🍅🥦🍝 So bloody good!! Not the prettiest picture, but holy shit it was good. AND was a quick after swimming jobby. I made the meatballs while the kids were at school. Veges are already prepped and ready to cook. Sauce was some Homemade Tomato and Basil soup with a little beef stock added. Brown, blanch and boil and it was ready in less than 30mins 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻
🎂🎂🎂 A cute little black and white themed cake smash cake for one of our little buddy’s First Birthday last week.
The cooler months are coming!! It’s been a while since I made a risotto. Biiiiitch it was good!! (Kaylin didn’t agree, Kaylin never agrees 🙄)
We survived!! Back to school!! 🎉 🎉 🎉 Started filling the baking tins for lunches with Shortbread and Jam drops...perfect for after the rainy school pickup too 😒
Schools almost back!! Who knew I’d be waiting so intently for a Monday 😂😂😂 In all honesty, I’ve quite enjoyed having both the kids home these holidays. But still a few days to go...things could change 😂😂
🍕 🍕 🍕 Make your own pizza! The kids love helping with dinner....sometimes it’s a lot less “help” than they think it is 😂😂 but I can actually leave them to it when we do this. Note: pizza is really hard to make look good....but that’s ok coz it was fucking 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻 Parent pizzas were Tomato, basil and bacon Pumpkin, spinach and bacon Not bad for leftovers 😏
The babes were off to Nana and Pops place for a sleep over yesterday so we used the lolly cake ingredients that have been staring at me for the last week and made some to take over. I don’t know about you but I can’t help but scoff lolly cake, so it was the perfect reason for me to get some of it out of the house! 😂😂 I also always make it into a slice rather than a log, that way I can make smaller portion sizes...the kids don’t notice! The look of concentration on their little faces is bloody great 😂😂
🍌 🍰 School holiday activities have been a go go!! We started off with banana cake....with all those leftover bananas that my kids said they would eat and didn’t...you know....that boomerang fruit that comes back in lunch boxes every day. 😒😒😒 Maybe they planned it. I’d much rather eat banana cake than a banana 😂😂😂 maybe that’s why there’s no eating action shot.....it was gone pretty fast 😂🤷🏻♀️
☕️ 🍷 Let the school holidays begin! I wish you all luck. May the odds be ever in your favour. See you on the other side. Help! 😂🤣😳😳😳
Double duty dinners! 🍗🌽🥬🧀 Chicken Nachos one night which resulted in leftovers. Rather than throwing it away or leaving it in the fridge and then forgetting about it and throwing it away, I split it into ziplocks and froze it assuming I’d use it as single serve nachos for the kids on lazy nights. Turns out it makes a bloody delicious, kid approved creamy tomato, chicken pasta!! I literally cooked some pasta, fried some bacon and added the rest of the ingredients to heat. Tossed through the pasta and sprinkled with extra cheese. Both kids ate their whole bowl! (Big deal, they never both eat all their dinner....hardly ever have one eat it all 🙄🙄) Also, one healthy food change I’ve made is using less corn chips and topping up with iceberg lettuce instead. 👌🏻
Obsessed with their new baby cousin Cody Connor. Mean dad won’t let them have one at home 😉😂
My IG feed might be full of yummy food, baking and cakes, but, after getting pregnant with Kaylin I found out I had gestational diabetes. It was pretty well controlled with her and I didn’t have to start using insulin until about 30+ weeks. I was lucky enough that it went away after giving birth. I then got it again with Cohen (was totally expected this time) but had to start insulin much earlier than last time. It also went away but my blood tests showed I was “pre diabetic”, so my blood sugars were high, but not enough to be classed as diabetic....that changed about 1.5-2 years ago and I was put on Metformin to control them. I had my yearly test to check what my blood sugars were doing 2 weeks ago and was told they were so good I was advised to stop taking my medication!!!! I am fucking stoked to say the least. I am far from a perfect diabetic. But the changes I have/will be making are making a difference! Even small changes can make a big difference. More blood tests in about 3 months to see if they stay good enough to keep off the meds 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻
Cake cake cake!! 🎂🎂🎂 My baby niece had her 21st party over the weekend and as always I was on cake duty. Vanilla Cake filled with Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream and Lemon Curd. This one was waaaaay left field to what I would normally do and I thought I had completely fucked up when I was icing it. As I do every time, I judge it before it’s finished 😂🤦🏻♀️ She came up pretty cute in the end. I was going to post something else today, but I think this is more fitting as I got my @magnoliakitchen book today! Thanks for the inspo Bets! can’t wait to learn a trick or two!
