Beaver Sleep Over

I've been one kiddy down this weekend as Jack has been at a Sleep Over at the Scout Hut. He was a bit late getting there on Saturday because his swimming lessons clash with the camps (I don't mind him missing the swimming for the camps away, but for local sleep overs I try to get him to both) and was teased by one of the leaders for arriving just as the last tent had been put up! But we'd brought a TON of home baked cakes so he was quickly forgiven!

He seems to have had an awesome time though, and come out with a load more badges. They are on a healthy living theme at the moment so as well as new Nights Away and Hikes Away badges, he also has one for Healthy Eating and Healthy Activities (we'd sent fresh veg as well as cakes).

Jack was even given a special award at the end of camp for making the most effort at being good so I was super proud of him for that.

He's brought home a mini terrarium and some alfalfa seeds for him to grow and eat. Along with the bean (and my own unruly mint plant) my kitchen is starting to look like a mini jungle!

Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too. 

 You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook

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
