    Shepherds Pie Pots

    These are so stinking cute they are almost too good to eat, almost! And add into that, that mine almost look as good as the original picture and they tasted amazing, could they be just the perfect dinner? I held back judgement until today, because I wanted to see if they passed the freezer test. One of the best things about Shepherds pie (or strictly cottage pie as I use beef mince) is that the left overs are perfect for freezing so I always make a big one and freeze half in portion containers. But would these little cuties freeze and defrost well? Yes!!! The pastry held it’s shape, wasn’t…

    Keep calm? I’m a parent you know!

      Yes that’s what we’d all like our holidays to look like, but in reality? With kids? I don’t think so!!

    Kedgeree fit for dinner

    I’d been reading about the health benefits of turmeric and wanted to incorporate it into a dinner. Kedgeree seemed like a great choice as I had fish in the freezer, but wasn’t it a breakfast food? I quickly slapped those thoughts away, we don’t think like that in this house, if you want to eat food then eat it. We have done away with the conventions of certain foods for certain times of the day, Holly often has a fish finger sandwich for breakfast and I’ll have peanut butter and banana on toast if I want it for dinner. As long as it balances out over the day it’s all…
