Easy and ready-to-cook Delicious Meals from Birds Eye

As parents of young kids, we try to give them healthy and freshly prepared meals as much as we can.  We all know the dangers of giving them too much ready to cook meals, microwavable meals, or (gasp) take-away meals – we all know that too well.

During the few times though that we sort of take the easy-way-out and give in to ready-to-cook-meals, because, well, sometimes we’re just too tired/too busy/at a loss with what to cook/take your pick and hey, you know-what, it’s okay.  It doesn’t mean you’re a bad parent and feeding your child junk, not at all, especially since there are food brands out there that you can trust like Birds Eye.

Little T loves their fish fingers, but their not just all about fish fingers or peas, they’ve got a whole range of healthy food like Steamfresh vegetables, rice and pasta which can be ready in minutes!  Plus, they also have a variety of chicken and fish dishes made with fresh ingredients. Yum! Keeping in with the times, they’ve also come up with a fun product called Mashtag, which are actually delicious potato shaped like, yep, you got it right, hashtags!  And the good news is that they are made with 100% real potatoes.

And if you’re a bit lost or just want something a bit different to serve on your Christmas table, or when some friends and family come over unannounced during the holidays, worry not.  As mentioned, Birds Eye offer a delicious range of meals to choose from which are easy to prepare and ready within minutes – just make sure, you’re well stocked-up!

You can follow them on their FB page and twitter, that way you’ll never miss out on their excellent new products and good deals.

A Whinge-less Post

After my last entry, I’m happy to report that the weather has improved and temperature has dropped.  In fact since the sun was up, it was actually possible to have a meal outside, wearing only a light cardigan.  T even refused to wear hers and was playing around with her friends in her shorts and a long-sleeved shirt.

Yes, the day was glorious, so we had breakfast out with some friends and their kids at our favourite hang-out, the Boscastle Farm shop as mentioned here.  That’s another thing worth mentioning about the English weather – unpredictable.  One minute it’s cold, dreary and dreadful.  The next, it’s sunshiny and absolutely lovely.

I had the full English breakfast which as you see consists of two eggs, bacon, sausage, fried potatoes, tomato, mushrooms and two pieces of toast.  Yummy!  The food in the farm shop all comes from local produce which makes the meals even more special.  If you’re in the area, come and visit!

Of course, this won’t last, but the trick there is to make the most of the good sunshiny weather when it’s there.
