Today I love….Free Rice

13 Jul

Well, well, well…..we finally seem to have a worthy “click” charity here….most of the ones I’ve found seem to be run by the dodgy brothers…..anyhoo…..

Some of you may or may not believe this – but my Mother found this one!

Yay Mum! What a legend she is….on the same bandwagon as her daughter….finding super cool stuff on the interweb…..

So…..how do we get the Free Rice!!??? No, it’s not free for you ya big douche! All you will get is (hopefully) a bigger brain….I bet you are sitting there in front of a computer in a nice warm place, at an actual D.E.S.K with fresh running tap water nearby I am sure…. this is for the United Nations World Food Program

* Click on the right answer in the middle of this page.

* If you get it right, you get a harder question. If you get it wrong, you get an easier question.

* For each answer you get right, we donate 10 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program.

Today I love….Banana Muffins

7 May

These are so damn easy you could even make them in the morning!

(if you are more organised than me!)

Picture Source

A nice treat for Mother’s Day and they take less than five minutes to mix and only twenty-five to bake, so piping hot, fresh muffins are ready in under 30 minutes!

Banana Muffins

2 cups self-raising flour
2-3 over-ripe bananas, mashed
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup chopped walnuts

Pre-heat oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Combine all ingredients, beating with a fork until just mixed. Pour into greased and floured or paper lined muffin tins. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool before icing with lemon icing or cream cheese frosting if desired.
