Meal Plan Friday 1st October 2021

 It has been so long since I have written up the weekly meal plan. But I really missed doing it and am thrilled to be back.

Today is a cold, grey and wet day needing some comfort food for the next couple of days.

Friday - Scampi, Chips and Peas. Fish fingers for the boys.

Saturday - Lasanga for us all. M&S do a really nice family one. With salad and garlic bread.

Sunday - Cola Gammon with roast potatoes, carrots, broccoli 

Monday - Chicken and Spinach Alfredo. Without the spinach for the boys. I have found this recipe but going to see if I can make it a little simpler and easier to prepare.

Tuesday - Slow Cooker Beef Bourguignon I am going to try the boys on this.

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 Area cleared and ready for the trees 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.

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.

Viburnum Tinus for a border

As you are aware last year I posted about the garden fence being replaced and the fact we lost some privacy. We found part of the solution with the amazing LolliPop Trees Elaeagnus ebbingei.

We decided to visit Architectural Plants again, knowing what we needed was established plants. Our main problem was that we had no idea what plants would work. We did not want to loose the stunning appearance of the lollipop trees, they look so regal and I was concerned they would get lost in a massive shrub. The regal trees and the fence up close We asked for help as soon as we arrived, being organised we had to hand measurements and photos of the border and fence. She looked at them, listened to us and straight away came up with the most beautiful idea. Viburnum Tinus but in two different forms, one as a small lollipop
