How to remember everything! Even as a mum.

How I remember things

Juggling work, children (or grandchildren), housework, paperwork; friends and family can be extremely difficult in our fast-paced lifestyle.

The ONLY way I can manage everything is being reliant on my diary.

Receipts, return labels and shopping lists go in the pocket. Stickers are used throughout the diary to remind me of birthdays, appointments for hairdressers, dentists and vets. Plus servicing for cars and boilers.

I note everyone’s meetings, events and appointments on the days, and general ‘to dos’ for that week in the reminders panel at the bottom.

I often meal plan for the week, thereby reducing my stress levels when juggling work with homework and clubs.

In addition to the daily and weekly essentials I jot other reminders down in the notes sections – ideas for birthday or Christmas gifts as they pop into my head, places to visit for future weekends, plus my password clues  (never the actual passwords!).

 

Tell us how you remember everything!

We would love to hear your tips.

And watch out for the new 2020 Dairy Diary; all will be revealed in the summer…….

It’s National Barbecue Week!

Two new burger recipes to try

Celebrate with two fantastic new burger recipes

If the weather is even briefly sunny, we Brits love to barbecue.

Enjoying time outdoors is a tonic for the soul.

Quick After-Work cookbookInvite a few friends and enjoy two new mouthwatering burgers based on recipes from our Quick After-Work Cookbook; they are a welcome change to the ubiquitous beef burger.

To find out more about this wonderful cookbook click here.

Enjoy!

 

 


 

Harissa Lamb Burgers with FetaHarissa Lamb Burgers with Feta

Serves 2 Time 20 minutes Per portion: 586 Kcal, 35g fat (19g saturated)

Red onion 1 small, peeled and halved
Lean minced lamb 250g (9oz)
Harissa paste 1 tbsp
Feta cheese 110g (4oz), crumbled
Finely chopped mint 3 tbsp, plus extra to serve
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Olive oil
Cucumber ¼, diced
Greek yogurt 3 tbsp
Little Gem lettuce a few leaves
2 baps, halved and toasted

Cut a few slices of onion and reserve for serving, then finely chop the rest. Tip the lamb into a bowl and add the chopped onion, harissa, Feta, 2 tablespoons mint, a little salt (as the Feta is quite salty) and plenty of black pepper. Mix together well. Divide in half and roll each portion into a ball, then flatten into a burger shape. Chill in a fridge to firm up the burger.

Lightly drizzle the burgers with olive oil. Add directly to a hot barbecue and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side – take care not to overcook or they will dry out and fall apart.

Meanwhile, make tzatziki in a small bowl: mix the cucumber with the Greek yogurt and remaining mint and a little salt and pepper.

To serve, place some lettuce on the bottom half of each bap, top with a little torn mint, the burger, then some tzatziki and the reserved sliced onion and the top of the bap.

 


 

Mexican Chicken BurgerMexican Chicken Burger

Serves 2 Time 20 minutes Per portion: 447 Kcal, 24g fat (4.5g saturated)

Skinless chicken breasts 2
Smoked paprika 1 tbsp
Chipotle sauce 1 tsp
Mayonnaise 2 tbsp
Streaky bacon 2 rashers
Brioche buns 2, halved
Guacamole 2 tbsp
Sweet potato chips and green salad to serve (optional)

Put the chicken between two sheets of cling film and use a rolling pin to beat it out to make it about twice the size and of an even thickness: this will help it to cook more quickly. Dust both sides of the chicken with paprika.

Lightly oil the cooking grate. Place the chicken breasts on a hot barbecue and cook for 6 to 8 minutes per side, until juices run clear.

Meanwhile, stir the chipotle sauce into the mayonnaise.

When the chicken is cooked, remove it from the barbecue and keep warm. Carefully add the bacon to the barbecue; to avoid a grease fire do not place directly over the heat, alternatively, lay the bacon on aluminium foil. Place the cut sides of the baps on the barbecue to toast them. Turn the bacon to crisp it, and remove the baps when toasted.

Slice each chicken breast into two or three pieces. To serve, spoon some mayonnaise on the bottom half of each bun. Stack the chicken on top and spoon over the guacamole. Top each with a rasher of bacon. If you like, serve with sweet potato chips and green salad.

Cook’s Tips
Instead of the guacamole, add a few slices of avocado or a slice of your favourite cheese.

The lovely design – and Dairy Diary logo – is featured on both sides.

At only £5.99 it’s an affordable treat. And wouldn’t it make a great gift for a Dairy Diary fan?
