Operation Tom - Night 3

Impressed.... it's night 3 and he *seems* to have settled on the first try. He is being fairly compliant this eve, no fuss brushing his teeth (50/50 for a kick off) and even his face washing (90% chance of a screaming fit). He was asking for his "baby bed" as we passed the nursery room door for the bedroom, but I said no he was a big boy now. Kissed, cuddled, tucked in with toys, gloworm pressed, "night night, love you", shut the door...... and silence! So I made a run for the stairs :D

Dunno if he'll STAY down for the evening, and I'm certain he'll be up in the night at least once or twice, but I'll work on that bit later.

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
