I hope you don’t mind me coming out of Instagram retirement (at least momentarily) to give you a HUGE air hug and a recipe. Because, honestly. It’s the only way I know I can help right now, so healthy oven/air fryer banana fritters it is [swipe right for the recipe] ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s been a while between posts. And, contrary to the rumours, I have not been locked up in the Big Brother house (although how good does that sound, right about now?), so [in the event you’re curious or perhaps just looking for something to do until the MAFS reunion starts], here’s what I’ve been up to: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Learning card tricks from You Tube, I’m aiming for a Las Vegas show at the end of this. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dancing away my Saturday nights with @hotdubathome SO.MUCH.FUN [since I have lost all shame as a result of self isolation, I might even post some of my dance moves over on stories]. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Watching Tiger King, because if there is any time the world needed a polygamous, gun toting, country music singing, exotic animal trafficker, it’s now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Being extra nice to the pea hater, who woke up last Sunday morning with sudden hearing loss in one ear. Seriously, who knew? But it is in *actual* thing and it is driving him bats#%! crazy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reading ‘Such a Fun Age’: big hearted | funny | easy to read | highly recommend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Feeling all the feelings, especially for those who have been touched by the coronavirus in a way that is so much more than just having to stay home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And finally, introducing a one bottle limit for Zoom drinks, cos if that footage gets into the wrong hands, it could be used to tarnish my image. No question. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hope that you and your loved ones, are healthy and well. I would absolutely love to know what you’ve been up to. So spill... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Big love, amazing humans. Rani ❤️
The short [and dramatic] story: I read a book called Slow by @brookemcalary and now I’m going to quit Instagram. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The long [and more boring] version: I’ve had this niggling feeling for a while now that something was a little off balance. I read Slow over the Australia Day long weekend and it got me thinking about the things that really matter to me, like spending time with my family and friends, writing with no purpose, snuggling on the couch with a good book, watching a good documentary [I put MAFS in that category BTW], going to new places and trying different things. While I do all of those things now, I’m not always [okay I’m never] entirely present and I’d love to be able to do them more often. I don’t plan on quitting Instagram entirely, but I want to be more mindful about how I use it. No more scrolling while I’m on the tram, watching TV, or waiting in line at the supermarket. Plus, I plan on doing all the things you have to do in a day without picking up my phone first [procrasti-scrolling...it is real and it is dangerous]. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wish me luck guys. I’ll report back and let you know what I’ve been doing with all my new found time [in the event it’s just watching Netflix and eating popcorn, I could be back on the gram full-time within days]. And don’t worry, the YTGT website is not going anywhere. Your quick and easy recipes are safe over on the World Wide Web for all of eternity. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’re still awake at this point. Thanks for reading. 😂 Love you guys. Talk soon ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ P.S on the plate is fruit and some @panaorganic treats. I served this platter with cream and ice cream when some friends came around dinner the other night. So easy and it was a total hit.
Guys. Major breakthrough. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Air fried steak. I had such a mental barrier about cooking red meat in the air fryer. But it is actually really really good. Not quite cook it on the BBQ good, but 100% tastier than cooking it in a frying pan on the stove. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you own an air fryer [and my goodness you really should] repeat after me “I will not limit my air fryer from reaching its potential.” 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you guys have any weird mental barriers when it comes to cooking? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #airfryer #airfryerrecipes #airfryercooking #steak #salad #steakdinner #quickdinner #melbournefoodie #foodbloggerau #feedfeed #foodchannel #easycooking #youtotallygotthis
