In goes kitchen scraps out comes the best eggs ever. I don't know why it took me so long.
Do you have chickens?

Take the meat off the bones and add to a couple of eggs and cheese. You can add veges, (even frozen veges) and seasoning.
Line a muffin tin with puff pastry and pour in chicken and egg mix. Cook in hot oven for about 20 mins.
Excellent afternoon tea snack for the kids.
Do you waste a lot of food in your home?

Next time you take the family to the beach, (or anywhere in nature) try to get away on your own. Tell them you are going for a walk. Just get out of view and sit and watch what comes into view. Take time to listen, smell and feel your surroundings. Even ten minutes will make all the difference to your day.
Do you get enough "Me" time?

Just spread a sheet of puff pastry with a thin layer of Nutella and roll up. Slice the roll at 1cm intervals and place on a lined biscuit tray.
If you want to be adventurous... roll in from both sides and create heart shapes
Cook in preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 15 minutes. Keep checking after that. They need to be golden.
Allow to cool and dust with icing sugar just before serving. These are perfect for picnics too.
Enjoy with friends or not!

Not bad hey?
In the words of my sister Rosemary "Eat your Heart out!" She knows what that is about.
They are a lot of work as we haven't sprayed and have been keeping the bugs and caterpillars off by hand. It is rewarding and the taste is amazing.
Do you grow veges in your garden?

Not every piece will grow roots so make sure you start with more plants than what you will need. You can always pass extras on to family and friends.
This is an excellent way to save money and you will get a real kick out of it.
Do you love to get plants for free?

Sometimes I sit on my back deck and just wait to see what comes into my garden to share the oasis we have created. My husband and I play a game where we count to ten and within that time something always seems to pass through the pool garden. It may be a butterfly, a skink, a dragonfly, a bird, a waterdragon or even a leaf but there is always something. I sometimes wonder where they visit next. This is very relaxing. A meditation of sorts.
Do you meditate?

This is our pooch... "202". She was named after our first dog..."102". (If that helps) She is a very lovely, loyal and lazy dog. My children just love her (so do I .. don't tell anyone) and I find photos on my camera all of the time.
This is one of them. She is an outside dog and she understandably hates the approaching colder months. We spend less time out in the yard with her in winter and when we get home, we shut the doors behind us. Make allowance for your outdoor pets at this time and try to be outdoors on weekends and maybe let them sneak inside on those colder nights.
Do you let your pets inside?
