I had my big cooking day today and will finish of the main meals tomorrow. It is a big job but I am seeing the benefits of cooking all at once.
The food bill is much cheaper. We don't need to dash out and get some take away because I am just too tired to cook or cannot be bothered.
Steve spent a good part of the day working in the backyard. We are still having some warm weather so it is nice to spend time outside working on the yard. Our next big project for our home improvements will be putting in a pergola and landscape around it. We have to save a bit of money before we can afford to do it so we are working on smaller projects at the moment. Tom and Amelia are going to do a vegetable garden as a part of their home school curriculum. They are going to grow zucchini, pumpkin and broad beans. We also want them to look after a couple of pots of herbs. We planted some basil today and hopefully we will get some parsley as well.
