Library book mayhem

We LOVE books! My 2 and a half year old is a very active boy, who amazingly enough will happily sit down and read 3 or 4 books with me… twice! (Read to them from day 1 even when you think they’re not very interested, it really pays off). So it’s not unbelievable that there are pretty much books scattered all over the house. So I’ve decided to start a book hamper just for the borrowed library books. I went online and got this gorgeous hamper with a removable insert bag so we could take it straight to the library! And… It’s in a central place between the kitchen and living room area. Also I’ve decided that its not a strict basket otherwise he may begin to despise the basket and its contents, but rather, a destination for the books hanging around the house. If I see a library book lying next to my bed, the floor, it now has a place to go! Plus when I’m rushing out the door, most of the library books are in the right place and easily found!

Quick and easy banana pikelets/pancakes for a snack

I’ve discovered these quick and easy protein snacks – Banana pikelets. Whip them up in about 5 minutes for hungry little tums!

1 mashed banana
1 egg lightly beaten
Two teaspoons flour (I use a gluten free mix at the moment)
Pinch of salt

Mix all together and drop spoonfills into a non-stick frypan (I grease with a touch of coconut oil).
Cook and flip after about 1-2mins per side (watch for little air bubbles to know when to flip)

Onto plate and into little tummies!
