Turkey & Chick Pea Casserole

Hello there,

I’ve been playing about with the ingredients in the cupboards this week & I’ve found a winning & tasty combo.


Here’s what you’ll need ……

◾  2 turkey steaks, diced into small pieces & any fat removed.

◾ 1 tin of peeled plum tomatoes.

◾ 1 tin of Mexican bean mix.

◾ 1 small tin of marrowfat peas.

◾ 1 small tin of chick peas.

◾  Chilli powder, garlic flakes, mixed herbs, salt & pepper to flavour.


I also added a chicken stock cube & also a little squeeze of tomato puree to help thicken the sauce up.


Put everything into your dish & cook for 30 minutes at 180 degrees.


20 minutes in give it a stir & remove the lid for last 10 minutes.


Serve it up with whatever takes your fancy, tonight we opted for brown rice.

Sit back and enjoy! 👌

Eyeshadow + Lipbalm = Lipgloss

Hey there,

Have you any eyeshadows that you’d love to have in the same colour lippy?  Well why don’t we just make some ourselves? It takes 2 minutes & there are as many colour options as we have eyeshadows.



We’ll need a clear lipbalm, a spoon & a lip brush to mix it altogether.



If you’ve made extra then with your brush just paint it on the inside of a vaseline lid or something similar. 
We all have an eyeshadow pallette with some bright or loud colours that we wouldn’t necessarily wear on our eyes so why not get use out of them this way, a neutral eye & bold (homemade) lips!

Is this something you’d try out?

Thanks for calling by.
