Quinoa Curry Pasties

Leftover Quinoa and Vegetable Curry
2 sheets puff pastry

Preheat your oven to 200C

Cut each sheet of pastry into thirds. Put mounds of leftover curry on one half of each pastry third. Fold over the other half of the pastry third and crimp with a fork to seal the edges. Prick each pastry parcel with a fork so steam can escape during cooking.

Put on lined baking trays and cook for 20 - 25 minutes until the pastry is golden and crispy. Serve with mango chutney and steamed vegetables.
