Sunday Roast!

So I'm getting this new years resolution off to a good start. Yesterday I bought a shoulder of pork to roast today for the "Sunday Roast"...

And it was LOVELY! I am really getting the hang of having a proper working oven again. The pork was just cooked right, not pink, not tough. The crackling was crisp and yummy. I did baby carrots, broc & coli, gravy and roast tatties. As it turns out it was only the spuds that weren't perfect... they just weren't crispy enough. They could have done with another 5 - 10 mins under a high heat to crisp them off... but they tasted fab so I'm happy enough with that for this week.

It seems that roasting meat really is the way forward with Jack! He devowered his roast pork in much the same way as he did his roast chicken on New Years Eve. And he even had some crackling. Me and Mark felt strangely proud as we heard him crunching away on it (first proper work out his grinding and chewing teeth have ever had). It must have been a good meal because he even ate his coli & broc which he normally just crumbles up and chucks on the floor.

Question is now.... next week. Lamb or Beef???

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 one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
