Review: Local press

After trying out Eighty Twenty Food in Braddon, as part of my 'eating out with a toddler' series, my friend Caddie from LeBeauty Lounge recommended that I try out Local Press in Kingston. Seeing as it was a beautiful spring day in Canberra, I thought that I would take Mr Moo out and about to try the new cafe.

Recipe: Basa fishcakes

Here is another super quick meal to prepare in the spring time that appeases toddlers and adults alike. Using the extremely reasonably priced basa fillet - these fishcakes will have you thinking 'Why did you ever purchase your toddler frozen fish fingers in the first place?'

Motherhood: we have a new arrival

If you missed it on social media - we had the suprise arrival of your second son on the 25th. This means that I'll be taking a short break from blogging, but it doesn't mean that there will be radio silence on the blog! I've got a few scheduled posts this week (which I have written) and then I have some guest bloggers for a couple of weeks.

Recipe: Fetta and artichoke frittata

It's spring time - and actually starting to feel like spring time here in Canberra… #canbrrr! So I thought it was the perfect opportunity to make these light and delicious frittatas. Mr Moo loves eggs and so these frittatas appeal to both toddlers and adults alike.

Review: Eighty Twenty Food

Have you heard of Eighty Twenty Food? It's one of the newest cafes on the Canberra foodie scene and I hit it up the other day for my 'eating out with a toddler series' - it makes cafe number seven. Hopefully, I will make all ten cafes prior to baby number two arriving, as I think negotiating cafe eating with a toddler and a newborn in the first 10 weeks is a little presumptuous.

Recipe: inside my cupboard soup

It's always nice to have a dinner that can be cooked up at a moment's notice - using ingredients that you can keep in your cupboard. This is an awesome vegetarian 'cupboard' soup that can be 'beefed' up with a little grilled salmon. And you know what, husbands and toddlers alike LOVE it!

Recipe: Peri Peri delicious chicken

I was sent a delicious box of wonderful treats the other day by Pureharvest - I was a little bit excited to say the least, as I had seen all of their wonderful products being tried and tested at Problogger (which I couldn't attend as I was too pregnant to fly). Now I have an awesome range of their products to try - but the first thing I have opened is their organic olive oil to make my peri peri delcious chicken.

Life: why I want to punch Clive Palmer in the face

As you know, I'm pretty pregnant now. Nap times are so important to me because a) I can complete a task without Mr Moo destroying my work and b) I can also take a nap. My precious nap time was corrupted the other day when my father-inlaw came to let me know that Clive Palmer said we are going to be invaded by the Chinese and therefore have to move to Croatia.

Recipe: Mexican lasagne

So I'm on the Mexican bandwagon again - as it appears to be great food that a toddler will eat. When you don't make things too spicy, Mexican contains a lot of Mr Moo's favourite foods - rice, grated cheese, steamed corn, chicken, avocado, tortillas… Put all that together and I'm pretty happy with the meal that he has devoured!
