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.
My job is supporting people with spinal cord injuries live their daily lives, and one of the people I work with loves cycling. Late April he took on the challenge of the Mallorca 312 (doing the 167km option) on his handcycle, which means I got to go along to the wonderful Balearic Island of Mallorca.

After last year’s lockdown birthday I wanted to something this year for my 31st. I decided to stick with Scotland, still wanting to explore, but most importantly, wanting somewhere with a hot tub.

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.

After Athens I found it was cheaper to fly back to Glasgow from Israel (with help from my British Airways Executive Club points). Luckily, I found a rather cheap flight from Athens to Tel Aviv. Why Israel? a) I found decently priced flights b) the history and c) the scenery! I had also heard that Israel is one of the safest countries to travel to alone as a solo female.

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!

Well I’m shit at blogging, last one was from July! My bad! Finally back at it with this blog about my trip to Budapest in November.
Remember my mate Dan from the Colorado Ski Trip and from last year’s trip to Warsaw? If you don’t remember (and can’t be bothered looking at the previous posts) Dan is a full time wheelchair user with a spinal injury (paraplegic). He’s also my travel buddy.
And this time we’ve gone to Budapest.

One of my school friends, Phil, moved to Warsaw about three years ago to continue his studies to become a doctor. I finally got around to booking to go see him this month and my mate Dan decided to come along too.
