Meal Plan Friday 1st September 2017

It is here the week I have to get myself back into gear and think about packed lunches again and evening meals that can be prepared in advance or cooked fast. As the children will clear the cupboards on getting home.

Friday - Chilli Bean Wraps with avocado, Sour cream, Cheese and lettuce. The boys had Mcdonalds (again, as I said this blog is totally honest) on Thursday so will have fish and chips tonight instead

Saturday - Italian Style Burger loosely based on this but I have brought in the chicken burgers and will serve with a crispy green salad

Sunday - Roasted Sausages, Potatoes and red onion with honey and mustard sauce. Boys will have similar but not too much sauce or onion.

Monday - Cajun Chicken Gumbo

Tuesday - Cheats Pasta Bake

Wednesday - Meatballs all homemade

Thursday - Tuna Melt Wedges with crispy salad

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
