Soul food for wintery weekends – a bowl of homemade French onion soup and chunky slices of bread smeared thickly with butter.  We ate Miracle Bread from Jane’s Handmade Bread bought at Abbey Ley’s farmers market spread with white goat’s butter.


I thought it was about time I shared with you a fabulous new local food business who produce fantastic pies. 

I first met Neil from The Great North Pie Company at a farmer’s market at Abbey Ley’s last summer when I had a stall to advertise the local food awards I was running as a volunteer for CPRE Cheshire.  A relatively new business on the local Cheshire food scene, Neil and his family set up in 2008 baking delicious pies using quality local produce.

The Great North Pie Company were a runner-up in our CPRE Cheshire ‘Buy Local’ Food Awardsand were a winner of the far more prestigious NW Fine Foods awards.  On Sunday I bought a delicious beef and potato pie (with truffle oil!! a little non-local luxury we’re all allowed to indulge in!) for N and I to share for lunch.

We devoured the pie, with its melt-in-the-mouth beef that flakes apart into tender strands, along with hunks of Miracle Bread, also bought from the farmer’s market from Jane’s Handmade Bread, smeared with milky white goat’s butter.  A truly scrumptious local meal.

My Latest Instagram Snaps

This is really happening. We are moving - we are starting out on an adventure that we hope will move us closer to whatever it is that we dream of.

As well as moving home I am also moving Instagram 'home'. For a while now I've been thinking about how much of Tilly's life I share publicly and how she may feel about it one day. But I love the friends and community (you!) I have made here. 
I decided I didn't want to disappear completely but I do want to share less of my sweet Tilly to keep her life a little more private. I don't want to loose all you lovely friends so I hope you will follow me on my new account @charlie_eattheearth (I've changed the name of this account, which I will make private in the next day.) Having a baby has really made me think and question how my choices on social media now will affect her as she grows older. I hope you all understand and that you'll click on my new profile and continue to follow me at @charlie_eattheearth as we embark on our next adventure! Am I a terrible mummy for stealing Tilly's free bagel that she was given at the bakery? :) I'm watching Tilly drink water from a glass for the first time and feeling like the proudest mum ever! (and taking a million pictures) That's 'what I'm doing now' Chloe @bareblooms :)
