So now that I am back up and running here is my Cookbook Challenge, icy theme, mango & pineapple frozen fruit blocks. I loved them yet despite omitting the 'green' stuff I still couldnt convince the kids they were as good as the kind you get in a packet, oh well next time I will just stick to something chocolate flavoured, I did try & they do eat a lot of fresh fruit so I cant hold it against them!
Note - I omitted the mint 'green stuff' as it can have a tendency to turn off the kids no matter what it is or tastes like!
Also, sadly I will not be posting for picnic week as falafels & homus were on the menu & were a complete disaster, they completely fell apart & were inedible, didnt think you would want to read about plain old dip which was wonderful so as I'm bowing out for this week, sorry things are a bit mental here & dont have the time to come up with a new dish!
