I don’t have to pack a lunch for L yet, he gets free school meals because he’s still little. So when it came to sending him off to Barracudas Activity Day Camps over Easter I was thrown!
He needed enough for a full day, it needed to be tasty, filling and ok out of the fridge. Two snacks, at least, plus lunch. I dropped him off at 9am and didn’t have to pick him up until 4.30pm. That’s a lot of time and a lot of food. Not even taking into account all the running around they would be doing.
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about my favourite gins. It’s been hard to narrow it down if I’m honest, but here we go.
An exciting new range of cakes from Everfresh Natural Foods really is something to shout about. Not only are the cakes created using a minimal number of high quality organic and natural ingredients, there are no preservatives*, stabilisers or flavourings in sight. These new cakes have been specially created with those on plant based diets in mind and incorporate the goodness of sprouted grains as well as using no added sugar, dairy or egg products.
When BritMums got in touch to see if anyone would like to share a quick and easy #MeatMatters Beef or Lamb based recipe that the family loves I just knew it would have to be Spaghetti and Meatballs, the kid loves it and it’s so quick and easy.
It also helps that he is obsessed with the Grinch movie at the moment and loves watching him eat a giant pile of meatballs at the start of the film, so I know I’m onto a winner when I serve it for dinner.
To celebrate their launch in WHSmith travel stores I’ve teamed up with Indie Bay for a very yummy competition. You could win a whole box of Indie Bay Pretzel Bites. Best yet, if you win you’ll get to choose which one of the delicious flavours you want your box to be.
Indie Bay are aimed at parents, supposedly to feed the snacks to their kids, however, I have purposefully misunderstood this and delved into the samples I was sent. L hardly got a look in! They are Yum.
It is no secret I love a good subscription box. Happiness delivered to your door and there are so many types to choose from now, so there is no shortage of surprise packages to enjoy. I was recently sent a subscription box to The Hot Choc Club from uOpen.com to try out.
