School holiday fun

we spent a most of the first week of the school holidays at the dancing eisteddfod, but the second week the kids got to catch up on some playdates with their cousins and with my family that means a feast or two.

Maggie was inspired by a little Japanese song she has learnt at school so she wanted a Asian feast. This was also a good excuse to re-test a few of the recipes from my new book, The Real Food for kids Cookbook with a bunch of different age children and also film a bit to make demonstrations for You tube to go with the book, so much easier to learn something by watching it!

dumpling making

Ed, Bernadette, Maggie, Stephanie, Tommy and Oscar spent a lovely afternoon preparing:

albacore tuna spring rolls
Nori rolls
rice paper rolls
pork and prawn dumplings including making the wrappers
chicken and corn soup
Honey soy beef stir-fry

The next day was pancakes for breakfast



When Elise and Oliver visited we made homemade gnocchi to go with a slow cooked Italian Beef sauce.



and the girls made fettuchini for meatballs


Cooking with children is a lot of fun, I bring the food out of the kitchen and onto the dining room table when I have young kids around who need to be careful around hot and sharp objects.
