How to make perfect chips in the airfryer – my airfryer fries recipe

My husband and I are always working on wasting less money these days. We have a big mission to buy a house in the next 18 months and want to put down a 50% deposit. This is no small amount as we live in the South East. We have been working to save money on takeaways and one of the ways we’ve been doing so is by eating fewer takeaways. I decided to make airfryer chips recently, to accompany a slow cooker kebab recipe that I’ll be writing about soon. We’ve had these a few times now and I’ve really perfected the recipe. If you want to know how to cook chips/fries in an air fryer then I’ve got you covered with this post! Cooking chips or fries in air fryer is really easy and takes just minutes to get prepared!

Christmas gifts for a new baby (AD)

AD. We were gifted the items within this gift guide in exchange for coverage. Babies come in waves in our family. We can go several years without there being a new arrival, despite having 7 surviving siblings between us, and now something different but exciting is happening! My NIECE is having a baby. Wow – I feel old! I can remember sitting next to her, at 7 years old, bringing her home from the hospital when she was 2 days old. It was snowing outside and it is one of my clearest memories of my childhood. Anyway, fast forward 24 years (almost) and my niece is having a baby of her own! I’m SO excited and so this year I wanted to host a post filled with Christmas gifts for a new baby. It has been a few years since I had my own baby, as Daisy is 3, and these are some of the items I will be gifting my niece ready for her own baby to be born.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #97 Meal Plan

Happy Friday! This week we’re not going to be meal planning as such, as next week we will be enjoying a nice family holiday for most of the week. Every week I share with you my meal plan for the coming week (except this week of course!) and provide a post for other bloggers to link up (see below). I love seeing what everyone is linking up meal plan wise, cooking each week and also getting inspiration for my own meal plan. I hope that this will help people to find lots of inspiration, delicious recipes and maybe read some helpful blog posts about meal planning and money-saving. Don’t forget to check out my post to help you avoid overspending on your groceries.

Review: Schleich Bayala Glittering Moon Unicorns (AD – Gifted)

We received the items featured in this post in exchange for coverage. Daisy is 3 and as such, she is a big fan of small world toys. Anything that can combine real life with fantasy is a winner for Daisy. Being able to set her up a play area in her room is a great way to occupy her for up to 30 minutes at a time while I have a shower or complete jobs at home. We’ve already got a few Schleich toys, that Daisy loves, and now we’ve been sent the star pegasus, moon unicorn stallion and shooting star unicorn to test out. As we have recently moved house, and have more room for toys, this was perfect timing. Especially as I need to keep Daisy occupied for all the jobs that we need to do around our new house!
