My Day at Home


The littlest was sick. He took a sip from his brother's cup last Friday and started to get sick by Saturday. By Sunday he was full blown into the virus with high temperatures and general un-wellness. He was sleeping and not eating a lot. So I had no other choice but to stay home. So I shook off the guilt and prepared myself for my home duties and mothering hat.

Generally I only have one day free and that's Friday. Even then I have the little one with me and I have a bit of me time in the morning. But I digress, today I dropped off the other three and came straight back home. First off, I did the laundry (of course, a must first thing) and then had a bit of breakfast and he was asleep. I finished off the dishes from last night (Urghh, we actually normally have dishes in the sink). Anyway, I was pretty sure that mums make and bake things when they are at home and I've been dreaming of gozleme for a while so I prepped up the dough. Lucky it was nice and sunny outside and I added a bit more yeast to my yeast mix. I used this recipe from Taste. It makes four decent size gozleme.


I'd actually never tried pan frying my gozleme before so I gave it a go. Normally I bake it like my mum-in-law does with her dough stuff but I found out that pan-frying is so much faster but you have to be careful not to burn it. Turn the heat down low to medium and use a spatula to flip your goodies. I made spinach and cheese, ham and cheese and spinach and feta and finally za'atar.



I was going to cook this za'atar one flat but I couldn't slide it into the pan so I had to fold it in half like the others and cook it. I must say I am quite impressed with myself.

Now, to see how long my floors stay clean until the kids get home and have dinner. Grrrrrr.
If you've got some great gozleme recipes or fillings let me know!

The cutest labels - Hippo Blue

This is my youngest daughter Jacquie. Jacquie is 3, turning 4 very soon and goes to day care once a week. She also has speech therapy once a week and bad mummy packs her food in plastic bags and old lunch boxes and scribbles her name on paper labels. 
Jacquie is very happy today because she's sporting a brand new lunch box which has her name imprinted on it and it was made by Hippo Blue. Jacquie is in dire need of special name labels and that is where Hippo Blue saved my day and made everything look pretty. Hippo Blue made up a batch of their Vinyl Label Variety pack and I could not be more pleased. I've had other labels before and these ones are quite impressive. Why? well because there's a lot more variety. I like how there are different sizes so I can plaster her name on all her pieces she needs for day care and school.
Did you see those cute footprint stickers? They're shoe stickers. How cool! We also recieved round dots and new square ones which I've never se…

Cooking under pressure

The other day I saw a huge stack of Bellini multifunction cookers in front of Target. Of course the black and sleek packaging and design caught my eye and I stood there having a look at what they were selling. It was an all in one pressure, rice, porridge, cake, steam and slow cooker. It was half price so I really couldn't resist. I plonked it in front of the pram and the toddler walked.
I tried it with rice yesterday and it was fine but wasn't happy about how loud it was as it let out the steam and it spurted rice water over the lid so it doesn't win any gongs in that department. However, I made 15min soy chicken for lunch today so I was really pleased with that. In fact, I don't know how I lived without a pressure cooker for so long! I use to cringe about how it would take me 30mins at least to make a meal and now I can go from frozen to the table in about 25mins. How awesome!
I made this soy chicken using 8 drumsticks, 1/2 cup soy, 1 cup of vegetable stock and set …

Laser Eye Surgery

< feeling sleepy Blogger doesn't like any of my camera pictures at the moment so I can't show you the pictures taken while I was having my eye's lasered. Here are the pics that Blogger decided it would upload of my eye surgery. I finally decided not to wait any longer and after I saw an advertisement at the local medical centre for the Sebban Eye Centre I decided to see if I was a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery. The check only takes 30mins and boy was I glad to hear that I was! I booked an appointment the very next day but I had to still wait 6weeks.
< during the laser!
A week has passed now and I still have slightly blurry vision since having TransPRK or Advanced Surface Laser. Sometimes when I use the saline drops I have clear vision even from the kitchen to the lounge which is fantastic. I just wish it would hurry up so I can get on with things. I have to have IE at 125% otherwise I find it hard to read and I haven't been on the net for a few days now…
