I love porridge. I also love a filling breakfast. And even more than both of these two things, I love a quick breakfast.
I kept seeing #OIAJ tags, so I had to google it and with some further research I discovered that I would like to make these, ‘Alison-style’.
These are a great idea as we (in Australia) head into a Summer, I’ll be making them a lot!!!
And lovely with a up of tea…
Have you made #OIAJ?
Three things I’m loving this week are…
1. Making heaps of smoothie combinations – so yummy and so healthy!
2. Getting to the gym regularly again- am LOVING my new gym and its crèche!
3. Holidays – need I say more??
What three things are you loving this week?
Are these a yay or a nay for you? I can’t decide. I’m leaning towards a yay.
Which is your favourite (if any)?
I love anything floral. Perhaps it’s the old lady in me? I’ve seen so many beautiful floral blouses around that catch my eye. Big LOVE.
– Big W Avella Burnout tee with floral print $14.98 –
Do you love a floral blouse? Yay or Nay?
I am right into the clean eating craze and am hoping to post some yummy, healthy foods that have my own personal spin on them. I love researching on the internet and getting inspiration from others who have been there before, but I also love to make my own additions to recipes and try things that might, or might not work.
– Kale from our garden –
Husband has lots of lovely green kale growing in the back yard (along with many other beautiful fruits and veggies) and although I do think it tasted rather ordinary when just steamed, I do like it when it’s changed into a different format. One of the formats I have tried recently is to make a pesto out of it. All I can say is….YUM.
- 1/2 bunch of kale
- handful of cashews
- clove of garlic
- 1/2 lemon – juice
- 1/2 avocado
- coconut oil
– Add kale, garlic and nuts to food processor –
– Then avocado and coconut oil –
– Process until smooth –
– yum –
It’s like having a hit of goodness in the form of a condiment. We had this slathered on top of our quinoa and sesame seed-crusted chicken (that’s another successful kitchen sesh that I will share another day).
Do you have any fab kale recipes?
I have had some time away from the computer juggling part time paid work and a toddler whilst being pregnant and moving house, then a toddler and now a baby. Throughout this time away, I have yearned for the time and energy to sit and write again. I have yearned for the silence that is only interrupted by the soothing tap tap tapping that my beloved laptop makes (and the tweeting birds outside my study window).
Although I have only had minimal sewing time, I have still been baking a lot and of course, I’m still loving lots of things and trying to stay inspired by all those other awesome bloggers out there. I am filled with ideas on a daily basis, but time and energy are at their lowest points – I’m hoping from here on, they will increase, and I can make a come back to regular posts.
The biggest news that I have since I’ve last blogged, is the birth of my baby boy, Archer. He’s such a cutie and I love him to bits. I’m trying to enjoy every moment with him, but I also need to keep some interests of my own – and I’m hoping this blog will be that outlet.
Here’s some shots of him…totally cute!
Anyway, here goes. I’m hoping to also bring some new ideas into the blog – so let me know if they are favourable or not. I would love your support.
