Jar Amnesty Challenge : The Weekend Blog Hop...


This month Foodies100 and The English Provender Co. have come up with a fun recipe challenge. They have invited bloggers to come up with a tasty recipe. With a chance of winning one of ten £100.00 vouchers for Waitrose/John Lewis.

So today I came up with a tasty new idea to go with this delicious Sweet Tomato and Chilli Chutney. Adding a new twist on one of my family favourite, Chilli Con Carne recipes.


Everyone knows that chutney goes great with cheese. Does a cold Sweet Tomato and Chilli Chutney go together with a hot and spicy homemade Chilli Con Carne though? That is the question we had to answer with dinner this evening.

Smoothie On The Go...


From the moment I wake up on a school day it is go, go, go. Or should I say them moment I decide to jump out of bed.

Put heat on. Let dog out, feed dog. Wake kids up, feed them, make sure they have got dressed, had breakfast brushed their teeth and hair. Make their lunch boxes.

Sometimes all I really want to do is make a cup of tea and eat my breakfast. Not in the Winter though, it is too cold and dark to get up early and chill.


Yesterday I made this breakfast smoothie to drink whilst running around and it was yummy! You may like banana's on your Weetabix, this is banana's in your Weetabix smoothie.

The Laughing Cow Cheese And Chicken Wraps..


To help me kick-start my New Years healthier eating plan, The Laughing Cow Extra Light sent me some yummy 2% fat cheese triangles and some other healthy ingredients to help get me started.


We have been enjoying these yummy cheese triangles on crackers instead of bread for lunch, in salads as sides on our dinner and as a little extra for the children's lunch boxes. 

I have also added then into a chicken wrap in exchange for mayonnaise.

Naan Breads Pizza..


1 lunch idea I can always get the 2 younger children helping me to make and that is Naan bread pizzas. They are quick and easy to make and so tasty too! This is one fun after school snack that sometimes we make when dad is working late to keep us going till dinner. 


This recipe also inspired my old 2 who are at uni to make as a dinner too. They just add lots of cooked meat or tuna and different vegetables onto theirs. They also make them for friends and they love the idea so much they start making their own too.

Punpkin Bread...


This handsome, tasty loaf is particularly good served warm from the oven with cheese.

You can of course make your own pumpkin purée by cooking chunks of pumpkin with a little water in a covered pan until soft, and then puréeing it in a food processor or blender.
