Don’t get me wrong I love being a mum more than anything, and I love being a Vet, but some days, just one day I would like a proper day off! Is that too much to ask?
I have potty trained two toddlers (one very recently), and believe me I am no expert in this field. In fact I sometimes think should I have done it differently? Been more pro-active and done it earlier? Or did I leave it late because a nappy is more convenient. So this post is about my various musings of potty training toddlers.
This is an old favourite recipe of mine, and I often use it as a starter when we have people round for dinner. Soup as a starter is easy as can be prepared in advance and just warmed through as guests arrive. This recipe is low in fat and it can also be frozen too. Its a bit of a faff skinning the peppers, but well worth it.
I started thinking the other day on how my life has changed since having kiddies. Obviously it goes without saying that there are a million positives about having kids, but I started thinking about the things I do now that I would never have dreamt of doing before!
Baking cookies makes your house smell gorgeous! This is a really simple recipe that is great to do with the kids, or you can use it to make ‘cookies in a jar’ gifts for birthdays or other special occasions.
If you ask me what I think of my tummy, I will tell you that I hate it. But that’s not the full story…..
I love making soup in the slow cooker. This is one of my family favourites, and I often make it on a Sunday. I start first thing on a Sunday morning (the oven is generally on cooking breakfast!), and get the soup going whilst we take the kids out for the morning. Nothing beats going out to the park or for a walk on a mild winter’s or autumnal day and returning home to a warm soup for lunch.
Kitchen Organisation #1
Since moving into our house in October 2012, we have been renovating and extending and have only had a ‘make-do’ kitchen in one form or another. We finished installing our kitchen just before Christmas 2015, and I love it!
