A little bit of different preparation in my kitchen today! Just made my general cleaner & washing powder. Both of these help me save $ and lead more of a low toxic life.

In my kitchen today. Miss 12 & I made a frittata for school lunches tomorrow - simply egg, tuna & corn. We also made salted caramel popcorn slice. Miss 14 & her friend made choc fudge cupcakes (that they turned into a slice)

It's quite cool here in Tasmania today so I'm popping this together for dinner. It's an easy one to throw together & then just heat up as people come & go from Sport tonight at different times.

For my family of 6 I make two batches in the TMX (separately) & then there is enough leftover for hubby's lunch too!

Happy Thursday!
