What’s cooking Thursday?

Yes, it’s already Thursday again, can you believe it?? The weeks are flying past, too fast for me, and before you know it, it will be Christmas! Yes, I really did just say that. Gah, wish I could just press pause on life for a few minutes to catch my breath… < Continue reading

School lunch ideas Monday

 

We are on our last week of school lunches before kids are on school holidays, so here’s a few ideas to get you through the week!

This is what they have had over the last week: Continue reading

Friday night, no pizza?

So, it’s Friday today. The school week is at an end (notice I didn’t say working week – the weekends are more work than a weekday!). Tonight is relax in front of the tv night, so that is always fun. The kids have already agreed upon a movie that they all want to watch. Even better. No arguing later about which movie they will choose. Master B often pulls out the ‘I’m the only boy boo hoo’ card when it comes to movies. Being the oldest also, means he wants to watch things that aren’t always appropriate for his younger sisters. But family movie night’s are just that, something appropriate for the whole family.

We are struggling a bit with our food journey. Hubby is struggling with the lack of (good) bread. I am too. I love bread. Really love it. We’ve tried gluten free bread but it’s still quite refined and it isn’t awesome. To top it off, his psoriasis doesn’t seem to be clearing up. Not sure if we should jump in and go the full auto immune protocol for the next 30 days or not… Anyone out there have experience with Guttate psoriasis and the autoimmune protocol? There is so much conflicting information out there, it’s easy to get confused.  I’m trying my best to support hubby, Continue reading

What’s cooking Thursday?

Things have been quiet on the blog this week, thanks to sleepless nights and grizzly children, which lead to an inability to write anything comprehendible. But today is Thursday, and it’s time t think about what I am cooking tonight. Usually I try to cook something that will also serve as leftovers for Saturday lunch. This weekend however, is full of birthday parties, so Saturday lunch and dinner are taken care of. Woot woot!

Last night, I had a bit of a disaster in the kitchen. Hubby texted me late afternoon to say that he didn’t get time to stop for lunch, he was starving, and what was for dinner? My response was, brown rice arancini balls with roast veg and guacamole (plus we always make a salad). He replied, nice. Great, so I was happy that he wasn’t put off with the idea of dinner, I hadn’t really prepped it yet because I had run out of brown rice, so had to wait for Miss O to wake before I could pop up to the supermarket and grab some. >

Do you live on a neat street?

When I was a child, I had a book called ‘The big orange splot’. It was all about a ‘neat street’ where all the houses looked the same. Until one day, when a seagull flew over Mr Plumbean’s house carrying a tin of orange paint, and drops the tin on his house. It goes on to say that this starts a chain of events which leads to all the houses being individualized to reflect the dreams and lives of the people living in them. Continue reading

School lunch ideas

I have been a school mum for 6 years, and something I have always struggled with is school lunches. Something nutritious, something that will not leave them STARVING at 3.30 pick up and something kid approved. Doesn’t seem that hard does it? But, every night I stand in my kitchen staring into the pantry and fridge wondering what I can put in their lunch boxes Continue reading
