Hope you have had a fab weekend!
I had a moment of reflection this week that I wanted to share with you. Wednesday night, I was so absolutely exhausted by the time I got home and it was dinner time. Henry, my son recently had surgery and is on a soft diet so I was making some tuna patties but at that moment, I couldn't think of anything worse than cooking. I just wanted to sit on the couch and relax. AND I LOVE COOKING! It was a great reminder as to why we do what we do! Who wants to be exhausted and feel they have to cook at the end of the day. Even if you enjoy cooking, it can be a drain, right?
At the heart of the matter, I want to help people at the end of their busy day. I want you to enjoy your time with your family or do the things you enjoy rather than get stressed about what to cook for dinner.
I know there are lots of people out there (particularly mums') trying to do it all but please don't feel you have to. Get the support you need to make your life easier. It doesn't mean you are any less of a mum, partner, friend, or person. It just means it will take the pressure of you to enjoy your life more. Support can come in many ways, giving yourself the time to do that pilates session, time to laugh with a close friend, have a helping hand around the house or have meals provided for you. Find out what you need and action it. It will make your day!
Each month we give a gift to one of our 'Weekly Value Bundle' subscribers. It's our little way of saying 'we love you' and 'thanks for letting us cook for you'! Super excited to be sharing the love in the form of a stunning batch# ceramic platter valued at $185 this month. I found this month's gift at Jack+Sarah at Hahndorf. It's worth the drive if you haven't popped in to the store yet. You're bound to walk away with something you love. Batch# are made in Sydney and each ceramic is a 'one off', not two are the same. So they are really special and I am sure will get you in the mood for outdoor entertaining! This month's winner is Sally Hicks. Congratulations Sally. I hope you enjoy your gift.
Each month we also give one of our newsletter subscribers a $50 gift card. It's our way of saying thanks for keeping up to date with all things happening at The Family Cook. This month's winner is Sam Horrocks. Congratulations Sam!
Enjoy the rest of your week! If there is anything we can do to make your day brighter, please let me know!
