It’s a wet start to the Summer holidays and unfortunately it doesn’t look like its going to change anytime soon. The wet Summer storms may be more often than not over the Christmas break, at least the veggie patch will thrive with a good drink.
It was prefect weather however for baking up some easy kids lunch treats seeing as they are home for nearly two months I will have to have the pantry and fridge packed to the rafters. My boys have bottomless pits as stomachs, they are always hungry so having healthy homemade snacks at home is a must or I hear the ever so repeative nagging of “Mum I’m Hungry!” Continue reading “Pizza Scrolls”
It’s back to school time!
It was the first week back of term this week QLD and for the rest soon approaching. There was mixed feelings sending them on their merry way this week with a combination of excitement but also unwillingness to get back into the hectic routine. The hardest part of the holidays for me is always trying to keep the kids entertained.

Healthy snacks I like to always have on hand so I know they are getting used to healthy eating habits as they grow up. At times it can be hard to think of new ideas I don’t buy a lot of packet or pre-made snacks unless I know exactly what’s in them and I stay clear away from supermarket sugar filled packaged food. While we eat a lot of fruit, veggie sticks, nuts and smoothies at times the kids want something hot and tasty to fill them up. These homemade sausage rolls are ideal for hungry bellies yet still nutritious and without the nasties.

Yes it’s actually a thing I googled it! Really just meaning mini pizzas with eggplant as the base which can be eaten as a appetiser, snack or with antipasto.
With my influx of basil pesto in the house and the family eggplant delivery I received from my sister-in-law the other day I was eager to use them both. I was making a traditional eggplant parmigiana for dinner and had some eggplant left over so I decided to bake some extra thick cut slices with a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkle of oregano in the oven for 15-20mins until was just cooked through without being mushy.
