sesame chicken salad with cucumber and celery

Operation Manwaring Day Two swings into action, early doors today because whilst I'm out, the children - and I include Rob and Ana in that - are playing. Today they're mainly playing at the aquarium.

Rob's out tonight with State Registered Dramatherapist Rammers, who is lurking on the sofa when I get back. I haven't seen her for ages, and she's on good form, however she's not here to entertain me, so whilst her and Dr RP Manwaring practice lighting paper lanterns on her allotment, we have double portions of sesame chicken.

The great thing about it is even if you've only got a smallish amount of chicken, you can compensate with more carrot and cucumbers. It's also a useful way of using up the stray toasted sesame seeds left-over from Ana's Munchy Seeds tub.

Food of the Milos
It's a picnic day for the blond(e) twins. Whilst Tillburger feasts on Weetabix, Milo vaguely chews on some toast. Things pick up on the trip where he makes a start on ana's crayfish and rocket sandwich, tilly's chocolate and marshmallow ice cream, and then jacket potato, cheese and beans for dinner. Hurrah!
