My week in photos #18

Weekend Catch up

A look at my week via the photos I have shared on Instagram. 

Miss 10 helped me chop up a box of mangoes. I froze half and the rest are ready for school lunches (might also find something else to do with them).

had big plans for a freezer bake up, but my shoulder has given away before I could get through it all. I’m suffering from terrible RSI in my shoulder and tennis elbow in same arm. so will continue with the rest tomorrow.

Made a few printables for the kids, ready for school tomorrow. What to pack in sports bag and timetable pages so they know what books they need for each day #highschool and so the youngest knows what day she needs to take her sports bag. I’ll put them on the blog next week.  Charts are available here.

OH yum yum mangoes.
I’ve burnt the cakes,slices and muffins by not using the timers.
What did our grandmothers use I wonder ?

Ooh I could only wonder what they used to do, probably pottered in the kitchen keeping their eye on it. I get distracted so easily.

Wow , you have been busy, I am still drooling over the mangoes. I baked over the holidays so my freezer it still fairly full of goodies. A shame about the muffins but don’t worry we have all burnt something by not putting the timer on. We are so easily distracted by fb lol

yes facebook is easily distracting…. We’ve nearly finished all our school bake up, I have to organise another session to fill the freezer back up.

With the burnt muffins, perhaps you could cut the Burnt bits off, warm them up with some stewed fruit and/or custard and then you have sweets one night.

Despite it being the mango season and all, I still haven’t had one yet *hangs head in shame*.

I bet those tarts didn’t last long, they look super yum!

We pulp and puree three mangoes and then add a little pineapple and orange juice and a tablespoon of sweetened condensed milk and they make THE BEST ICE_CREAM ever.
