best-gourmet-food-delivery-service

Here at Mums In Real Life, we love a gimmick and nothing quite beats a good ‘ spiralling’ session!! Not only is it fun (the kids LOVE watching!), but it gets the kids eating their superfoods too and…they just look so so pretty!!

We have the Hemsley & Hemsley model, although there are plenty of others about!!

Check out their page, they have a super range:

So how did we cook the Courgettes? We simply added a small amount of salt to a pan of boiling water, added the courgettes and reduced to a simmer for 4 minutes. We then drained and served as a side.

Homemade Potato Salad – A Must Make

Whilst our gardens here in parts of the SE of England are enjoying copious amounts of rain, here at Mums In Real Life, we’re thinking about the summer.

This led to thinking about food (naturally!), a topic never far from our minds.

My Dad always makes this potato salad and it is quite simply, delicious! I have never been able to face buying shop bought potato salad since eating it!

The good news is, it is also super easy to make and we’re sharing it with you!

Ingredients (for 4 people):

3 eggs

5 small potatoes (peeled and cubed)

2tbsp Mayonnaise

3 Fresh Chives

Pepper to season

Method:

Peel and cube the potatoes, place into water and bring up to boil. Once at boiling point, simmer for 10-12 minutes until al dente. Remove from heat and drain. Allow to cool down.

Meanwhile, boil the eggs for 5-6 minutes.

Cool the eggs in cold water, once cooled, peel.

Roughly chop up the eggs and place on top of the potatoes.

Add 2 generous tbsps of Mayonnaise, mix gently. Next up, use scissors to snip the Chives on top.

This is a wonderful accompaniment to any bbq or Salad. Give it a go!

Greek Night


So, with word that Storm Freya was hitting us this weekend, we headed over to Tahlias’ and Co for a Greek night. Having taken inspiration from Pinterest, Tahlia cooked up a storm! We were greeted with a 7 layer hummus dip, served with mini Pitta breads.

The house was a cacophony, one room blasting out pop music (kids bop), another the sound of boys debating levels re the console, then the smells. Oh, the smells!! The fragrances from Briam, Greek roasted vegetables.

The senses were in overdrive. Especially when the roasted lamb Kleftikoe came out of the oven!

Nom nom. We certainly enjoyed an incredibly tasty, succulent meal – watch this space for the recipe cards.
