Singapore Vermicelli

My favourite Chinese dish in the whole wide world is Singapore Vermicelli.
The mixture of spices, vegetables, and insanely thin rice noodles are just a match made in heaven.

How I mustered up the energy to make this dish I will never know.
I was super tired after being out all day, and wasn't really in the mood to cook.
What I really wanted was to order a huge Chinese takeaway.
I am so happy I resisted, as I am over the moon with how amazing it tasted. 

It was way better than any Chinese takeaway version I have had, and it was quicker and cheaper to make too.

Currently Reading

I have loved reading from a very young age, and usually read a 2-3  books a month.
Lately I have enjoyed reading these types of blog posts, as it can help me to pick out books that I may not have heard of, or necessarily come across whilst browsing Amazon, or Waterstones.

As reading is a big part of my life and something I have a lot of love for, I thought I would start doing one post a month all about the books I am currently reading.

I hope you enjoy :)

Mushroom & Pancetta Pappardelle

It's that time of year were the majority of us are pretty much battling some sort of cough or snotty nose.
The first thing I do when I have a cold is eat all the food, but I don't want to be spending hours cooking in the kitchen or piling the pounds on.

My body craves carbs, and pasta is my all time favourite carb.
I never tend to eat creamy sauces, an absolute travesty I know, but they can be so, so high in fat. I usually just opt for a tomato based sauce.
But a genius hack is that using low-fat Philadelphia and no oil, well this reduces the fat content in this dish lots.

Who says you can't have your cake (pasta) and eat it huh?
