So, Eban has been back to school for several weeks now and this year I decided that I was going to adopt an “I’m going to be extra prepared this year” attitude. I think we’ve hit the nail on the head with being prepared and foods like these #ChileanEasyPeelers have been making our school routine so simple.
So October has arrived and with it all the best parts of the year. Halloween, cooler days, changes to the trees, tasty food and all the reasons to snuggle up under a blanket – it’s my favourite month of the year. It also brings pumpkins, many different varieties and types including the traditional Halloween one and one simple question. Can You Eat Halloween Pumpkins?
As you all know by now I’m not naturally frugal, unlike some of the other frugal bloggers I’m friends with. I have to actively try to be frugal, not because I need to but because I want to. I want to be able to spend the money I save on things that are more fun than bread or apples. So when Contact Numbers UK asked me to be part of their #CNUKFrugalFoodie campaign I was happy to accept.
UPDATE: I just wanted to add an update to the start of this post due to no longer being on the Keto Diet. Primarily this was because my husband’s health was getting worse but we’ve both decided to go back to a plant-based diet. I’m a firm believer in not removing content if I don’t need to so even though I’m no longer following it, and I’m vegan, the post will remain as an information aid.
Picture the scene. Gents in bracers and hats, ladies in frilly flapper dresses and the soundtrack of the Gatsby era in the background. The Boogie-Woogie happening on the dance floor and everyone having a good time. If you know me then a 1920’s themed night isn’t something I’d normally go for but I was luckily invited to the launch of Manhattan ‘Til Midnight at Marco’s Restaurant in Sheffield.
Eating together as a family has always been a dream of mine. Sitting at the table, discussing the day and fun banter is something I’ve tried to achieve but life doesn’t work like that. Some days Eban will eat a completely separate meal to us because of work or school. So when I was given the offer to eat as a family at Prezzo recently I couldn’t wait.
