Best bit about back-to-school

Well we've been back at school now for nearly a month and already we're into a routine of last minute panics and morning chaos!!  There seems so much to remember - pe kits, music, instruments, homework, lunches, glasses and cookery ingredients.  Actually the last one is something that seems to get remembered as my youngest is turning into quite a keen cook.

This weeks offering from school was scones - they were scrummy with some butter and homemade strawberry jam.  The only improvement would be the addition of some cornish clotted cream.

Boosted by this success he decided tonight that he'd like to help with dinner.  We've had a glut of tomatoes in the garden that have been ripening indoors rather faster than we can eat them.  So we decided to make a roasted tomato sauce to have with pasta.  I gave instructions and Will did the chopping and cooking.

It was delicious - think I might have my very own Jamie Oliver :)
