I finally managed to make it to an Indian supermarket this week, I ended up in Walsall at Johal Supermarket, the main reason was that they had parking!! But I was impressed by the range of products on sale and will definitely be there again soon. I managed to buy loads of dry and tinned … Continue reading Week 13
Green soup This was a bit of an experiment that actually turned out really well the first time. I was cooking a roast chicken last Sunday and I hate only having one thing in the oven so I was mooching in the fridge to see what I had and there was loads of green stuff! … Continue reading Green Soup, delicious hot or cold
