Mothers Day Wish List

I don't want for much. I have a beautiful family and pretty sweet life. But if someone really wanted to get me something for Mothers Day, this is what I'd want.

Bill Granger's Sweetcorn Fritters with Avocado Salsa for breakfast. Sadly, Bill's is in Sydney and I am in Canberra so someone (lovely husband, are you reading this?) would need to make it from the recipe in the Sydney Food cookbook I just happen to have on the bookshelf.

It's no secret I am obsessed with Italian food (well, all food, really...but let's focus for a minute). I would even make dinner on Mothers' Day if someone bought me this. Yummmmmmm.

I like the idea of having my girls close to my heart at all times. Each circle on the Kate necklace has a child's name and birth date...it's just beautiful. Want. Want. Want.

There are few things I like better than sinking my teeth into a good crime novel. Mo Hayder is one of my favourites - her books are dark, gritty and suspenseful. If someone bought me this, however, they would also need to take care of both girls all day so I could read it.

But if I couldn't have any of that, I'd like my littlest girl to get over her bronchiolitis and feel better again; my big girl to continue to be the delight she's been the last few days; and my lovely husband to not have to go away for work for a while...we miss him when he's gone.

It's the simple things...

I want to go to Bills for Mothers Day too. I always getting the hotcakes though, and every now and then I'll get the fritters. They're easy to make at home too.

Albeit a little dangerous though. I remember last time I had exploding corn going everywhere. Hubby has banned me from making them again!

Oh well. He just has to take me to Bill's then. x

I struggle with getting the batter cooked all the way through...nothing worse than your fritters being like underdone pancakes...
