Oaty-chrissy treats December 10, 2009

Filed under: christmas,recipe — craftymim @ 10:00 pm

One of my fave danish christmas treats are oat-balls ‘havregrynskugler‘. A variation on a rum ball I suppose.

You’ll need

100g of soft butter

300ml quick cooking oats

150ml icing sugar

100ml cocoa

100ml dessicated coconut

1 teaspoon strong coffee

a dash of vanilla

Mix all ingredients, roll into small balls and roll in more coconut.

Store in the fridge.

We love these so much I have just made batch number 4 already.


Tuesday Lunch December 2, 2009

Filed under: recipe — craftymim @ 9:29 pm

Today was a blah-kind of a day. It drew tears, and nearly a tantrum by 9am. So the soul needed renourishing, and what better way than cooking up a feast, convincing the hubby to take a mental health day, and enjoying a lunchtime chat in the georgeous Melbourne sun.

I softened a sliced red onion in olive oil, added 2 chopped tomatoes, and half a chopped red capsicum and cooked until nicely coloured.

I added a handful of fresh spinach leaves and rocket leaves from the garden, and then poured over 8 lightly beaten eggs*

Topped the lunchtime feast with sliced of feta, and cooked over alow heat with the lid on until hubby returned from the hardware store.

We had a simple salad of greens, and advocado as well as a few sliced of crusty bread.

The mood was far more positive with a our tummies and hearts full.

Best of all, enough leftovers to do for dinner as well.

*may I brag about getting 3 fresh eggs every morning from our resident chooks.
