It has been a while since I have had the time to come to this blog. A lot has changed, but the past year has given me the extra appreciation of the gift of time. Time to sit down and listen, time to reflect and most importantly the time to do housework and cook for my loved ones in peace. It is a blessing that I had taken for granted until it was taken away for a period of three months. Thankfully that period is over and I can now once again enjoy being at home, with the precious boys and the kitchen.

Today, I prepared a recent discovery for a post-swim snack: Zucchini Fritters. Yes, I perhaps should experiment with baking these yummy, golden discs to make them healthier. However, these are just so flavourful as they are. All of us generally forget that each patty is full of veggies. Try them, eat them hot or at room temperature.

Ingredients:

1 large zucchini, grated
1 carrot, grated (I used purple ones, feel free to use normal, orange ones)
1 yellow onion, grated

Mix all the grated ingredients in a bowl, add 1 tsp of salt, leave for 10 minutes. Drain, place all in a clean tea towel and squeeze dry. Place back in bowl.

Add to the vegetable mixture the following:

1 beaten egg
1/4 cup chopped, fresh spring onions
a handful of fresh coriander, chopped fine
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup flour + 1/2 tsp baking powder

Mix all, form little patties. Heat oil for shallow frying. Fry till golden.

Drain and blot with paper towels.

Married to MrLeft for the past 15 years, our proudest accomplishment is our 7 year old cub. I work full time, while juggling motherhood, wifehood and with the fawn's help, run the household in between meeting deadlines. I love cooking and baking and my happiness in life is in making lists and plans and devising schedules, processes and systems to run everything efficiently and minimise chaos. I believe that all employers need to implement flexible HR policies that maximise work-life balance, and protect the family unit. A happy, balanced person will always outperform a stressed, overworked and worried person at the workplace.
