I had to take the boys to the health centre this morning - James was due his 4-months-old round of jabs. Naturally, the place was absolute bedlam and we were there for ages. He's teething as well, so his mood was not all it could have been. I struggle to give him Calpol as he spits it all back out, not good. I've now got some teething powders, as recommended by the health visitor, to try. Here's hoping...
By the time we finished with all that, it was well after one, so I took the boys to a café for lunch before coming home and attempting to get on with all the things I should have been doing this morning.
No great inspiration for dinner this evening, so we had Chicken & Bacon Melts based on something that used to be served in a local pub, many moons ago.
It's a simple enough idea. Cubed, cooked chicken and pieces of bacon stuffed into a short baguette roll, drizzled with BBQ sauce and smothered with grated cheese. Put in a 200°c oven for 10 minutes until the cheese melts and bubbles. The pub used to serve it with salad and those weird, extruded potato, 'curly fries'. I just cut some baking potatoes into wedges, tossed them in some vegetable oil and baked them at 200°c for 40 minutes.
Hubby usually takes care of bathtime after we've eaten, but for some reason the hot water hasn't come on, so he's currently marshalling a tantrum from a very tearful Christopher instead. Oh dear.
