A quick post for Fay

It's been baking hot over here the last few days so our little Gonk-Boy hasn't been wearing any of the lovely coats he's been given.

Today is cooler so he's had a bit of a fashion show!

This Jack wearing a denim jacket sent by Fay. I thought the rocking chair and floral throw would be a great backdrop for this mini cowboy (since he's still a bit young for cows n horses just yet).

He's being a real mummy's boy today - which is lovely! We went for a long walk round Williamson's Park yesterday with Jen and her boys which wore him out, and after having a bath with his dad last night he slept really well! 12 hours (less night feeds and a couple of nappy changes)! And he's still drowsy now, wanted nothing more than snuggle to his mummy and snooze!

Guess the house work will have to wait a day. What a shame!!

Recipe: Pigsty Pie

This is one that we made up, although we are far from the first or only people to make a pie using pork or pork mince and call it a Pigsty Pie. So let's just say that this is our version of it. It smells great and reminds me of stuffing at Christmas, making it feel much more "naughty" than it is! This serves four people and it a nice 9 points per serving. You will need these for the mash: 400g potatoes 400g sweet potatoes 4-5 good sized carrots Salt Pepper Nutmeg Simply chop the roots, boil in salted water until tender, and mash! Add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. The pie filling: 10 sprays low fat cooking spray (e.g. 1 cal) 1/2 lb lean pork mince 2 onions, finely chopped 3 apples, diced 1 leek, chopped 5-6 big mushrooms 2 tbs plain flour 1 tsp sage 1 tsp parsley Salt Pepper 1 vegetable stock cube 1/2 hot water 2 tsp English mustard Fry the onions in the cooking spray until they start to soften, add the mince. Once the meat starts to colour add the apple, leek and mush
