Pickled Walnut, Potato & Thyme Frittata – Recipe

When it comes to Christmas flavours Pickled Walnuts are a real classic, but other than enjoying them with cheese an biscuits what can you do with them? They’re actually rather versatile and I love the mix of flavours in this Pickled Walnut, Potato and Thyme Frittata.

It’s a lovely light meal and great for using up any leftover potatoes from the roast. Warm, nutty, festive and perfectly satisfying it’s the perfect meal to enjoy on Boxing Day after all the excesses of Christmas.

A Very Grown Up Rocky Road – Recipe

I don’t often create recipes for my blog, I love cooking and I’m very crafty but I’m just not creative that way. I am, however, very good at finding ways (excuses) to combine my love of chocolate with a good dose of booze and my favourite way to do that is with my Very Grown Up Rocky Road.

It’s such a simple concept, quick and easy to make, but it’s utterly delicious and a really indulgent treat that is strictly for grown ups.

#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.
