Pesto Chicken, Spinach and Tomato Tart

With it being half term there are plenty of opportunities to get busy baking in the kitchen and Minxy loves to be hands on when it comes to cooking. She made this delicious pastry tart using Jus-Rol pastry on Monday and it was all gone by the evening! 

It's ideal for a hot lunch or light dinner, you can even slice it and take it on a picnic - it's so versatile!

I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside - California Cliffs


Last week we escaped from the hustle and bustle of every day life and travelled to Great Yarmouth for a few days. Our accommodation was within a 5 minute walk of a fairly quiet beach so we took a stroll there each evening to play in the sand.

We wrote our names with stones, skimmed rocks, built a wall to block the sea and we even spotted some seals! There is something about an empty beach that is so relaxing. Watching the waves crash, the glistening shells and listening to the Mini Mes giggle as the water splashes them always makes me smile.
