Fruity Easter nests

As part of the weaning process with froggy I'm trying to income him in as much of the cooking as possible. 

Must of the time that means he goes in the sling whilst I cook. But this week I decided to go the whole hog and make easter nests. 

We had his aunt and uncle (1 and 7) visiting, so I gave them each a tub of cornflakes. 

Froggy loved playing with his tub of cornflakes. 

I
I melted the mix on the hob (butter, chocolate,  sugar) then poured into the tubs for each child to stir their own mix. As you can see it isn't a very thick mix it only takes a small amount to hold the nests firm. 


Next instead of mini eggs I copied some fruit to top the Nests. 



We put uncle bear in charge of the decoration

Although both froggy and Bella were desperate to get stuck in - note the Chocolate mix war paint on the side of his head!

  1. Lucas says - Now, everyone would say that I would be 'rude' about this post but as fruit is one of my favourite foods, I LOVE this post so much. These look so yummy and it's soooooo cool to have such a young member of the GL Gang. High-5's lil' dude ;)

Little Bloom- Cloth Nappy reviews

If you are a newbie in cloth its hard to know what to buy. I've been using  Cloth Nappies  for 16 months with my first born, and am preparing to have two in cloth when my daughter arrives in May. You could say I'm somewhat of cloth nappy pro. I've moved on from my start up stash, and invest in nappies that will see us through til froggy potty trains, and ideally ones his baby sister can use afterwards too! Pocket nappies are great for this purpose and this week I'm reviewing the little bloom nappies You can grab little bloom nappies on  amazon  from as little as £2.89 delivered. So they are a cheap option but are they cheerful enough to do the job?

Starting our kitchen garden

Growing our own food has been an ambition of my husband and I. We both really value locally sourced produce,  and enjoy spending time outdoors.  In our first home together (a basement flat in the city centre) we planted anything and everything we could in planters on the windowsill.   I had green beans trailing up the bars of our windows. They bolted and twirled up the bars but never got enough light  to produce anything edible. Then we moved into our first pub which had masses of outdoor space, unfortunately,  all car park and no dirt. We managed to sustain some hanging baskets with strawberries and a few herb planters, but that was about it.  Now we are in our new home.  A lovely country pub in the new forest, whiich offers a private garden just for our little family.  We moved here when I was 8 months pregnants and ever since, I've been desperate to make the most of it.  Since the new year we've been planning what to do with this neglected space.  I found this

Lovely leftovers- healthy peri-peri turkey

I hope all of my lovely blog readers had a fabulous Christmas. We were pretty hectic with 10 for lunch on the big day, and 20 eating on Christmas night. We were kindly given our turkey this year by our local farm shop, we run with weekly meat draw at our pub for them. It was a little larger than I would have ordered otherwise. I got them to remove and bone the legs, so I could stuff them and roast them as mini joints. They were really yummy, but we had a lot of meat left over. I used up my turkey and veggie (carrots, parsnips, sprouts) left overs to make this yummy peri-peri one pot dish. Which is yummy but nice and light after the Christmas carb fest. Made in the slow cooker in just over an hour, it's a great meal to chuck on before a walk in this lovely wintery weather we are having. Last night I simply chopped up the left overs into chunks and sprinkled with peri-peri seasoning. Then this morning I put a small handful of pasta in my slow cooker with a third of a pint of wa
