🍓🍞🥓 A good Sunday breaky to start the day! French toast, berry compote, crispy bacon, whipped cream and maple syrup 👌🏻👌🏻 We don’t eat like this often, usually only on someone’s birthday. But when we do, we do it well. And I figured after a week of being stuck in the house with a kid with chicken pox....I bloody deserve it 😂
After a few requests here’s the recipe for Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken. As I always do... big batch! This will probably be enough for 3 decent meals and a couple of rolls of sushi. I’ll split it all into snaplock bags, lay it flat and freeze for easy meals. Sushi, rice bowls or use as the meat for a stir fry. ✌🏻✌🏻
My 3 loves 💜💚💙 All equally pains in my ass for different reasons. But all the loves of my life. Happy Valentines Day!
Last function done for a few weeks! Little sisters baby shower was a success! Grazing table came up amazing! And wee cake came up good too! Chocolate cake was requested so it was layered with dark chocolate ganache and Berry and cherry compote.
8 years ago one of my best friends and my sister threw me a baby shower to celebrate baby Kaylin that was going to make an appearance in a month. This weekend coming I get to throw my sister a baby shower for her little boy due the day before Kaylin. And this weekend just been we celebrated the same besties wedding in Goose Bay, Kaikoura. Literally only a couple of snaps from the wedding....I think I speak for everyone that was there when I said we were having way to much fun!
I thought school had gone back... Jokes on me! Not in our house! Both kids stayed home today, Kaylin woke up with about 6 spots looking like chicken pox! And of course, if she has them, Cohen will probably be contagious too! Buuuuuut so far she still only has the same spots. I guess we’ll know tomorrow morning if she’s got more or not 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ Have kept them busy with some arts and crafts (or arfs and cwafs as Cohen calls them ) Wish me luck. I need all the luck 😂😂
🍗🥬🥦🥕 Imagine having this for dinner 🤤🤤 Asian style poached chicken salad with crispy noodles. So refreshing on a 30+ degree day! (Too bad its not tonight’s dinner 😂🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️)
🍷 Have a bottle of wine you didn’t finish over the weekend? (not me by the way 😂🤦🏻♀️🍾🥂🍹🍷) Pour it into ice cube trays and freeze. Pop em out and use in your cooking. Or use a couple next time you make punch, look how pretty they are!
He’s laughing at me coz I got Kindy’s start date wrong....😂😂 but we made it there on time! Lil guy had his first full day at kindy! Shit I missed him! He’s come home fuuucking filthy but so happy, super talkative and can’t stop cuddling his sister and I 😫🥰 I’m so glad we changed him from preschool to kindy last year, I feel like he’s absolutely thriving. I’ve even had friends and family saying how much better his speech has gotten and I’ve seen first hand how confident he’s gotten knowing what he can do physically (😳 loves to give me a heart attack or 2) Thinking about the the freaking out I did when we were transferring him now 🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️ But it was all outta love. If I’m freaking out about anything, let it be my kids.
When Travis works late is when I realise how much easier it is to get dinner on the table when I meal prep. A few salad ingredients, a packet of wraps and chicken tenders from the freezer that I had already marinated in garlic, herbs and oil. I let the kids make their own too....look at old mate Cohens face....then look at his plate 😂😂😂🥬🥗🥬🥗🥗🥬 They both ate all of theirs, Kaylin even had a second! Another simple summer meal and the kids love them!
Less of a Ginger Crunch and more of a Chewy Oat Ginger slice. I feel like the icing could’ve done with a bit more ginger, but the kids were happy the way it was sooo 🤷🏻♀️ But definitely not up to Travs double thickness, super gingery icing standards 😂😂 can’t win them all!!!
Apparently it’s World Popcorn day! 🍿🍿🍿 I have been a huge fan of this Popcorn brand for ages! This one is quite often in our cupboards for sweet and salty treat. I managed to get my hands on some of the new Cinnamon Caramel flavour when we were on holiday.... 🤤🤤🤤 next level of deliciousness!!! I haven’t found any at home yet so if you find it, buy it! (And also tell me where it is in Christchurch so I can buy the rest 😂😂) @nzkettlekorn
🥩🍚🥬🥦 Asian Style Beef on pan fried vege and brown rice. Mum hack: Cut and marinate the meat, store in containers or snaplock bags and pop in the freezer. Pull it out the night before and you just have to deal with the sides 👍🏻👌🏻
Had plans to go for a day trip to Akaroa today, it’s the last day of Travs holidays so we thought we’d do something fun together! Coupley kids woke up “sick” didn’t they. Kaylin woke up with a sore tummy and shaking. And Cohen woke up with a sore tummy then vomited water when he got up. Poor kids... But turns out it was just thy were over hungry coz the little brats didn’t eat their dinner lastnight!!! They haven’t stopped eating since 😶😶 But I’m pretty sure they all (including Travis) have enjoyed a day on the couch watching Netflix (mumma even got a nap 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻)
💐🌿🌸🌿Floral Friday?! Lemon syrup cake with lemon cream cheese icing and decorated with flowers and thyme from the garden and lemon slices. Super simple and pretty as can be
