With Spring bringing warmer weather I often find that by supper time I’m not that hungry and like to enjoy a green salad. My Rocket and feta salad is one on my favourites to just quickly whip up for the family. It also makes a yummolicious side for your next braai.
Here is how you can make it :
Almond slivers (a handful)
Feta cubes (500g)
Pumpkin seeds (a handful)
Sesame seeds (a handful)
In a salad bowl toss your Rocket leaves, cubed feta, almond, sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds.
Season with salt and pepper
Drizzle with raspberry vinegar.
Toss to mix.
I enjoy this salad as a stand alone meal, but it would be great with a braai or summer meal
Every little child dreams of becoming an astronaut and traveling in a giant rocket ship to the moon. I know that Hamish has been fascinated with space travel since we visited the Canal Walk Space centre a few years ago. Since then we have has many new space lessons and activities in our homeschool classroom, but one of his favourite treats is astronaut tea.
You can make your little space explorer their own astronaut tea in just a few minutes.

It’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of Ucook meal boxes.
So, when we were asked to become ambassadors for them I was delighted to represent a brand I absolutely love.
