I was lucky enough to be chosen to join in on the #instaweanteam challenge on Instagram this week. Every week a group of great bloggers choose an ingredient and come up with a recipe each on that specific ingredient.
This week was MANGO week. Which was perfect because I absolutely adore mangos.
I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately. We’ve all been sick in the Good Baby Kitchen household. The cold weather has gotten to us and we all came down with a bad case of the flu. I’m still sick and was ordered by the doctor to stay in bed for the entire week or risk pneumonia and other secondary infections.
Today has been the first day I even had the energy to sit in front of the computer. Albeit from my bed (thank goodness for laptops). I officially never want to see a tissue again.
I went into Molly’s childcare last week (pre-sickness) to help with some of the cooking and the wonderful chef there and I came up with this spiced rice pudding that we served to the kids for afternoon tea.
Lest we forget.
Today is Anzac Day in Australia. A day that we remember Australians who served and died in all wars.
The 25th of April also marks the day in which the first major military action was fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during WWI and the landing of Australian and New Zealand soldiers at Gallipoli in Turkey.
This year marks the 100th year anniversary of that landing in 1915.
I know it might seem like a weird combination but this sushi is a real hit in our household. It’s a great lunchtime or snack option.
Sushi is a perfect first finger food and an easy way to fill little tummies. This version is made without seaweed and you can add other fruit (or savoury) combinations to suit your tastes.
Sushi also isn’t that hard to make, so don’t be scared off! It can be made and on the table within 30 minutes and that includes the cooking of the rice.
We had Molly’s birthday party on the weekend!! I still can’t believe she’s one!
I love big parties and the buzz of friends and family enjoying good food and cheer. We had a big bunch of people over to our place for a BBQ to celebrate.
One of my creations for the party was this healthy sugar free fairy bread. It’s so simple to make and also is a great snack for morning or afternoon tea anytime of the year (who needs a party as an excuse!).
