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 feel like I'm winging it again this week. I logged on last week to find that there were no grocery slots until Wednesday so I don't even have my weekly shop yet!! I've booked next weeks shop already, got to get in quick these days. Last week went well though, despite all the pork… Continue reading This Weeks Menu – Winter Blues
So much of what we do in life is all about mindset. For some people, jumping out of an aeroplane is fun - for others, it’s a nightmare. The same variations in attitude occur concerning cooking.

Good news is, we managed our BBQ (which was on my last published meal plan) and got to use my new garden table.… Continue reading My Weekly Meal Plan
This week I am joining in with Katy Kicker and her Meal Planning Linky. I'm hoping to make this a regular thing as I'm hopeless at sticking to making meal plans ot only that but my shopping habits have become a mess. I'm spending more than £200 a week on food and we are still… Continue reading Meal Planning Monday
I love baking bread, nothing tastes better than a fresh loaf of bread, and nothing smells better than the taste of one baking.
