milk_thistle Seriously. How much fun is play dough? I love how being a parent gives you a valid excuse to play with this stuff again! And lego, and blocks.... What kid stuff do other parents enjoy playing with again? 5d

milk_thistle Ta- dah! @rainyg56 Pork meatloaf with a redcurrant and blood orange glaze 7d
  •   rainyg56 OMG!!!! Seems a shame to slice into it! Do it and show me what it's like on the inside...... 7d
  •   louelt1 Yum! Love the sound of that glaze. 7d
  •   milk_thistle @louelt1 Yes the glaze was yum! I may have "tested" the glaze once or ten times... 7d
  •   milk_thistle @rainyg56 Haha it wasnt as pretty on the inside! Just mince looking. Not like a terrine or anything. Though now I want to make a terrine! Night night xx 7d
  •   rainyg56 Nigh nigh darlin. Xx 7d
  •   pomlovepdx I want it all... 7d

milk_thistle Later/regram from my Mama of Ruby helping me with the muffins earlier. The trick to limiting spillage while she "helps" stir? Put everything in a really big bowl! 7d
  •   rainyg56 You've started something now! She's going to want to "help" all the time now darlin!!!! 7d
  •   louelt1 Oh gosh! That face! 7d
  •   milk_thistle @louelt1 I know, I'm quite the looker haha Yeah, getting her to smile "normally" is quite a challenge! 7d
  •   bennybucko Too kyoote! 6d

milk_thistle Little mini- muffin, quiche-y type thingies I made for the small child's lunch. Managed to cram mushrooms, onions, basil and kale into them too. Dangerously moreish for me! 1w
  •   rainyg56 I think because she was involved in the making of them she had some ownership of them!! 7d
  •   milk_thistle @lozziemiller Yep! Tinned. I think I used SPC. Better sauce 7d
  •   lozziemiller Right...just made a batch for kids (maybe I'll have one too) and I'm so excited to see how they turn out! They looked so sloppy and with no flour I'm a tad skeptical...hurry up 15mins. Haha 6d
  •   milk_thistle @lozziemiller Yeah, they are a bit sloppy. Might take a little longer than 15 to brown up nicely though. How did they go? Just noticed your comment was an hour ago! 6d
  •   lozziemiller I had them cooking for an hour...they were just too sloppy to take them out any earlier. We all like them except for Curtis. I'm going to try with baked beans on Sunday (only because they are healthier) so I can have one for morning tea every now and then. Thinking they will freeze ok too! 6d
  •   milk_thistle @lozziemiller Too sloppy after an hour? Did u use mini muffin trays or normal size? Baked beans sounds GREAT! I'm going to try that next too! 5d
  •   lozziemiller Once they cooled and i put them in the fridge they were fine. I went onto the4 ingredients website and followed the recipe which said a large tin with 3 eggs cheese and goodies thrown in. You said only half a can...maybe i should have followed your directions haha. I used medium sized silicon tray. Do you use mini? Pauly loved them and polished them all off this afternoon. 5d
  •   milk_thistle @lozziemiller I usually use 2 mini muffin trays, just coz theyre more Ruby sized then Yes they are popular with grown-ups too! 6h

milk_thistle Back in my own bed! Out of hospital and feeling much better. Ended up having a procedure to clot leaking cerebro-spinal fluid (what was making me so sick- too complicated for details).
