A Week Wiser

Well, this post is more like A Few Weeks Wiser… I haven’t done one of these in a while and I’m going to cover a few things I’ve learnt over the last few weeks Wendy’s do the teeniest little frosty dairy desserts ever. Just look at how ridiculous the husband looks… then look at that…

What has befounded me this week? In the last A Week Wiser post, I was talking about the baby’s descent being measured in fifths. There seems to be  worldwide confusion among pregnant ladies as to what number gets recorded, me included. I thought 2/5 meant the amount that can still be felt above the pelvis.…

What have I learnt this week? Not having a functioning oven is an inconvenience. You can’t bake anything, including cupcakes! ArtPop popcorn is the most disgusting microwave popcorn I’ve ever had. It smells like cheese and literally made me feel a little sick just from the smell. Ick. I’ve really missed sushi. Even homemade involves…

I have learnt this week: It’s ridiculous driving when you’re 33 weeks pregnant and only 5 ft tall… The Lindale Centre does smell funny when you visit on a sunny day Kapiti Cumin Gouda cheese is yum yum You must be patient waiting for white chocolate ganache too cool down. Unlike dark chocolate ganache, a…

This week I have learnt The Good World restaurant in Lower Hutt doesn’t do yum char so well. We’ll stick to The Regal in town. Making marshmallows is a very sticky business. Glad the hubby took that challenge on. Yummy result though. Buying prepacked fruit can be a let down. First it was kiwifruit in…

This week I have found that Giving your dog Gingernuts before a road trip does not guarantee that he won’t throw up in the car. At least I have the preggy excuse so the hubby has the job of cleaning up the messes – yes, plural. Fez threw up three times on our trip to…

What have I learnt this week? Grilled tortillas are no substitute for naan bread. I was hopeful but failed. I really need a good naan bread recipe – have tried many but none compares to the ones from the restaurants. Mocktail slushies made from lychees or jackfruit are really good. Even better enjoyed on a…

I have learnt this week… Fez cannot be trusted to stay put when the front door is open. Marshmallows make a great cupcake topper. However cupcakes still require a certain amount of frosting or they’ll taste quite boring. Never ever store precut/left-over onions in the fridge, or anywhere for that matter. They stink! There are…

My learnings this week… Have tissues handy at all times, especially if you’re sneezy like me and require emergency booger control. Have a mirror handy at all times. Especially handy after emergency booger control because sometimes you don’t control it all. If you’re 28 weeks pregnant, don’t over indulge in curly fries and rhubarb pie…
