Day 14: Blog Everyday in May.......... Food Glorious Food

Hey by wonderful beauties How are you all doing today :) 
Well todays topic is none other that Food Glorious Food :) :) 
"Share your favourite recipe. Talk about the best cocktail you've ever tasted. Or maybe share you fave restaurant experience. Lets talking about food!"
Well let me tell you growing up we didnt exactly have the most luxurious of foods :) 
or breakfasts consisted of either egg and toast and cereals 
lunches were always sandwiches 
and dinners were simple Stews, chicken curries or sausages beans and potatoes simply things like that 
Even though They were delish at the time and still to this day I would eat them as I loved them 
But me I like trying out different foods I Like trying anything new having a big family of my own I like to give my kiddies all different dishes to try out and I still need to learn more about cooking myself 
Sometimes its easy to just put stuff in the oven or chip pan to cook quickly especially for hungry kids but I do try to make dishes on a regular basis that my kids will feed their kids or my kids will come back in years to come and say mum can i have the recipe of this and that :) ;) 
I love when my kids come after school and get excited with the smell of the kitchen and say "Mammy did you cook your curry today" it feels amazing and its special too :) I am not a cook in any way and i am not a professional under no circumstances I have alot to learn but I will share with you some recipes I have up already on my blog and Some of my favourite dishes I like to eat and make for my kiddies :) 
First of all the most popular dish in my house is
Kids find it very hard to eat vegetables when you ask them too they make such a great big deal out of eating them as we all probably did when we were kids but been a parent its very frustrating if your kids dont get their daily dose
So Why not add them to their favourite dish 
I have already got the recipe up to this check it out I do make more than what i should so I can put some in the freezer and take it out on days I know im going to be too busy to prepare a dinner :) 
Spaghetti and Meatballs
This is not my own recipe but I got this recipe for the sauce from Someone else a long time ago and stick to it ever since its delish :) 
1 onion, chopped
about 4 cloves of garlic, minced
4 small cans tomato paste
4 cans water
2 tall cans (15 oz) tomato sauce
garlic powder
bay leaves
salt and pepper
parmesan cheese
Add all the veg you want which I normally do 

Saute the onion and garlic in a bit of olive oil. Combine all the ingredients in the crockpot or large cooking pot on the stove. I didn’t measure any of the spices, but used about 2 tsp of each, less for the garlic powder. I use 2 bay leaves. Salt and pepper are to taste. I used about 2 tsp of sugar and about 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese. 
Chicken Casserole 
4 to 5 chicken fillets 
4 to 5 carrots chopped 
2 onions 
2 sticks of celery (option)
You can add what ever vegetables you like :) 
25g butter
500ml of chicken stock 
25 g of flour
Salt and pepper
fresh thyme  
200mls of fresh milk 
Cooked the chicken and butter for about 5 minutes in a pot on a low heat.  all all the rest of the ingredients aka vegetables, parsley, salt pepper and thyme cook for a further 5 minutes Add the flour Add the stock and the milk and stir continously until the mixture thickens up slightly
