  • 20 uncooked medium prawns, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup finely crumbled goat cheese
  • Cut each bacon strip in half widthwise; set aside. Wrap a basil leaf around each shrimp. Wrap a piece of bacon around each; secure with wooden toothpicks.
  • Place in a foil-lined 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 375° for 14-16 minutes or until bacon is crisp.

    My partner and I don’t really ‘do’ christmas and the baby is too young to know any different (and isn’t on solids yet in any case!) so we’ve decided to go retro with our menu . . .

    Prawn Cocktail (with King Prawns & Avocado)
    Steak & Chips (with mushrooms, onion rings & other classics!)
    Mince Pies and Brandy Cream (about as festive as we get!)

    I bought a pack of pre-cut cabbage which already contained cut bacon strips. Does raw bacon have to be cooked before adding the cabbage to the pot? I fill if it was all wrapped together why would I have to pick off the bacon to cook first?

    I just started on a diet. My question is is it healthy to eat the same balanced diet everyday. I can’t seem to afford anything but the bare minimum of like plain yogurt eggs wheat bread, etc. I have the same schedule of food for breakfast lunch and dinner. Is this bad?
