Five Precious Minutes

Five precious minutes oooh how I adore thee !






I've written about this before in about what you can achieve in 5 minutes , it is really more than you think. Usually my 5 precious minutes is ultimately linked to snapping away.



But what if you used that 5 minutes to tidy this ?! crazy I know Kirstie Allsop I'm sure would be spitting out her pom poms  and wagging her finely manicured nails at me. This is method in my madness is what I would like to say but alas no this is the room that every thing gets shifted to " oooh that will be useful and so on "



And every home needs a random Spanish donkey they don't remember buying .. not ..



Thankfully a myriad of affordable storage solutions came to my rescue thanks to  Camouflage Company and it was a utter dream and it was all popped into the bags within five minutes.




And what can 5 minutes of knocking up a quick oil to baste a chicken with achieve , well this .

It was quite simply ...

Ingredients 

Half a squeezed orange
1 tablespoon olive oil 
1 table white wine vinegar 
Salt
Pepper 
Preparation time ; well that would be 5 minutes.





Then baste the chicken throughout it's cooking time plus shove an onion up the nether regions of said chicken, the chicken will thank you for it I promise you.



I was kindly send the storage bags to help with my storage and I was not told to write. The recipe is my own not quite sure how the chicken felt buy hay it was tasty . The Spanish donkey is languishing in the bin RIP Pedro Donkey!

  4. I love this post! Yes, 5 minutes can bring so much. A bit of yoga breathing, a secret note to your child to find when they get in from school, a fab supper (as you have proved), as much exercise as I can muster in a day, or a text to a friend.
    ps I want your donkey!

  5. 5 minutes peace is so rare in this house I would probably just savour the silence. The chicken oil sounds good!

  15. I am a sucker for pretty storage and some pretty boxes stacked up looks so much better than just a pile of 'stuff'. I'm sure we have a Pedro Donkey somewhere round here too :-)

  17. It really is amazing what you can achieve in 5 minutes isn't it? I usually try to squeeze in way too much and end up late for the school run! Loving the retro donkey!
