The weather outside is stormy, with snow showers threatened. Moo has gone rollerskating with friends. What better things to do on an afternoon tucked up inside away from the rains, than finishing off crochet blankets (sewing in ends – not my favourite job, but a necessary one) and getting organised food-wise (because with a baby on the way I’m trying to get back into the rhythm of menu planning in an effort to ensure we avoid some of the last minute, “I’m exhausted and can’t bear to stand in the kitchen without being sick” moments that are inevitable when you’re heavily pregnant).
A good source of ideas (and reading on nutrition) are Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon, Wholefood for Children and Coming Home to Eat: Wholefood for the Family, both by Jude Blereau. All are great references for back to basics/cook from scratch recipes and I’d love to treat myself to a few more books from these authors when I get the chance!
Joining in with Ginny from the lovely Small Things blog in her Yarnalong and Nicole’s Frontier Dreams’ Keep Calm and Craft On (both for what seems like the first time in ages!) Both are blogs that I have now followed for years and are a wonderful read!
