Happy new year!! It's fair to say that over Christmas formal meal planning went out of the window. We had lots of family over on a number of different days so I felt like I was perpetually putting out food on the table for people to dig into and in between we were winging it … Continue reading First meal plan of 2017
A couple of years ago when I was on maternity leave with my youngest, I had a crazy wannabe WI moment where I decided to make Christmas hampers as gifts instead of buying.
