Welcome to Sarah Walley and G. Guthrie via Bloglovin.
I have designed myself a sheet for planning our menu and working out a shopping list from it:
The shopping lists are typed that way as this list lives on our fridge door. Once shopping for week 1 is written, it can be torn/cut off leaving the following week in situ ready to be filled in - see, there is method in my madness:)
With the exception of fish and the occasional sausage, everything else is cooked from scratch. We know what goes in them and very little is wasted (fat, used bones etc) which go into our council waste bin. In case you are also wondering, the chicken nuggets are home made, can't abide any of the bought ones.
We were sitting out on the patio yesterday afternoon, just long enough to have a cup of tea. Although we were under the big awning, our feet and legs weren't. I could feel my feet and legs burning, even through jeans. After 45 minutes couldn't take it so went inside and checked. Yep, sunburn on both knees. Just shows you, jeans are not what they used to be!
Same thing with my face and neck chatting to a friend on the doorstep for about 20 minutes. Bring on the rain, we are bone dry here now.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
