Kids in the kitchen

Last week was our October school holiday so we had a mix of lazy days in the house and being out and about. A few weeks ago I noticed our local council was running a week long kids cooking course during the holiday at a cost of £50. I was interested in this but didn’t want to commit to the early starts for the full 5 days. Instead I decided to have our own cooking theme with the kids. They picked 5 menu items that we would cook together throughout the week. They loved it and were so enthusiastic.


We used a lentil soup recipe which I found here, it was just what we needed on a blustery day!

We also loved our day out at The Enchanted Forest and at a Lego Brick City exhibition yesterday.

The foodie treat of the week was a champagne afternoon tea at Gleneagles, with just the girls. We were treated like royalty and my wee Gran loved it, as you can see, she’s not looking bad for 90!


This week’s menu is:

Monday – Pasta Neopolitan
Tuesday – Chorizo & pepper risotto
Wednesday – Leek & potato soup
Thursday – Chinese beef stirfry
Friday – Pizza & party food
Saturday – Lasagne
Sunday – Turkey joint

I hope you all have a good week. Check out other’s meal plans at Mrs M’s Meal Planning Mondays x

  1. Hi, what an amazing idea! It looks as though you had a ball! I’ll have to remember this for when my little man is a bit older! Oooh the chorizo & pepper risotto sounds good! Great meal plan. 🙂 #mealplanningmonday
