I made this for a dinner yesterday even though we’re trying to be good because it was Monday, and we had a few wake ups from a coughing Imogen the night before, and it was raining. This is the perfect comfort food for when you’re cold and tired in my opinion!

I asked Vincent to choose a recipe from my Jamie Oliver 5 Ingredients cookbook and he opted for Quick Asian Fishcakes.
However, as you may know by now, I’m not a very good recipe follower. (Sorry, Jamie!) So I just took inspiration from his use of salmon and the addition of chilli jam on top and ran with my own recipe instead.
My, my what a beautiful meal it turned out to be! It was so fresh and tasty, looked absolutely gorgeous, and yet it was so incredibly simple.
Who’s hungry? Vincent and I, so this recipe serves two.
Chop all your herbs and then finely chop the salmon. It’s okay if some pieces are…

I know I know, I’m so late to using spaghetti squash as angel hair pasta substitute bandwagon. My eldest daughter has been telling me for years “Mom, you have to try spaghetti squash instead of pasta, it’s so good! It’s part of the Whole30 plan.” But honestly I just couldn’t do it! I would tell her “I only have pasta maybe twice a month, and when I crave pasta I want pasta! Not a veggie substitute.” As you can see I’ve known about spaghetti squash for a long time, but just couldn’t bring myself to make it as a pasta substitute. So yeah, I was a holdout.

Mexican food is one of my family’s favorites. We have a local Mexican restaurant that we love, but I’ve made a conscious decision to not eat out as much. But – today, I was craving Mexican. I decided to make chicken fajitas.
I started with 2 chicken breast, cut into thin strips – you know, just like the fajitas you get at your favorite restaurant.
I was only adding peppers and onions to my fajitas – I used one red bell pepper, one green bell pepper and one yellow bell pepper – along with one yellow onion. I sliced them all into thin strips.
I decided to use my cast iron wok to make the fajitas – but, you can use any large skillet. I started by spraying some avocado oil spray in the wok. I added my chicken and seasoned with 1/2 of the seasonings that the recipe calls…

For something filling but not your usual (not mine at least!) breakfast food… you can put pretty much any veggies you like in there, in any proportions!
The ingredients I used were:
I part cooked the potatoes in the microwave, then just chopped everything and chucked it in a pan until it was all soft. Lovely!
