Little tins of beans and Sausages , that cost about 49p, i owe alot to them !!!
As most parents Know that period between 4.30 and 5 , when the tiredness kicks in and afternoon nap has worn off.... is the perfect time for melt downs .
If you reach meltdown stage , well your chances of your toddler waiting for something to cook for 20-40 mins in the oven are next to none!!
These periods of time used to stress me out , especially when you've been out for the day and your tired !
Till i found that my little miss would clear a plate of beans and sausages ,2 mins and 30 seconds in the microwave with a piece of toast(dairy free butter).
Give it 5 minutes for the food to set in your sorted , peace has been restored !!
We probably end up with this maybe twice a week , I don't feel guilty that its not a proper home cooked meal .
I actually feel relived that she has eaten something , that her tummy wont be rumbling in the night .
