It was a busy day in the kitchen making yummy beef and vegetable soup, banana muffins, rat bait and cheesymite scrolls.

I don't know about you but I keep my bread crusts in a bag in the freezer and when there's enough, I make rat bait it's so simple to do and the kids (and hubby) love it.


Spray a tray with olive oil, place bread on tray then in a bowl mix up some bbq sauce, tomato sauce and Worcestershire sauce and spread onto the bread.

Add chopped bacon and I added torn salami as well this time.

Sprinkle grated cheese on top and bake in a 180 oven until bread is crisp.

When cool cut into fingers.


Once again so easy. Make bread dough and after rising, knock back and knead then roll out to a thin rectangle.

Spread vegemite with a knife and add grated cheese.

Gently roll up the dough.

Cut into scrolls and place on tray, allow space for rising and cook until brown.

And there you have it, lots of yummy snacks to enjoy.

I quit sugar over 2 weeks ago and there's been some highs and lows.  My first week went by quickly and with no cravings thanks to some wonderful recipes and advice from Sarah's book.  Week two was hard, I just wanted sugar!!!!  I only gave in once and really regretted it, I ate a small lamington finger and was headachy and nauseous for about an hour.  I'm not sure if it was in my head or not but I'm certainly not going to have anything else to find out.

One of the great things about Sarah's book is she uses a lot of the same ingredients for her recipes, most I already had in the pantry due to clean eating, so I only had to source a couple of products.

This is almond butter bark, just perfect for that sweet hit without the fructose.  The kids love it too so it disappears very quickly around here.

My 8 week detox really kicks in this week, I will be tested over the weekend when I go away to P!NK (eeek, so excited to see her again).  My bestie is a sugar addict.
