Currently on a bit of a working holiday in Wales and Pete recommended his salmon casserole dish. I’m not a big fan of salmon but this has definitely converted me a bit! It’s a super easy recipe, just a bit lengthy, so prep early if you have a set dinner time.
And of course, it’s naturally gluten free!
new potatoes, halved or third (depending on size)
garlic, finely diced
red onions, quartered
plum cherry tomatoes, halved
salt and pepper
Oven on 200 (celcius) and add the new potatoes into a casserole dish, and drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes.
Add the garlic and red onion. Cook for a further 10 minutes until the potatoes are nice and brown.
Add the tomatoes and beans and splash the balsamic in. Nestle in the salmon and add a tad of olive oil, salt and pepper. Cook for 15 minutes.
Add the asparagus on top and cook for a further 8-10 minutes.
Sprinkle the basil and serve.
Get comfy for a long read because all I’ve really done on this trip is eat at different (and sometimes the same) places! If you’re more interesting in lunch bites or takeaway, scroll on down to near the end.

I’ve complied a list of a few of the places we either ate at or I enquired about.

So I think by now everyone has heard of the TikTok pasta that’s been making its way around the internet. But, if you haven’t hear is my take on it!
November meant it was time for me and Dan to go on our annual overseas (Christmas) trip. I have always wanted to go to the Baltics after seeing a lot of photos from friends who had been, so cheap flight prices saw us heading to Riga. The cheap flight did mean we had to be up at sparrow’s fart to make the departure so we decided to stay at the Hampton by Hilton which is right next door to Stansted Airport. I booked an accessible room which was huge. It had a big double bed (it was quite high) and a pull out sofa – the mattress was
shit not the best. I shotgunned the bed as I was about to spend a week on a couch and Dan had to make do with the couch.

Earlier this month I took a trip over to Amsterdam to visit my friend Lizzy. Lizzy and I go back to 2009 when we met in the Royal Australian Airforce Gap Year program, she’s from Melbourne and now we both live on the other side of the world!

A couple of weeks ago I went and visited my mate Ben (previously featured in the kitesurfing post) down in Nottingham. I came from work in the Yorkshire Dales and had a bit of FOMO because my boss had been to a great tasting menu dinner and was raving about it. I wanted that, so I did some research on fine dining in Nottingham and convinced Ben we should go to Alchemilla (it didn’t take much convincing). We also invited Ben’s mate Rob – he’s coming kitesurfing with us in September – and we booked around a week in advance. Luckily they had availability during my stay. We had to give about 3 days notice for dietary requirements and 24 hours for disabled access (you can kind of see the ramp in the background of this photo).

Eating out can be a bit of a chore when you have allergies or intolerances.
Luckily for me, their are multiple places to choose from in London that cater for gluten free – and actually understand the dangers of cross contamination (and the fact that boiling water doesn’t kill off gluten!)
There are a few 100% completely gluten free restaurants and cafes dotted around including:

The topic for this month’s travel link up is if travel was a menu, where would your palate take you?
I decided to go with a 5 course menu because who wants to limit life to 3 courses?
The good thing about this theme is that it doesn’t just have to be places that you have already visited.

Yesterday I decided to try my hand at baking the traditional English delight that is Scones.
After scouring the vast gluten free library that is Coeliac Disease in Australia on Facebook, I found a simple recipe containing just 3 ingredients!
