Ah, the summer holidays have begun, but we are not going on holiday. It’s kind of setting in now and I feel quite sad about it. At first I just wanted to stay safe, now I just want some freedom! Anyway, it’s summer time and I want my food to reflect that, but I’ve not really worked out how yet.
I didn’t write a meal plan last week. I was quite ill with a bad back and the pain relief I was given just made me feel really tired. In fact the past week has passed in a blur. I have added some new things to my menu this week and it’s also our Mindful Chef delivery, so we have two new recipes from them. If you would like to try Mindful Chef you can get £20 off your first box and I can get £20 off too.

I didn’t do a meal plan last week and spent most of the week in confusion. But the last one I did worked out pretty well.
I hope we can stick to the plan this week, but if we do make a change I think it will be a BBQ…where is the sunshine? If it comes back we will definitely be eating outside.
If you have kids and would like to get them interested in cooking, I’ve just become an affiliate for a fabulous kids monthly recipe box called Little Cooks. You can read my post about it here.
Have a lovely tasty week and here’s to Summer Time,
