Happy Mount Park

Todays pics >>clicky<<

Today is the first day in AGES that I've felt well enough AND the weather has been good enough to take the boys out properly.... So we went to Happy Mount Park for the morning.

It's still out of season really so the Playland (cars n bikes bit) and the Splash Park are still closed, but the smaller playground, Adventure Land, and Pirates In The Park are still open... so we hit them all!

The kids had a great time and were shattered at the end. I stopped off at McDonalds on the way home but they were sound asleep so I picked up a drive thru happy meal each for them and they had them at home (cold, yuk) after a well earned nap.

They are having some quiet play time on the Wii now while I have a rest and think about what to do for tea. Bliss......

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
