Monthly Challenge: May

It's hard to believe that we're almost at the end of May already. The days are seriously flying passed way too quickly and it's actually starting to scare me a little. I feel like if I blink, my daughter will be in high school and Flynn will be in junior school. However, as we are facing the end of another month, it is time for my monthly challenge reveal.

This month is sort of on line with my Slimming World diet/lifestyle change. I challenged myself to try expanding my cooking skills. Over the years I've chosen the quickest, easiest and most convenient meals to make and I wanted to try something new. I have succeeded this month. I've experimented with Slimming World recipes and made a bolognese from scratch (goodbye Dolmio), I've made creamy chicken and bacon pasta with spinach from scratch, as well as creamy basil and chilli linguine my personal favourite; oven-baked meatballs! I had never made meatballs from scratch before and I'd never cooked with aubergines or courgettes. I felt so proud seeing how well it turned out and even prouder at how great it tasted. Plus, it stretched to two nights dinner for us which was an added bonus.

So yeah, I'm still trying new recipes and expanding my cooking skills but I'm definitely calling this month a huge win! Next months challenge is already set and I cannot wait to start it on Saturday!

Until next time,
