Meal planning Monday – 9 June 2014

Good news and bad news from last week. The good news was that Team AXA won the Macmillan Cancer Support House of Lords v Commons tug of war. It was a lot harder than I had anticipated but the adrenaline rush was fantastic when we won (either that or the effect of the champagne – […]

Meal planning Monday – 26 May 2014

So, the kitchen is finished. I have bored you all to tears with my tales of woe whilst I was unable to use it due to renovations, but it’s back, I survived, and am looking forward to doing some cooking for the week later on today. But, next we move on to the bathroom: unfortunately […]

Meal planning Monday – 19 May 2014

Very, very, very much enjoying my new kitchen. Although I won’t have too many opportunities to cook in it this week. I am out on Monday and Wednesday to a new ‘gastronomic social hub’ – Jenius Social. It’s the brainchild of an old colleague – Jen, and I can’t wait to see what she has […]

A new job at the end of last year with a steep learning curve and new responsibilities, things to organise at home, and the usual pressures we […]

Meal planning Monday – 24 March 2014

I am out for dinner twice this week, which I am really looking forward to. Firstly tonight I am meeting up with some old friends. We all used to work together at least two jobs ago, and thanks to Facebook we’re all still in touch regularly, despite Charles now living in Sweden and Dan in […]

Meal planning Monday – 3 March 2014

It’s that time of week again for meal planning Monday, and this week is quite an easy one for me because Pancake Day falls on Tuesday. Whoopee! Pancakes are one of my favourite things to eat, and this year I am planning a ham and cheese concoction for my savoury buckwheat galette, and then the […]
