Apples!

I was fortunate enough not to have to work the whole of today after all. The combination of my (hopefully) new Saturday guy doing a sound job, and a sick cleaner needing to get a lift home, meant I was home myself by1pm! Yay!

Jack had already had his lunch, but was facinated by me eating mine, which was only a tuna pasta pot and an apple. Nothing he has never seen before.

He really REALLY wanted my apple. I was going to share it with him once I finished my tuna, but he wanted it NOW so Yorkie went to fetch him one of his own.

He played with it for a while, not sure of what to do. He had eaten an apple by himself - a couple of small bites - once, but that was ages ago, and he seemed to have forgotten what to do. So Daddy took a bite out to get him started. Jack took his apple back, looked at the bite taken out, looked at me taking bites out of mine, and the penny dropped.

For the next hour and 45 mins he has been chewing on this apple (with breaks while he played with something else) and has now chewed it right down to the pips!

I think it's safe to say that we don't need to bother peeling and chopping up his apples for him anymore!

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on
