Feeding the family that grows…

Officially today Jakob is taller than me. Is this a reason to celebrate or to mourn the loss of my baby boy? I have about 11 weeks to go and counting before our 6 mouths will turn into 7. A far more Godly number that, number seven.

I was recently very encouraged to read in one of the arty design blogs I follow from time to time that the gorgeous Anna Maria Horner is expctting too, number 6! She has been parenting for 17 years and I suspect must have started very early as she looks so young. Check out her blog and see what I mean.

This week it has felt like a battle to feed all the mouths in our house: more travel, work, pregnancy tiredness and tests have met less time to cook and bake. So our standbys have been:

  • Stir Fried Noodles
  • Thai Green Chicken Curry with Rice
  • Fish and Chips (the frozen kind!) with salad
  • Spaghetti Bolognese

Last week I had roasted 2 chickens when family came for dinner and then had to face using leftovers to make soup, chicken pie, chicken sandwiches……I think you can have too much chicken in a week. Here’s to the week ahead with more variety for the ever growing needs of our tribe.
