Week in Dinners – First of 2017

I'm not great at meal planning, or certainly not for the whole week, and I find when I do life throws curveballs. That's why rather than sharing my meal plan at the start of the week (Like Life on Hushabye Farm's fantastic Meal Planning Monday series) I share after the fact. My dinners rarely go … Continue reading Week in Dinners – First of 2017

Quick and Easy Dinner: Pasta All’ Amatriciana

Mincemeat and Custard Parcels 

I love pastry. I've loved custard even longer. Mince pies took a while to grow on me, but I'm a fan for about a decade. Add the three together in the easiest Christmas dessert ever and you've got a winner.

A Week in Dinners – November 2016

Week in Dinners is sort of the opposite of Meal Planning. You see, I've never been great at planning in advance for dinners,  as I either change my mind or I get delayed in work or traffic and I change what I had planned as time is too short, or my plans were over ambitious. … Continue reading A Week in Dinners – November 2016
