Smashing day

Jack has his school trip to see Treasure Island at the theater today and he loved it. He even came away with some pirate treasure (a choc coin). Meanwhile, I took Tom (and Georgie) to the nursery that Tom will be starting in the New Year for one of his settling-in sessions. It went really well. He's already made friends with a lovely little boy (the kind of kid I would choose for him if I could) and seems perfectly happy there.

I also took T & G shopping and out for lunch. They behaved perfectly, G had his first ever sandwich, and strangers were going gooey over T cuddling G and says "I love you soooo much Georgie!"

And when we went to collect J the school photos were (finally) ready! Chuffed to bits! Hopefully, with pizza for tea, the good feelings will continue to the boys bedtime and beyond!

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
