Cheese and Potato Bake | Recipe and Method

Image
Today I am sharing a lovely family meal which we all seem to enjoy in this house, it is also pretty simple to make and goes great with quite a few things.
We personally serve this with gammon but it goes well with sausages and grill steaks. Me and Lils usually have sweetcorn or broccoli too. 

Ingredients
115g Grated Cheese 1 egg 30g Butter 150ml Double Cream 675g Medium/Large potatoes 1 large onion Salt and pepper
How to
1. Preheat oven to 180°c/Gas Mark 4.  2. Peel potatoes and slice thinly.  3. Slice onions and soften in butter.  4. Grease a baking dish or we use a loaf tin.  5. Place a layer of potato slices as a base, then add salt and pepper. 6. Next add some of the onions and some of the grated cheese. Save some cheese for the top.  7. Repeat until most/all the potatoes are used.  8. Beat your egg into the cream then pour over the potato layers.  9. Sprinkle with cheese and cook for 1 hour and a half. If it starts to brown quickly cover the top with foil.  10. Serve and enjoy. 

Gelli Baff and others Review

Image
We were lucky enough to have been sent some very fun items for Lil's to review, the Zimpli Kids Gelli Baff, Slime Baff and Snoball Play. These are all a bit of messy play which Lilly absoloutly loves. 
The products themselves are a very reasonable price with prices as low as £2.50 for the smaller boxes and £3 for the Gelli Baff itself. 

Gelli Baff review

Not long after the Christmas holidays started I put an afternoon aside for Lilly to have a Gelli Baff, I did this before her actually shower night so she could wash off after.

This product is skin safe, which is perfect for Lilly with her excema, which didn't even attempt to flare, it is also environmentally safe too and is also a UK made product.


When making it up you just follow the easy instructions, just 4 cms of water will create a lot of the gelli goo, it is also scented with my other half commenting how it smelt like Jelly. Please take care when you child gets into the bath as it can be slippery. 
Once we got Lilly in t…

Plans for 2019

Image
Hello 2019, and Happy New year to everyone! It seems very strange to think that it is the start of a fresh new year.

Over the past few weeks I have been thinking of things that we as a family would like to do in 2019, I think it is so important to make memories with our children as I have so many wonderful ones from my childhood.
Lilly is now 6, she seems older sometimes, but this year I want to include her in so much more. This was the first year that we have let her stay up to see the New Year in, she made it and we all toasted and watched the fireworks in telly.
My 2019 plans for us are nothing too special but they are things that will stick with us, so here we go.
1. First Cinema trip - Lilly has not yet had a cinema experience so one day in the next couple of months I want to take her down on one of the kids mornings that the Odeon do.
2. Visit the History and Science museums in London - I think this would be right up Lils Street, especially the space part in the science museum.
