Blue Monday

Today is blue Monday and is apparently the most depressing day of the year, Christmas and the holidays feel like a distant memory and the month of January endless. For parents, like myself, it can also be the peak of total exhaustion (after a long holiday break with small ones). The cold and wet weather is also a real challenge as it can be hard to get time outdoors. To keep spirits up I am testing lots of brilliant pancake recipes: to compile my top 3. This has been really fun: so far I have tested one using sweet potato and I am also trying one with oats, soaked overnight first.

A new family supper idea this week: Stuffed and Roasted Peppers, which can be prepped ahead and finished in the oven just before serving. I am also testing a brilliant toddler biscuit recipe I found online Spelt & Apple Biscuits. Hopefully this is one I can get my daughter involved in too. 

This week we are also collaborating with a fabulous online baby boutique Lucy & Belle, they really are a one-stop-destination for babies. They will be offering a giveaway with Mimi's Bowl: enter the competition with a chance to win and lift the January Blues!
