Tea…Green Tea

If anyone has ever offered me a cup of green tea, I have always politely declined.  I had a bad experience with some green tea ice cream once; it was gross!  But lately I have been expanded my tea trying palette and was intrigued when I was asked to try out some Matcha Green Tea Powder from Kiss Me Organics.  With the powder, I received a link for a pdf recipe book with loads of stuff in – hot drinks, cold drinks, baking, pizza dough, sauces…loads!  I never really realised how much you could actually make with green tea powder!

Tried & Tested No. 2

A few weeks ago, I shared 5 recipes that I had tried, tested & enjoyed.  I’m back again to share another 5 with you!

We are still trying to cook meals from scratch and only buy the ingredients we need for the meals we have planned to have that week.  I know that some people love meal planning and some people don’t.  I like it because we hardly ever have food go to waste or out of date.  I also like that we often make a larger portion of a dish and then freeze the rest for another night, which is great if we have a few errands to run when Adam gets home from work and then we can’t be bothered to spend an hour preparing food!  How do you plan for your meals?  Do you batch freeze?  How do you do your food shopping if you haven’t got meals planned?  I am eager to hear what other people do, as I am open for new techniques/ options.  Meal planning seems to work for us at the moment but I find it really hard to keep our meals varied!

Anyway… here are a few recipes that we have tried recently and what we think about them!
