Friday Favourites

Happy happy Friday! Today I can’t help but be a bit extra excited since we have another public holiday here in Australia today for Anzac Day, our national day of remembrance. Every year they hold a dawn service, I’ve never made it before but one year I definitely want to go.

Today my bestie Amanda and I are going out for brunch, if the weather holds up I’m planning on doing my first run outside in ages to meet her there. Not sure how I’ll go running back with a stomach full of brunch but I can only try. Later today Nick and I have a BBQ at one of his friend’s houses who is making us slow cooked ribs, yum.

Tomorrow I’m going to a Christening for a friend who is the godmother of the child. Then later that night we’ve organised some combined belated birthday drinks with friends for Nick and I. Needless to say it is going to be a jam packed weekend. Phew.

Here’s my Friday Favourites this week…

Friday Favourites

937d77ca488043e23ca67dcb5b4aa6ca

My favourite slow cooker idea of the week is this Slow Cooker Rice Pudding. I’ve finally got a slow cooker and I’m just started to figure out what I can do with it, so if you’ve got some good recipes, let me know!

My frivolous want to buy of the week is this Clean All The Things t-shirt. I would wear it when I do a big clean which I definitely tend to do. Yes it is completely impractical being white and would probably get dirty, details, details ;)

My favourite funny of the week. Yep I know it is a bit wrong. SorryNotSorry ;)

SAMSUNG CSC

My favourite healthy food idea / food photography of the week are these Beet and Kale chips. I’m not a huge beetroot fan and I’ve never eaten Kale chips (must change that) but these look and sound amazing.

My favourite necklace of the week. Any jewellery when it is turquoise I am always immediately drawn to it, which is funny because I don’t actually own much of it.

My favourite food porn of the week is these Kit Kat Cheesecake Bars. OMG yum! Kit Kat’s are my favourite, cheesecake is Nick’s favourite, def one I need to make one time.

Favourite chocolate bar? As I said mine is definitely Kitkats all the way.

    Oooh – those bars – looking at them, I could say Kit kats are my fav – but I would be cheating on my real favs: Cadbury’s!
    I have been running on a treadmill for most of the winter – yesterday was my first outdoor run and it was AH-MAZING! Hope you enjoy yours! Love the tshirt! Love the funnies! Would Love it if we had a holiday here in Atlanta for Anzac day too! Oh well… :) Hope your weekend is fantabulous lady!

    Happy Friday! Although it’s still only Thursday in Western Canada. Sigh. Slow cooker desserts?! I never thought of this. We’ve only every used it for chili and pulled pork, not terribly creative. You should definitely try kale chips, they’re delicious and so so easy

      Happy now Monday ;)

      Pulled pork and chilli sounds delicious though! I’m still trying to get the hang of mine.

      I definitely need to try making Kale chips.

    These were all great! Sounds like you have a jam-packed weekend! Those kit-kat cheesecake bars look amazing, I loved the colorblind rubix cube, and kale chips are one of my favorite things ever. I make really easy BBQ ones but massaging the kale with a teeny bit of olive oil and salt, then BBQ sauce. I bake them at 360F for about 15 minutes. So. Good. Have a great weekend!

      Oo I will have to try out your bbq sauce kale chips recipe as they sound delicious!

      I hope you had a lovely weekend my dear.

    Aww, i’m jealous you get a long weekend! I could really use one of those now!

      Hopefully you will get one soon. I hope you had a nice weekend in any case.

    I’m a little jelly that you always have something on for your weekends! I love a good stay-at-home day as much as the next person, but lately the weekends have been stay-at-home-stay-pyjamas all weekend.

    The weather is supposed to be nice all day, perfect for a nice run! :D

    The fringe necklace kind of reminds me of Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra, or perhaps just all statement jewelry reminds me of her :P

    I hope I don’t exaggerate this, but for a small amount of food prep, a slow-cooker will change your life. Not just because it means the meal is cooked and waiting for you, but when you get home and open the front door the first thing that greets you is the smell of deliciousness.

    Bon weekend :)

      Well don’t be too jelly, I ended up having to cancel half of what was on as I ended up being sick.

      The weather was great for a fun indeed.

      Definitely very Cleopatra!

      I hope that it does, I’m still getting the hang of it, I tried making a beef casserole and it turned out more like beef soup and I had to drain heaps of the liquid. I can see though once I do manage to get the hang of it how much easier it will make my life ;)

      I hope you had a Bon weekend too! hehe

      P.S. I loved it ;)

      Hm I still need to try them – kale chips that is, I don’t think I’d like beet chips ;)

    I always loved expensive bitter chocolate, but recently I am literally obsessed with Twix! It is very strange because I never loved it… Times change!

      Yes your taste for things can definitely change over time. I never used to like dark chocolate but now I love it :)

    Kit Kat cheesecake bars?!? OMG. I’ve been to one dawn service and it was honestly one of the worst experiences of my life. Not the service itself, but the events leading up to it. Long story but it was enough to put me off going again!!

      Oh no that doesn’t sound like it was a good day at all! When I mentioned going one year to Nick he seemed very unenthusiastic about the idea :)

    Beet chips? Genius! Good as kale chips? I’ll have to find out.

      This one is different to Australia Day which is back in January. Australia Day is when pretty much all Australians have a BBQ as it is the middle of Summer. Anzac day is more a day of remembrance :)

      I hope you had a lovely weekend my dear.

    Haha that colorblind pic made me laugh out loud. Too funny! Sounds like you have such an awesome weekend planned. I’ve got a girls night tonight, then just doing stuff around town the rest of the weekend. Hopefully getting outside for a run at some point since the weather will be nice. We’ll see!
