Sometimes your OH can really make you laugh. You needn't point out how much they undermine their own argument.
They come home with a Juicer. A kitchen gadget.
Because it's been reinforced to you so many times about not needing that slow cooker/ bread maker/ waffle maker.
And ok. He's been using it. But he's yet to make anything other than he will consume (that's stubbornness for you).
And then Parragon Books come to the rescue....
I love that the book is broken into how recipes can best help you.
Mr J plays Squash and goes swimming every day, so has been paying particular attention to the 'Energy' section.
More fun is trying different fruits, and encouraging the children to get involved. They have staples where fruit is concerned (bananas, apples, strawberries, raspberries)- but new foods are instantly received with trepidation.
Whilst some of the recipes may be initially received with raised eyebrows, after creating them and cynicism is dispersed we've found winners.
And yes. I am of course using this experience to demonstrate to Mr J that more kitchen gadgets should be encouraged!
