Week of Meals for a Family of 8 | Family Dinners, Meal Ideas | Shamsa

Stay away – I was a customer for over 10 years but decided to move all of my websites (at a cost to me obviously), due to their complete incompetence and having to deal with the worst customer support staff. 10 years ago I was an advocate, but if you sign up with #hostgator or any of their associated businesses, you’re only going to make your life harder. Customer support take 7 days on average to respond, and when they do, they keep asking you one question at a time, even though you have given them everything they need to get the job done. So you send a request, 7 days later they come back with “what is your account id”. You respond immediately saying “it’s already provided in the original ticket, but never mind here it is again. 7 days later they come back with another basic question such as “what is your account password”. After two months of this, for a basic request, you contact live chat. They come back to you saying “Sir, you have to be patient and wait”. You’ll never get anything done! Mark

Welcome to my latest video, where I share a week of meals that our family enjoyed!

This is a follow on from my most recent meal prep video, which can be found here: https://youtu.be/ksGMRUS2Jr4

Spicy Peri Peri Rice Ingredients:
– 500g Basmati Rice (soaked for at least 30 minutes)
– 1 Onion & 1 Bell Pepper (chopped)
– 2 tablespoons Sunflower Oil
– 1 tspn each Salt, Paprika, Cumin Powder, Turmeric Powder
– 2 tablespoons Peri Peri sauce (adjust depending on how spicy you want your rice)
– 1 tablespoon Tomato Puree or Ketchup

Method: Heat the oil in a pan on medium heat. Add the chopped onion and pepper and saute. Add the spices and salt, add the rinsed and drained rice, peri peri sauce and ketchup and stir until well combined. Add 1 litre hot, boiled water and stir. Turn heat to high, bring to boil, then turn to lowest heat, cover with pan lid and cook for 10 minutes. For best results, allow rice to rest for 10 minutes before serving.

    Love your videos, Shamsa! Just one thing–a friend of mine who is a scientist urged me not to bake anything on foil as there are harmful chemicals in it. I know it's super convenient for cleaning purposes but would caution you against it.

    Great vlog, really enjoyed it. I have a request, please can you make a different type of vlog like the old ones. I would like to see something different in between these cooking and shopping haul ones. Maybe if you can squeeze a little time, a make-up/ pamper session would be fun, plus you haven't worn make up in a good while!!😖😁I used to also find the vlogs where you would read people's comments so funny. Who else would like a little change? for old times sake…lol!!😘
