3 tbsps of yoghurt (I used thick goats yoghurt, Greek Yoghurt would be equally as nice, but any will do)
1/2 a tin of chickpeas- rinse so they are not too salty
Small chunk of fresh ginger – finely diced
Handful of coriander, de-stalked and chopped
Handful of sultanas
Squeeze of lemon juice
Sprinkle of seasoning
Cut the potatoes into evenly sized chunks and place in a saucepan. Cover in a kettle of boiling water. Bring to boil. Turn down and boil for a further 10-12 minutes. Then leave to cool.
Place potato in a bowl, and add ginger, coriander, chickpeas, sultanas and lemon juice. Season. Add enough yoghurt just to coat the potatoes. This should be around 3 tbsps, but put in however much you think best.
Here is a painting I did yesterday for our Lichtenstein project (ready for going to a Lichtenstein Exhibition later this week). The painting is based on an advert from a food magazine advertising a quality knife brand.

This post is to let you know that my mum, administrator of “Live Grow Nourish Create”, has started up a new paleo food blog, called Primal Family Nourishment (which you can check out here)
Viv, administrator of Primal Family Nourishment says here in her about page: “This blog is to document our progress as we transition towards a “primal” way of eating emphasising fresh meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, and minimal high fat dairy.”
I got an ice cream maker earlier this month; A Magimix De Glacier, with a 1.1 litre freezer bowl. So far Ive made two ice creams with it. The first was made with coconut milk, and it was not as such ice cream… but a slab of ice… So this time we decided we’d make try and get a better consistency and texture, using yoghurt! Following a recipe that came in the box with my ice cream maker, we made a Raspberry and Yoghurt Ice Cream (Surely that’s a frozen yoghurt? ) . Anyway, sweet, but taut, and actually looking and tasting very ice cream like, I was pretty pleased with it Here’s the recipe:
100g Caster Sugar
3ooml Yoghurt (We used St. Helen’s Goats Yoghurt, which has a thick and creamy texture; maybe this helped with the texture of the ice cream)
We served it with chopped hazelnuts and chocolate chips. You could just as easily add these to the actual ice cream; just churn the ice cream for 10 minutes, add the chocolate chips/chopped hazelnuts, and churn for another 1o minutes.

Post 7 interesting things about yourself.
As Usual, I’m Gonna Do The 7 Interesting Facts First.
So, here they are: (Sorry, running out of interesting facts )
I will eat pretty much any food, but I don’t like pak-choi, or stuffing, and I don’t always like things made with flax-seed.
I do not mind Shakespeare at all. In fact, I love Shakespeare’s works!!! I find lots of people at my acting group groan when the teacher says we’re gonna do Shakespeare! Not me!
When I come in after we’ve been out in the cold, bet any money that I’ll ask for a hot-chocolate! (If my little brother doesn’t beat me to it :D) A similar thing happens in the summer: If the temperature exceeds about 20 Degrees, I’ll ask for a smoothie
I watched every episode of Strictly Come Dancing when it was on this year! My favourite couple was Kimberley and Pasha, but I knew Louis was gonna win when he did that amazing show dance!!
I love to play Civ! I have both Civ 4 and Civ 5, but only really play 5. I am currently playing on difficulty Warlord, on my own map scenario
I used to go to Athletics Club. I stopped that a few years ago to focus more on my swimming. I am now in Pre – Competition Class. I still, though, can’t do a forward roll in the water. Apparently, I’m “getting there” though
We got a Shakespeare knowledge game for christmas, and I’ve played it three times, and my little brother beat me twice. Hello, I’m the one who’s watched and acted Shakespeare plays. How can he beat me! How embarrassing lol
