RECIPE: Quick Snack Mini Bruschettas

Firstly, let me apologies for my lack of blog posts the last few weeks. I have finally moved into my new clinic in Hale and I have been so busy I've just not had a chance to post - so I'm very sorry!

You all know how much I love my food - especially my lunches! Sometimes though I am so busy and in such a rush I don't always have time to make a 'proper' lunch - even though my salads and courgetti lunches only take 10 minutes, this is for when I only have five!

I do adore any kind of bruschetta, and you can make this with whatever veg that you have in the fridge. You can also make it on any kind of bread or cracker that you like. My ultimate fav bread is sourdough - Hands down! However, you can make these with whatever you wish.

Courgettes are super yummy and to make these all I do is slice them on an angle, then fry in some garlic oil for a few minutes until golden. I then top a spelt cracker or piece of toast with them. You can drizzle some balsamic glaze over or just a little salt and pepper - simples!

For the tomatoes above I have just sliced them in half and mixed them with a bit of garlic oil, salt and black pepper and some balsamic vinegar.

Then, for the avocado and peppers I sliced an avocado up and pressed it on to the bread with the back of a fork. I then tore some piquante peppers from a jar and placed them on top. Finally, I had some pre-grilled peppers in a pot from M and S so just added these on top. Drizzled with balsamic glaze and sprinkled with crispy onions! Yummy!!

They are so super simple and really really quick. If you don't have a kitchen to work in, you can always make the toppings in the morning and stack it all together at work on some crackers.
This is so speedy I really hope you try them. You can add any vegetables that you like!

Happy cooking

EATING OUT: Stockyard Hale

Sometimes in life only a burger will do! Tonight was one of those nights. It's Sunday and well, on a Sunday I always feel the need to have a certain kind of food - if you know what I mean! That type of food you generally just eat with your hands and then apply to face! ha ha! This certainly hit the spot! BIG TIME!

I have eaten here quite a few times in the past and seem to get stuck on their 'Big Fat Platter' to share. We usually find ourselves ordering it feeling positive that we could fit something else in after - main course perhaps or even dare I say dessert, but alas no! We are ALWAYS defeated! This time however, I was determined to have two courses... And I did! *Proud face*

Here are a couple of pics from tonight's dinner. We had 'Loaded Nachos' to start and then 2 burgers. One 'Johnny Cash' burger for hubby and a 'Half way to vegan' for me. Oh and by the way, their sweet potato chips are to DIE for! Seriously filled a major hole in my tummy!




I really recommend this place, it has such a chilled out vibe and the food is tasty with meals that I would say are not for the faint hearted! The staff are nice and friendly and the decor is super cool! Why not check it out next time you're in Hale 

Hope you all had a great weekend
