Jack's 5th Birthday

Half a decade!! How??

Aww, and he's so grown up so much of the time too. He's had a good birthday. First time he's been at school for one, and a Thursday too so we had Luke over in the morning before school. Trying to keep him calm and willing to actually GO to school was our primary goal :D

He got to open 3 presents before school, one from Mummy & Daddy, and one from each of his brothers. We explained he could have the rest after school when he had time to play with them. He was ok with that too! Very grown up!

After school we went for his birthday tea to Pizza Hut, then home for presents and cake. He loved his presents (mostly Skylanders related) and scoffed his cake before finally burning out half an hour after his normal bedtime.

He has his big party on Saturday, and Grandma is bringing his bike up too (weather permitting, it's supposed to SNOW!)

Hope he remembers his 5th birthday. Hope it's a good memory.

Love you Big Lad! Xxxx

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
