Had a little fun with dinner tonight.
Cheesy quesadilla "hill"
Broccoli and kale dinosaurs
Peanut butter stuffed date "rock"
Strawberry "meteor" (not the one that apparently killed all the dinosaurs, just a regular old meteor 🙈)
Probably one of our last picnic lunches at the park for the year. It's getting really cold over here!
Peanut butter coffin sandwiches
Jack o lantern apple
Spooky pepper strips

🍓 Vitamin C also boosts up kid’s immunity system. Strawberry is here to serve them immense amount of Vitamin C.

Ever wondered how much water your kids should actually be drinking? Well, here is a great guide. I am constantly begging mine to drink water (they would live on milk if I let them). Here are some quick tips to encourage good hydration...💦
- Infuse their water with fresh mint, citrus, or even apple slices and cinnamon sticks
- Add frozen grapes or berries
- Use silly straws to make it fun
- Add a drop of lemon or orange essential oil
- Add a splash of flavored juice....my girls love a splash of my pineapple-peach kombucha 😉
B O O 👻 Do you celebrate Halloween where you live? The tradition seems to be getting bigger every year here in Oz!⠀
How creative are these amazing Halloween lunches in our Bento Five shared by @homeschool_mommy 🎃 👻 Thank you for sharing! 😍
Annabelle loves burgers in a bun, preferably a brioche bun because you know, this is Annabelle we are talking about here! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That said, when her cousins have wanted to go to McDonalds Annabelle would not eat a burger there, it has to be a big, juicy burger and this was the inspiration for my 'Simple Beef Burger' recipe on my new 15-20 minute meal app. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Most of the recipe I create are from stories you tell me, experiences I go through with Annabelle or recipes my friends and family tell me would be good. I love sharing my experiences with you, and hearing yours back - especially on Instagram stories where you see my daily life in real time :)
You will find this super easy burger recipe in the 'Main Meals' section of the app, links can be found in my featured stories and bio.
The most simple pasta dish.
Perfect weekend dinner!
- boil some water in a large pot (I use the kettle to speed up this bit!)
- add some pasta to the water to cook
...while the pasta cooks
- chop 1 red capsicum into small squares & slice 3/4ish of a punnet of cherry tomatoes in half
- finely chop a handful of fresh herbs (use what you have/prefer...oregano, thyme, parsley, basil) or you can use dried herbs here too...around 1 tbsp
- rinse a tin of your fav beans well with water (I used butter beans today)
- once the pasta is cooked, put everything in the saucepan & generously drizzle over some extra virgin olive oil (I often use herb infused oil for some extra yum-ness!) & mix everything together. If you have it, a squeeze of lemon juice goes nicely here too! 🍋
- transfer to a pretty bowl & put in the middle of your dinner table with side of your fav green salad so that everyone can help themselves
- I also put out nutritional yeast (which I call ‘cheese’ to the girls 😉) & hemp seeds to top the pasta too👍🏻
- et voilà...dinner is done in around 12mins! ❤️💚
Your little monster will love taking a bite of breakfast!
We topped an english muffin with scrambled eggs, and cheese and then decorated it with olives, mozzarella, and pretzels. (See first comment for more info)
Here are some of Raffy’s meals over the last week. He’s had a few random dishes where I’ve been using up leftovers, and a couple of finger food meals when he’s had a larger meal at another point during the day.
👶🏼 Most of the time Raffy’s meals are about simplicity. I work (a lot) and I also have a house to keep in order, friends and family to keep happy etc etc etc and so I don’t have time to make him lavish meals every day. When I do it’s a bonus!
🍲It’s so good when he has a long nap in the afternoon (which he’s starting to do more recently) as this leaves me with and hour or two to actually create something a little more exciting!
⏱But more often than not his meals are bish bash bosh - I still always aim to make them healthy and balanced though, to ensure he’s getting enough energy and nutrients to help his tiny little body to grow and develop properly.
🔜Swipe across to see the selection from this week which includes:
1.) Mushroom stroganoff with basmati rice
2.) Veggie finger foods with eggs and hummus
3.) A rare meal for Raffy of cream cheese, oatcakes and smoked salmon (he really doesn’t have that often, only this week as I had some in the fridge) and some veggie sticks
4.) Wholemeal pasta with chopped kale, avocado slices, Parmesan cheese and a little EV olive oil
5.) Sage and butternut squash risotto with broccoli florets
6.) Wholemeal pasta with homemade tomato sauce and chickpeas and a little grated cheese
7.) A super light meal of cream cheese, oatcakes, smoked salmon and mixed peas/beans
8.) Lunch out and about of 1/2 a sweet potato, hummus dip and vegetable fingers
9.) Rye bread with scrambled egg and tomatoes with a little paprika and some avocado fingers
10.) Omelette (may have been last week?!) with mixed veggies and sweet potato chunks
🌟 This week may not have been quite as varied as some other weeks but I tend to try and vary as much as I can whilst using up bits I have in the fridge.
✅ I hope these meal ideas are useful for inspo - the stroganoff and the risotto were, of course, the meals that took the longest to put together and the rest probably took max of around 10mins
❓Feel free to send any questions
“The itsy bitsy spider 🕷 climbed up the spicy wings,
Down came the sauce and washed the spider out,
Out came the spice and dried up all the sauce,
So the itsy bitsy spider climbed up the wings again.... “
Chicken wings are always the best party food, for both adults and kids. This is a mild spicy version of the bbq wings as I marinated the wings with bbq sauce and paprika. Dipping sauce is a mix of Siracha chilli sauce and mayonnaise. The wings and spicy sauce are a good match for the Halloween theme and are definitely an attractive treat for your children and friends. Try it out!
How to make:
Chicken wings: Marinate wings (12 pcs) overnight with 2 Tbsp bbq sauce, 2 tsp paprika powder, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp ground black pepper and 1 Tbsp flour. Bake at 200C for 12 minutes.
Dipping sauce: 1 Tbsp Siracha chilli suace + 1 Tbsp mayonnaise
What's in Ian's Bowl today?
Fusilli and Pasta Sauce with Cauliflower, Green Peas and Carrots
Menu of today shall be pasta and I decided to use my last bottle of @haruplate No-Eye-Deer tomato sauce with Shitake mushroom.
I've parboiled some cauliflower, green peas and carrots and did a quick stir-fry, with a dash of light soy sauce (quarter of a teaspoon?). Popped them into the sauce and added a teaspoon of @sghomemade Sakura Chicken Powder and half teaspoon of sugar to balance the acidity of the tomato sauce. Cook for 2 to 3 mins and you are done. Now you can add this to any pasta of your choice.
Can this be eaten on its own? I think you can. Add more vegetables like potatoes and it can be a hearty dish on its own.
Note: If you are uncomfortable to add soy sauce/ sugar, you can omit them out.
