There are some classic recipes that never seem to get old. They continue to be as popular today as the day they were created. The smell that permeates through the house when baking these classics trigger those child-hood memories of visiting Nanna after school or weekends. Welcomed with a warm yet deliciate hug, a feeling of uncondtional love and a sense of home. Always a freshly baked cake, biscuits or slice on the kitchen bench just incase visitors pop around for a visit. Its amazing how smells connect us with deep emotions and memories something we take a little for granted now a days. As that saying goes we need to stop and smell the roses. Appreciate the little things in life.
It was prefect weather however for baking up some easy kids lunch treats seeing as they are home for nearly two months I will have to have the pantry and fridge packed to the rafters. My boys have bottomless pits as stomachs, they are always hungry so having healthy homemade snacks at home is a must or I hear the ever so repeative nagging of “Mum I’m Hungry!”
It’s back to school time!
It was the first week back of term this week QLD and for the rest soon approaching. There was mixed feelings sending them on their merry way this week was a combination of excitement but also unwillingness to get back into the hectic routine. The hardest part of the holidays for me is always trying to keep the kids entertained. With three active boys can be some what difficult at times to keep up with their incessant amount of energy and boredom kicks in very quickly, which soon turns into mischief, fighting, whinging and tears.
