Snack time

School is back now and the kiddoes are doing their best to get up in the morning and get moving. As they get older, the school terms become busier and they really need that extra time to rest and relax.

On Sunday, the last day of the holidays, we spent a fairly relaxing day at home with lots of reading, drawing and DVD watching.

By around 3pm, the calls of  'I'm hungry' started and 'There's plenty of fruit in the basket' just didn't cut it. Something a little more substantial was needed. With chickpeas and tahini in the cupboard, the decision was a bit of a not brainer. Hummus.

I had also come across a great Hugh (sigh)  flat bread recipe via Mean Mother Cooker and was keen to give it a go. So easy and fabulously delicious. This recipe has also come in really handy this week for making lunches as an early morning batch can make its way into lunchboxes before anyone can say 'We're out of bread'. It is amazing to think that this entire batch cost probably less than 50c whereas a pack from the supermarket can be between $3 and $4.

The circles of bread were each cut into 8 pizza style triangles and topped with dip. Yum.

I am now on the hunt for more non-cake afternoon tea ideas. Any ideas?

Take care

  1. I posted this recipe too, Hugh's recipes are amazing. The flat breads are a favourite here for breakfast- filled with a fried egg, mushrooms and avocado.
    As for afternoon snacks- mini quiches, fruit smoothies, fritters, rice paper rolls.

    1. Oh, Zara. You are so right. We had this bread with scrambled egg on the weekend. Delicious. I must say, we even mentioned at the time that we were looking forward to the spinach to be ready to add to the mix.
      Thanks for the inspiration. All of these options sound fabulous.


Thanks so much for dropping by. I really appreciate any comments you have to make.
