Motherhood has rendered my brain cells stupid. As a blogger presenting a new recipe it is the norm to have a pithy story to warm up the reader into the post. Something that draws them and want to keep reading. I write my blog posts at night now and it probably isn't the best time of day to try and form a coherent sentence. I don't have anything super interesting and pithy to share with you. Oh I can tell you that my 2.5 year old toddler and I played horsey in the yard today. I was the horse and he was the rider. I don't think my back will ever be the same. I cut his sandwiches into star shapes to try and get him to eat his lunch. It worked for today at least. I had gooing and gahing conversations with our now 3 1/2 month old Little Miss. It made my heart melt just a little more. Oh and she is now rolling over. A tiny tear was shed. My baby is growing up to fast. I sat outside on the grass in the late afternoon with Little Miss ensconced in a blanket while hubby and J.D played in the sand pit together. It was nice to breath the late afternoon air and scrunch my toes up in the grass. I then made this Thai Style Pork Stirfry with Cauli-Rice for dinner. It was a fitting meal to end the day on.
I am always on the lookout to create different dishes using mince. I have my staple mince dishes such as spaghetti, lasagna, rissoles etc but on the days I don't feel like the same old same old I like to have something tasty up my sleeve to make. This dish delivers on the tasty promise and it makes great use of a pack of mince plus it's pretty budget friendly. Make sure you stick this dish in your monthly meal planner and it's a great way to sneak some veggies into the kids. The cauli-rice was a pleasant surprise with this stir-fry dish. I hadn't tried this yet and it was on my to do list to make. I'd made a cauliflower based pizza before but hadn't got round to making cauli-rice. It was a nice change to the usual rice accompaniment and the little guy didn't mind it either. I found it so easy to make and honestly it doesn't have a overpowering cauliflower flavour like you might think it would. I will be making it again that's for sure.
