When it comes to the end of the day, my issue is not that I have to cook. It’s what the hell am I going to cook? It’s a battle for me every day. I’m either all out of inspiration or have a nice recipe in front of me that requires a lot of time to prep and/or I’m missing a major ingredient.
So when we were offered the chance to try Dinner Sorted, I jumped at the chance.
The Melbourne-based business, run by mums Anna and Karin, delivers a bag of fresh and healthy ingredients and the corresponding recipes to make four dinners.
You don’t have to get yourself twisted into a pretzel worrying about a dining venue that will appease both adults and kids.
Munich Brauhaus at South Wharf has started a Sunday Family Fun Day, with a children’s entertainer ready to keep the kiddos amused from 12.30pm with games, face painting and colouring in all going on in a designated play room.
I’m big on dishing up home cooked, nutritious meals for Millie – but that’s in an ideal world. I don’t always have the time to cook! Melbourne’s Gourmet Juniors has taken the stress out of dinner time with a toddler by offering tasty food made from organic produce and free-range meat. The new Gourmet Juniors heat and eat meals are the perfect solution for mums with too much on their plate.
It’s a new Melbourne fashion brand for kids with designer prints and styles mixing up a wardrobe basic. But Little Wild Things T is anything but simple.
Label: Little Wild Things T
Where are you based?Hawthorn, Melbourne, Australia
What’s your background?Jacqui, a mother of three (4yo boy and almost 2yo twin girls) worked for 8 years as a senior buyer and designer for Myer’s Miss Shop then for Forever New. Charlotte – who has being a mum on her ‘to do list’ but for now is an unreal aunty – started her career working for Burberry in London and then became a senior buyer for Sportsgirl for over seven years. We are not just friends but also sister-in-laws, we live next door to each and both have our fashion backgrounds so having a label together happened quite naturally.
From the moment Millie’s sharp little eyes spotted the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel from the window of the car, her legs started a kicking frenzy.
She does that when she’s excited (it turns into a happy stomp when she’s standing up).
I was excited too. For Christmas 2008 I received a gift voucher to ride the Southern Star from an aunty – I had to cash in my voucher soon after when the wheel closed due to faults caused by extreme heat.
Last week I finally got to see the views for myself as a guest of the Melbourne Star, hubby and Millie in tow.
