    Fisherman's Pie

    This is delicious with sweet potato mash instead of ordinary potatoes, or try using cooked sliced waxy potatoes, such as Nicola. Brush them with melted butter, then sprinkle with grated parmesan before baking.

  • Starting school

    Tue, 23 Aug 2011 15:49

    I was always petrified when starting back at school, what would my classmates be like, would the teacher be human, could I find somewhere safe and/or dry to eat my squashed Marmite sandwiches at lunchtime? If only I'd had access to a selection of reassuring books on this new experience then I'm sure I'd have settled in much more quickly... I've selected a few of the best starting school titles, if you know some I've missed feel free to comment!
