Can you tell what it is yet?

 We've been busy! But it's no where near finished yet....

Breakfast


So far we have our banana, but it still needs painting. We made it from tin foil scrunched into a banana shape, and then covered in payer of papier mache.

We've also made a start on our bowl of cereal by covering a foil pie tin in papier mache then part filling it with cotton wool. We're going to paint that and then top it with cereal and fake milk (glue and paint).

Lunch


We've also started our felt sandwich with two slices of bread made out of felt stuffed with cotton wool. We're going to add felt ham slices, felt lettuces leaves and cotton wool stuffed tomato slices. I found some Velcro dots in my sewing box what we can add to help keep it all together.

Jack's isn't too hot on sewing. He gave it a try but it was too fiddly for him. He has loved stuffing the shapes though!

We're also going to add a carton of juice, and apple and some cheese, but we haven't started them yet.

Dinner


We've not started the chicken or pasta yet but I think we'll probably use the same idea, paper covered foil chicken drumstick shape, and pasta in red paint & glue mix.

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on
