Time for some pancakes at long last. We waited for Daddy to come home from work then helped him in the kitchen.
We bought a special Hello Kitty frying pan so we could make small pancakes and we knew the kids would love the Hello Kitty shape.
They did and ate themselves full.
It rained pretty much all day but we were lucky that there was nothing urgent for us to do but stay indoors and keep dry. At snack time we reached for the Pickled Onion Pom-Bears. For the second year you will be able to get your hands on the Limited Edition Pickled Onion Pom-Bear Halloween snacks!
The snacks have the same light and airy texture that has become synonymous with Pom-Bear. Each pack is less than 100 calories, suitable for vegetarians, gluten free and has no added colours or scary preservatives.
We were sent a box so we could try them out for ourselves and they went down very well! We always keep a stack of Pom-Bear crisps and these are a great seasonal variety. They cost £1.59 for a pack of six, and are available in ASDA, Tesco, Waitrose and NISA.
Perfect for trick or treaters, nibbles or packed lunches!
We were invited to take part in a BBQ recipe challenge. The weather has cooled down a lot today so we had our second barbecue of the year and cooked some delicious spare ribs with BBQ sauce. I’m not sure if this counts as a typically British main meal but it was delicious and pretty simple, ready to eat in under an hour.
In a bowl place the spare ribs (we used beef) and add a bunch of chopped spring onions, a generous dollop of garlic puree and pinch of chilli powder. Add to this 6 tbsp demerara sugar, 6 tbsp soy sauce, 6 tbsp clear honey and 6 tsp mustard. Make sure the ribs are completely covered in the marinade, cover and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes.
The ribs were transferred to the BBQ and cooked for about 20 minutes until thoroughly cooked. The remaining sauce was added to the ribs while they were cooking, leaving lovely sticky ribs!
So the photo is not very inspiring, you’ll just have to take my word for it that it tasted good. We served it with lots of lovely fresh salad, including beetroot which the toddler had for the first time and really enjoyed.
The toddler said it was good!
Disclosure – we were provided with a Waitrose voucher to purchase food and drink to take part in this challenge. I have also been asked to include a link in my post to the John Lewis barbecue page.
