Meal review

It's been OB birthday this week so everything has been a little hectic but a quick review of last week and a quick guide to this weeks meals....

Thursday - a BBC good food recipe courgette and bacon pasta - not a success would eat pasta when all sauce has been removed. I think it's to do with the look of the sauce too many bits in. However the rest I us loved it.

Friday - big bowl of salad I have seen one in a busy mums cook book of leaves, avocado, bacon and egg on top think I am going to do something along that line. Boys will have carbonara as salad is not that well received. Did just the simple carbonara and it was eaten all up, I put nothing extra and peas on the side. Simple seemed to work.

Saturday - fajitas for parents the boys will be having tortilla pizza. Massive success was eaten all up with smiles. 

Sunday - lasagna busy mums cookbook version with garlic bread and green salad. Another success after a wary start. All eaten up esp the pasta.

Monday - busy mums cookbook chicken and broccoli gratin. Ate the broccoli but nothing else. Did not like the look of the breadcrumbs on the top.

Tuesday - honey and mustard sausages busy mums cookbook with green veg. The potatoes were eaten all up the sausages as always were left behind untouched.

Wednesday - smoked haddock and potato bake not sure the veg but thinking runner or green beans. This was not liked at all by OB. But the rest of us loved it.

At this moment I am not getting anything that clear other than bits and fussy looking food. I shall keep watching and reporting to see if I can get any clues and to why and what he will not eat. I am determined to figure something out. 

This week it's sunday already 

Friday - tuna fishcakes

Sat - pizza and chips for OB party with the family

Sunday- chicken pie

Monday - spag Bol

Tuesday - quorn a la king

Wednesday - baked potatoes - beans and cheese

Feeding a Bee with sugar water

Have you ever been in the garden and seen a sad looking bee on the ground not really moving? You watch it for a while realising the poor little chap is really struggling. I have found several bees like this and tried to feed them sugar water. But my attempts to rescue them mainly ended with me trying to drown them, I was really not aiding them during their time of need. But I have finally developed a method that works so I thought I would share.

Mix together white sugar with a little water so that it completely dissolves, RSPB suggests 2 tablespoons of sugar with one tablespoon of water. I used desert spoons but the same ratio. The advice is never to use honey or brown sugar. 

This is what worked for me, move the bee to a paving stone, I used a strong leaf they tend to walk onto it, if not you can easily slide it under them, then drip a small amount of the sugar water in front of the bee. The bee will start to drink the sugar water and you will see it begin to get stronger. It is truly …

Planting LolliPop Trees Elaeagnus ebbingei

I can not believe the day had finally arrived, the trees we had put so much thought into were going to be planted.

We had the conifer and last shrubs removed and the whole area dug over and ready for the arrival of the LolliPop Trees Elaeagnus ebbingei.

Finding Elaeagnus Ebbingei

I was on the school run when they arrived. I walked round into the back garden to see five of the most beautiful trees in huge pots ready to be planted.

Mr MC&W had chatted to the team that the trees need to be the same height despite there being a slight slope.

It was great to see the tape measure out checking the spacing between each one, as this was such a crucial part of the design.

I can not believe how fast they got the first tree in and how polite they were when we suddenly realised it was overhanging the neighbours' boundary. They brought it forward no questions.


All five went in under 4 hours, I honestly do not think we would have one hole dug in that time.
Then they were planted and we could…
