ALL KINDS OF JUICY! (CHICKEN & MANGO SALAD)

Salads never have to be boring! It’s one of the few dishes in the world you can get super creative with. It doesn’t have to be completely green nor dose it have to be completely tasteless. One of my favourite salads is chicken and mango, it’s juicy, it’s colourful and boy oh boy is it delicious. It’s great if you’re trying to keep your eating habits light and healthy, so you can let rip on Christmas.There’s all kinds of juicy going on in this salad. Get the recipe here: Advertisements

It’s been a while since I’ve cooked with rosemary and boy oh boy have I missed it. To smell, it’s so beautiful. To look at, it’s so beautiful. To touch, well it’s actually a little rough. We all have our flaws. However, it’s Sunday and that means it’s funday, so that means my house is stuffed full of people and people need food. So, I decided to feed these hungry people a traditional Sunday roast with rosemary and lemon chicken. It was so so good! Get the recipe:
