Double Egg Dip

So kid #2 is finally back from her school trip to the UK. She had a whale of a time although I suspect the teachers did not because we chatted with one of her teachers at the airport who said that she was getting too old for this kind of overseas school trip! In keeping … More Double Egg Dip

In fact a busy okonomiyaki stall … More Low Carb Okonomiyaki (Japanese Savoury Pancake)
