Following record dry conditions,Farmers in rural Australia are in dire straights. As costs spiral & conditions worsen, even putting food on the table is becoming too hard for some families.
Dress up as a farmer on Friday 17th September and make a donation in whatever way possible to support the farmers.👌 … See MoreSee Less
Did you try these Mac and Cheese Bombs? they are so delicious and satisfying…
Its a definite winner with children and the whole family. I tried this with a home made version of Mac and Cheese and it was still amazing. Give it a try and let us know how it goes…
1 box/packet macaroni and cheese, plus ingredients called for on box/packet.
1 1/2 c. Shredded Tasty cheese(Bega or Cheer)
1 1/2 c. shredded Cheddar
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 c. all-purpose flour
Freshly ground black pepper
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 tbsp. milk
2 c. bread crumbs
Finely chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
Vegetable oil, for frying
Prepare macaroni and cheese according to package instructions. While the macaroni and cheese is still hot, stir in cheddar, Tasty cheese and cayenne until the cheese is completely melted. Transfer mac and cheese to a large bowl, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours.
Set up a dredging station: In a small shallow bowl, season flour with salt and pepper. In a second shallow bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Place bread crumbs in a third bowl.
Using a small cookie scoop, scoop small balls of mac and cheese. Toss each ball in seasoned flour, dunk in the egg mixture to coat, then dredge in bread crumbs. Refrigerate until ready to fry.
In a large heavy pot, heat about 1" vegetable oil over medium heat. Meanwhile, place a wire rack inside of a large baking sheet. When the oil is very hot and shimmering (and about 180 degrees celcius), add four to five mac and cheese balls. Cook until very golden all over, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer the fried bombs to a wire rack and sprinkle them with salt. Repeat with remaining mac and cheese bombs.
Transfer bombs to a serving dish and garnish with parsley. Serve warm.
Smart Tots Childcare and the families at our centre have embarked on our own recipe book project that we are super excited about.
Look out for our recipe book, being published by the end of November 2021.

Caring for the environment means doing things that will keep the Earth healthy.
We feel that it is important to teach the children about recycling plastic bottles instead of throwing them in the bin, and turning off lights when you don’t need them on anymore.
It’s up to us to do what we can to care for the environment.
We explain to the children that there are plenty of ways to be green and make choices that help our planet, and you don’t have to be a grown-up to make eco-friendly choices!
Our gardening program give the children an understanding how to plant greens and the benefits of planting herbs, flowers and trees.
We also stress on the importance of conserving the Earth’s natural resources, like water, and plants so people living decades after us can still enjoy living on our amazing planet.
Join us in our quest to grow a generation of mindful humans who care for our precious planet…
