Busting to tell you

I have been waiting for the project to finish. But I'm busting to tell you all 
Remember these?

 
Well they now look like this! 
Still a ways to go. But omg I'm so happy. 
Can't wait until it's done. We will give the area a good clean 
Put up the gate so the dog can't get in
Get some nice outdoor furniture light the fire and relax
Just like camping. Only with comfort and style lol
Yup couldn't hold onto the the secret any longer

A sweet hens


Here is the bride to be. She is marrying my nephew in three weeks
For her hens we all had a cup cake decorating lesson
 
My sister and her daughter. It's her son getting married 
 
And here are my cupcakes. I think it's fair to say I'm not going into business doing this  
I'm not very good but it was fun and tomorrow when the kids come over for Mother's Day I'm sure we will all get to laugh at them before we eat them all up 
It was a fun afternoon  
See ya xxx

Camping food

 

I have four meals here ready to freeze 
Did a big cooking session yesterday and made chow mien for dinner. Made extra and have one bag of that 
I Aldi cooked up some more stuff pepper soup. And I now have three bags of that 
Four meals full of vegetables, rice and mince meat 
Hopefully they will be easy to defrost and heat up while away with little rubbish to deal with. 
Containers just take up so much room. I'm freezing these flat so the stack nicely in the freezer in the car 
Wish me luck

Fungi

Some of the amazing fungi Mother Nature had provided on the place 
 
Don't know if they're eatable but they sure do add a strange beauty to the paddocks 
This one looks like a trail of doggie do do lol 
 
Here is a close up. 
 
And this one looks just like it's from outer space  a mini rocket ready to take off
The weather has been lovely here. Cold in the morning and sunny all day 
Right now it's almost five in the  evening and I'm sitting outside listening to the birds settle for the night 
Enjoy all the fresh air I can while possible 
See ya xxx

Getting creative in the kitchen

Today I felt like Greek chicken soup. But I didn't want to spend lots of money and use up things in the pantry instead 
This is the traditional recipe 
I bought some chicken mince and some turkey mince that was on special 
And combined them with a few eggs, chicken noodle soup mix and some rice

 
Then I made up some stock using stock powder I had in the pantry and when it was boiling I added the mince mixture 
Using two spoons and making little croquet shapes 
Had to do this bit slowly and let the water come back up to boil 
 
I also added more rice about a cup full and cooked it until the rice was done
Then I did the egg and lemon mix once it cooled 
I've just had some and it was soooo yummy!
Might keep that one in the rotation I think 
When the mince is on special I get some more and freeze it for when ever I feel like it 
Just a little different than using the chicken pieces 
How about you. Have I inspired you to get creative?
