So I bought a Kmart pie maker which inspired me to get back on my blog.
As you can see it’s been over a year since I have posted . So many things have changed in my life.
That will be another post.
Onto the Kmart pie maker. I had seen the Kmart piemaker group on Facebook & decided to
Purchase one . Well I have to say it’s amazing . These little cream kisses were just made with the greens vanilla cake mix , I put 1/3 of a cup of mixture in each , they took three to four minutes to cook . Cut them in half placed jam & cream & dusted with icing sugar and Taaa daaa the texture is divine .
Onto the pies short crust pastry for the base
Filling is ground beef , one onion , dessert spoon Italian herb mix boil this up & drain off most of the water but leave small amount in there . Add couple of tablespoons maggi gravy mix & tomatoe sauce & then place it in the short crust base then sprinkle tasty cheese on top then place the puff pastry top on the pie , brushed it with beaten egg . Cooked for 5 - 7 minutes & there is lunch . So so easy
I can’t wait to try out heaps of other recipes but I highly recommend this gadget , makes life easy.

Its a whole new Year

I have just realized its been one whole year since a last wrote in this blog.
2017 was one crazy year and I felt like the year just passed me by. I have dealt with the loss of my beautiful loving Dad, relationship endings and beginnings. The birth of my beautiful grandchild after many complications and I feel as though my body was just in survival mode the whole year.

I think this happened a couple of times.

I havnt spent as much time as I would of liked to in my garden or actually doing the things I enjoy to do.
But today is the start of a New Year and Im hoping to take the time to actually slow down and enjoy the moments.

I havnt even read a blog all year {does anybody even blog much anymore}.



I have to say even though not much time was spent gardening I have still appreciated the blooms that it has given me.

My vege garden is full with self sown tomato plants.
Today I made loganberry and rhubarb jam.


This is the little apple of my eye at the moment. Meet Toby my little grandson. He was born 6 weeks early as my daughter developed Hellps syndrome which can be life threatening. It was such a scary few weeks


Here is a pic of my beautiful Dad who passed away in May. He was my rock and I miss him dearly. I find comfort in all our Happy memories.
Here is a pic taken just before Christmas with India and Tyler

Now to embrace 2018 , Im back to work tommorow and Im determined this year is going to be a better year. Slow down and enjoy the moments
Garden
Cook
Grow
Learn
Give
Love
Meditate
Reiki
I feel like I had forgot who I was in 2017
2018 Im ready
Happy New Year Everyone xx
