Nothing like talking trucks to cheer up the kids :) Bob the Builder: Adventures By the Sea is a fun dvd with 5 episodes. You can find it at Amazon for $8.93!

A few weeks ago, an amazing and dear friend turned 37 years young. She is working hard at maintaining a healthy lifestyle. So instead of baking her a cake, I decided we should give Pavlova a try. I had made it once before, and I really don't know why I don't make it more often!
Pavlova Recipe: 4 large (120 grams) egg whites 1 cup (200 grams) superfine (castor)
sugar 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla
extract 1 teaspoon white vinegar 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch (corn flour)

that has a light and delicate crisp crust and a soft sweet marshmallow
center. This lovely dessert is typically served with softly
whipped cream and fresh fruit. There is a long standing debate about
whether New Zealand
or Australia invented this dessert, which has yet to be resolved. What
know is that the name,…

Not only are peas one of my favorite vegetables, but they also make great ankle ice packs. For someone who falls a lot (my friends call me a klutz, but I just say I'm 'special'), it is imperative that I always keep frozen peas in my freezer. From my experience, I have learned that they are much better (and cheaper!) than any normal ice pack as they conform so nicely to your ankle. They are also so much better than frozen french fries, which I was forced to use in France, or frozen minestrone soup, which I had to use in Italy as we couldn't find frozen peas. (I told you that I fall a lot, right?)
I was at Smith's recently and discovered that frozen peas are 10 for $10. Boy, am I glad I picked up several packages! I haven't been able to find any coupons for frozen peas, so if you know where I can get some, let me know. I gotta keep my freezer stocked up!
