Six Months Old Today!

It's unbelievable but Marianna is six months old today - she's changed our lives so completely we can't even imagine life without her now. Her little personality is really starting to shine through, and this week she's made the move to baby food. So grown up already!

This pic was actually taken yesterday, but it's my new favourite.

ETA: It's New Year's Eve 2015 and Marianna is going to be one tomorrow! I still love this photo though, I had it made into  magnet for the fridge. :)

    1. Thank you! It's so great to see their faces as they try out new flavours :)

    1. Thank you! Her dad wasn't at all sure at first but I told him, I've carried her around for nine months, I'm choosing her name, lol. She had a great time - and scraped all the icing off her bit of cake, sucked on it, then smeared it into the settee... Ah, the life of a baby. :)

British Food

A/N: On a previous blog wrote a whole series of posts on British life, explained for American fiction writers. This week I'm reposting the entry explaining British cuisine... Britain is world renowned for its stodgy, uninspiring cuisine. (Which should explain the deep suspicion Britons have of most foreign cuisine, unless it's been suitably adapted for the British palette.) BBC sitcom Goodness Gracious Me explains it best via the 'going for an English' sketch - a play on the popular British past time of 'going for an Indian (i.e. curry)'. " What's the blandest thing on the menu? " asks one character, later encouraging another, " Just have something a little bland, huh? Waiter, what have you got that is not totally tasteless? " Because, the truth is that traditional British fare is far from a taste sensation for those who haven't been raised on the stuff. Still, read on, and you can judge for yourself...

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
