We Need To Talk About…online Influencers "Online influencers"… These are the people you might be following on social media, who through their huge followings hold influence over the things we buy, the TV programmes we watch, what we eat, and more. Online influencers have clout. They have power.

Super Tasty Homemade Mini Cheddars…. Homemade mini cheddars are on the menu today! So, one thing I feel like I'm getting back to these days is making things from scratch and really thinking about the food we're eating - making it more enjoyable, better for us and definitely more interesting.
Updated Review October 2018: Is Peapod Worth It? This helps to keep me on budget. That's something that's super important to do and not easy to accomplish at the supermarket. Peapod was founded in 1989 and is America's largest online internet grocery shopping and delivery service. While this service may have started in one area of the country only, that is no longer true.

Soggy Sunday We have had one of the soggiest and fun days out ever today. We've been planning to go to Paultons park for a few weeks now. DD2 wanted to go as a treat for her birthday but it's been a huge pain to schedule. Today was the day however and we work up to grey and miserable rain.
Sock animals Apologies for the lack of posts life just keeps getting in the way of things like blogging lately. Last week we were hit with our first back-to-school bug which took us all out, one by one. Luckily it was short lived and we have all bounced back quickly.
Toad In The Hole, 18p A comforting classic that can be made easily with vegetarian sausages, if you like. My Small Boy loves this for his dinner, and so did I when I was his age! And now he makes it himself. Serves 4-6 from 18p each. 25g butter or 2 tbsp cooking oil, 3p. 400g sausages, 70p.
What I Spent, What We Ate - You guys, it's cooled down! This post contains affiliate links. Today, it feels like fall outside and I AM SO HAPPY. It's currently a breezy, sunny, low-humidity 60 degrees and my goodness, it is a blessed relief from the muggy and warm weather we've been having all fall. I know I will get really tired of cold in a few months, but right now I am exceedingly pleased.

The secret to saving money every time you eat out Eating out at restaurants is a fantastic way to spend an evening with a partner, friends or family - it's a great way to relax, eat some amazing food, and spend quality time with the people you love. That said, eating out is often reserved for special occasions and celebrations due to the cost involved.
Any one else got these…. Since having our front room window changed, we have been inundated with fruit flies. I don't think that is the cause as they are currently in every room of the house. We have never had them so bad. I shall make a trap later on as my new windows are covered with their swatted remains!
A Frugal Dilema - What Would You Do? I don't normally do posts like this, but I am in a bit of a quandary so I thought I would ask my lovely readers what you would do in the same situation. As part of our long term plans, including financial freedom and early retirement, we are aiming to be mortgage free at the same time.

What to do Instead of Shopping - Get Buyer's High Without Buying Stuff Buying new stuff feels good. But it's not always good for our finances or the planet. Here are three things to do instead of shopping that still give you that good feeling from 'acquiring' new things. Buying new things feels good. A new dress. Some throw pillows for the lounge.
Changing up the Living Spaces As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I finally got around to some much needed housework on Wednesday. I had a good deep clean and change around of our living spaces. They've been laid out in the same way for a good 5 or more years and I wanted to try something a bit different.
90's Special Peanut and Cheese Loaf, 18p This loaf was inspired by one in The Dairy Book Of Home Cookery, one of the only cookbooks I can remember my parents having when I lived at home. A meaty tome of 1000 simple recipes, I would flick through it for inspiration for my Home Economics lessons as a teenager.
No-Churn Brown Bread Ice Cream, 23p I first discovered brown bread ice cream in an old copy of Mrs Beeton's Everyday Cookery, and as an avid maker of simple ice cream and brown bread, decided to combine my two recipes. You don't need an ice-cream maker for this one, I don't own one.

Firecracker Sausages With Tragedy Mash, 61p 'If you ever see me eating sweet potato mash out of a saucepan, you know it's bad news', is a phrase that most of my friends are familiar with. Sweet potato mash with chilli and cheese is my go-to tragedy food, spooned straight from the saucepan whilst watching many a re-run of old sitcoms and new comedies.

Nigella's Lentil & Chestnut Soup, 48p This recipe is adapted from 'How To Eat' by Nigella Lawson, who in turn adapted it from 'an aromatic, velvety, manilla-coloured soup at Le Caprice' in the late 1980s. The bootstrap adjustments and pricing are my own.
How To Eat, by Nigella Lawson In 2012 I came across a copy of Kitchen, also by Nigella, and I tentatively taught myself to cook all over again.
