This October Why Not …?

Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month – look out for events in your area. Be sure to visit Asda for their ‘Tickled Pink’ range, including T-shirts starting from £6, with £1 from each purchase going to their ‘Tickled Pink’ charities. Also be on the lookout for Avon Pink Ribbon Products.

Revamp your autumn wardrobe with soft-to-the-touch fabrics in jewel and berry shades. I recommend 'Yes' Supersoft Skinny Jeans (£19.99 at New Look), which are super snugly to wear and come in a selection of warm, autumnal shades. Matalan is also worth a trip for their seriously soft, cotton modal long-sleeve tops (£5), great for layering with their snug knitted cardis and jumpers.

Indulge in some cake (in moderation, remember those skinny jeans). I love Marks and Spencer’s range of sponge rolls (2 for £2), particularly the Peach Melba and Cappuccino Chocolate varieties. Have a slice with a cuppa, or serve as a dessert with custard. Yum!

Use leftover chicken from your Sunday Roast to make “Henhouse Pie’. Soften a chopped onion in olive oil, add a dessertspoonful of plain flour and brown, and then gradually stir in half pint of vegetable stock (vegetable Oxo is fine). Add chopped leftover chicken and leftover veg too if you fancy. Simmer for 15 minutes before transferring to an ovenproof dish. Top with mashed potato (home-made or ready-made) and brown in the oven for 15-20 minutes, Gas 5, 190ÑC.
