Everyone’s lives are getting busier and busier, I work crazy hours and have started some new routines and life hacks to keep me on top of everything. However, Walkers new Tear ‘n’ Share crisps make your night off a bit more easier!
Walkers new Tear ‘n’ Share crisps are a delicious, thicker cut crisp with a great taste and more like the other big share packet crisps on the market. However, these new Walkers are in a unique bag that turns into a bowl, so you can tear open and share with friends and family. No need for any life hacks here or messy moments trying to tear up a normal bag!
Unlike these new Walkers we sometimes need a life hack and they have asked me to share a life hack of mine with you, so I thought I’d show you my lunchtime hack. You may have seen noodle jars on Pinterest, but a favourite of mine is cous cous salad in a jar. All you need to do is prep it the night before, then just add boiling water at work for a wonderful warm salad for lunch.
- 50g Flavoured cous cous
- 2 Tomatoes, quartered (or a few cherry toms halved)
- 1/2 Pepper, chopped
- Handful of spinach or rocket
- Pour the cous cous into your jar.
- Add in the tomatoes, spinach and pepper on top.
- Keep in a fridge over night.
- Add just -off boiling water when you get to lunchtime and leave to soak for 5 minutes.
- Stir and enjoy this warm salad out of your jar!
- Add in some chopped feta or smoked mackerel once you've stirred your jar up for a bit of something extra with your salad.
Hopefully you find my lunchtime idea useful, I know you could cook your cous cous in advance, but not everyone has the time to do it the night before and I don’t like to carry it in still warm to work. I just find it so much easier this way.
I also have some other kitchen hacks that may save you time for the future, try making extra curry paste and then freezing into usable portions for next time. This is useful for most types of curry! Also if you get smelly fingers from cutting onions/garlic/fish use cold water instead of hot and lemon juice to get the nasty cooking smells off your hands.
What are your life hacks? Have you tried the new Walkers Tear ‘n’ Share? Let me know in the comments,
P.S. Walkers sent me some of their crisps to try and compensated me for my time in writing this post. As always, I wasn’t expected to write a positive review and all views expressed are my own personal opinions.
