I love Jamie Oliver and one of my favourite cook books is his Five Ingredient, One Pot cookbook. I’m always looking for quick and easy meals that taste delicious for those days where I’m not feeling like cooking, or I’m sick. This Sausage and Apple Bake is a winner – it’s quick, easy and delicious. I would highly recommend this – even if you’re a bit unsure about the parsnips like me!

Repost from @2wiveswithkids using @RepostRegramApp - As a few of you who follow us have noticed we at 2 Wives have been missing for the past few weeks.
Our son spent 8 days in a coma. We won’t go into details. He is an adult and if he wants to tell his story he can. After all, it is his to tell. This is our story.
As a mother, it is absolutely heartbreaking to watch your child struggle for breath so much he needs to be intubated. It matters not that he is grown. Our big strong boy was in the fight of his life. Days spent sitting beside him. Talking to him. Juggling the needs of our other kids.
Wondering everyday if he would pull through.
Together we got through it. By relying on each other and the strength of our marriage. Being each other’s safe place to cry, scream and express the frustration that is life in the ICU.
Together with the help of others.
Thank you to all those who stepped in and up. Your support and help was really appreciated.
This experience has fundamentally changed us. A lot of time sitting around and waiting gives you a lot of time to think. Time to reflect on the things we wish we had done better as parents. Time to decide how to do better in the future. Relationships come into focus. You appreciated those around you more.
Clarity is gained. You focus in on what is truly important to you. Family, home, good friends, travel.
We won’t let what happened be in vain. We will move forward. Our goals for the future, for our family, our business and our adventures are clearer now. And instead of saying we can’t we are saying we can. Instead of saying if only, we will find a way. No obstacle cannot be moved.
It has been a tough few months. The road ahead will require hard work, tenacity and focus but, together we can do it. We can carve out the life we want.
It is time to boldly, with courage, step out. No mountain is too high to overcome. We can create the life we want. It might take negotiation, but we will do it.
Watch this space!!!
