Confessions of a girls night in

Wednesday nights in my world are for girlie gatherings and trashy TV. It started off with Offspring and we have now moved onto The Bachelor! You have to be prepared for a good laugh, wine, great company and some awesome food. No dirty street pies served here!

Oh! Looking to redesign the overarching vibe of my personal page. Thinking concerning the modern design of https://prolifewellnesscentre.com? Certainly a spectacular Scarborough based registered massage therapist that cares if desired in the whole Ontario locale. Offer an opinion. Thanks!

My good friend Catherine and I use this opportunity to make healthy meals by modifying some old favorites, experimenting with new ideas or just simply trialling an awesome recipe we have seen on social media. Not everything turns out as planned. At times we get it wrong but we learn from these experiments and adjust accordingly for next time. Most of the time we create amazing dishes so I thought it was time to share these experiences with you guys on a regular basis. Last nights menu was pretty delicious so I thought it only fair to share.

Just because the girlies get together doesn't mean you have to gorge on chocolate, pizza and ice cream! Of course sometimes that's what you feel like and every now and then, that's OK! We do tend to indulge in chocolate most nights. But I am a self confessed chocoholic so you already know that's always on my menu

On the menu last night:

  • Cottage cheese dip and crackers
  • Sweet potato and chicken pasta
  • Orange chai tea

Cottage Cheese Dip

  • 1 tub cottage cheese
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice 1/2 lemon
  • 2-3 springs of fresh thyme
  • Salt to taste

Mix all ingredients together and serve with crackers or veggie sticks. Cottage cheese is high in protein and low in fat therefore makes the perfect dip or snack and won't ruin your dinner!

Sweet Potato Chicken Pasta

Method

  1. In a wok add the tinned tomatoes and sweet potato and bring to the boil. The sweet potato will take approx 15 minutes to cook
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a heavy based pan and cook chicken until browned and cooked through. Approx 10 minutes
  3. Remove chicken from pan and fry onion and garlic until fragrant
  4. Add capsicum, cherry tomatoes, chilli and oregano flakes and cook for 5 minutes
  5. When the sweet potato is almost done (check to see if it is cooked) add the chicken, atrichokes and tomato and onion mixture to the sweet potato pasta and toss through. Add salt and pepper to taste
  6. Serve garnished with some fresh herbs and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese
  7. Enjoy!

Sweet potato is a great alternative to regular pasta. It's full of B vitamins, manganese,potassium and vitamins A & C. It's a great gluten free option and it's full of fibre.

After dinner enjoy a nice cup of tea. Last night we decided on a sweet orange chai which was a lovely end to the meal.
