Menu Plan

Our menu plan for this week has an international flavour.  With St Paddy's day this weekend we've decided to have a few dedicated Irish meals.  We also have a love of all things Moroccan so that has a place too...

Thursday ~ Beer Can Chicken with Pico de gallo salsa
Friday ~  Irish Stew
Saturday ~ Beef & Guinness Pie
Sunday ~ Chicken Kdra with Chick Peas
Monday  ~
Tuesday ~ Pressure Cooked Lamb, Lemon & Mint
Wednesday ~ Date Night

I have intentionally left Monday empty as there's a pretty good chance we'll be out for dinner on Saturday which is St Paddy's Day.  Therefore what is 'booked in' for Saturday will simply move down the line.  That's the joy of menu planning!!

If you'd like any of these recipes I'd be happy to share.

Stationery & Organising

There's no doubt I love stationery. I love TYPO, Kikki K you name it if it's stationery I want need it!
I often find I love the pieces I buy so much that I don't want to use them!! I love stationery catalogues too..oohing and ahhing over the diaries, journals and notebooks.

But trying to find a diary/organiser that fit my needs was a little hard.  I decided to stick with what I had which was a diary, a To Do notebook and a Shopping List notebook and try and corral it all so it was portable.  Enter the Mummy Organiser by Zahley Rose!  I love it!! It holds all the items I need to feel be organised.

I bought a simple student's diary and recovered it in scrapbook paper and I was set.  It's great having everything in one place and I can just pick it up and go.

It's A4 size and just perfect for my bag.

Closed view. 


And the open view with my diary and notebooks.  The black pockets are perfect for loose notes and/or receipts.

Anyhoo just wanted to share xx
