Omg where has this week gone! I can’t believe it’s Friday already. I am SO snowed under at work and have only just caught up with myself from Easter. I am now working on 5 projects at the same time and my desk looks like a bomb has hit it!!! So I am so thankful to be at home with a nice dinner cooking, courtesy of my bf and a great weekend ahead. I’m going to the cinema tomorrow to see Kick Ass – it sounds great – and then in the evening we are going out for dinner with my family for my mum’s birthday. Then Sunday will be relaxing with a lot of great eats. I’ll try to take a few piccies but my family don’t know I do a food blog so they may give me weird looks!!

So, onto another great eat, Sausage Bake. I have adapted this recipe a lot to make it work for us. Be warned, there is a lot of cheese in it, three different cheeses actually. I love cheese so this isn’t a problem for me! If you want a healthy dish, this probably isn’t it!!

The three cheeses - Parmesan, Mozzarella and Cheddar

It is a great dish that will feed a family of 4 or two greedy people like me and my bf! You can use whatever sausages you want but we like to use Pork ones. It’s so difficult to have just one portion!!
