{The Nest Cooks} Lazy pikelet days

These are is the first holidays in our little nest since the kid-bird started school so we are enjoying the slower starts to the mornings and the chance for lazy days.

Today we made pikelets we found on TASTEcocoYou can find the recipe here -> TASTE Pikelets

Hooly dooley was I a popular mama-bird in the nest today! They were simple and quick and the little birdies were able to smear them with whatever they wanted. The baby-bird had mashed banana, the toddler-bird blueberries and the kid-bird went honey.

Easy. Quick. Tasty.

Win Win!

{The Nest Can Cook} Stuff my kids ate: Chicken Patties

We had another success in the Nest this week, let me introduce you to the chicken vegie and fetta patties.

They are little balls of happiness and hidden vegies!

I found that the little birdies hoed into them because they are fun to make, fun to roll and fun to eat.

This is the recipe we used (but it is heavily opened to interpretation and feel free to use whatever is in the depths of your fridge’s vegie section)chicken patties copy

INGREDIENTS:

  • 700g chicken mince
  • One egg
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 carrots (grated)
  • 2 green onion, chopped finely
  • Small can of corn
  • Handful of flat-leaf parsley
  • 150g fetta

STEPS:

1. Combine chicken, egg, breadcrumbs, carrots, green onions, corn and fetta in a large bowl.

2. Roll into patties (makes about 16 we found)

3. Heat a large frypan with oil and cook until browned (and cooked through)

We served with salad.

Takes about 30 minutes to make this.

Enjoy Nesters!

{Raising Little People} Green Fries for your little birdies

Getting the little birdies to eat green beans is not the easiest thing. Especially if you make an epic fail and let it slip that they are good for them..

So, instead of just cooking them the old-fashioned-steaming-way, why not try something just a little bit different?

The fantastic team at Super Healthy Kids have added a little spin on the boring old beans. You can’t tell me that “Green Fries’ doesn’t sound just a little more appetising?

Do you have a sneaky way to get your kids to eat more veggies?

Happy eating Nesters!
