I was inspired by this post from Melissa of tiny happy to make a necklace with some wooden beads that I've had for a long time. They were from a bracelet that broke, instead of threading them on fabric like she did, I crocheted them on some green cotton. The photo doesn't really show much detail but I crocheted the necklace long so it can wrap a couple of times around my neck and still hang long.
We have been enjoying some vegetable fritters here for a few weeks, I grate a couple of zucchinis and squeeze out the excess moisture, grate a cup or so of carrot, beat in an egg or two and about a handful of breadcrumbs. Mix it all together and cook in a fry pan with a tiny bit of olive oil. You can add lots of other vegetables in there too especially if carrot isn't your thing. They are quite plain (the kids love them like this) but they can be spiced up with some curry powder or served with a spicy sauce. I'm amazed how fast they disappear from the plates, a great way to get a few more vegetables into our diets. Our favourite thing to serve them with is homemade garlic pizza bread, yum. I must post that recipe soon.
I grate the vegetables on the finest grade on my grater so the cook a little more quickly and have a finer texture that the children find appealing.


  1. When summer comes out this way, I am really going to have to have these as a staple. So yummy

  2. oh, wow your crocheted necklace is so beautiful! (it's much nicer than mine).
    and so are those fritters- i will definitely make those tomorrow night. :)

  3. I love your photos!
