We are getting tired of the same meals. We also want to improve our diet through eating less processed meat so yesterday Mama sat with the girls and they selected some new recipes to try.
This was the recipe for part of tonight’s meal. We needed to buy some accompanying veg and as I had promised the girls we would go fruit picking before the end of the Summer we headed to Craigie’s Farm near Kirkliston to kill two birds with one stone.
Strawberries and raspberries were in abundance so we got straight to work and picked a few punnets worth. Moo was in her element as she is now tall enough to reach and pick the dangling strawberries.
We also picked some runner beans for our dinner. We actually went home with about 6 times as many beans as we needed due to Beanster’s ‘efficient’ method of picking being to pull the whole branch off.
After all that work we needed some food and a play in the farm play park.
True to form Beanster made a wee friend and whilst playing they discussed pocket money and budgeting. Moo decided to play My Little Pony.
Later we made Lego vehicles and tested how well they worked down different slopes.
Beanster went to see a friend and we learned about galaxies and how astronauts go to the toilet in space.
And how did our new dinner recipe taste…
…’bsolutely yuck,’ apparently! Oh well, you win some, you lose some and on this occasion it was an absolute fail.
