Leek and Potato Soup

Leek and Potato Soup

I’ve mentioned my love of soup before. It’s great. Especially when it’s cold. I also love potato. So potato soup is a definite win. We went to Elsecar Heritage centre today. It was absolutely freezing. This probably isn’t true. I’m usually cold, so I was […]

Easy Homemade Pitta Breads

Easy Homemade Pitta Breads

I love bread. I’d happily eat it with every meal. However, I do get a bit bored of both making, and eating the same white loaf, all the time. Pitta breads make a nice change. I like them just in the normal sandwich bread replacement […]

Ideal Housework Jobs for Six-Year-Olds

Ideal Housework Jobs for Six-Year-Olds

I think it’s important for children, and in some cases, husbands (mine is very good, as I’m sure are many others!) to help out with housework. It is after all, their house. The Boy has always been pretty good at it. He gets pocket money, […]
