One for Sharing! :: Apple Slice Recipe

this is a delightful recipe, that is so so soooooooooooo easy and very yummy. I found it in the 4 Ingredients 'red' cookbook.


1 x vanilla cake mix - the no name 70c ones

3/4 cup melted butter
400g tin pie apples (that is the original recipe - I use fresh apples, about 5 good sized granny smiths, peel, quarter and par cook in the m'wave for about 4 mins, then cut in half again)
200g Sour Cream

add melted butter to cake mix and combine to form a dough - press dough into a rectangular lined baking dish. Bake in a preheated 180 degree oven for 15 mins
combine sour cream & apple and pour over the base, top with cinnamon - as much or as little as you please.
return to the oven for a further 15 minutes.
cool in the fridge for a good couple of hours before removing from the dish and slicing - the longer it's in the fridge the better as it really needs to set.

I cut mine into squares for dessert or smaller rectangles for morning tea.

Moving Up in the Tech World...& Sewing...

Yesterday I became the new, and admittedly pretty proud, owner of a brand new Ultrabook. In my eyes, the Microsoft equivalent to a MacBook. But that's to a layman like me. In reality I'm sure I am way off.

I have an iPad and I love it, but for what I wanted the MacBook's were just too much of a financial investment. So I went on the hunt for something speedy (to handle my photos), something light (to carry around the house) and something smallish (to sit on my lap). AND it had to be within budget, and look okay too.

Two visits to Harvey Norman later - we have changed our HN of choice for purchases after receiving lackluster service at our original preferred store. And I walked out happy as a pig in the proverbial with a Toshiba Ultrabook - 4gb ram, 32mb SSD, 13.3 inch screen, and Windows 8! (But no touch screen)

Windows 8 is a trip. Everything has an app, so it's like your ipad, on a computer. But the standard desktop and Windows set up is running in the background - acc…

Be Yourself.

Heard this for the first time yesterday... it made me smile. Be yourself.

Taco Tuesday, Bunday Monday, Sunday Roast.

And so the list goes!
Many would be familiar with Taco Tuesday, and a definitive Aussie culture is the Sunday Roast.
My 6 year old last week coined Bunday Monday! This means on Mondays we eat buns with various fillings.
Week 1 was YIAH slow cooked pulled pork with homemade coleslaw, on brioche.
Week 2 was YIAH La Parissiene meat patties with salad - essentially a hamburger - on tiger buns.
It's not fancy, it only classifies as healthy because it's homemade and comes with salad but the most important thing about all of it is my 6 year old son is involved in the process.
He named the funny meal day after working to find a word that rhymes with Monday, he has chosen the bread rolls each week and as a result is keen to eat what's in them. 
Anyone with a six year old will understand the magnitude of a new food item being added to the revolving repertoire at this age. 
So If Bunday Monday means cucumber and lettuce being eaten, roll on next Monday!
