Hi hope you’re having a great week! Now we’re flying through February and en route to March which is officially Spring, so you can give yourselves a pat on the back because you’ve nearly made it through winter. It’s still chilly obviously at the mo and those winter bugs are knocking around so keep warm and take care of yourselves.
Now I finally have the use of my kitchen back I’m throwing some good warming healthy hearty meals together. I’m now finally the proud owner of Le Creuset, something I’ve aspired to and promised myself once the kitchen was done (or nearly done!).
Amazing heritage and reputation as one of the world’s premium cookware, so whether you’re a gastro genius or a Jackie Kabler in the kitchen, you can make all sorts in these fantastic pans!
What’s great is that you don’t have to do long and complicated recipes that take hours with all the marinating and simmering etc, you can throw some bits in a pot and it’s all done inside 45mins even with the chopping and prep!
So here’s one I did just the other night of a easy and quick chicken casserole. It was tasty, healthy and really hit the spot after having the flu last week – great nutrition. Some chicken thighs floured and seasoned then browned off in the Le Creuset pot on the hob for 5 mins, in with the stock, some veggies and then pop it in the oven for 40 mins at 200 degrees and hey presto! Loved it!
In other news lots to look forwards to at QVC, some fab shows coming up. We are in a transitional period for fashion at the moment as we edge into Spring/Summer, I’m no expert but the one thing that stays consistent is that accessories are king!
They have the power to make outfits and change the game with your style. Look out for Accessories with Ashling, she’s a big champion of Marc Fisher footwear and Amanda Wakeley handbags. Clarks shoes contribute to cut the mustard in the style stakes and also watch out for Manas.
On Monday there’s a cracking fashion line up in the afternoon with Accessories with Ashling at 4pm, Butler and Wilson at 6pm (that’s a gorgeous shirt and crazy leopard bag from the show) and Biba at 7pm.
