Vegetable Ragout with Cheesy Bulgur

This Vegetable Ragout with Cheesy Bulgur was one of the most tastiest dishes I have tried. Both my husband and I had never really tried bulgur wheat before, so we were pleasantly surprised at the taste. You will often find Bulgur Wheat in our cupboard now as a staple because you can use if for so many things. I highly reccommend trying this recipe out and if you don't really like certain ingredients then adapt it to your tastes. It is one of the most expensive recipes I have tried from the Goustos cookbook, but it was worth every penny. You can make this recipe cheaper depending on the amount you buy and where you shop at.

Spring Cleaning

Spring has now arrived, can you believe it? 

There are flowers blooming, the sun is in the sky (well not today), and with the milder temperatures means we no longer require a coat. Now I don't know about you but this sounds perfect to get some spring cleaning done. Whether you get everything done in one day, spread it out over weeks or the month, it is nice to refresh your house and put some life back into it. 

Here are a few tips that help me with spring cleaning.

The first 4 meals this week are from Simply Cook. I have used them in the past and all the recipes I have had so far have been amazing. We also spent a little bit more this week because we treated ourselves to a bottle of gin. With the weather getting slightly better it is always nice to have a glass of gin and tonic to relax. 

Meal Plan:

Chicken Katsu Curry

BBQ Tandoori Chicken with Sweet Potato Wedges

Baked Pasta with Sausage and Kale

Spiced Butternut Squash Risotto
Butternut Squash Pasta

Baked Potatoes with Leftover Chilli

I Am Happy With My Body After Having Children

Before having children I was obsessed with my weight. Every day I would get on the bathroom scales to see whether I had lost anything. Silly I know. I used to think that losing weight and losing inches would make me feel better about my body, but it never did.

With both my pregnancies I put on a couple of stone, a normal amount I would say, and after giving birth to Mabel I lost it all within a couple of weeks, with Martha it hasn't all gone. I still carry an extra few pounds here and there. There is no part of my body that is the same as what it was, and it will never be again.

Pampers Baby-Dry Nappy Pants

There are many choices when it comes to what nappies you use for your baby or toddler. Some brands you might like better than others, whether it is because you have had bad experiences with leakage or the fit, or because of pricing.

When your little ones start to wriggle, crawl or walk, changing their nappies regardless of what ones you are using can get a little bit awkward and messy. The simplest of tasks like putting on the nappy becomes impossible, as your baby or toddler rolls over and then off they go. It has now turned into a game of chase.
