Lunch Time – A Tasty Alternative!

I have been wanting to make this for a while. I’m not really a massive fan of pizza, I prefer something lighter. I can also be quite funny about warm food on a warm day. Therefore, this is perfect for me – plus I had all the ingredients already in my kitchen!

These are lovely, healthy, tasty and quick! I haven’t thought of a name yet but I’m hoping by the end of this post I’ll have thought of one…

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 mozzarella ball
  • 2 small tomatoes

That is all you will need for the variation I’m making today! But of course, like a normal pizza, you can put almost anything on it.

And this is just how simple it is…

1) Toast bread

2) While you bread is toasting, slice mozzarella and tomatoes. And switch on the grill.

3) Once your toast pops, put the topping on and slide it under the grill.

4) Watch it for a couple of minutes until it is grilled to how you like it (as you can see I like mine so the cheese is all melted on the outside but not on the inside but my tomatoes are all lovely and soft)

5) Eat 🙂

Next time I think it will need… basil or capers or anchovies. This was very mild, next time high flavour! Maybe even something a bit spicier!

Alice in Wonderland Cupcakes

I just saw someone else had posted some ice-cream cupcakes so I thought I’d show you a selection of cupcakes me and my sister made for an Alice in Wonderland party two years ago.

These, obviously, aren’t very Alice but we wanted lots of weird and wonderful food. Ice-cream cupcakes are so easy to make and people are always impressed!

The ones in the picture are simply basic cake mix, about half fill each cone. Then a good dollop of butter cream topped with sprinkles!

I think if i was going to make them again I would definitely put some treats in the cone i.e chocolate or marshmallows! Because it would melt it would certainly make a great surprise. We found these were deceptively large! And plain cake and cone can be very boring…

We also made our own lemonade and used drink me labels, bought lots of brightly coloured sweets and made a rabbit shaped jelly (which soon became vodka jelly once my friends got hold of it).

As well as these cute little cupcakes…
