Don’t Play With Your Food. 

Did your parents ever tell you not to play with your food?  Maybe it was a result of you being dished up the brussel sprouts and pushing them around the plate hoping they would somehow vaporise? (that was my side of the story)

Well I have been having the best time during lockdown “playing” with my food and not in the above mentioned way. 

I do not do very well with the “cooking side” of things. I leave that to Ellie my daughter and Garry my husband.  I can forget the pot’s on the stove and wander off till I smell the aroma of singed dinner.  Cooking is not my forte. 

"Playing" with my food however has become another of my passions.

Those couple of chilly days prompted me to prepare some hearty soup. (by prepare I mean opening the can)

The pumpkin was scrumptious.  Do you have a favourite ‘go to ‘ soup?


This was also a spicy paella soup. I masterfully opened the can. The tomato flavour was really rich. 

I must admit I have such a sweet tooth.  I had fun playing with the icing sugar as I sprinkled it over the salted caramel slice.  (courtesy of Woollies and highly recommended)

How much fruit can you fit in a bowl? Well there were a couple of berries that took a dive over the edge but the ones that stayed behind looked appetising and were quickly demolished after their time on the camera.

After a fun time “playing with my food” I sat down to a cup of hot chocolate and “coffee cup”, this time courtesy of Theobroma, a shop that I am missing visiting.
