toasted pine nut and sweet potato salad

As we're off to Folkestone-by-the-Sea for my mum's 69th birthday (or 70th if you're my brother), tonight's dinner is a matter of using up what we've got in the fridge. Luckily we've got *just* enough spinach for both of us, meaning I don't have to take a jaunt to Sainsburys.

I bulk it up with the last of the basil leaves, double pine nuts and a highly un-bikini blitz extra portion of Sweet Potato:

Strangely, unlike last time there doesn't seem to be any issues with it tonight. Okay the avocado is a little soft, but the potato and the vinegar dressing are all in working order. Maybe our taste buds were a being a little wonky? Although I take Sarah's point, I didn't mention the presence of the lurrve pear so maybe the whole thing was sulking?

Food of the Milos
Back to Julia's and it seems the tactic of not giving him so much milk in the morning, and avoiding the snacks on the way, means he eats more breakfast. Well, a sweet yum yum on top of his toast and phili anyway. Cheesey pasta for dinner, and then he gets a double dose of pasta with the remainder of Rob's mushroom pasta 'sauce'. If you can call mushrooms in tinned tomatoes a sauce. Maybe it counts down under? Snigger
