    Wow! I didn’t realise Julie Goodwin had a website with her recipes on it!!! Thanks!!! (I was given “our family table” cookbook for Mother’s Day) I’ve started to meal plan – not quite getting to the full seven days – but from Monday to Friday the meals are planned out! I’ve been thinking about doing a shepherds pie for awhile… thanks for reminding me to ‘plan it in’…ReplyCancel

  • Can anyone suggest a substitute for cocoa?ReplyCancel

  • Anoter cute idea was putting a spearmint leaf lolly onto a skewer, followed by a marshmallow, spread some butter icing on the end of marshmallow, dip into sprinkles. Cute edible marshmallow flowers in a vase :)ReplyCancel

    I’ve only just discovered your meal plans and I LOVE them. They are what real people can cook for real kids. I always used to do meal plans with exotic dishes then would get stressed about cooking it and it would always turn out hideous. I’ve only just recently discovered the power of doing a meal plan with ‘normal’ foods. So nice to know you do too and I’ll be popping back to check each week, your schnitzel is one I keep forgetting to put on my plans. You never know but one day I might get organised and be able to link up with you!ReplyCancel

  • Use caramel out if a tin!!ReplyCancel

    I’ve had that Apple Slice before and it’s amazing. Thanks for the recipe. Also a quick recipe when you need to take food to share, sounds crazy but works a treat and is always the first dish gone.

    1 bbq chicken, pulled apart into bite size pieces
    1 tin of tuna (a good one pls)
    1 jar of egg mayonnaise
    500g baby potatoes, boiled with the skin on (or potatoes cut into quarters)
    Handful of Snow peas (topped and tailed) or Sweet peas in pods
    anything else you might like to add
    Mix everything together, adding as much mayonnaise as you like, add salt and pepper, chill and enjoy.ReplyCancel
