Can I just say that these were the most decadent and devine tasting "things" ever. A special occasion prompted their creation and i think they were enjoyed by all based on the “these are goooooooood” comments that kept coming. I like that, especially when I know they came from my kitchen!
And with the leftover egg yolks quinoa patties were created with inspiration from Heidi Swanson. I haven’t purchased her new book yet but I have seen them recreated on other blogs to know that they look good. They were actually fabulous and included sweet potato, cranberries, some leftover basil pesto – whatever I could find in the fridge to use up really. They stuck together beautifully and the kids could handle them easily without to much mess. I am definitely going to recreate them for a later post as they would be extremely versatile and practical for the lunchbox.
And don’t you just love parents? Mine have recently sold our family home of 40 years. Sad I know but I have been so lucky to score a few treats such as the likes of this wallpaper and a collection of different linen and napery just to name a few. Very Happy!!!

Hey There, I’m Sherilyn the creator of Wholepromise. This is where I venture outside of being a mum, wife and Fertility Nurse Specialist.

In all Wholepromise is my style of food, it’s the food I want my boys to appreciate and it’s the food that makes me happy. Styling and photographing it is just another bonus.
