Going Back To Work: Easy Midweek Recipes

Back to Work Easy Midweek Recipes Dolmio

I’m always after quick and easy recipes that the whole family will eat, and with me returning to work at the end of March I’ve been worrying quite a lot about keeping up with all of the fresh, home cooked meals we have been enjoying. So when Dolmio sent us the ingredients for a quick midweek spaghetti Bolognese I was intrigued to see if it would work for us, taking into account all of our likes, dislikes, and dietary needs.

I didn’t really get the whole Mum squad thing, and I didn’t feel like I belonged in this new world. A big part of me, if I’m honest, didn’t really want to fit into the world of motherhood. That’s not to say I didn’t want to be a Mum, I just didn’t want to redefine myself entirely around motherhood. Continue reading “Motherhood: I Don’t Belong”
