Fresh tomatoes

I saw some very nice fresh tomatoes at the market today.  With such heat, I felt like making a fresh bloody mary and perhaps my slow juicer would do the job.  I put the tomatoes through the juicer and it was not what I expected.  Instead a thick tomato puree came out and so I changed my drink to a cold tomato soup.  Extremely refreshing for this weather.

Late meals

Working late doesnt mean you have to have leftovers,  instant noodles or takeaways.  All you need is a small rice cooker and fresh food.  It only took 15 minutes to make this.

Making Breakfast

To help kids eat healthily doesn't require a book. It does require some fun.  Leeanne wanted to make breakfast today and so her first task was to write out what she wants in her oatmeal.  Then she helped cut up all the vegetables, including the onions.  It doesnt matter if they cry a bit, as they will learn that once its cooked, they turn sweet.
