Have a laugh on me

We're not all in the same boat, some of us struggle to even get in the boat!

Look what I can do with a zucchini and an electric device!

Eat your heart out Thermomix crusaders – I’m bringing the beater back! YEAH!

Bet you Thermomixers can't do this with your machine, you'd lose your tongue, or a digit - BOOM - go the old electric mixer!

For those who aren’t familiar with the Thermomix – be proud ashamed, be VERY proud ashamed.

Here it is, in all it’s $2000 (give or take) glory!

For someone like me, a writer, this device would be the equivalent of me having a minion to take notes while I spoke, to interview boring people, do research on the internet and then present me with all the info.

All that would be left for me to do was press a button and VOILA an amazing article would appear.

Basically you have to do FUG ALL and you get a shit-hot baking product!

But alas I am not one of the privileged few who owns one, nor will I likely EVER be gifted one to write a review about.

So I thought I’d go retro and make cupcakes with… wait for it…. an electric beater!

Nothing like a vibrating hand to make you feel ALIVE!

The aim was to hide three large zucchinis in them, like I do with risotto and spag bol!

I LOVE ZUCCHINIS!

No need to bore you with a description of how I made them, but here is a pictorial of my baking adventure.

Then I added zucchini - just TRICKS - this was just to see if you were still awake - looks a bit, umm, crude!

Totally pureed those zucchinis!

This is more like it and I only found a few (dozen) tiny bits of egg shell in the mixture - will give the lucky cruncher a GREAT surprise, a little bit like crunching on sand!

Oh it's the simple things in life that keep me happy!

Doesn't it look so picturesque?

Man it's hard not to spill the mixture, a slow boring job!

This – not so much!

Out of the bowl and into the oven baby! And not a Thermomix in sight!

YUMMO - and they were gone in less than 24 hours - NO SHIT!

I’m starting to wonder if I have missed my calling? Am I perhaps destined to be a FOOD BLOGGER after all?
Have you got any other tips to hiding veges in food?
Nah just kidding I don’t care, I only bake once a year and I’ve done my dash for 2013!

A rather wordless IBOT – but they say a picture paints a thousands words!

WAIT – don’t got!!!

Wanna join my club where parents can make wildly inappropriate comments and confessions?

I might set up a club, not the pole dancing type, the once-a-week meet and drink greet sort.

It’ll be a place where parents can confess their innermost thoughts, have a rant and say exactly what they think without fear of retribution.

You’ll be handed a bucket of coffee, wine, AND chocolate as you walk through the door to congratulate you for making it through another week of parenting.

The meetings won’t be well publicised or else someone will shut us down for being politically incorrect.

I couldn't agree more!

Okay so I’ll warm things up a bit with a some things I want to get off my chest.

1. I knew I should have married for money and not love (no offence to the Husband of course).

2. I often feign a sickness at dinner time because I can’t stand the kids moaning about how much they hate my meals.

3. For a start there I thought a Thermomix was a kinky toy – an expensive one at that!

4. The music is WAY too loud in retail shops these days – I’m trying to buy granny undies clothes not have a fugging dance party!

6. I wish all those organised people would stop trying to motivate me with positive posters and get their butts to my house and do the job for me.

Yes - this is one of my cupboards, any volunteers to come sort it out? Thought not

7. When I said to my son: “I’m going to put you down” I meant on the ground, someone obviously took my comment WAY out of context.

The son I often threaten to "put down".

8. No shit I’m cranky and look tired, I’ve basically been awake for the past five years with a few four-to-five hour breaks in between where I have been able to lie down and close my eyes.

9. If keeping my kids up later at night meant they’d sleep past 5.15am, I’d fed them blue lollies and throw them a disco party EVERY NIGHT.

10. Don’t be fooled by the cuteness of my youngest, he’s like a member of the Cullen family (Twilight vampire reference), he epitomises gorgeousness so when he rips your head off you are taken completely off guard.

No family is this good looking - well except mine of course.  Image source

Do you have anything you want to get off your chest? Would you be a starter for my club? Are you sick of being woken at 5.15 EVERY MORNING?

Another IBOT with Jess @ Essentially Jess
