With autumn in full swing now, and the nights drawing in dark thanks to the clocks going back this weekend, it is definitely slow cooker/crockpot time and there is nothing better than leaving something cooking away while you go about your daily routine, and then have it ready to eat when it is meal time. One way of saving time, is to cook a Slow Cooker Butternut Squash in your crock pot and then use it in meal for your family.
Following on from my recipe for Sugar Free Oaty Apple Breakfast Muffins the other week, I am still on my quest to make some not only new, not only tasty but healthier snack options for my two boys. Now that I have more time on my hands now that they are both at school (*sniff sniff*), it allows me more time to get in the kitchen and experiment with some ideas that I have had for a while, but not had the opportunity to try out.
With summer upon us and the weather having a warmer and sunnier feel to it now, it is the perfect excuse to indulge in some light lunches and evening meals that look as bright and cheery as the weather outside. Well, unless it is raining of course as it is now as I write this, but still, a plate of tasty and colourful food is guaranteed to cheer me up and remember that the sun will return and it is a British summer!!
