£1.90 meal for 8!

So money was a little tight this week and this meal was a lifesaver for filling up the kids bellies!


Some pinto beans soaked then cooked for around 60 minutes , mixed with garlic, chopped tomatoes and chilli powder. Rice , homemade tortilla wraps and cheese!


Chill peanut stir fry 


For a last minute “I forgot to defrost the meat” meal this was delicious!

Ingredients

Straight to wok noodles

Mange tout

Pineapple

Mushrooms 

Sweet chilli sauce

A table spoon of peanut butter

Just cook it all up in a wok and its done!


Dinosaur sensory play tray

Today was going pretty slowly and so my 1pm I had had enough of the moaning and decided to move myself to entertain the 4 year old!
We came up with this dinosaur play tray ( she loves dinosaurs at the moment). It’s just some rice mixed with bits and bobs we scavenged from the garden . The dinosaurs are from our learning resources super sorting set (love that!)

Picking blackcurrants

Our blackcurrants bush has finally produced some berries!


So yesterday afternoon we got to spend a fun 10 minutes picking them all. We enjoyed an apple and blackcurrant crumble with custard last night. With the added smug feeling of having actually grown something!!

Today we read the section on shelter in our hands on history Stone Age book. So what better way to put our new found knowledge into practice than building our own shelter.

I didn’t really fancy felling trees and hunting a mammoth so we decided to use connecting straws and a bed sheet!.
