Guess what? We have our oven fixed…over two weeks without an oven and I can honestly say it’s not been good. I was so pleased when the technician turned up this morning and fixed it. I can finally start cooking things in my oven again. Last week went okay. We didn’t get our toad-in-the-hole thanks… Continue reading Weekly Meal Plan, Back in the Oven!
I haven’t done a meal plan in a while. Cooking has become such a chore. It doesn’t help that we have been without a proper oven for over a week and don’t know when it will be fixed.

For many people, getting out all the crockery to make a meal from scratch is a massive chore, especially after… Continue reading Why Cooking Is Your Secret Relaxation Weapon
When Cooking Becomes a Chore I didn’t write a menu last week. I was just so fed up of cooking. I winged it and we ended up having two take outs! The first was planned as it was Star’s birthday and she wanted a pizza from Dominoes. I always use Top Cash Back* (referral link)… Continue reading Weekly Meal Plan – When Cooking Becomes a Chore
Trying Something New I’m a bit late with my menu this week. We are trying something new. We’ve been having issues with food, being totally fed up of the regular meals we were having and the cupboards and freezers were stacked up with food we don’t really want to eat.

Hot or Not? Last week we decided to fit in our BBQ. We had the hottest day of the year and the boys had spent the whole day in the pool in the garden keeping cool. We got all the BBQ food ready and just as we were about to take it all outside, there… Continue reading Weekly Meal Plan – Hot or Not?
We have started the week with another birthday. It is Boo’s 13th and I made her a lovely lunch of pizza, sausage rolls, mini poppadoms, french fries, cheesy biscuits, chicken pops and cake to follow. They had a lovely time. For tonight’s dinner I’m just making them hot dogs and the grown ups are having… Continue reading Weekly Meal Plan – Another Birthday
