It has been a productive day

However on the cooking side it is going well so far. I have dedicated Monday make ahead day, in the hope that as we rush through the week I have chance to catch up with everything else. Especially the ironing. I never set out with the intention of setting up a blog…or trying to publish a book. I just got tired of spending a fortune and a lot of mental energy figuring out how best to feed usall, and feed us well. You have probably noticed by now my style of cooking isn’t calorie counted or obsessed with containing the popular 5 a day. I just do my best and try to educate my children about eating well. Everything in moderation. including moderation! I don’t know who originally said that. but I like it 🙂 Today I have cooked a turkey joint in the slow cooker, which will be turned into pies, curry and future sandwich fillings when it’s cooled. I have made my kids no chilli chilli and frozen 4 containers for the next month, we will eat it with jacket potatoes one week, cheese and chips the next. There are now mini cheese pies in the freezer which will be reheated and served with salad, and I’ve just put a pork in cider on to bubble away, so one night I will just have to cook rice and veggies in the steamer. It might be tomorrow before I get round to it, but I just need to make a chocolate brownie cake and shortbread whirls and that will be this weeks treats sorted. Dinner tonight will simply be hotdogs, with homemade wedges and carrot sticks……Wow. I think I might deserve a glass of wine after all that. I have been trying to upload some recipes onto my blog but haven’t yet figured it out….cooking I can do…computers I cannot, but I will keep trying. or feel free to email me at thesideplate@mail.com to register an interest for the book when it comes out. It won’t be glam, but it will be cheap and full of tasty recipes. Happy cooking and thanks for reading Sky @ thesideplate.com
