Day Two....

so today is day two of Term 1 School holidays ( and a week off work for me) and boy, my sons are testing my patience....ive been trying to keep them entertained all day otherwise its just crazy chaos - is it like this at your house or just mine??? fighting over toys, whining, drawing on tables Ughh!! help!! cant they just play quietly wahhhhh!!

I also got my braces tightened today and my teeth are so sore my head feels like its going to explode....so I decided to prepare some Lachmajou for tonights dinner ...i had 3 recipes for this - Rick Stein's
,Tessa Kiros' from 'Falling Cloudberries' and Nigella's from her 'Domestic Goddess' cook book - so I got a bit from each - Peter helped mix the dough whilst Neo had a nap....Zzzz i need one too!

my new Tessa Kiros book Piri Piri Starfish arrived yesterday - its gorgeous and I cant wait to start cooking from it!
Tommorow is another day...

    Mmm...can I come for dinner?

  2. Ouch, braces tightening - I empathise. Ice cream always helped me... That food looks brilliant - can you please post the recipe? :-)

  3. hi Jess!
    if you click into 'Rick Stein' name on the post - the link to his recipe is there...they turned out really nice - I baked them just before we ate so they were nice and hot....sprinkle with lemon juice and a side salad and dinner was delish!!!

  4. It could be worse. I have teens home on school and uni hols and came home on day one and the uni students was lying in the same place on the couch I'd left her the day before with a night's sleep and a day at work since I'd seen her. Her first words were "when's dinner". Argggh. She's 19, my partner and I both worked and spent the weekend shopping, gardening, cleaning, washing etc, etc. She'd spent two solid days in front of the television - more actually, but I can only face recalling 48 hours at a time.

  5. Holidays here and 4 girls to amuse... and yes it's the same here, arguing, yelling be much giggling..
    I've been to padstow a few times and it seems to be all Rick Stein.. but it's beautiful..and the cornish pasties and scones are to die for xx

  6. your blog is great!

  7. Oh we have our moments here too. There are times I just want to race into the backyard with a paperbag to scream into!! I think it gets harder to tolerate when you are in pain. Hope your'e feeling better soon.
