Meal Plan Friday 24th February 2017

The meal plan last week was full of new recipes found at BBC GoodFood. They were a real success and I will defiantly be cooking them all again. The only change was we did not have the ricotta tart as Sunday's ploughman type lunch left us so full we could not manage dinner.

This week is back to lots of old favourites, all are either quick or can be slow cooked. As we are not sure if Mr MC&W is working from home or will have to go to meetings. All the meals can easily be made smaller or ingredients frozen if not needed.

Friday - Fish, Chips and Peas

Saturday - Piri Piri Chicken with salad and a French stick for myself and Mr MC&W. The boys will have chicken curry

Sunday - Pork Schnitzel, mash potato and broccoli. Our fantastic butcher has already bashed the pork for me so it's nice and thin.

Monday - Sausage casserole with jacket potatoes

Tuesday - Gnocchi, Broccoli and Mushrooms I use a recipe from Jo Pratt the Madhouse Cookbook and of course pancakes for pudding.

Wednesday- Chilli  the boys are still not to sure about chilli but I will keep trying to see if they change their minds.

Thursday - Smoked Paprika Paella with Cod and peas found on the BBC GoodFood website

  5. I nearly had sausage casserole this week, but had a change of heart and went with burgers. Maybe next week.

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…

I am rather shocked that we are into November and December is slowly creeping up on me. 
The meal plan for the last couple of weeks has been a bit of a chore. For some reason I am finding it hard to decide what to eat and nothing is appealing.

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
Thursday - Fish Pie
Friday - Homemade pizza
