Easy peasy lemon.... Chicken!

Last night I tried out a simple Lemon Chicken Recipe, that even my naughty kitten Lily enjoyed, by whipping the last piece off my plate and putting up an incredible fight for getting it back off her!

This is seriously, quick, easy, simple, affordable, tasty and kinda healthy too. What more do you want for an evening meal?!

OK... You will need for two people...

2 x Chicken Breasts
2 x Lemons
Olive Oil

* Pre-heat oven to 200*C

* First of all I chopped each Chicken breast into four 'chunks'.
* Quartered both Lemons. 
* Placed them in an oven proof dish. Alternating the Lemon & Chicken.
* Sprinkled with Italian Herbs and Olive Oil.

Pop in the oven for 40-45 mins.

After about 20 mins, turn the Chicken.

Put back in, for about another 20 mins or so, until the Chicken is cooked through thoroughly.

Voilá! Easy peasy Lemon Chicken!

Getting back into it

If you follow my Suncream and Sparkles Facebook page, you'd have seen I've had my Mumma visiting from the UK the past week, so I've been a little absent from all my social media. We had the best time. Walks and stopping for coffee in the mornings, chilling out by the pool, Mum making me go in the freezing cold water to swim, as I kept moaning about my bingo wings, lol, she said 'swimming is the best thing for your bingo wings' (which is soo true, swimming is one of the best exercises for your body). I only managed two lengths, haha. Seriously, the water is Arctic temperatures at the mo and I need to collar the pool guys to up the heat asap! We went out for some lovely meals, did some shopping, where Mum was very successful, me not so much, but I did see the most gorgeous bag in Matalan, you can find it here, but I resisted. At the end of Mums trip she gave me some money for it, as she knew how much I loved it! Yay! Another trip up there for me and hubby soon : )

So, after moping around Sunday afternoon and yesterday, missing my Mum and feeling that life is crap with no family or friends nearby and just poo pooing everything, the house felt so empty and lifeless and I just couldn't be bothered with anything and everything felt like a chore and just a big hassle. Get the drift I was a little bit sad and depressed, lol! But today, I'm feeling loads better. I've showered, been to the local shop to get a few ingredients for dinner (trying out a little recipe tonight, so watch this space, if it turns out well I'm sure it'll pop up on the blog!) and slowly catching up on all things internetty.

Whenever I've had some time away from my blog, I always find it hard to get back into it and I always find myself questioning is it all worth it? and what's really the point of this little blog of mine? But, I'm always drawn back in and love when I, get back into it!

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Some cuteness for the weekend!

If you didn't know already, I absolutely love my fur-babies! Even though they're still not getting on all the time, it is getting better. Tables are starting to turn and now Lily is getting a lot braver as she's growing and chases Poppy and 'pads' her legs and tail. I think Lily is just trying to get Poppy to play with her, whereas when Pops hits Lily, I think it's more that she's annoying her, lol. It's taking time and I know it won't happen over night, but I am confident that, one day, they will be best of friends! (well, Poppy tolerating her anyway haha!)
