Bonfire Night with Princes!

Bonfire Night with PrincesThe last few weeks has been such a blur here – holiday, Halloween and now we’re heading to Bonfire Night! Our local display is always on the Saturday night nearest to Guy Fawkes Night, so this means that Daddy P is working, and actually with other things we have going on at the moment it wouldn’t work so well for Monkey and I either.  So we’re off to visit friends and celebrate with them instead this year, and before we go we’ll also be celebrating Bonfire Night with Princes and their Hotdogs – a great, quick meal to warm us up before the big night.  You may remember I used some of the hotdogs last week to make Mummified Hotdogs for Halloween too!

We each have our favourite hotdog toppings – Monkey likes them with grated cheese, Daddy P likes them with Ketchup and cheese and I go for a Mexican theme – with Guacamole, Salsa and Soured Cream.

Something we might try preparing this year, for after the big display, to warm us up is Princes Corned Beef Hash:

This will serve 4 and you will need
1 x 340g can Princes Corned Beef, diced
120g unsalted butter
1 large onion, chopped
900g potatoes, boiled and diced
oil for frying
Melt 40g of unsalted butter in a frying pan and fry one large chopped onion.
Cut 340g of Princes Corned Beef into 1cm cubes and add to the pan.
Empty the mixture into a bowl, add 900g of cooked and diced potato and another 40g of butter with black pepper.
Fry in a little oil and 40g of butter and then serve – sounds scrummy.

What will you be dishing up this Bonfire Night?  What topping do you like on your hotdogs?

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.
