This week is a fairly normal and quiet one, I think. I say quiet – I spend most evenings ferrying children backward and forwards to various clubs. Harrison has martial arts twice a week, Alex is starting a multi-sports club this week and they have their usual youth club at the church. This is where batch cooking and my slow cooker really become useful – food is ready for when we get in, and if someone needs to later because they are at a club, it can stay in there keeping warm. We never got around to making hot chocolate in the slow cooker over the weekend, but I have promised the boys I will do it one night this week so watch this space for the recipe.
