Once again, I’m back to being late with our favourite five – oops! I didn’t manage to get it written up by the end of the month, and March has been super busy so I’ve barely even turned the laptop on! I’m here now though, better late than never, right?
So, what were our favourite five for February? (That’s a lot of f‘s!)
As a family we love Soreen as a brand, and the boys are always asking for malt loaf for a snack, or even for lunch! We were sent some of their new Toast-Me’s to try out, and oh my – they are absolutely delicious. Sliced in half, warmed in the toaster for a couple of minutes, and spread with butter – divine! They smell so good, like chocolate, and almost even taste like chocolate. Really melt in your mouth delicious.
Flowers from my boys
It’s not often I receive a bunch of flowers, unless I buy them myself – ahem. But never mind buying them, if you’re four you may just want to unintentionally steal them for Mummy! It’s okay though, he didn’t, and you can read the story behind it in the caption of the photo 🙂 They were possibly my favourite bunch of flowers ever!

There is a story behind this bunch of flowers 🏵 We had just finished some shopping at @asda after school, walking past the flowers Jacob said "Ooh I like these flowers" 🌺 So I said "Mummy would like some flowers some time" and we all carried on walking 👣 Or so we thought, when we noticed Jacob was missing and looked behind, he was following us out of the store with a bunch of flowers! 😮 Passers by were saying "Aww, that's so sweet! He's got some flowers for his Mummy" so of course Daddy had to go buy them on behalf of Jacob – how could he not after that?! 😍
Simply Cook recipe kits
I mentioned in this post recently that I had ordered some recipe kits from Simply Cook. I ordered the chipotle grilled steak salad, beef massaman, Vietnamese pork, and jambalya kits. We enjoyed them throughout February and they were absolutely delicious, so I’ve ordered another pack with new recipe kits! I’ll be posting a full review on these soon.
It was of course half term in February, but The Husband was working most of it so I had the boys to myself. On his day off we took a mini day road trip around the area and visited Pink Pig Farm. It’s a great place to spend a few hours, with an indoor soft play area, farm animals, and an outdoor play area. We even bumped into one of Jacob’s school friends, but that meant poor Noah was left behind so he roped Daddy into playing with him instead; not that Daddy minds, as he’s a big kid really!
Deiss Lemon Zester and Cheese Grater*
The lovely people at Deiss Kitchenware recently sent me one of their products to try out; the lemon zester & cheese grater. I normally use a chunky multi sided grater so this is a really handy addition to my kitchen when I only need it for grating something small such a nutmeg, or for grating cheese over the top of a pasta bake. The handle is a great ergonomic fit in my hand too, so it doesn’t slip when I have hold of it.
What did you enjoy during February?
