LION’S HEAD MEATBALLS

LION’S HEAD MEATBALLS

I have a very easy tasty Asian inspired  meal for you Galley Peeps.  Pork meatballs so full of flavour and tender cooked on a bed of greens in my Omnia stove top oven but you could easily make in a covered wok or baking dish.

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 3 and 4

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 3 and 4

Still breathing, still kicking, still haven’t killed each other. According to the Whole 30 timeline we are about to hit the ‘Kill all things‘ phase, so I planned our meals with lots of carb-dense veggies to help offset any carbohydrate withdrawl. On Day 3 though there was a moment when I felt a serious PMS session coming on but without the P or the M. At one point, François said: “Leave it to me to find your one last nerve!”…
