Share your most Embarrassing / Funny Mum moments

Lately I have been thinking of all my embarrassing moments as a Mother. Probably because of all my fantastic fellow Mummy bloggers and their great posts and funny photo shares.

Over the years our kids have managed to embarrass us a lot. Ssh, don’t let them know because they may just try harder.

Last week Miss Moo and I had a sneaky visit to Bunnings. On our way out Miss Moo decided it was time to get out of the trolley and walk. Now this is fine and  Miss Moo was helping push the trolley until she decided that she needed to adjust her shoes right in the middle of the entrance aisle while insisting I assist her. So I did what every good Mum does and got down on the floor to help her. As I stood up I heard giggling and turned to see three teenagers looking in my direction. I felt a bit breezy around the back-end and reach around to realise that my Jeans were no longer covering my derrière  and my brightly striped underwear were showing. I quickly pulled up my Jeans and paid for my items in record time . Luckily Miss Moo is at an age that she isn’t embarrassed by me.

As I have got older I have found that I am not as embarrassed about things as I was when I was younger. I have also noticed that a lot of people seem to  worry less about embarrassing themselves as they get older. It’s almost like the filter has worn out for some people. I wonder if this will happen to Mr T & T and I , will we have the ability to embarrass our kids in public and not bat an eyelid (I say with a glint in my eye).

I am super excited this week to host my first competition on Facebook while also showcasing some stunning Jewellery.

Spanish Food

Thanks for coming to bring and share night with our family.

Our family enjoyed challenging our cooking skills and putting our chefs hats on to produce our Spanish inspired dishes this week.image

 

There were lots of Masterchef inspired comments and even though we tried our best Mr Wings didn’t do his Iron Chef inspired pose this week ( there is always next week) .  I have provided the links to the recipes online in the dish tittle,  just click on it and it will lead you to the site. I also need to let you know that this is not a sponsored post.
Included in the dishes review below is,  what the cook said,  review of dish ( no one had to be encouraged to play nicely for this part)  and the winner  ( three chefs hats).

Smashed chickpeas with spinach

What the cook said
This recipe was easy to follow and make. Nothing was changed in the ingredients and method when making this dish.
Review – Miss Teen
I’d definitely eat this again! Healthy, looks nice and tasted good too. Whilst i didn’t mind the plain taste some might find it too bland, some citrus flavoring in this dish would go a long way 7/10

Beef empanadas

What the cook said
I left out the mushroom in this dish because some people don’t like it.
If I made this again I would make some with mushrooms and some without.

Review – Mr Wings
Phew, I am so glad there were no mushrooms in this.  The pastry could have been a bit more crunchy and I would have cut the onions more finely. The chicken was cooked to perfection.

Spanish prawn and chorizo rice

What the cook said
I really love one pan dishes.
This recipe was fun to make and the only thing I would change is to add more chorizo next time.
Review – B1
It was delicious.  The prawns and chorizo tasted awesome together. Lemon slices as an option were great to. More chorizo would have been good.  Overall an awesome dish.

Summer pisto frittata

What the cook said
OOPS,  I left the asparagus out,  how sad. This dish wasn’t to hard to make.
Review – Myself
Something was missing from this dish for me.  Mmm I wonder what that was?? Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it and it looked great.  Just like Jamie Olivers (impressive),  but it needed another ingredient to replace the asparagus.
