Meal Plan 23rd - 29th January 2017 + The Eden Project

Meal Plan

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.

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.
