These tortilla bowls filled with Smokey Barbecue Pulled Beef Chilli featuring Newman’s Own Original Sticky BBQ Sauce are perfect for a mid-week family meal that is fun to eat, tasty and nutritious too.
During the week, my time is precious as it seems that there is always something happening, always a job to do and I find that I’m always in a rush! With the kids at school, a part time job, my PTA volunteering, my blog, trying to keep on top of the household chores, after school clubs, homework and a puppy to contend with, it can be hard to fit everything in and prepare a meal for the family that is nutritious and homemade. However, where possible I do like to make meals from scratch and one way I find I can achieve this is to use my slow cooker, which allows me to get on with life while it cooks food for me, albeit with a little preparation at the start.
This Sausage and Baked Bean Curry is a great way of feeding your family on a budget,using mostly stored cupboard ingredients it is packed full of flavour and can even be made while camping!
The other weekend we decided to go away for a night in our new camper van, and we also wanted to try out our new Cadac (which is a multipurpose barbecue and grilling system), which meant I needed to come up with a recipe which would be easy to cook and not take too long.
These savoury Sausage Pizza Roll Pinwheels are perfect for taking on picnics, serving at parties or adding to lunch boxes.
I love going on a picnic. I think this is because it is something I did a lot growing up with my family. It was a way of spending some quality time together with my parents and grandparents, and it always involved a walk in the woods or some park beforehand, to help us work up an appetite. My Mum always packed enough food so that we would never be left feeling hungry!
For fans of the LEGO Batman Movie, here are some simple party food ideas to make for your children that can be made easily and quickly.
My boys were big fans of the LEGO movie that came out a couple of years ago. One of their favourite characters from that film was Batman. Therefore, it was no surprise that the Lego super hero was given his own film: The Lego Batman Movie, which is now released as a digital download from today.
These tasty little Gluten and Sugar Free Bircher Muesli Cookies are very easy to make and perfect lunch box or after school snacks for your children (or yourself as an elevenses treat!)
