Something tasty and filling tonight, a lovely Bolognaise sauce with Spiralised Courgettes for me, Spaghetti for the menfolk.

I am using a pack of Beef mince from last months Iceland freezer fillers.

I start by chopping a medium onion and 2 very fat cloves of garlic, these are gently fried off with a sprinkling of salt and pepper

I then add the broken up mince, cooking till browned.  I add 2 Beef stock cubes, a good squirt of tomato purée and a teaspoon of mixed herbs

Stir through and cook out the purée before adding a tin of chopped tomatoes and the tin filled with water.

Simmer for 5 minutes, then turn the heat as low as it will go and leave till thick and glossy

I have a ‘manual’ spiraliser so I simply ‘sharpen’ my Courgette till I have enough to satisfy me, one is usually enough (no sniggering at the back 🤣)

No need to cook it as the heat of the sauce is enough to heat it through – honest 😇

I make up some pasta for the men, then generously douse in freshly grated Parmesan and enjoy

Would love a glass of wine with it,  but it’s a school night and I am trying not to 🤞

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...
