Soup’s a bit of a mega mid-week staple round here and it’s rare a week goes by without either one of The Monsters declaring a desire for something soupy for their tea. Here’s a more flavoursome twist on a butternut, sweet potato and lentil one….
Let’s Get Baking folks, preferably with those little ones getting down and floury too, but do link up any of your child-friendly bakes. We’re talking biscuits, breads, tarts, pies, cakes, muffins, brownies, traybakes. Sweet or savoury, anything goes……
