    2 months ago by traceysblog Tonight's dinner was one of our favourites.  #thaigreencurry  using  @gleniskinsta  0% coconut yoghurt instead of coconut milk. To die for! This time I tried it with chicken & king prawns & it was a huge hit. The entire pot has 4-5 syns depending on how much Thai paste you use (and which brand. I used  @tescoirl  own brand which is 1.5 syns per tablespoon). The other syns come from the yoghurt (1) and bit of cornflour (.5) We're talking 2 syns per portion but it is SO worth it oh my God. A regular Thai green curry would set you…

    2 months ago by traceysblog I couldn't march today because of this little dude but I wanted to say that I am 100% supporting  #repealthe8th  and believe that women should have the right to choose the fate of their body and reproductive future. I really can't imagine getting an abortion & I hope I'm never in a situation where I have to think about one, but it is not my right to decide if others do or don't. I personally know women who have been in exceptionally difficult situations where a complication in their pregnancy, or the health of their baby, put their own life…
