Edamame beans

Edamame beans are now widely available in your supermarket, sold frozen and shelled. No need to cook them, simply thaw them in some water for 10 minutes or thaw overnight in the fridge.

Edamame are packed full of fibre and contain all the essential amino acids, making them a complete source of protein. Got to love that!

Keeping the ‘smash’

The smash keeps well in an airtight container for 2-3 days. Adding the lime juice helps to keep the avocado from turning brown.

Coo Coo just loves his soft toys. We hit the jackpot for finding suitable soft, cuddly and adorable mates for him at our local charity shop. They have a huge collection of them tumbled into a second hand babies cot, and at just $1 a piece, they are a bargain.

This is Coo Coo when he just received his new mates, and his excitement shows. He goes bonkers not knowing which one to ‘mouth’ first. But this colourful caterpillar that makes a jingling bell sound won hands down as his current favourite.
