During schooling from home (thank goodness that is over!!) I tried to get the kids into the kitchen and help make their own snacks and help make tea. We managed to get a few things made together.
I taught myself how to make focaccia. This is the best recipe I have tried. So good.
TRTLMT Banana Choc Chip biscuits from the kids cook a long were a huge hit and semi healthy. They also made an oat apple slice and ANZAC biscuits that day.
The 2 ingredient homemade naan bread from Healthy Mummy are super easy and really yummy. We had ours the same night we made this delicious green chicken curry. So good and definitely making it into the recipe book.
What about you? What have you been cooking?
Me? Well it’s interesting. Schooling the kids from has been ok. First week was great, full of enthusiasm. Second week, not so much. School holidays have descended into chaos HAHAHA
We ‘go back’ to Term 2 at the end of the month. The kids will be learning online. Can’t wait to see how it goes.
Mentally. Coping. Just. Missing mum terribly but so glad she’s not trying to survive through this. Just wish she was here so I could talk things through with her or just give her a hug.
I’m trying to keep myself busy. Crafting. Baking. Working from home. Hanging out with crafters and planners virtually. Playing D&D online with our friends who live in the same town. Man that is really strange.
Sleeping in. Playing with our 3 kitties (we’ve adopted 2 of our fosters) and our current foster. Enjoying the days of sunshine. Loving the colder days and curling up like a cat in front of the fire.
Meet Logan & Luna. Our new fur babies. Cola hates them. Actually Cola hates all the fosters so far. She’s old so I’ll forgive her. She just sleeps most of the day now and hides from the kittens.
How are you all going? Coping with lockdown/isolation? What are you doing to stay sane/entertained?
Much love to you all xx
One of the great things about staying home is we’re getting to try out a heap of new recipes and are introducing the kids to some basic recipes.
This week we’ve made
- our own butter (in the Thermomix),
- Apple cider using the abundance of apples of our tree
- Milo brownies
- fruit leather and dried apple slices
- banana cake
- chocolate cupcakes
Next week is going to be Easter themed baking in our house. Looking forward to it. Hot cross buns and Easter biscuits *yum*
