McCain Home Chips Challenge

As a family meal, we aim to eat a healthy meal with at least two portions of fish a week. To accompany the fish, I always use oven chips at the same time. We only stock McCain’s chips as they have always been our favourite chips. I love McCain’s French Fries as it is very crispy and crunchy. While Mr C prefers the texture of McCain’s Crinkle Cut chips.

Flora Healthy Lunch Box Wrap

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client.
Both of my children school full time and each week I have to plan their meals. It is not easy to plan when you have two fussy eaters. We always go food shopping together and discuss what they like to eat for that week.
I was so pleased to do this Flora challenge and discover that they have so many tasty and healthy ideas on their website. We had to pick a recipe from the website and the children decided to cook Chicken Tikka Wrap for their packed lunch box.

Spicy Prawns with Pyrex’s Classic

As a busy mother of two, I always try to find quick and easy ways to cook a healthy meal and food that my family would enjoy. So when I came across Pyrex’s website for recipes, I found this 10 minutes quick and easy meal – Spicy prawns. Prawns is my son and my favourite seafood.

To cook this dish, I decided to use Pyrex’s Classic cake dish with handle. It is shallow and round which is ideal for cakes/puddings but I believe that this glassware is suitable for all purpose use as it is safe for oven and microwave. Since we have a small family, I think this is the perfect dish for cooking a small portion of spicy prawns.
