I was rummaging around in my fridge for ideas for our dinner tonight. What’s on the menu? Chicken! We eat a lot of chicken around here — it’s the main non-veg item we cook. Wanting some zing, I decided to whip up a marinade of fresh cilantro, garlic and lime. Technically, I basted the chicken (kabobs) after they had cooked a little in the oven. Ideally, I’d like to have marinated the chicken the night before, but, alas, I didn’t really plan ahead with this meal (like most other meals I prepare).
This is a great, quick way to add flavour to your meat or poultry. If you’re not a fan of cilantro, however, this isn’t for you.
When I was taking stock of things in my pantry, I noticed we had an expired box of pancake mix. I don’t think we used the stuff much anyway. I bought it on a whim and made pancakes once and that was it. I did, however, keep it aside for Peach, knowing we’d find something fun to do with it, like making playdough! We made home made playdough in the past, but never with something as exciting as old pancake mix.
Shaving cream paint?
After being introduced to it by Anna, over at The Imagination Tree, I couldn’t wait to try it out with my Peach. Like most toddlers, Peach is an avid painter. She is instantly drawn to all things colourful. This was a super cheap way to keep her busy and let her indulge in some colourful sensory play.
Hello, and welcome to my first post! Thank you for visiting me. I can’t tell you how excited I am to start this blog. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time. At some point, I’ll post a little bit about myself. But, for now, let’s talk about my Ikea hack! I wanted to jump in and start with this post to get the ball rolling.
