The sun was shining this morning so we decided to head to our local fruit farm. We’ve never taken Harry before and I haven’t been since I was a young girl so I was really excited to take him.
We checked the Facebook page before we set off and knew that we weren’t going to be able to get any strawberries as all the ripe ones had been picked so we went hunting for raspberries and gooseberries instead!
Harry was excited the second we got out of the car and didn’t waste any time in rushing towards the fruit plants. He soon got the hang of picking the red raspberries and even put them in the bucket (whilst eating a few along the way of course.)
We found loads of raspberries and gooseberries and sat to enjoy a few raspberries before we set off home. I’m not sure what we’re going to do with the gooseberries yet but Alistair has plans to make jam and I think I will use it to make some tarts.
I’ve gone back to basics this week and started using my bullet journal again to meal plan. I find it helps me to stay organised and also gives me time to sit down and have some me time whilst doing something productive.
I didn’t have long today so I stuck to a really simple layout. It’s not decorative or fancy but it did the job and I feel better for having a plan in place for the week ahead.
- Pitta pockets with houmous, olives and salad
- Shepherds Pie
- Beans on toast
- Tuna steak with vegetable cous cous and salad
- Cheese and crackers
- Spaghetti and homemade meatballs
- Avocado and tomato pasta
- Pizza (Tortilla pizza for Harry, frozen pizza for us!)
- Chilli and homemade wedges
- Cooked breakfast brunch (Eggs, toast, sausage, tomato, mushrooms)
- Jacket potato with cheese and beans
What are you eating next week?
Do you meal plan?
I’d love to hear how you stay organised whilst feeding your family!
