Mid-Week Meal Idea: Burgers

Tonight I made Knife-and -Fork Beef Stroganoff Burgers. I saw the recipe on the Rachael Ray show and it can be found here. Inside is a beef pattie, creamy mushroom sauce and battered onion rings. I made a few basic changes to suit the ingredients that I had and served them with homemade fries and a salad with my favourite sesame dressing.

Mid Week Meal Idea: Baked Eggs with Spinach

I adapted this recipe from a book I bought recently called My Favourite Recipes: Easy Eggs and Cheese
I will write what I did and in brackets what the recipe called for
A layer of tinned tomatoes (sliced fresh tomatoes)
 A layer of pre-grated pizza cheese-parmesan, cheddar and mozerella (sliced mozerella)
 A layer of sliced steamed silverbeet (handful of baby spinach leaves).
Salt and pepper (nutmeg and torn basil leaves too)
 Make small wells in the mixture and crack an egg into them.
Bake for about 10-15 minutes at 200 degrees until the egg white is set and the yolk is still just runny...I over did mine a wee bit.
I ate them both myself and they were delicious.

Girl Style Friday: First Haircut

 For a while now I've been meaning to take Sofia to get her hair trimmed. The baby ends were getting dry and split. Once mentioned Na'uli wanted hers done too of course.
She had a tiny bit trimmed off...and sat like a startled possum in the chair.
 Sofia was so excited. She couldn't stop smiling. Naturally she wanted to see what was going on around the salon and wiggled around a bit...pity her hairdresser wasn't very child friendly and was quite growly!
She got several inches cut off and was very pleased with herself.
Sofia is wearing...
Top: Postie
Skirt: Pumpkin Patch Clearance
Tights: hand-me-down from Zoe
Shoes: from cousin Clara
Na'uli is wearing...
Top: Cotton on via Sofia
Leggings: Pumpkin Patch Clearance
Skirt: Pumpkin Patch Clearance
Boots: Country Road (Trademe $20, score!)
