Black bean and sausage soup...

... Without the sausage!

Lucy has been experimenting with her new crockpot - a part-time single parent's time-saving saviour. Yesterday was a delicious black bean and sausage soup, but we were short some sausages. I use the term delicious very loosely here. Just try to imagine the flavour by glancing at the black mush in the picture. Only is wasn't even that good. Amazingly enough, Alice loved the stuff and even asked for a second bowl. Guy, this is one meal you should be happy you were away for. (and don't worry, there are no leftovers in the freezer for when you come home)

A question to our readers... do you have any brilliant crock-pot recipes to share? (you can email the short hand version to my hotmail!)

Growing up together

Here are some pics of a coffee date we had with Renee and Hugo last week. Hugo was born the day after Estelle (and is now 4 lbs heavier!) so we've been hanging out and comparing sleep/poop/tummy-time notes.

"Um, excuse me Estelle, but may I please have my giraffe back?"

Have a safe trip... and come back soon!

May I join you?

We dug out the high chair so that Estelle can sit at the table with us. Only a month or so until she actually gets to EAT!
