As much as I love being outdoors, the wind and rain combined just makes me want to hibernate. I couldn’t think of a better accompaniment to a chilly evening than a big bowl of leek and potato soup!
Starters / Appetizers
Oh just give me a warm pitta bread and let me dive right in to a huge bowl of hummus! I literally cannot get enough. I am pleased to say Bam Bam has the same obsession I do. Quite often at lunchtime you will find us fighting over a big bowl, loading up pittas and rice cakes and whatever else we can find to dip into it.
When I eat out, Mozzarella in Breadcrumbs is one of my favourite starters. There is a particular Italian restaurant I have been going to for years, purely on the strength of the amazing tomato sauce they serve it up with.
I fancied giving the family a little change from having plain potatoes as a side and these make a great alternative.
Bam Bam loves them as they are a perfect toddler size to pick up in handfuls and nugget has even given them a go. Between us, we never have any left!
