Meal Plan Friday 17th February 2017

Half term has come to an end, the weather on the whole was really quite pleasant. Its lovely to have some warmth in the air. We met up with friends and had lots of time in the garden. We are all rested after the chicken pox and ready for the new term.

The meal plan went well and I must write up the ham and tomato spaghetti dish we had it was very nice and easy to make.

Friday - Mr MC&W and I will have Portabello Mushroom and blue cheese melts served with french fries. I found this on BBC Goodfood and it looks really interesting. The boys will all have fish fingers and chips

Saturday - Spag Bol with garlic bread

Sunday - Mr MC&W and I will have a Mango Chicken, Rice and Bean Bake. Again I found this on BBC GoodFood. The boys will have roast chicken breast and all the trimmings.

Monday - Mr MC&W and I a Mushroom, Ricotta and Rocket Tart. The boys will have a tomato and cheese tart. Both served with lots of salad.

Tuesday - Curry Chicken Skewers - For the boys I will use Korma

Wednesday - Fish Pie Fillets with lots of green veggies

Thursday - Grilled Halloumi with spiced couscous. I will try the boys on the Halloumi but with more of a salad vibe.

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…
