#MeatMatters Quick and Easy Dinner

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.

My #FloraLunchBox Challenge

How do you get on packing lunches? I struggle. It’s not that I can’t pack a box, of course I can. It’s just getting in some variety and a good level of nutrients that gets to me. So I was intrigued about the #FloraLunchBox Challenge with BritMums.

I pack lunches for my husband at work, myself on days I work and for L if we are going on a day out somewhere. Thankfully nursery take care of him food wise when he is there and feed him amazing food. I’ve threatened to join them for lunch on more than one occasion.

Because when I pack lunch everybody tends to get the same thing. Every. Single. Time.

Locally Sourced Meals

Today is the first day of The East of England Co-op‘s sourced locally fortnight. I have always loved how the EoE Co-op has supported our local producers and this fortnight celebration highlighting what you can buy from local producers is an amazing way to discover new foods, last year I found Hadleigh Maid and I’m now addicted to their Hot Chocolate.
