Mother’s day tends to be a little bittersweet for me. I get a little bit sad as I am hardly ever in the same country as my mum then. So, I resort to cooking a great big spread along with some drinks, a skype session, rather a lot of tissues and a whole load of catching up.

I can’t complain too much though as the kiddoes and Freddy proceed to thoroughly spoil me the whole day. Yeap, I get breakfast made for me, lovely home-made cards and some rather interesting jewellery that F gets the girls to pick up from the local charity shops 🙂

So, what will I be whipping up for this Mother’s day?  It had to fit three criteria: it had to be easy as I wanted to spend less time in the kitchen and more time catching up to my mum and hanging with the kiddoes. It had to involve at least one African recipe, to cater to the Sierra Leonean in me.

But most importantly it had to involve fruits and fish as my mum adores these. Luckily, I had just stocked up my freezer with freshly frozen staples, including 6 different sorts of fish from Iceland Foods (yeah, I love always having these to hand) – so it was easy to come up with a three-course extravaganza that fit the bill perfectly.

Starters – will be these rather finger licking hot and spicy chicken wings. Pretty much pop in the oven and 18 mins later, out come these, oh yes THESE chicken wings.

Main dish – a flavourful jerk snapper stew served with some pepper pineapple fried rice.  Adapted from Jamaica all the way to Africa. Hello freshly frozen snapper and freshly frozen cooked rice. You are my new favourite things.

Dessert – The world easiest dessert aka treats from their 50-piece party dessert platter. Seriously one of the best dessert ever especially as all I have to do is as in take them out of the freezer, defrost and serve.

I think you guys know that I dig Iceland Foods right? I can honestly say that their frozen range has been a lifesaver plenty a time. I love the fact that I can stock up my freezer with their eats and can therefore pull some very good quality and nutritious food.

Whether it is for that the weather is nice so let’s have a kid’s picnic moment, impromptu girly gathering or me throwing together a quick healthy breakfast to a 3 course Mother’s Day offering. Yeah, Iceland Foods are my kind of awesome. Find out more about them on social media using #PowerOfFrozen.

Alternatively, just order online and get your food delivered directly to your front door.
