Miso Noodle Soup

I went to look up my miso soup recipe on the blog and was surprised to see that I didn’t have one posted! Perhaps it is because it is one of those meals that is not really cooking, but more just assembling. Regardless, I feel it needs to make an appearance simply as a reminder that this is a quick, easy, and delicious dinner that is especially comforting during these cold winter nights.  Continue Reading…

One-Pot Chili Pasta

Happy Wednesday! We are currently in the middle of our second week of half term (last week was one kid, and this week is the other) so things have been a bit crazy. The good news is that we have had warmer weather this week than we have had in ages! We’ve been skipping our jackets, wearing shoes without socks, and playing in the park. It has been brilliant!

Despite the warmer weather, we’re still not quite out of the winter woods and it is still nice to settle in to a cosy dinner in the evenings. This recipe is perfect for that!

The White Dinner

The White Dinner – by Kate Davies

We all know them: the Picky Eaters, kids who only eat white foods. I’ve often told my kids that I will never force-feed them anything weird or gross, so if I put it on the table the odds are good that the food is both edible and nutritious. Somehow, even when faced with such wisdom, I get complaints.

We are quite lucky, as our dinners can literally be quite colorful (see Lettuce Wraps). One evening I served a meal everyone loved, and after we tucked in we realized that I had inadvertently served every kid’s dream dinner: all white. Here it is, I hope your kids like it as much as mine do!

Meal Plan #17

Weekly meal planner number 17

Holy Week can be a bit crazy for church musicians. Thursday is a particularly busy day, so I will be preparing a casserole for the babysitter to pop in the oven. Hopefully there will be enough for both Jason and me to have leftovers when we get home! I’ll also finally be getting to that pea carbonara this week that I’ve been intending to re-try for ages. Fingers crossed I can get it to turn out better this time than last time (when it was FAR too creamy!).

PS: I would love to have your love over on my Facebook page. It would be so fun to turn it into a spot where we can all chat about recipes, ingredients, cooking for families, etc! You can join the group by clicking here.
