Homemakers Block..

Standard

Ok I have been considering how to word this post for some time, and have decided to just lay it down.. I have cooking block! As in, I can’t decide what to cook for my next resolution recipe. But that kind of allows for some fun.

So I’m thinking, you can choose! I want submissions for a new resolution recipe.

The boring stuff:
Recipe must be vegetarian, simple and reasonably healthy.
Must not call for any random specialised ingredients – I’m not buying real vanilla beans, spelt flour or edible gold dust.
Don’t forget the photo of my depleted baking supplies if you are thinking of cakes cookies or slices. I have some stuff, just not loads.
Submissions may be made in the comments section, and I would prefer if you have tried out the recipe already, so I know its worth a try.

Sooo have a think about it peeps.. You have about a week or so. There may even be a prize for the winning entry! No promises haha.

Get to it!

 

EDIT: I have included a list of what I have in my pantry and refrigerator right now. I don’t mind having to buy 1 or 2 items but as I said, nothing too fancy!

Ok ok I know it has been a while since my last update, but to be fair, nothing of interest has really happened to report on. K is charging around the house, wreaking havoc in ask the cupboards and drawers in the kitchen. He has laid claim to my wooden spoons. All of them. He babbles away in his own language, and every now and then pops out something that sounds like an actual word. So far we have ‘ta’ ‘shoes’ ‘roro’ ‘keys’ and ‘mum’.
Big bro is a founding member of the local bmx Bandits who terrorise drivers everywhere within the complex. He is on school holidays and has been at his grandads for 4 days, and his dads house tonight. So oof and I have been a little bored. we have been going to the creek as much as possible since it has been getting cooler, and other than that, not a whole lot more. I have not been doing much in the way of resolution recipes, but will have a new one to report on by next week.
