Things to do in Burnley for kids | | Places to go with children | Fun cheap family activities

6 weeks with no nursery or school... Kids gonna drive me nuts!

We're having a week at my mums, a week with my in-laws, and a 3rd week needs planning. These are Mark's days off (he works week on week off remember), the weeks he's working we're staying local.

I'm planning now for places to go and things to do - for both rainy and sunny days - and this website its going to be very helpful! Can't wait to take the kids to some of the parks and indoor play areas! First off, a week in my home town of Burnley :S

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
