Cooking in my tefal acti-fryer

So i am extremely lucky and for Christmas my parents brought us a tefal acti-fryer. They were brought one the previous year as a wedding present and absolutely love it. So a few times ive been over for tea and had chips in there and they were amazing, so they decided to buy me one as well!

So i thought in this blog post i would tell you how i use my acti-fryer and why i like it! Im thinking of filming a youtube video or two soon as well so you can see it properly! There are so many different things you can cook in the acti-fryer but these are the ones ive done and loved so far.

Roast Potatoes

So i used to get so fed up cooking a roast dinner and doing roast potatoes and them being caked in oil and be so greasy, then washing up afterwards was an absolute nightmare! But now i dont have that problem! So this is how i did them.

  Peel the potatoes and cut them into the size you want
• Put them in the acti-fryer
• Season them if you want, i usually put a few cloves of garlic in
• Add a spoon full of oil with the green spoon provided
• Depending on the size you have cut the potatoes, i put mine in for 40 mins
• Press the timer on the acti-fryer to the time you want
• Press the on button
• Its as simple as that!

Potato wedges

These are amazing, i do these instead of chips as its less faffing around with cutting them, however when Decarlo does them he cuts them into chips, so it depends what you fancy!

• Peel the potatoes if you want we like them with there skins on (less faffing too)
• Cut them into wedge or chip shape, whatever you fancy!
• Season them if you want, we add the chip seasoning as its yummy (occasionally we do salt, pepper and chili chips)
• Add a spoon full of oil with the green spoon provided
• Depending on the size you have cut the potatos, we usually put ours in for 40 mins
• Press the timer on the acti-fryer to the time you want
• Press the on button
                                                          • Its as simple as that!

Cleaning you acti-fryer is super easy as you only use the tinniest bit of oil and most of it is used in the process. You can just wipe the acti-fryer clean but because we always had spices and things to ours we give it a proper wash, the rotating paddle comes out and then you just wash the pan and spoon. Its idiot proof! Below are some pictures of potatoes and seasoning i use etc.

So thats it for this week, please comment below if you would like to see a video of how i use my acti-fryer! See you guys next week for another blog post!

Visiting Santa at Trevena Cross Nurseries

Today we took Eloise to visit Santa at Trevena Cross Nurseries in Breage, Cornwall. We took her last year when she was a lot

younger and it was great, but it was even better this year!

They had a little market on selling stuff from local businesses, like jewelry, bread, cheese, photos, crafts etc.

Then they had the santas grotto which is amazing, as your in the que they brought round chocolates, then there was a snow globe which you could stand behind and have a photo which looked amazing! There was also a enormous polar bear and fake snow and a talking owl and post box which is amazing for the kids.

Going there was free, and it only cost £5 to go and visit santa but the money goes to there chosen charities. When you go into the actual grotto there is a fantastic display of lights and status of animals, before you see father christmas so its a lovely experience. Then at the end you get to choose your own present from santa so theres stuff to suit all ages. This year Eloise chose a toy…
