One day each week wearing normal clothes seems to help mental wellness and even brings a tiny bit of the old normal back again into your life – even briefly.
Loved doing it
Also @rylan you’re so good.
Core strength and tummy.
Please message me here if you would like to talk to me on anything. I may do some ‘Instalives’ soon.
Please do share this post.
2 brown onions
Teaspoon brown sugar
Couple of cloves
Couple cloves of garlic
Chicken stock (made from a previous roast chicken dinner and frozen in small bags ready for use) or a well-flavoured vegetable stock.
Slice/s of sourdough toasted.
Quantities make enough for 1 self-isolating hungry person or 2 less- hungry people according to the amount of chicken stock you use.
The cloves, sugar and caramelisation of the onions are what give the soup its zing!
Our grandparents were clever to never waste any food. They had to be. They were rationed. We are used to abundance so I’m going to be demonstrating my ways of using leftovers for tasty recipes that could stretch across a week.
Video clip 1 is a Sunday roast- chicken, baked potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic.
Photos are a chicken, leek and onion pie with the remainder of the roast potatoes sliced on top and then baked in the oven topped with seeds and breadcrumbs (that fell off my sourdough loaf when I sliced it) and olive oil on top.
Video 2 chicken stock from all the meat and veg remains and additional herbs and leeks and onions and green vegetable water.
Healthy eating helps immunity.
Positivity can improve immunity
We all like to find a bargain or two to add to our wardrobes when we’re not re-wearing or upcycling our clothes- as the Duchess of Cambridge did last night at the Baftas.
Wearing vibrant colour can bring you joy and brighten up your day.
Sometimes it’s good to venture out of your comfort zone and experiment.
Today I’m wearing :
Cotton crop polo-neck from Zara (under £10)
Blue trousers from Zara sale £5.99 (reduced from £29.99)
Heels from TK Maxx in 2019 (around £30)
