It's been ages since I have done a five for Friday (March in fact - gosh time has flown). But let's have a quick catch up.
1. We had bookclub on Tuesday night and heavens, did Heidi that
hosted go out to the full to impress! She did a variation on a
Masterchef recipe - just look at the photo! The toadstool stem is a
caramle siss roll, the dom is coloured white chocolate filled with
chocolate mousse and with a port jelly centre and capped with a biscuit
and chocolate - all on a pistachio bed for "grass". We were all
speechless and totally in awe - and i
t tasted as good as it looked!
3. We are also very proud of our A - she was selected to present the school in the Top 6 academic challenge. It is a huge confidence boost for her is a year that has been rather tough for her. Growing up and dealing with bullies and friendship is hard.
4. I have a cold - and A is also struggling. I guess it is the normal Winter bugs that are hitting us in full force. This weekend apart form learning will also have some resting.
5. Pre cooked meals (mainly done by my wonderful hubby - but some by me) is saving my sanity at the moment. It is wonderful to take out a frozen meal in the morning and know you only need to make the starch and a salad or quick veggies and have a great home cooked meal.
So, what's happening in your life? Any five for Fridays out there?
