Meal Plan Saturday 11th June 2016

OB was taken into hospital last week with due to his type 1 which was a very scary time for us as a family, he is home now and much better and we also have a lovely piece of Gammon in the freezer. This meant we had curry on a Sunday night which was very enjoyable.

This week we are trying some new food!! Not sure how it will go down but the boys are willing to try so let's see.

Saturday - Mr & Mrs MC&W are having a chicken salad with crispy bacon, avocado and a honey and mustard dressing with garlic dough balls on the side. Boys are having chicken nuggets, chips with peas and sweetcorn.

Sunday - We are out for the MIL 70th birthday lunch in a rather posh hotel, please wish me luck.

Monday - Calzones and salad, not sure how I will make this one but there are a lot of ideas online.

Tuesday - A Cheesey pasta, ham and Broccoli bake that I found on BBC Good Food

Cheesey Ham and Broccoli Pasta Bake

Wednesday - Pea Pakora Pockets I found these on BBC Good Food online, the boys love peas and curry so worth a go I think.

Thursday - Mini toad in the hole with mash and green veggies another BBC Good Food idea

Friday - Homemade chicken Fajita not too spicy for the boys with mini wraps

Annual Seeds Review

A little while ago I wrote a post, I was full of excitement because we had sewn a few packets of seeds on a small side border. I had visions of a border carpeted in the most wonderful flowers.

Annual seeds to update border

Sadly this has not been the case, we watered them and I did not even weed for a while as I was not sure what was growing weed or wild flower.

We are now mid-August and this is what we have.




Well, not a huge success is it? I have to laugh at how sad these two flowers look.


There a couple reasons I know they have not worked, my youngest son has turned into a plant destroyer. He has pulled off petals and whole flower heads, he stomps through the border snapping plants under his small podgy feet. Then factor in slugs and snails who think they were planted as a tasty treat.




We have had some success and they are very pretty just a shame not in abundance.





Will I try this again? yes, I will try this again and in the same place. Next time I will sew a lot more seeds, they are not t…

Front Garden Grow Your Own

Introducing our garden equivalent to the messy cupboard. You know the place where you shove all the stuff you are not sure what to do with, this is the same but in our front garden. The problem is we look at this every day from our kitchen window.





Time for action, we moved to this house as its fairly rural, we wanted space to grown some veggies and have chickens. Its now 7 years later and we have not done any of it. 

We sorted the area and Mr MC&W went off to the tip with a boot full of rubbish that we had been hiding including an old washing line.



As you can see the ivy has remained, this was meant to go but we checked for nests and found a blackbirds nest, so we have left it alone allowing them to raise their chicks.


We decided the way forward is for raised troughs, they are higher meaning we can easily see from the kitchen window. In order to maximise the space we have, we found three different sizes of troughs to see what worked best and measured them out using bean poles, you cou…

Growing Dahlia Plants from seed

Earlier this year I stumbled on a link called "Blooms for Bees", you would need to grow Dahlia plants from seed and then count the number of bees on the flowers and submit your finding. I am a huge fan of bees and thought it would be fun.

One morning a beautiful envelope dropped through the letter box containing three small packets of seeds. I was excited but also a little concerned as I have never really grown anything from seed. I have seen my Mum grow vegetables from seeds, we grew up in a house where in spring we were dodging plants on window sills in fact everywhere, but I had never really caught the bug. Maybe to do with the fact I worked in hotels and never had any garden or space to call my own.

First stop was the garden centre to buy a seed tray and seed compost. I happily sewed the seeds, placed them on a sunny windowsill and waited. I did not have anything to water them with so found an old baby cup, it tricked out the water perfectly.




Not all the seeds germinated bu…
