Hi there! I hope you’ve had a great week. After having a hard week with my toddler, I was relieved when my husband told me he’d quite like to take her to stay with his parents for a weekend. As I’m quite heavily pregnant now I’m not too keen on travelling, so we thought it was a perfect opportunity for me to have a lovely break on my own, and for my husband to spend some quality time with our daughter. I’ve only ever been away from her for 2 hours since she was born 19 months ago and I’m already missing her like crazy. I am really enjoying the quiet, just to be able to eat my lunch uninterrupted and have some ‘me’ time. So I’m off to get my long dark hair cut short and dyed. It’s nice to be able to do something for myself for a change.
I haven’t been doing as much meal preparation this last week as I normally like to do as my toddler has worn me out. I did manage to make this Eat To Live Bolognese which was absolutely gorgeous and stocked up my freezer very well for the next week. I’ve also been carrying on with my bread experiments. I made a very complex whole wheat bread and had awful pregnancy heart burn all night. I’ve come to the conclusion it was the commercial yeast that was the culprit. So it’s back to the drawing board to find a good recipe that doesn’t include yeast, and is pre-soaked overnight.

My Favourites from Last Week
I tend to make pretty much the same salad every day so it’s great to get some ideas for different ingredients.
I can’t resist roasted nuts and these look amazing!
I have never heard of roasted grapes but I am really going to have to give this a go now. Great instructional video too.
