Meat FREE Monday’s – ANY ONE?

does any one else enjoy Meat FREE MONDAYS as much as we do?

it is seriously a family tradition in our house now. We don’t eat any where near as much meat as we used to, and have easily been able to incorporate plenty of vegan and vegetarian dishes into the rest of our week.

these little babies were super easy to make and so awesome for the summer weather.
If your anything like me, the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven in the heat – and heat the house up even more.
So when you see a window of cooler weather, switch on that oven and get creative.

Frittatas are awesome and can include any thing! they are all about the eggs, and the veggies are what ever is left over in the fridge or in some cases – whats on special or in season at the market!

in the picture above i’ve made zucchini and corn, but remember the eggs are the star of the dish!
ingredients – method :
2 small zucchini’s grated
1 can of corn kernals drained
1/2 a large onion diced
10 eggs
3/4 cup of grated cheese
pinch of salt and pepper
2 tsp curry powder
mix all ingredients together well (if you have any herbs add them!

I love using my pyrex dishes, and in this instance i used a square one.
baked in the oven on 180 degrees fan forced for 40minutes
Once cooled i cut it into large slices and placed in a container in the fridge.
I sliced them into bite size pieces because they were appealing for the kids. But you could do this for a dinner party dish! top it with a half cherry tomato. you could also place a piece of smoked salmon, capers and dill on top. everything works with a frittata!

Good luck – Leia

Eire Cafe – Our team is divided! YOU BE THE JUDGE

There has been so much talk about, whats HOT and whats NOT in Adelaide – that there is always a new find just around the corner. so … Introducing:

Eire Cafe – Springbank road, Clapham, Sa

Upon going to this cafe, the team at Eire had known we (Dan & Leia) were coming in on a particular day for breakfast. we had the kids with us also, so it seemed like we almost filled the cafe with 5 people! As soon as we sat down, we decided we needed coffee ASAP! so ordered and it literally appeared before our very eyes. It was outstanding in flavour and honestly so good I stood up and asked what beans they used because it was delicious and made well.

Our breakfast was ordered, and we were excited!

now the reason behind our team being divided…

The experience Dan & Leia had was mind blowing with flavour & textures. however remembering the cafe staff were expecting and knew we were going in on a certain day, as it was discussed a few days prior via instagram.

Celeste & Matt couldnt make this breakfast and went on a separate weekend – 2 weeks later. It was so bad, that they had to send back two meals and them be remade. the reasons why, the bacon was dripping in oil and it was so bad that it was dripping onto the plate. the coffee milk was burnt, and over cooked so tasted horrid. they offered no pressed juice or milkshakes, therefore Matt had nothing to drink because he does not drink hot drinks. the eggs were undercooked, there was a mound of avocado almost 2 times the size of the one featured above in the photo of Leia’s. there was certainly no consistency with the chili hint in the avocado or even well seasoned with Celeste’s experience.

NOW you be the JUDGE…
was Eire Cafe really good? or did they know to be outstanding on the occasion they were expecting Dan & Leia?
