Hi Folks, sorry I haven't posted for the last week, just been busy and trying to get back into the routine of work and such. Had a good weekend, took mum out shopping and to the bank Saturday, and we popped into a couple of charity shops. I picked up a nice fleece for £3 mum paid £2, and a nice t-shirt for Mr Pixie for a £1. We had a look around the market and I got a nice chicken for dinner Saturday, and the cockle man was there so I had to have a tub of cockles they are my favourite treat. :o)
Sunday we went for a lovely walk to the Forest of Bere with Woody, and hubbys friend and his springer came too. We met lots of other springer's in the woods, its amazing how different they all look. Later that day I finally got the lemon curd and Seville orange marmalade made that I've been wanting to do for ages. Got 6 jars of lemon curd done and 13 jars of marmalade, took bloomin ages, didn't finish until 10.00pm.
I've also been trying to be more organised with the shopping and plan our dinners for the week so we don't waste so much food and save money. I think we ate pretty well last week, Monday we had Lasagna for lunch and boiled eggs and soldiers for tea, we had the leftover lasagna for tea Tuesday, beef stew and dumplings Wednesday, corned beef hash on Thursday and finished it off Friday, roast chicken dinner Saturday and cauliflower and macaroni cheese Sunday. I also made a big batch of watercress soup up yesterday which is now in the freezer for whenever we need a quick and tasty meal. My thrifty plans will continue this week so watch this space.
Below are some pics of our lovely walk in the forest on Sunday.
