Another good thing about this that the price is $3 right now at your local Woolworths store.

Yesterday, I had the chance to have my hands on the McDonald’s Adult Happy Meal aka the Kerwin Frost Box who is an Entertainer as we know it. Unlike the regular Happy Meal for kids, you can only either have the medium or large size options for about $14-15 compared to like $6 with the usual kids meal. The good news though that you can have the Big Mac or a few pieces of McChicken Nuggets as well as French Fries and also the drink & sauce of your choice as the one I got here is a cup of Sparkling Iced Water & tomato ketchup. I wished I would go with the Big Mac then I don’t eat beef including dairy cheese as can only eat meats like chicken, ham, turkey & pork. But unfortunately there’s still no McChicken wrap, grape tomatoes, apple slices or even Yoghurt which would’ve been complimentary friendly to the adult one. The ones I also liked about the Adult Happy Meal is you will always take home a free mini toy like the kids one. Although I would have liked to choose the Brick mascot toy if I had the chance, but happy to take home the Kerwin Frost toy instead.  All in all it tastes great as always having seen the Adult Happy Meal finally made it way here this week, having first released it in the US two years ago. If you want to have a try & think it’s worth the $15 to relive these memories, then go for it as otherwise it will only last for short time while you can before it will be all gone. So go have your own Adult Happy Meal moment today at a McDonald’s near you.

Well, last week’s special review with the Don Is Good sliced ham, turkey and salami range when it was like $3.20 at the time has now gone back up to $6. So hope you enjoyed it while it lasted which tasted so good and can use it a bit longer for any topping you like want at anytime, especially when life is so busy to go through each passing day. If you missed out on this, don’t fret as got another sliced ham pack you can take advantage of right now at just $3 for the next few days as selected by Woolworths thanks to D’Orsgona, whose HQ for producing meat is over in the heart of Western Australia since 1949.

Now the number of slices in there might be halved compared to Don’s packaged sliced hams but they still taste well the same & you can even close and re-open the pack by itself for later or the next day too unlike most other sliced ham products. As said, there’s a few you can choose from for your perfect lunchtime meal such as Mild Salami, Double Smoked Ham, Free Range Chicken, Champagne Leg Ham, Lightly Smoked Leg Ham, Spicy Chorizo Salami, Sweet Honey Leg Ham & Lightly Smoked Turkey. There’s also a few recipes that can inspire you too that featured a few of their products whether if it’s pasta, sandwiches/wraps, salads or party snacks on the Woolworths website, so make sure you get one now at your local store.

Here’s something you can buy off the shelves right now in your local Woolworths store with the ready-to-eat Don sliced ham at just 1/2 price of $3.20. It’s perfect for nearly all occasions such as pasta, salads or a sandwich/wrap for your lunch time meal including some occasional dinners & appetizers too. The best part is you can get these in any flavour you like such as English leg ham, a variety of Salamis including Mild Hungarian & Italian Style, Honey Leg Ham, English Leg Ham, Champagne Leg Ham, Double Smoked Ham and Turkey & it has up to 20 slices on it so you can eat them out for the whole week – how good!!

Don’t wait, make sure you buy one while you can right now through the end of tomorrow like I’ve got from the other day with the Turkey flavour when the Don is good who treats you good by trying out with his delicious line-up of his packaged ham!!

Yesterday, I found out something interesting at my local Coles store where I fortunate to buy the last packet of the brand new Vegan Prawn Crackers Sea Salt flavour from Vege Chips. Unlike the prawn chips out there that has a bit of prawn meat & Crustacea, they are indeed dairy-free and egg free and it was so good to eat once I opened the packaging myself during my midday snack treat at home. I couldn’t believe they have these having last tasted prawn chips a long time ago but now I can enjoy tasting them again in a different way that suits one’s dietary requirements/limitations thanks to Vege Chips.

Although I’m aware that Vege also released their new fusions Asian crisps range (one in Corn & the other in Vege), but don’t think this is for me since it has onion and some chillies & spices on it. I can’t wait to buy them again next time whenever possible including the BBQ pack which also suits me well likewise with their usual chips range every now & then. Make sure you try it for yourself if you’re able to find one at your local Coles supermarket store at a special price right now of $3.15.

Here’s a sweet dessert you can have on the go or at home in none other than having red beans on it with Herbal Jelly from Sunity. Now it doesn’t have the liquid on the cup unlike most other herbal jelly products that you find at an Asian convenience store but what it comes up in order to have a brilliant taste is that you got a packet of coconut cream and honey as well as a mini plastic spoon When I tasted it, it wasn’t bad at 7 out of 10. Although I substituted honey with maple syrup which is my preferred way of tasting, but I do prefer eating the normal herbal jelly with the liquid on it – nothing else. As said, you can see it for yourself at an Asian supermarket near you which would be perfect for a morning or afternoon treat.

Here’s a healthy dinner/lunch meal that you can eat in just a couple of minutes at home in none other than the instant mashed potatoes mix that is dairy free & gluten free from Plantasy Foods. All you have to do is add some water onto the saucepan, then turn the stove on low-medium heat for a few minutes. Once the water has been boiled, you can add 1/3 cup of mix as well as some salt, oil and rice milk by simmering it for a while you before you turn the heat off & here goes your dairy free mashed potatoes that is now ready to eat!! So easy!! You can also add rosemary or parsley seasoning on top if you like!!

For a better dairy-free or vegan roast dish, a Massel rich gravy style mix would be a great compliment to add the saucing in as they also tick all the boxes. Plus, you can add some steamed vegetables there too like peas and corn. When it comes to the meats, you can have pork, pork belly, turkey, ham or chicken in there or if you’re vegan then you can have plant-based meat or brisket too! But wait there’s more as this dairy-free mashed potatoes mix can also be a great side dish with the Massel gravy on it alongside chips as if I’m recreating one from KFC myself, which does contain milk from the restaurant itself.

So there you have it, the only way to buy these products is online which will take a few days for delivery such as eBay or if you’re lucky then some IGA supermarket stores should have them in stock.

I found an amazing way that you can enjoy eating corn fritters that is not only dairy free but also egg free with the replacement of the vegan scrambled egg mix at home.

All you have to do is grab your small bowl out by adding some salt alongside a tablespoon of the vegan egg mix, two tablespoons or flour & 2-3 tablespoons of creamed corn or corn purée by mixing them up for 1-2 minutes.

Then coat some oil on a pan with low-medium heat by splitting a few pieces there by using a silicone spatula. Wait 2 minutes first before you turn the other side with a wooden spatula by letting it cook the other side for the other two minutes before it’s all golden brown & ready to eat!! It’s not just so easy to make but also delicious too that is great for snacks alongside some tomato sauce as well as those who seek a meat free/vegan diet.

See it for yourself when you can try your very own dairy free and egg free corn fritters at home!!

Here’s some homemade tater tots/potato gems that you can make & enjoy to eat at home! First of all, grab 1-2 potatoes or one large size potato by peeling the skin off before you grate them until it’s all been shredded.

Then squeeze the excess water and starch out with a cloth/paper towel onto the sink and transfer these shredded potatoes into a bowl along with some flour & a few sprinkles of salt. Mix them up as you can your hands to split and shape these into a bunch of tiny potato balls before you rest these tater tots in the fridge or freezer for about an hour. Now it’s time to throw a bunch of tater tots that you’ve made from scratch onto the air fryer & make sure you cook them first at 190 degrees for 10 mins before you toss them to the other side & have it cooked again for another 5-6 mins. And once these tater tots have been cooled down for a while (like after 5-10 mins), these excellent tiny potato balls are ready to eat! Yum!!

They’re even a fantastic match as a side dish with the homemade pizza I’ve made for lunch yesterday alongside the tomato and avocado topping & also the homemade pizza sauce inside it with a mix of both tomato paste & tomato sauce!

Here’s an air-fryer pizza recipe that you can make at home by starting off with 1/4 teaspoon of nutritional yeast as well as close to 1/4 cup of warm water & 1/4 teaspoons of sugar onto a bowl.

Mix them well and cover the yeast for a while between 30 mins-1 hour, then add 1/2 cup of flour (and continue to add a few teaspoons to it as long as it’s no longer sticky), 1/2 teaspoons of oil and some salt on top of the activated yeast by kneading it for a few minutes before you coat the pizza dough with another few drops of oil and cover it again up to one hour in order for this to rise. After that, you can shape the dough up using your hands to fit around the pizza tray size of your choice at home including the circle edges with some sprinkles of flour.

Now it’s time for the cooking process to begin and in order for the pizza crust to taste really good on both sides is you first cook it without any sauce and toppings alongside some oil at 185 degrees celsius for the first five minutes and then flip it over by coating the other side with oil to cook the bottom part for the other five minutes. Once you can see some crispiness on both sides of the crust, you can then add your pizza sauce alongside a variety of toppings (make sure you don’t overload it though) and put it back for another 10-12 minutes depending on how thick the crust is (eg. Thin or deep pan).

And that is it after letting the pizza cool for a while before cutting a few slices where you can see some nice good edges & a middle that makes a homemade pizza so good!! You can have it for lunch and if you want to have another pizza the next day, all you have to do is cut the dough in half before you save it into the fridge by covering it up with a plastic wrap and when you’re ready, repeat the above same process & your pizza will still be delicious to eat without having to order one elsewhere!!
