Things have been hectic around here. Miss O who has been waking a lot lately, has been sleeping through again. However, I’ve had my other kids sick, so they have all been waking up instead. Isn’t that always the way? Throw into the mix, my sister and I have been busy recipe testing for our little business, and a school production for two nights in a row. So this week is a bit of a write off, hopefully next week will be a much more chilled out week!
I’m sitting here watching Please Marry My Boy. It’s hilarious! So if I wander off on a tangent, sorry, I love trashy tv! After a long day with Miss E home sick, a visit to the doctor (waiting for aaaages), eating a terrible lunch of corn chips and coffee left me feeling a bit flat and unenergenic (jeez, no wonder!!) I decided I needed a quick, easy crowd pleaser from ingredients that I had on hand. Enter stage left, Beef Kofta, served with tzitzki, rocket salad and pita bread.
Wow! (By default, lol) I was awarded the prestigious Liebster award, from a travelling blog called Travelling Macs. I’ve seen this award on many a blog, and now I am proud to say that I can pin a badge to my home page too!
The Liebster, as it is fondly termed, is passed around the blogging circuit to bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The word “Liebster” apparently has German origins, and according to dictionist is translated to: sweetheart, beloved person and darling. Continue reading

San Choy Bow
It was all very exciting here yesterday as this recipe was featured on the baby hints and tips website. But for those who don’t follow us on facebook, I thought I’d post this recipe today, as it is a great family recipe. It’s a crowd pleaser, while being friendly to the budget.
Serves 15 generous servings
I love beef mince. It is such a versatile ‘cut’ of meat. It is cheap, and defrosts quickly when you have left meal preparations to the last minute. I have lots of mince recipes that I will be sharing with you over the coming posts, and the one I am starting with is San Choy Bow.
When I first made this, I wasn’t sure my kids would eat it. It is loaded with vegetables, and sweet Asian sauces, which my kids don’t normally go for. But surprisingly, every time I have made this, they all declare it as their favourite meal ever!
