We decided to try a new twist on an old favourite so we substituted the well known pineapple for mango to see what it would be like and I have to say, it works really well. In fact my whole family said that they prefer the mango to pineapple in this cake and Faith really enjoyed cooking it with me.

I am very lucky to be working with Shoplet UK as one of their reviewers and a few weeks ago they sent me this lovely magnetic notice board which I love.
Shoplet are an Office Stationary supplier but many of their products are also great for use at home.

First we had Lauren's prom which was lovely and so exciting for Lauren as it was something that she had been looking forward to for such a long time.

Monday 7th July.
Chicken pie, mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables.
A store brought pie makes this a nice and easy dinner to kick start the week!
Tuesday 8th July.
Turkey dinosaurs, cauliflower and broccoli cheese and chips or roast potatoes.
Wednesday 9th July.
I use a Dolmio sauce in a jar for this as I prefer the taste to my own and it only takes 25 minutes from start to finish for this dinner.
Thursday 10th July.
Iceland Chicken hotpot, extra potatoes and vegetables.
Friday 11th July.
Pizza for the kids.
Darren and I are going out to a country pub for a drink and something to eat.
Saturday 12th July.
BBQ chicken breasts, boiled rice and garlic bread.
Sunday 13th July.
Rustic chicken with extra potatoes and vegetables.
One of those packets which you add fresh ingredients to the bag which has some herbs or spices in and oven cook the meal in the bag.

This week has been a frustrating week which has been well, frustrating! I have been having problems with my uni application which I did mention on a previous post and I am currently waiting for responses from various people and until I get those responses there is literally nothing that I can do, which I find extremely frustrating as I am a very proactive type of person and I am also very impatient and knowing there are deadlines looming for applications and financing decisions etc it has been one of those weeks that I really do not like.

Lauren has now officially left high school and we have been busy getting things ready for her prom which will be this Friday. I think that she is OK, but she has found it difficult to cope with the fact that she is growing up and leaving her high school days behind her, as she really loved her school and she was very involved in all aspects of school life.

I am so sorry that I have been so quiet this last week. I have been so busy this last week sorting out Lauren for her prom this Friday and also sorting out my uni application, I have not had time to think and I just had to step away from the blog as something had to give.
