Trinidadian Cooking in the UK {Multicultural Meal Plan Mondays}

I love food and I enjoy cooking but I must admit I’m not the best at presentation. Ironically since becoming a parent I cook less but graciously Hubby pulls up the slack. Since I come from Trinidad, I thought I’d share some recipes and ideas for Trinidadian cooking.

In a quest to resume cooking more for my family I thought I’d join my fellow bloggers from the Multicultural Kids Blog network and write a Meal Plan Monday post. Immediately, I can see the benefits: reduction of grocery shopping stress; less wastage; and a more balanced diet for the family.

Below are the meals  for the week starting 21st October ending on the Friday. I’ve borrowed a few recipes I’ve borrowed from Trini Gourmet (THANKS Sarina!)

I’m an expat mom, originally from Trinidad, West Indies. I now live in the Greater London, England. My blog Tiger Tales is about mainly about my son, Angelo and I. He’s part Chinese-Italian part Black West Indian. He looks totally like his dad, who’s Chinese-Italian. The blog is named in honour of Angelo, as he was born in 2010 the Chinese Year of the Tiger.  I write about my everyday life as an ‘older mom’. Since the blog was created I’ve since had a baby girl, Valentina, she features in the blog also.  I chart their milestones, touch a bit on early years learning and write product reviews from time to time. You can also find me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Instagram.
