Recipe Good for Eyes - Soy Milk Soup with Oysters & Vegetables
Oysters, said to be the "milk of the sea," are rich in nutrition. They contain a lot of zinc and are the most efficient way to obtain it. Zinc is good for the eyes and prevents age-related macular degeneration.
This soup also contains spinach, which has a lot of lutein, which is good for eye strain, dry eyes, nearsightedness and presbyopia.

THURSDAY calls for FALAFELS!!! Kids had tennis and packed teas tonight which were slightly cobbled together!...but adult tea tonight was falafels based on a @bbcgoodfood recipe... Made with:
1 can chickpeas - drained
3 cloves garlic - crushed
1 onion - diced
1 large handful of fresh coriander
1 heaped tsp cumin
1 heaped tsp ground coriander
1 tbsp flour
1/2 roasted sweet potato - cooked (optional I just had one lying around!! Waste not want not!!!)
1 tsp harissa
Salt and pepper
Drizzle of olive oil
What you need to do:
Fry the onion and garlic first in a sauté pan until soft and then place into a food processor along with the other ingredients.
Blitz until combined. You may need to scoop the mixture down from the sides a few times.
It’s quite a wet mixture so before you take a spoonful out wet your hands as this will help to shape your mixture into balls or patties.
You can either fry these in oil or for a slightly healthier option you can pop them in the oven on a well oiled baking tray.
Bake in the oven for around 20/25 or until crisp on the outside. Flip them half way through.
Enjoy with salad and tahini dressing or pop into a pitta with some red pepper humus!! Yum!
Have had such a lovely day today catching up with some great friends I used to work with...back in the day!! We were reminiscing about our child free, care free London days!!...not that I would change anything in the world for what I have now, obviously!! But I do miss the spontaneity of just being able to pop out for a quick drink without having to plan babysitters etc first!!! Anyone else with me?!? Xx •

Thickness of Sliced Beef
Shabu-shabu and sukiyaki are not only representative Japanese one-pot dishes, but also representative of Japanese beef dishes. The beef used in the dishes is sliced in a certain way. It seems to be unusual to find sliced meat sold worldwide. However, it is normally sold in Japanese supermarkets and butchers. Also, the thickness of meat used for shabu-shabu and sukiyaki is slightly different. This shows how methodical Japanese are. Although it seems that there is no strict definition, the thickness for shabu-shabu is usually less than 2.0 mm, while the thickness for sukiyaki is usually between about 1.8 and 2.5 mm. Why is the thickness of the meat different? Shabu-shabu and sukiyaki have different cooking methods. In the case of shabu-shabu, because the sliced meat is dipped into the boiling broth and taken out quickly, the meat must be done at once. Therefore, it must be thin. In the case of sukiyaki, because the meat is sauteed or boiled, it is almost always thicker than the meat used in shabu-shabu. Please check out our shabu-shabu and sukiyaki recipes if you like. If you have the opportunity to eat shabu-shabu or sukiyaki, it might be fun to compare the thickness of the meat. However, there are restaurants that offer the same thickness, so in that case it would be difficult.
