I am so glad my Live below the line challenge is over.
Just in time , as you know Mother's Day is tomorrow, flavour was the thing I missed most and a little wine.
I had sugar and savoury food withdrawals and I will take that lesson away - I'm so grateful for the condiments, herbs and spices in my pantry.
Anyway, I hope you're well and ready to be treated like a Queen tomorrow or at least get a rest and lots of hugs or back rubs.
To celebrate Woolworths created some delicious recipes for Dad and the kids to treat us Mums to breakfast in bed ! A sleep in and peace and quiet would be nice too.
Suitable for all taste buds these recipes offer a sweet, savoury, and healthy option -
The recipes are include:
- Pancake Recipe with Banana & Maple Syrup
- Hollandaise Sauce with Poached Eggs
- Quinoa Breakfast Fruit Salad
We made the pancakes together as my celebratory breakfast - I was craving them.
The team from Woolworths arranged for me to collect these groceries (today) and test the three recipes.

WE nailed it - (we didn't cut them into stars because we were too hungry and there is no waste here)

Hollandaise Sauce with Poached Eggs ???
The video It is supposed to be fail safe ...we'll see.
Monday - It's back to a healthy breakfast options for me - Quinoa Breakfast Fruit Salad - if I can get fresh strawberries and blueberries tomorrow.
This afternoon , I ran 5.5km to counteract the pancakes and the indulgence today. It's the first time I've run on the farm in months due to recent sickness, soreness - dodgy knees & hips and a truckload of laziness.
In other good news - Sam gave me shoulder massage tonight and boy he has the moves. I'm going to have to pay him more or just not tell them the iPad passcode.
Disclaimer - I was gifted the basic groceries as above (via Click & Collect -no delivery in my area). I am donating the same amount back to my Live below the line fundraising.
PS - The WW Website has weeks worth of recipes I want to try. All opinions are my own and I love that we have click and collect - I've used it a few times. You can click and collect the whole box and dice of -ingredients for the recipes.The other major supermarket does not have it in my area !
