Where does the time go?

Apologies for the radio silence on here! I really don't know where the time goes ... well, I do have a pretty good idea ... she is now 6 months old and an absolute darling!

I have so many blog posts drafted in my head! I'm off up North for the whole of next week to stay with my inlaws - but once I am back home normalish blogging service will be resumed!

Coming soon to a computer screen near you ...

Jamie's 30 Minute Meals

At 5.30pm, me and Baby Plum settle down in front of the TV to watch Jamie's 30 Minute Meals!

My parents bought me the cookbook which accompanies the series for Christmas and I finally got around to trying out one of the meals.

There are a lot of non-believers out there! But as Jamie explains in his book and on the TV - you need to get your into your 30 minute mind set!

Do you have all your ingredients ready?

Have you got your food processor with the coarse chopper ready? Kettle boiled? Knives and chopping board?

Pans ready?

30 minutes (and 4 seconds!) later ... Spagetti Alla Puttanesca (with quorn instead of fish), crunchy salad, garlic bread and silky chocolate ganache. Delicious!

(Apologies for the photo - I really should have unwrapped the garlic bread a bit better before taking the pic!)
