Meal Plan Saturday 27th August 2016

It has been very hot here in the south East over the last week, meaning that non of us have really wanted to eat. 

The chicken satay its safe to say we will not be having again. I like it when someone else makes it but not made by me.

The potato Muffins were good to try but very dull. We will have again but they need extra cheese, ham and flavourings. I will try these again with some major changes.

As its bank holiday weekend I want to have a little rest from cooking so some easy meals have gone into the plan.

Saturday - Curry this is a ready meal but as we are still watching the food we eat this will be a healthy eating version. Boys will have nuggets, chips and peas.

Sunday - Another ready meal, tesco had a lovely lamb dish with crushed new potatoes and loads of green veg. The boys will have roasted gammon with roasted potatoes and veg

Monday - Mr MC&W and I will be trying venison burgers with a few cheeky chips. The boys will have pasta with tomato sauce.

Tuesday - our favourite madhouse carbonara

Wednesday - hassle back potatoes with a tomato sauce and veggies. I have never made these but they look interesting.

Thursday - fish finger sandwiches again these are new to our family but worth a try.

Friday - another new idea risotto balls.

  1. I don't think you can ever go wrong with fish finger sandwiches :) #SundayBest

    1. How we have never had them I do not know!!! Xxx

  2. Sounds great! I love a carbonara x #sundaybest

    1. Me too and not to much egg either hate it when it scrambles xx

  3. Hassle back potatoes are one of my favourites, hope you like them xx #PicknMix

    1. I liked them the boys were not fans, but could well have been my cooking of them. The idea of new potatoes done like that really appeals too xx

  4. These all sound great, I love the sound of risotto balls. Also, I love a fishfinger sandwich! #picknmix

    1. The risotto balls were really great and the boys loved them with a big plate of salad. I cheated and served them with tomato ketchup not sure I should admit to that though hee hee hee xx

  5. Sounds lovely! I always meal plan a week in advance too so I know what we need and can budget too. I have Friday evening 'off' cooking so we normally have a takeaway bag from Tesco or something! You cant beat a good curry and hassle back potatoes sound interesting! :)


    1. You have to have a night off or a treat or it can become so boring. We love charlie Bingham meals with a bottle of wine in this house. xx

  6. The risotto balls sound really good, I've never tried that.thanks for linking up to #SundayBest x

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…
