Local Is Lovely Workshop Recap

We drove the windy Blue Mountains road and arrived at Kimbri Farm. A pink hue filled the sky, gentle petals covering the ground, the cherry blossom jaw dropping with its beauty. The photographic opportunities didn’t end there. Everywhere I turned there were country cottage pockets of beauty. The Local is Lovely workshop was such a fantasticContinue reading “Local Is Lovely Workshop Recap”

30 Things I Loved About Being 30!

It’s my birthday today, we’re headed out for breakfast and then off to Wollangarra for their Open Day for the weekend. It’s been a big year, it feels as though each year is getting bigger than the one before it and it’s wonderful! So here is 30 things I loved about being 30 (in noContinue reading “30 Things I Loved About Being 30!”

8 Meals from My Pantry

This fortnight is a weird one. We’re away for most of the two weekends, and we’re cooking for friends on the two Wednesdays. So I thought instead of doing a big grocery shop, I’d just grab some bits for those meals when we’re cooking for friends and for the rest we’d just try and useContinue reading “8 Meals from My Pantry”

Meal Planning – Hipcook App

The next fortnight is a strange one for meal planning. Jay and I are both away, separately, for 2 nights.

I’ll be taking a slow cooker primal/paleo meal with us to share withContinue reading “Meal Planning – Hipcook App”

Cauliflower Soup with Chorizo Croutons

I was so relieved to sit down to a bowl of this delicious comforting cauliflower soup for lunch today. I crisped up the last of the chorizo croutons in the fry pan and let out a big sigh as I nestled into the couch. You see this morning, I dropped my iPhone in my friendsContinue reading “Cauliflower Soup with Chorizo Croutons”

Keeping Frugal In The Kitchen

I wrote about my favourite ways to use up stale bread recently, and that got me thinking about all the ways that I try to be frugal in the kitchen. We are quite careful with our budget and I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, mostly because I love it but also soContinue reading “Keeping Frugal In The Kitchen”

4 Things To Do With Stale Bread

I hate to waste food, as I’m sure you know by now. If I bake a huge amount of bread, I give it away. I use what I can in the kitchen, then things go to the freezer, or maybe it’ll go to the rabbit, the worms or the chooks. We don’t waste bread, soContinue reading “4 Things To Do With Stale Bread”

Meal Plan – Road Tripping

I wrote about how we meal plan our way not too long ago, and even since then things have changed. I’ve started planning meals every second Wednesday night or Thursday morning, prior to going grocery shopping. As you can imagine this not only saves time, but also saves heaps of money and waste. I thoughtContinue reading “Meal Plan – Road Tripping”
