What To Do with Veggies You Hate

[This post is in collaboration with Behold! A Mythical Creature!]

Like a lot of you, we’re not big on vegetables. There’s some that are top tier, always the best no matter what you do, and then it kind of just trickles down from there.

So when my mum gave me a box of free vegetables, I placed them all out and stared at the disappointment, knowing these little parcels are good for the body but by god they sucked. Throwing them out is never an option.
Minds had to come together once more and think about how to utilise these unappealing veg in the best way possible, for the picky eaters, food and texture sensitive and begrudging people of the world.

Also, you sites out there with the titles “Vegetables You Think You Hate”, no, I know I hate these stupid vegetables, don’t think you’re making me join your vegetable cult.

Lately, I have been trying to get back into a groove of making my own snacks which… hasn’t gone as well as I remember it before a long time ago. One night, though, The Evil Assistant and I were watching a food compilation, I’m pretty sure it was a Tasty one, and I saw rice Krispies with four ingredients.

So, I gave it a go.

I’m Hungry, Let’s Make Damper

Today, my dudes, we’re going to do some eatin’, and what better way to do that than through simple carbs. My mum’s going to hate this (love you, ma!).

I was thinking about something simple and easy that can be made by anyone, especially since we’re still in the middle of a pandemic. Enter the iconic Australian damper!

Happy Halloween!

From us to you, we wanted to wish all of you a happy Halloween! We hope you enjoyed all of our posts, I’m so damn tired now and if I see another pumpkin anything, I’m going to puke.

 

Before we take a week break to get caught up on some things, let’s christen this budget Barbie camper of a month with some Shirley Devil Temples!

Keeping your Shirley Temple’s grenadine red is awesome and Halloweeny, but since we’ve been making things black we might as well make the grenadine black too!

Get your drinkware and pour whatever soda you wish; it’s usually a lemon-lime soda, 7-Up or Mountain Dew, however, we had a can of Solo and some lemon lime & bitters chilling in the back of the fridge so.. waste not, want not.
Pour syrup into your glasses slowly then add a squeeze or two of black gel food colouring or to your liking. As it swirls round-and-round it darkens, taking on a purple or green colour!
We really hope you have a happy and safe Halloween, thank you so much for popping around and we’ll see you next week when I come out of Halloween-coma!
