{A Left Overs Make Over : Black Forrest Bites}

Well, as my last post "The Lorax Party" shows, I had made a mega cake for the party. Afterwards I had about half of the three layer cake left over. I was keen to get these calories off my kitchen counter and share them around. So, this was my plan:

{The Lorax Birthday Party}

My (then) 5 year old son took me on a movie date a few months ago during his first ever school holidays in Kindy. We watched the Lorax and we both LOVED it. The environmental message is so well explained and interspersed with much humor, colour and catchy songs.
So here are the photos of my interpretation of Dr Seuss' delightful world. I apologize if there are a few ;)

{Dude Food for Origin}

Last night was State of Origin. I am not normally a football fan, however, I always watch origin. I love it (except when the blues go down AGAIN!). 
Hubby and I had a few of his mates over for game 1 and 3 and last night was a big match.
So, a BIG dude food menu was in order. I love brainstorming this stuff with my brother and we came up with this idea:

- Mini Cheeseburger Sliders with a Homemade Brioche Bun
I just made mini rissoles, with a 1/4 slice of colby cheese melted on each, tomato, rocket and ketchup/ mustard.
- Beer Battered Onion Rings  
First time making these and was hoping they'd turn out. BIG SUCCESS!!!

- Steak Fries  
(These I just cooked and kept warm in the slow cooker as an additional side / security in case the onion rings didn't work).

Recipe for the Brioche was inspired by {this} but I found it slightly confusing so I'll have re-typed it below.
