It used bugged me that unfinished bread loaf was thrown away because it had turned moldy. Friends’ recommendation is to keep it in fridge to maintain its freshness.

Since the beginning of this year, the breakfast timing at Leah’s school was being pushed to a later time, I was not able to make sure she takes her breakfast in school. Hence, I feel there’s a need to let her have something before heading to school.

It’s quick fixed meal and Leah had fun helping out!

Steel-cut oat is the least processed kind of oats. They are removed from the outer husks, then machine cut into pieces. That’s why they are called steel-cut. Apparently, they are more nutrients for the same amount consumed in comparison to instant and rolled oats. Continue reading
Earlier this year when preparing for a holiday trip, my first priority was to think of ways to keep Leah who was 2y4mo, entertained in her pram. Food/snack was one, the other that I thought of was game. One of the few that I handmade was “Learn to Button” game. I have been wanting to do a tutorial but since Leah’s “Learn to Button” flower garden game set was completed and no photo was taken, I procrastinated. This particular car version is for a boy, I took this chance to take photos and do up this tutorial. Continue reading
