This week's links ...

Pork buns

1. We made pork buns last week. We were all home in the afternoon, we had leftover roast pork that had already done quite a few lunchbox sandwiches, and I wanted to do something a little different to celebrate the end of a long running dispute. I ended up with about half the meat left over after making the buns and I felt they did need more meat in them. If I do make them again I'll make sure I force more meat into the buns.

2. The Week in Texts. With a bit of tweaking would make a change in the project life album.

3.  This week I tried a new slow cooker recipe Hot and Spicy Braised Peanut Chicken which was a winner.

4. DIY wood base terrariums.

5. Free guided journalling pages.

Family Bonding


A jet of water shot in the face from about 20cm? That's what we call a special father-son moment.

This week's links ...

It's hot and windy here today. I've had a virus this week and am now on antibiotics and not feeling that special but I did take The Big Girl out this morning for a successful shopping trip to buy a dress for her social that's coming up soon ... looks good and on special which brought it well into our price range. For the rest of the weekend I must do some writing, there is a basketball game this afternoon and Swimming Club Sprint Champs for The Little Girl and The Boy, but thought I'd post some links here while I have some lunch and get my head around what I need to write ...

1. Homemade miracle cleaner ... useful for The Boy's cricket whites?

2. The kids don't mind a bit of vegetarian and I've been adding some vegetarian meals into our regular rotation but with their sport I want to be careful ... here's a list of 12 Complete Vegetarian Proteins. And as a bonus this Keralan Curry was a hit and it has rice and chickpeas which together make a complete protein.

3. No matter what I tell myself it seems that I just can't escape my haphazard approach to the veggie garden but here's how to do it properly ... 6 Steps for Planning Next Year's Garden.

4. I may surprise the ids sometime with some homemade chocolate rice puffs.

5. Plantagram. 4X4 foot veggie garden planting guides.
