A lovely thing about summer in Melbourne is the amount of free music events that can be found in gorgeous park settings. Which is a lovely way to spend a Sunday evening. Particularly as a picnic the evening before your First Born starts school and work resumes for the year and routine craziness consumes your [...]

Melbourne is not a place to cook this week. It reached 43.4 degrees in the city today and 44 degrees i my neck of the woods. That’s around 110 in Farenheit. Admittedly I did get up at 6am to cook some chickpeas I’d had soaking but as it is still 37.4 degrees at 9.30pm, I [...]

Summer has come to Melbourne this week with another scorcher today. The sort of day that makes one reluctant to cook for fear of unnecessarily heating up the house. To add another challenge to the day’s meal provision, chez KP is drastically short of fruit and veg. Lil Miss’s birthday extravaganza made the farmers market [...]

The past few days have been perfect Melbourne summer days. Bright sunny days, warm nights. My inner gardener is badly lamenting Melbourne weather at the same time as the rest of me revels in it.

Tuna Crepe Stack

This week’s cook book challenge combined with my lack of culinary energy has produced the somewhat mundane tuna crepe stack. Whilst unremarkable, it was a good honest meal of the comforting variety. Something I would imagine most children would eat happily and reasonably quick to prepare. Budget friendly as well. The recipe claims to serve [...]

Stinking hot night. Tired. Poor meal planning. No proper shop done for the week. Cranky Ankle Biters. Thank goodness for tuna salad. In our house its something that everyone loves. It’s a quick and easy way to get heaps of vegetables with a good protein punch into everyone (carbs too if served with bread or [...]

Potato Marinara

Nothing like a gorgeous sunny day to make a woman neglect her indoor tasks in favour of her outdoor tasks. I arrived home from work at lunchtime and thanked my lucky stars I’d planned a quick and easy meal. The next few hours were spent in productive outdoor activity; building up another layer on the [...]

Today in Melbourne it was 28 degrees. That’s my perfect. Warm enough for scanty clothing, cool anough to run. It’s the best of all possible worlds. Pure bliss. Between running and gardening and cooking, I lived life to the full today. I’m too weary too talk about it so here’s a pictorial representation of all [...]
