Fish pie with leeks

In our home, we LOVE a real hearty meal. Bacon mac and cheese pasta bake, chicken, spinach & filo pie and bolognese pasta bake are all hits with my family! Anything with lots of fillings, a rich sauce and cheese on the top hits that sweet spot for family mealtimes. This fish pie with leeks is a real Winter warmer, and a favourite of my daughters too. It is delicious served with butter potatoes, roasted vegetables or even just alone with a chunk of bread!

The Meal Planning Linky Week #117 Meal Plan

Happy Friday, I hope your week has been well and you and your family are keeping well. I’m trying to be prepared in advance, but I haven’t stockpiled, so I’m hoping that I can get all of the ingredients that I need for my meals!

Meal planning helps us to have low food waste which is really important to me. I feel really sad if we have to throw something in the bin, thinking of both the environmental impact and the fact that other people struggle to afford food. I am always trying to take steps to make sure we are avoiding overspending on groceries.

Enjoying an Easter Hunt with Baby Shark (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted the featured items in exchange for coverage. We moved house late last year and for the first time, we have a garden of our own. I’m so excited for all of the nice plans we have this Spring/Summer, even if we are now stuck at home for the foreseeable without access to workmen for any of the bigger jobs our garden needs! I feel super privileged to have outside space, after so many years of living in a flat on the 3rd floor. Our lovely Daisy is 4 now and wants to spend more time outside by the day. This year, for Easter, we’re going to be enjoying a little Easter Hunt in our garden thanks, in part, to some fun Baby Shark toys we’ve been sent! Available from Smyths and Argos.

Living Arrows 12/52 [2020]

Hello! A new week is here and I’m, understandably, anxious for what the week ahead brings. Daisy will be staying home from Nursery and we will be making the most of the time together. And I’ll be juggling work of course where that comes up! Anyway, on Saturday Daisy turned 4! Here is our Living Arrows 12/52 post.

Daisy turned 4!
It was just the 3 of us at home, no party this year, but Daisy had a great day anyway – as you can see from the state of her PJ top!

Because of the Coronavirus, we had to cancel Daisy’s Birthday party. We had made our decision before the isolation guidelines came around because we want to keep our family, and others, as safe as possible. I think it is really important for people to stay home if they can.
