...Food and Recipes, General ramblings


We had a lot of fruit in the bowl, going a bit manky, and looking very sorry for itself

so in true thrifty housewife mode, I thought I would whiz it all up into a smoothie!

I chopped it all up, tried to hook out most of the watermelon seeds (I may be making it up, but I’m sure I remember reading somewhere that the seeds can be really bitter when they get whizzed up), added a handful of ice and a slug of lime and lemongrass cordial and blitzed the life out of it in the blender!

Mmmmmmm! The Smalls loved it, and when I eventually got to sample the last little bit left, I had to agree!
