Yesterday marked the end of Daylight Savings here in New Zealand so we had to put our clocks back an hour. So, the kids went to bed at their usual time of 7:30 pm and woke up at their usual time of 7:30am. Except, one didn’t – Princess was up earlier than usual, so, in conjunction with Daylight Savings, she was up at five thirty. Which wouldn’t be too horrific had BabyGirl (and I) not gone to bed at 2am. Yes, you are reading correctly. Needless to say, we have had some pretty tired and cranky kids today.
And, then we went to a friend’s birthday party, Master turned one! It was a fun and relaxing party during which we ate too much delicious food and the kids ate so much sugar that it was as though their entire souls had been replaced by a mash up of Road Runner, Damien from The Omen and … well .. someone really loud.
What do you feed your kids dinner on a day like today? Desperate to fill Princess’s tummy with something other than sugar before bed, she had a bowl of WeetBix for her dinner. She thought it was a hoot, having breakfast for tea, and she wolfed it down. For the rest of us, Corn and Bacon Fritters. I asked Mr T if he wanted anything with it and he said no, that was fine. Side bar: I think he is really missing fish and chips. Think? I know he is. Because he tells me. Regularly. But, we are on the home stretch now, only seven days to go!
Corn and Bacon Fritters
1 440g Can Creamed Corn
3/4 C Self Raising Flour
Cook the bacon and then set aside. Mix in a bowl the flour and eggs, and then add the corn. Add in the bacon and fry in oil until brown and cooked. The key to these coming out nice, is to keep the element on a medium heat – too hot and they burn, too cool and they don’t cook properly. Serve with tomato sauce (Mr T) or sweet chilli sauce (me).
Good enough for a Sunday evening, when we are too tired to care. All we are concerned about now is getting these “children” to bed. And by children, I mean Little Horrors. Whom I love. Dearly.
