what if money didn't matter?

It's been a while, I know. I am going to be pretty absent for a couple more weeks I imagine and then I'll have lots of news and hopefully some photos, recipes and much more inspiration to share.

But in the meantime, I came across this and just couldn't resist the urge to share.

Thank you all for patiently awaiting my return. Soon!

paw paw, cucumber, mint and feta salad

I always feel a bit indulgent when I actually take the time to make my own lunch instead of eating bits and pieces according to the children's eating rhythm throughout the day.

But this was quick to make, satisfying and delicious.

What are you having for lunch today?

Ingredients and Directions

Cut up ingredients and toss very lightly. Drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of sea salt.

happy halloween!

To be honest, it always feels a little forced and a little awkward to celebrate Halloween on this side of the world- it is such a seasonal holiday. 
But Halloween night holds some of my dearest and fondest childhood memories - the tricks, the treats, exploring our neighbourhood, parading in our costumes... and the loot!
Minus their top 'three favourite candies' the rest was taken by the candy mice last night in exchange for a little gift. 
And I'm pretty sure Halloween night, no matter which hemisphere we continue to celebrate it in, will also be one of their childhood favourites!
Happy Halloween! Wherever you may be!
