I’ll be the first to admit that I never seem to have enough time – I find myself running to or from work, doing the Cubs run, or the Scouts run, dropping off at life-guarding, doing the shopping, stacking and unstacking the dishwasher, making packed lunches, cleaning, cooking tea, eating tea, planning and assessing for school…and at some point in all of that actually sitting down for a moment or two to catch my breath! Life never seems to stop. So I’ve adopted a few little ‘life hacks’ to try and make things a little simpler!
We love Easter. With two bank holidays making the weekend a long one, it’s such a great time to get the family together and spend some time relaxing. When the spring weather is kind it’s lovely to be out and about enjoying the fresh air but, with the usual British weather never too far away, it’s always handy to have an indoor back up plan and, for us, that’s where our Easter family films come in REALLY handy! And with the launch of the new Panasonic 4K TV, you could even be in the cinema in the comfort of your front room!
So what Easter films make our list? Well here’s our family’s top 3…
You may have noticed things have been a little quiet at ‘What me and the boys say’ towers recently. Not that I’ve wanted to be quiet…but I’ve had a few technical issues with the blog which have meant that it sadly had to be switched off until we could locate the source of the problem!
I have my fingers (and toes) crossed that we’ve now fixed everything (though it took a LOT longer than I hoped) and normal service will be resuming
So if you thought you’d escaped me…I’m sorry to say I’m back!!!
Look out for a new post soon…
We were really excited at ‘What me and the Boys say HQ’ when we were asked if we’d like to be part of a creative campaign to create our ULTIMATE burger for National Burger Day. It was reported recently that Prince William’s favourite snack is a Welsh Lamb burger topped with Snowdonia Cheese, bacon and a fried egg…and seeing as our challenge was to use Welsh Lamb as the main ingredient, it seemed only right that I put my creative mind to the task of creating a Welsh Burger…so I did just that!
I have received product from Oreo for this post. It is an entry to the Foodies100 Wonderfilled recipe challenge sponsored by Oreo, which marks the launch of two exciting new flavours: Peanut Butter and Golden. The delicious new flavours are available in all major supermarkets at an RRP of £1.08. To find out more, visit www.facebook.com/oreo
I LOVE getting creative in the kitchen, so when I was offered the opportunity to take part in the Oreo Wonderfilled Recipe Challenge I just COULD NOT resist! And as the challenge was to come up with a NEW wonderfilled recipe using one or both of the new flavours of Oreo, I knew I would have to get creative in the kitchen too!
After putting my serious thinking cap on, I came up with my idea…
So please may I present my Peanut Butter Oreo and Raspberry Ice-Cream Cake with Golden Oreo Snowmen…and here’s how to make it:
