Meal Plan Saturday 20th August 2016

The boys have been doing so well on trying new meals and the healthier diet for Mr MC&W and I has been a success. I was shocked by how much I do not miss bad snacking and the desserts we used to have were so full of calories.

Though OB does not like noodles which surprised me as he loves spaghetti. He has come so far as he will now try new food and that's all I can ask of him.

Saturday - Cajun Chicken with homemade chips - this again is from the Hairy Bikers Diet Book I will try the boys on it too

Sunday - Sausage Pasta, chili and sweet tomatoes - this is from Jamie Oliver's Healthy Eating book and looks really nice. The boys will have the sausages with roast potatoes.

Monday - Savoury Pancakes found these on BBC site and they look tasty and different

Tuesday - Simply roasted cod with plain rice and mixed veggies the boys love this simple dish as do I  because it's so easy to do

Wednesday - Bacon and Potato Muffins - found these and they look amazing, boys hate bacon so will do ham instead

Thursday - Chicken Satay - I have no idea how this will be received but want to give it a go. I will serve the sauce in a bowl in the side

Friday - some kind of meatball sub - there were lots on line but not one I really like so will make simple little meatballs and and a passatta sauce then serve on crusty rolls with some cheese. A bit of a make it up as you go. Will post if it works out.

Deadheading Petunia

Today I learned that I have been deadheading my Petunia incorrectly for, wait for this, four years, yes you read correctly four years. I could not understand why my once blooming amazing petunias were not blooming anymore and had black bits on them. I had seen these black things on my Petunias every year but did not really think anything about it.  A google search and I had a breakthrough. My petunias were going to seed as I had been deadheading them incorrectly. I thought all I needed to do was pull out the flower and it would re-flower. Oh, how wrong was I, I needed to be cutting off the whole of the flower head to stop them from going to seed. Going to seed means they slow and stop producing flowers as they believe they have completed their job. I could never understand why they did not look good all summer but other peoples did and now I know. Yesterday I spent all day deadheading. Including several trips to wash hands and snips. Petunias are sticky and when you are deadheading two
