Day 6: The 365 Day Activity Challenge

6th January 2017

Today is Food Friday, so we made homemade Bolognese from scratch with wholemeal pasta. I love getting the boys involved with cooking!

I didn’t get any pictures of the prep unfortunately but I’ll be sure to make it again next week and take more pictures, it turns out cooking with toddlers means you need both hands at all times, ha!

So we started with a 250g pack of Mince, I always personally feel there’s too much fat, so I brown it and drain the fat off.

We then wizzed up tinned tomatoes, fresh tomatoes and tomato puree (it was very tomatoey!) I added in fresh garlic, onions, 1 beef oxo cube, a touch of salt & pepper and a smidgen of Mustard! Jack loved measuring out teaspoonfuls of each spice and food we added, Mikey preferred pressing the button on the food processor.

Once the the mince was browned, I added the sauce and let it heat on the stove for a while, when I dished them up, I added a little touch of ground up Almonds, I mushed them up with a pestle and mortar and Jack enjoyed helping me crush them.

Here’s the finished results:

The boys loved it! It’s amazing how much more they enjoy their food when they help to make it.
