We had some special guests over for a playdate yesterday. Heidi and her two children came to have a play and got asked to cook us all lunch! ;-)
I had some cod reserved for the kids and instead of having it plain grilled like my children normally do Heidi made a healthy sauce to cook it in containing tomatoes, spinach, fresh basil and garlic.
Looks yummy, heh!
A tiny bit of chilli flakes, black pepper and Himalayan salt.
And then the fish in to cook.
Lid on until ready.
Whilst waiting for the lunch our tiny garden saw some action.
Heidi and her children didn't only come to cook us lunch, they also helped with cleaning! They're definitely welcome anytime!
As starters we had some crudites with my absolute favourite houmous from Waitrose. I've tried so many and this is the winner by far!
Lunch is ready!
Hmmm... wonder if it's any good. Yes it was, they all loved it. The fish was served with some brown spaghetti.
Little M shed a few tears after her lunch. It was because her mean mum (who had clearly put bronzer on in the dark that morning) suggested a kids cinema for the afternoon. Apparently she only wants to go to cinema with daddy so the suggestion was rather upsetting... well I'll know next time! ;-)
Heidi and I both have a soon to be 2-year old and a soon to be 4-year old. How we met was totally randomly at a London playground two years ago. We both had a newborn in the buggy and a 2-year old running around. Heidi heard me speak in Finnish to my children and came to introduce herself. She then left for Miami about a year ago but is currently staying in London. It's nice to be in the same place again for at least a little while! I'm sure we can fit in a couple of more playdates before we head off to different directions again.
