Ahh, a morning where I don’t have to rush around and be places or do loads of houswifey stuff. I felt a little energised at the thought of it all so I threw on some clothes (no time for a shower) and walked the kids to school (something I very rarely do) then stopped at the shops to get what I need for dinner…we’re having a chicken bake. After getting back home, I showered, ate brekky, popped on a load of washing to make the most of what I expect will be the last warmish day until spring and suddenly felt at a loose end. What to do with my time? I decided to bake, but since I have an optometrist appointment at 2 and a baby to deal with as well, it had to be something quick and simple. But what? Ah, I have birthday season biting at my heels and I need to come up with some kid friendly party food. Remembering my childhood, I took 2 old classics and came up with my very own “new classic”. I can’t wait for the kids to get home and try them, I think they’ll love them, I certainly did! Actually, I might even pop 2 doors up and try them out on a pre-schooler in the meantime, unless of course I end up eating them all.
4 cups of rice puffs
