Meal Plan 28th November - 4th December 2016

Meal Plan


It's been a busy busy week here (when don't I say that?!) which culminated with a lovely weekend away exploring the most westerly part of the UK around Lands End. Despite the fact both hubby and I have lived in Cornwall all our lives, rather shockingly we've never been. That's been put right now and we got the obligatory photo to prove it (and paid £10 for the privilege..grrr!!). We then had a very nice overnight stay in Loggans Moor Premier Inn last night before attending the Brewers Fayre Breakfast with Santa event this morning. The kids had a great time and loved meeting Santa ...all apart form Heidi who balled her eyes out and refused to sit on his lap. Can't win em all Santa!

Breakfast with Santa


This week was also the week I decided it was time to go back over my oldest blog posts (dating way back to 2008) and re-take the photo's for the recipes. My photography skills, although still far from perfect are A LOT better these days and I think I can make the recipes look a little bit more appetising. My daughter kindly commented the other night that one recipe on the blog (which shall remain nameless), looked like a pile of cat sick. Her comment has spurred me into action. That's our meal plan's sorted for the next 6 months then (and probably beyond)! It' going to be a big job.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
