Meal Plan Saturday 9th July 2016

It's a rather busy week coming up and Mr MC&W is working from home. Meaning a bit more thought has had to go into the meals this week.

Saturday - a huge plate of salad containing avocado, crispy bacon, blue cheese, loads of salad leaves and tomatoes with a sprinkling of honey and mustard dressing. It was meant to have roasted new potatoes, but I ran out of time,  so used the emergency crouton pack.... Every busy house needs one. The boys had the always popular fish and chips with peas.

Sunday - roast chicken breast, roast potatoes and fine green beans for the boys. We had chicken breast stuffed with blue cheese left overs from last night it was then roasted on a bed of courgettes, red onions, mushrooms and tomatoes served with roast potatoes and spinach.

Monday - pulled pork burgers with chips for us all. Not sure what the boys will make of this but it's worth a try.


Tuesday - Fish and rice for the boys this will be oven roasted cod with plain rice and peas/sweet corn on the side. We will be having a cheats meal of Mediterranean rice and cook in the bag fish, served with fine green beans.

Wednesday - Tuna Pasta bake for everyone with loads of veggies

Thursday - the boys are having mash , sausages and beans. We are having chicken Kiev with new potatoes and green veg

Friday - mini meatballs for the boys and normal sized meatballs for is. An easy to prepare meal that can be put in the oven.

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…

Sunday - Roast Chicken, the boys just love this meal and normally clear their whole plates.
Monday - Sausage Casserole with Jacket  Potatoes
Tuesday - Chicken Curry
Wednesday - Tuna Pasta Bake
