Steamed Fish on Friday



Apologies for a late post today, I finally got around to steaming fish in our Kambrook Quatro Multi Cooker!










Some Dory. . . .







I was surprised at how quickly it cooked!













Beautifully moist, even if I do say so myself.



Served with some frozen stir fry veges, cooked in the steamer water.

Bunny Bait Easter Class Gift



I could have sworn I took more photos of these little class gifts we made this year, but the memory card tells a different story.









Miss M helped to mix up a batch of 'Bunny Bait.' There's no recipe really, just a trail mix of whatever your fancy. We used Smarties, mini marshmallows, and some cereal (rice puffs and honey puffs). Popcorn would work beautifully here too. I counted how many cups we needed & measured out the lollies first, then cereal to fill the remainder. Miss M then took great delight in pouring them all into a container & stirring before scooping out each serving.

Divided among plastic cups (and you can see the gift bags on the right). Topped with chocolate moulded in a silicon mould, actually designed for chocolate but this is the first time I've used it for that :-)

The teachers also got Tic Tacs in their gifts with super cute labels which I found here.

Wishing you all a safe Easter break. Here's hoping the Bunny finds you but the calories don't ;-) And as always, respect to the Reason for the Season.

Easter My Little Pony Lunch


How are your school holidays going? We have been flat out here, so I'll be brief in describing the lunch Miss M took for her last day at Kindy before the break.












I asked Miss M what she would like for her sandwich suggesting she might like something for Easter. Of course she asked for My Little Pony - 'When Granny Smith & Apple Bloom are singing to the water'. Thankfully I had also seen the episode Family Appreciation Day so I knew what she was talking about :-)
I grabbed a screenshot from the episode and with some FooDoodlers and greaseproof paper made a decorative cheese to top her sandwich, which was de-crusted with our pocket sandwich cutter.










Below I included two mini plastic eggs, just the right size to hold a strawberry each.







I did give her a little chocolate treat on top of her yoghurt for the day, although I really could have made this with frozen yoghurt.


















Fruit for today was a mandarin that I tried to draw on to turn into an Easter Egg.  Didn't really work so I found some stickers instead. I used a plastic Easter Egg to help hold it upright.

Also included are some grapes with a few bunnies.










Overall a cute little lunch, even if I do say so myself.

Hope you are enjoying your break!

Red Tuna Rice


Another Fish on Friday post for you today. I was going to update this family favourite to utilise our wonderful new Kambrook Quatro Multi Cooker but school holidays have proven a little busier than expected. One fabulous thing about this recipe is how quick & easy it is to prepare. If you have your rice pre-cooked this really is a 15 minute meal.

The trick to this recipe is having your rice pre-cooked. It is very similar to my Let It Go Risotto

Gather your ingredients

Saute your onions, add greens & cook until al dente. Stir through your rice & tuna to warm.

That's it!

Serve with parmesan cheese and fresh cracked pepper.
