Lunchbox lessons

A really bad thing happened in Term 4. The kids went to my parents for a school-night sleepover. What I was really looking forward to, more than the party I was going to, more than the minor sleep-in the next morning, was the fact that I’d get a day off the school lunches. My mum […]

Thermomix Peanut Butter Coleslaw

Salads made in the Thermomix are the best and jazzed up coleslaws are even better. There’s a Vietnamese angle to this peanut-loving recipe so add a handful of Vietnamese mint if you want to theme it even more. I haven’t bought peanut butter since I bought my Thermomix.
