Lamb Biryani…….yumm mmy

As promised, I got my recipe books out and made one of my favourite dishes…….Lamb Biryani.  Lamb is one of my favourite meats to eat and this recipe is still my favourite dishes from Slimming World.  My containers came out and meals portioned out for the coming week and I am also going to make a lentil soup to give a vegetarian dish.

Monday is the start of the week and as kids go back to school Pilates and Zumba classes start back this week!  Its a special week for Zumba as we are celebrating 4 years of teaching at Goodmayes Baptist Church! Let the birthday celebrations begin!
