The kids and I had a lovely day at the Eden Project yesterday making the most of the locals go free weekend. Lowen and Rory really enjoyed the Wow Weekend Space exhibition and spent time making and launching rockets in the Mediterranean Biome, watching Professor Johnson of the Squashbox Theatre Company taking us on a journey to the edges of space and time (very funny)... and they even had a go on DIY hoverboards in the Core building. It was a really cold day so we were glad to be able to warm up in the Rainforest Biome and I was pleased to stock up on my favourite Pukka Teas too.
Not so successful was finding something to eat. We really wanted to sample the Med Kitchen Restaurant but having turned up at 12:20 were told there was at least a 30 minute wait for a table. The kids couldn't wait that long so we made our way back up to the visitor centre and had a quick snack there before going home. A real shame but next time I'll make sure we're there at 12 sharp when it opens!
I've got a backlog of recipes to write up for the blog so this weeks plan is nice and simple so I can concentrate on blog stuff! The Roast Squash Mac n Cheese and the Prawn Curry are all made and stashed away in the fridge ready to be reheated. Prepping at least some of the weeks meals ahead of time makes such a big difference to mealtimes.
