Domestic Goddess my arse!

These are the recipes I'm good at... quick, simple, out of the store-cupboard and onto the plate fare. I never spend more than 30 minutes faffing in the kitchen. So there.

This will be my recipe & homemadey remedy diary.

If you have those 'OMG! It's lunchtime and all I've got is a parsnip and a packet of boil in the bag rice.' moments, then you're a kindred spirit and you know that bad planning is often the mother of great food. So welcome to fast slurpy soups and 'really?' salads made from what's left in the fridge.

Never, ever believe there isn't something wonderful to make from the last 3 ingredients in your kitchen. Unless those ingredients really are fairy liquid, eggshells and dead flies.

Betty Boop Beet Berry Heaven Juice

This is heavenly - the colour is the colour of a wicked girl's knickers and it tastes just as naughty. The great news is - it's so good for ya - you can do something scurrilous later and your naughty/nice balance will still be even!

You do need a juicer and a good strong hand blender to make this lovely juice. 

2 raw boop boop beetroots (don't even think of using cooked)
1 apple
1 nectarine (stoned - oh I'm so resisting the joke... it's killing me!)
1 parsnip (don't panic - you won't taste it, it adds body and goodness)
small handful of frozen mixed berries (or you can use fresh blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, whatever berry you like)
1 large chunk of lemon, rind on (more or less, depending on how zingy you like it)

Juice the beets, lemon and then put through the parsnip, nectarine and the apple.

Add the berries (frozen or fresh) to the beaker and blend with the hand blender. Add ice if you're using fresh berries and you like it cold.

*info taken from a number of online sources, I'm clearly not a doctor and you obviously won't get all this benefit from one small juice. These are some of the benefits listed for the ingredients. Just sayin'.
