For Dinner Tonight:

Spaghetti with Sweet Pepper Sauce & Ham
Homemade Crunchie Bar Ice-Cream

It has been a busy day, so this was thrown together very quickly - thanks to a jar of pasta sauce and some left-over ham. The ice-cream was a special treat for Rob who has been asking for it ever since we brought the ice-cream maker out of storage. Basically it is vanilla ice-cream with chopped up Crunchie bar folded into it. I'm not sure how international the Crunchie Bar is - it's a chocolate covered honeycomb/cinder toffee bar that is utterly delicious, incredibly sweet and my husband's favourite. The meal was a big hit with the boys. I think all the exercise and fresh air had given them an appetite. Spaghetti is always popular but it is the first time that I have ever known our 4 year old to eat something with a tomato based sauce on it. "Thank you mummy for making this meal" he said. Given the struggles we often have with him over food, I feel very encouraged.
