Hi there,
With Mother's Day this weekend the thing I am hoping for most is some peace amongst my children.  While the chance of that is remote hopefully a sleep in is on the cards.  Later in the day we are off to "Dining with the Stars", celebrating Matariki in Ngaruawahia.  With Peter Gordon, Ann Thorp, Boh Runga
, Dave Dobbyn all displaying their talents the event will be filled with stars even if the sky is cloudy.

Autumn weather is settling in and although I am still enjoying salads I have moved to warmer styles.  This lamb and barley salad is delicious and a healthy meal choice.  On nights when something heartier is required  lamb shank and parsnip pie is also great.

With another term of school underway there is the constant issue of keeping lunch boxes varied and interesting.  I do try to keep the contents as homemade as possible and banana loaf is a perennial favourite - particularly if I relent and stir through some chocolate chips.
