Meal plan catch up - Monday 3rd August to Sunday 16th August 2015

I promise I have been doing our meal plans but with school holidays, the baby bump and not knowing were Mr MC&W was going to be based for work I seem to have lost track of writing it up. So here is a little update from the last couple of weeks....

Monday - A ready meal we had left over from holiday as it was catch upon all housework and Mr MC&W was in London

Tuesday - From the Madhouse Cookbook by Jo Pratt - Mushroom, Broccoli and Gnocchi we all had this but no mushrooms for the boys.

Wednesday - One my Mum always made us Milanese style sauce with spaghetti. This is a family recipe which we love, we all had this one.

Thursday - Homemade frying pan pizza, always a family favourite

Friday - Chicken Curry- I must admit I do buy the sauce, it will be Korma as they boys have got into curry

Saturday - Mr MC&W was on his brothers stag do so the boys and I had Jackets, Beans and Cheese as I had no idea how long it would take to get the boys down to sleep.

Sunday - Ready Meal - As hubby would be back late and shattered I decided it was simple to get in a meal I could pop in the oven and not think about

Monday - Hot Dogs with onions and salad - trying the new Tesco Finest ones

Tuesday - Jackets with Chili beans with added courgette, mushrooms and peppers. Boys had beans, cheese and egg again.

Wednesday - Baked Mushroom Risotto. The boys had a tomato risotto.

Thursday - Meatballs with a tomato sauce - I made this in the slow cooker and will be sharing the details, Boys had Spag Bol

Friday - Hallomi and Aubergine Burger from BBC Good Food the boys had Fish and chips

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…
