Baking, freezing and chopping


Happy Australia Day Bad Housewives! Did you all have a good one? 
Our Aussie day was one that we had initially thought we would spend with friends at the local Dam, doing all manner of water related, outdoorsy things, but as Murphy's law dictates, it rained on and off all day, so we had our obligatory BBQ inside, caught up on tv series and movies that we've missed during the silly season, and enjoyed a few cold ciders. Yum. I also showed my skills in the kitchen, cooking the most fabulously Aussie scones - CWA packet mix, bless you old ladies that recognise some of us are capable of adding water to a bowl only.
oooh.... told you they were awesome!
 I also was inspired to get my brand spanking new Tupperware ice-block molds out and give them a whirl after seeing Danimezza's drool worthy ones she whipped up (we have the same molds, oooh special!).
So I sent the grumpy geek over to Woolies at 9:30pm with a list so we could make berrylicious Berry Ripe Ice Cream.
make sure you have napkins at the ready before looking at this...
Here's the recipe, because I know your going to be inspired by me now, that's how this thing works, right?

berry ripe ice cream

1 large can of light coconut milk
1 box of frozen berries
1/4 cup of grated chocolate
1/4 cup of caster sugar

method
  1. Grate the chocolate into a blender jug and combine with coconut milk. 
  2. Add berries and process until smooth. Pour into molds and freeze for at least 6 hours, or until frozen. 
  3. Remove from molds, and proceed to place into your open mouth, enjoying its scrummyness. 

Oh, btw Tupperware, your ice block molds are soooo great. #justsaying .

Oh and I also had a big change over the weekend. I decided to take pity on my poor undeserving hair. It just hasn't bounced back from 9 months of pregnancy, 13 months of breastfeeding and general neglect since then. I've been losing handfuls of it every day through brushing and breakage. Yes, I've blogged many times about how I just don't do in between length hair well, but in the hope that it can grow back quickly, I decided against a super short cut and went the dreaded mid length! Here's the new me...

 
A a good friend has cheered me up saying I look younger. Imagine that! Why is the long hair to short hair process is so painful?  I think I hold onto long hair in hope of never having the dreaded mum hair. You know what I mean... Anyways, when I get bored of it, there's always hair extensions.
