About 65 kms north-east of Melbourne is the Kinglake National Park. Well worth a drive if you want to get out of the hustle and bustle of the CBD and get into nature.
We headed to Masons Falls where there are about 13 kms of trails to walk, however we just wandered along the path (about 1.4 kms round trip) from the picnic area to the viewing platform at the waterfall. You might get lucky and spot a lyrebird or two, unfortunately we didn't despite looking hard, although we did hear them. A wallaby hopped across the path in front of us though which thrilled the kids (okay, and me).
On Valentine's Day I'll be waking up to my three loves at home with me. I plan on making their favorite breakfast, giving them each a special card and showing them how important they are to me. Well, you know, after I convince the teen to get out of bed ... probably closer to midday.
A breakfast tray is the perfect way to start your loved one's day off just right. This is what you need:
During the week a friend sent me a text message asking if I knew how to make a diaper cake.
My response - sure, of course I do ... okay I've never actually made one before, but surely it can't be that difficult ... I didn't actually tell her that part. If I can make regular cakes, and a classroom supplies cake, surely I can whip up a diaper cake too.
And so I did. I think it turned out pretty cute.
I found a really simple tutorial here for arranging the diapers inside cake pans, and thankfully I had plenty of assorted sizes on hand from baking cakes.
When you have a teenager, the chances of last-minute entertaining is pretty high, especially on big sports days ... okay, let's be honest, it's quite high any day of the week.
Putting together food for them can be done in no time and with little cost.
Pizza is always a big hit and it's so quick and easy. If you have a few minutes to run to the grocery store, my Vons (Safeway) store had DiGiorno pizza on sale for $3.99 a box today. Much cheaper than ordering delivery.
I love seeing my work featured around the web and in print, however, please only use one image (which should be credited and linked to the original post) and do not re-publish recipes or tutorials. Thank you.
