Saturday Morning Autumn Cooking

I'm not a chef... instead I'm blessed with a chef!  I have been spoilt by my other half  as he is amazing in the kitchen (and so he should its his actual job!) but I'm not, I've barely cooked for us in the entire time we've been together. Shameful I know, I bet there are many woman reading this thinking "for goodness sake!" 
I think for me I've been afraid of cooking for the fear of doing it wrong. Once upon a time at school I won a cooking competition for creating a 3 course meal... and I was 13. I can only think is that I've become lazy by not cooking for myself. It needs to change, but with very little in the fridge where do I start?! With that in mind I decided to be a domestic goddess and steal one of my mums super powers... making a great meal from bits in the fridge. 
So let me take you through my Saturday morning... 
My little kitchen where I shall be creating!
My happiness pig to keep me motivated

My yummy Lasanga
My totally kitch Cath Kidston oven gloves - ready to take the food out of the oven
My Percy Pig M&S timer - who is my new best friend (and also helps me not burn the food!)

My masterpiece (go easy remember I don't do cooking!)

...My reward & some Saturday morning TV
Wasn't I clever bean?! So the boy shall be fed after he's been for a long afternoon cycle and I can nosh on it when I come back from my run. Delightful! 

What to make for a Sunday?!



  1. Sounds and looks lovely....where was our invite???? ;-) xx

  2. Hehe, I've frozen the rest so when I have my dinners alone I have plenty! :D xx

  3. RECIPE please!! I've been wanting to make a lasange for ages, what was it like?! x

  4. I will do hun, I didn't totally stick to a recipe because bits didnt taste how I wanted etc. Also to make it lower calories I used quorn mince... :) xx

  5. ..Sorry, it was actually really yummy. Full of flavour which some can lack.

  6. I'm married to a man who does all the cooking too! Aren't we lucky!! Although I have managed to get 3 recipes down pat! Quiche, lasagne and potato gratin dauphinoise-just incase I get guilted into cooking!!

  7. I do need to cook a lot more. I always think about when I have kids I'll be a useless mum in the kitchen... unless I learn! I might try and do what you did and learn to make a few things really well. xx
