I want to be a mummy who’s house is tidy (although not too much as kids do live here you know), I want to have matching furniture in the right place and I want to have a bathroom that gleams and stays gleaming!
But what I really want to be able to do is make food, proper food, actually get out the cook books (that I own many) and make meals for the family, full on delicious recipes and puddings to drool over!
Don’t get me wrong, I can make meal, I have a repertoire of Spaghetti Bolognaise, Chilli, Pizza and Fajitas! When I have a spare few minutes I can even muster up a banana cake to follow the main course!
I want to make caramelised vegetable tart, curries from scratch, lemon meringue and black forest gateaux! I want to serve up three course dinners fit for royalty and stuff that makes the kids say – oh my, mummy makes the best….whatever!
My main issue seems to be time, working all day, wanting to spend every second at home with the kids and hubby seems to only leave time for waffles or pasta! Daddy does help, he cooks most days to be honest, but I feel I should be doing it, actually no, scrap that it’s not that i should be, it’s that I want to be, I want to make the house smell of ginger biscuits, apple and cinnamon cake and more!
So come on folks, help me out – how do you do it? How do you maintain day to day life with being a domestic goddess? Or if you don’t do you have budget, easy and quick, yet delicious recipes to share?
