Bye Bye Mince Pie… (S)

I have been grocery shopping today, a quick wizz round our local Aldi and topped up not only cat food and loo roll, but a major fill up on Salad and Veg… need to get some fresh food into Youngest before he goes back to Uni, too much booze and very late nights have taken their toll on the lads skin πŸ˜‰

I really enjoyed the cruditΓ©s yesterday but the Camembert was still heavy, and am now craving some thing lighter and above all fresh….

I am making a chicken salad tonight, not a namby-pamby Lettuce leaf with a side of air, but a proper chunky salad.


I oven cook one of the chicken joints I bought from Iceland, leave it to cool and finely slice, this will be used for the salad, and for sandwiches for hubby’s lunches next week.

A crunchy base of lettuce, with, chopped celery, grated Carrot, diced cucumber, chopped radishes, home ‘pickled’ red onions, a sliced advacado and some sweetcorn kernels

topped with the sliced chicken, with a side of jacket potato or Homemade bread for those who want them.

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
