Off again

Today I attended my last session in this parenting course. So I will be getting a month's break before I goes on to the Module two.

Being a home maker, attending classes allow me to improve on my social network. The course is not only beneficial to me but the group is fun and enjoyable. In fact, I learnt so much from it.

I wish more option is provided for us homemaker. That is to attend classes to upgrade ourselves while our kids are in school. The timing between 7am - 12 noon is the best, at least for my schedule! What about you?

For me, I am not very comfortable to leave my kids at home while I go out. I always need to co-ordinate with my hubby if I want to have some ME time with my friends in the night. Guess I am just being paranoid.

Anyway, I am looking forward to Module Two.

In the meantime, I need to practise what I learnt, wish me luck.

I tried another new recipe before hubby is off again. This Rissoles is really delicious. The texture is crispy due to the bread crumbs and yet soft and nice with the fillings. In fact, the egg roll gives a nice fragrant. mmm... seriously I really don't know how to describe it but we like it. It is also easy to prepare.

Are you keen to try?

  2. hi edith, the wrap looks like chicken gordon bleu..btw, i tried to click on rissoles but there's no link..

  3. Hi! Can you share the recipe? Thanks.

  4. They sure look yummy! This reminds me that I haven't made them for a long time! Time to dig up old recipes!
    It's good that you can find time to do your own thing and get out of the house! Homemakers are usually very housebound with little interaction outside. That's why I babysit my grandkids 3 times a week for my SAHM daughter.

  5. This looks good! Is it really easy to prepare? Looks complicated, especially the rolling part.

  6. Any left for me to try on? hehehe ... I like Rissoles, with the breadcrumb skin, crispy outside and juicy inside. Hm .. yummy!
