Three Spice Pan fried White Fish

Three Spice Pan fried White Fish

Sorry fishy… namely the orange roughy that was consumed in my house not all that long ago, that on this very blog I publicly announced my family was eating. See even 3 months ago I was going along thinking this lovely white gleaming fillet was just perfect for little plates, not so much my wallet (didn’t … Continue reading

Mini Broccoli Quiche

Mini Broccoli Quiche

I hope you kids have had a great first full week back at school Freddie LOVED preschool. I think he was a rather disappointed that he only got to go for two days. He was so busy playing and having fun that he definitely didn’t eat enough lunch and was pretty low on energy when … Continue reading

Sweetcorn, banana and yoghurt!

Sweetcorn, banana and yoghurt!

Freddie’s three favourite foods are sweetcorn, banana and yoghurt and I’m pretty sure if I let him that is all he’d eat! In fact “nana” was one of his first words and I’m amazed he doesn’t take off with excitement when he sees a corn on the cob. Even on days when Freddie is off his food he’ll gobble down … Continue reading
