The Sunday market

Another sun-shiny morning out with my cherubs at the local market. $59 for everything here. So lucky.



Another market haul and a potato pancake lunch

My children love to go to the market on a Sunday. This week we chose a tray of mangoes for $13. Yum! We buy yesterday’s bread loaves for $1 and look for plants to put in our garden. 20150204-053050-19850118.jpg
When we arrive home we open the cupboard and do some meal planning for the week. 20150204-053323-20003214.jpg
I made a potato pancake for lunch. It’s very easy. Grate one potato and press excess fluid out through a strainer. Add to a bowl with 1/4 brown onion finely diced, 1 large mushroom finely diced, 2 tbsp chickpea (besan) flour. Mix together. Add a small amount of water until moist enough to come together. Transfer to oiled, medium heat no. Stick fry pan. Cook for a few minutes until golden on the underside. Loosen from pan with spatula and gently invert onto a plate. Add more oil to the pan. Gently slide the pancake bake into pan and cook for another few minutes until golden brown. Serve with a drizzle of vegan mayonnaise and barbecue sauce and chopped salad vegetables.



We also made some pickled cucumbers.


Wholefoods goodness 🙂


Whistling Kite Collective has a new style

Oh my, what a hefty, wonderful few weeks. We held our first market stall and it went really well. I have also posted some bonnets and hats internationally. Hooray! I have been very busy sewing and now I make three hat designs. Want to see?

Sun Bonnets

Love a baby in a bonnet. Mine are fully reversible with adjustable chin straps. Oh, these are adorable on too. I make for boys and girls.

Fancy florals in bright colours are a beautiful on little girls.

Sun Buckets.

Finally stylish hats for little people. These have a generous brim, are fully reversible and come with a detachable, adjustable chin strap. The girls and boys fabric combinations are so fantastic. They are proving very popular.

Sun Cowboys.

A broad brimmed hat that converts to a cowboy hat. Superb! Available for girls and boys. Fully reversible with detachable, adjustable chin strap. This is an amazing hat. Built for serious mid-summer outside play. Think beach, desert, open woodlands and the back garden. This hat can rock them all.

Have a lovely week. Catch you soon.
