Recent Things: Artwork, Soggy Sydney and Snuggly Puppies

Recent Things in the Southern In Law World: Artwork, Soggy Sydney and Snuggly Puppies

Well hey, lovely ones! If I had one word to describe this past week it would have to be soggy. We had what I've been calling the Rainpocalypse of 2015 and Sydney is still drying out! 

But despite the rain, lots has been happening this week so let me share what we've been up to! >>

Recipe: Healthier Creamy Potato Bake

Healthy Potato Bake Recipe - Potato Gratin - Low fat, gluten free, healthy, vegan option

You guysssssssssssssssss. Have I ever told you that I hate the rain?

No seriously, hate the rain. I probably have. People in Nepal have probably heard me whining about the rain from their teeny tiny far away villages but I really hate the rain. Actually that's wrong, I hate when rain combines with cold - that's when I hate rain. 

Sun showers on warm sunny days? Good! 
Rain on windy freezing cold days? Bad... very bad. 

But that's what we've had for the last couple of days in Sydney (though thankfully today the sun is shining and it is heaaaaaaaaavenly). But what does a rain hater do to cope when it looks like we need to start thinking about how to build an ark? 

She makes ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the warm food, of course. 

In the last couple of days we've had homemade soups, apple crumble, steaming hot bowls of oatmeal, baked vegetables and this delicious potato bake which just so happens to be our favourite.


And when it looks like that^ outside, I think you'd do the same. That was what I faced yesterday whilst at our church for Mainly Music. Needless to say I was wearing gumboots, thermal leggings and socks under my jeans, a singlet, a knitted long sleeve top, my mainly music t-shirt and my thermal jacket with a knitted beret on my head. 

It may be warmer today but WINTER IS COMING and this potato bake is delicious regardless of the weather so I thought I should share the recipe with you all! Best of all? This potato bake is super simple, easily customised and oh so delicious. Not to mention lightened up and healthy too!

So let me share the recipe with you! >>

Recipe: Peanut Butter and Banana Protein Cupcakes

 Low Fat Peanut Butter and Banana Protein Cupcake Recipe  low fat, low carb, gluten free, high protein, sugar free, clean eating friendly

It's funny how we associate certain foods as gross before we even try them. For me, one of the things I thought was totally gross was protein powder.

Why? Because I'd only ever known it to be filled with junk; artificial sweeteners, ingredients with names half a mile long, foreign bits and pieces and soy soy soy. That was until I found a protein powder that was completely natural and Kristy friendly (with no funky ingredients to upset my sensitive stomach and no soy or artificial sweeteners inside) and started to play around with it. 

Jesse, however, wasn't so convinced.... until I made these cupcakes. He knew they had protein powder in them, but they smelt so good and looked so good he just couldn't resist...

And could you blame him?

We've been calling these the I Can't Believe They're Protein Cupcakes because they're seriously, ridiculously delicious. Full of peanut butter and banana flavour, moist and delicious and topped with an incredible peanut butter cream cheese frosting you really can't go wrong!

But best of all? For those of you who still aren't convinced by the protein powder - we tested them without the protein powder and they're still absolutely delicious (just obviously not so high in protein!) so you can whip these up for yourself as well!

But let me share the recipe with you so you can make them yourself! >>
