Kia Ora Wellington!
We have had an amazing week !

This week we have been welcoming back some more of our returning whānau and we have also been settling new tamariki and their whanau into our center.

It feels like the couriers are catching up too!

so while we have had many essential items (cleaning products, food and stationary) it's always a little exciting when new resources turn up too.

Thank you CM Greta!

What is for morning tea today?

Today at Greta Jo has made the tamariki homemade crumpets - Trust me, they smell so good and are a definite favorite in our center!

Recipe below:
How to make tasty homemade crumpets
Ingredients
400 ml milk
1 tablespoon dried yeast
1 teaspoon caster sugar
2 1/3 cups strong white flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
spray oil

Method
Gently warm the milk in a bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm milk and 100 ml of tepid water

Leave in a warm place for 15 minutes, or until frothy

Sift the flour, soda and 1 teaspoon of fine sea salt into a large bowl

Make a well in the centre and pour in the yeast mixture. Whisk from the centre outwards until the consistency of double cream – this will take a few minutes, Add a splash more water, if needed.
Cover with a damp tea towel and set aside for 45 minutes or until little bubbles form on the surface.
Grease four 10 cm egg rings with spray oil.

Spray a little oil around a large frying pan or iron skillet and place over a medium-high heat. Arrange the rings in the frying pan and, once hot, spoon 4 tablespoons of the batter into each ring

Cook for 5 minutes, or until little bubbles appear on the surface.
Once the bubbles have burst, leaving little holes, use tongs to carefully lift off the rings and flip over the crumpets, then cook for 1 minute on the other side. Re-grease and reheat the rings and pan before cooking the next batch.
Have a great day Whànau!

At Greta point, we are fortunate enough to have Jo who is one of our amazing team members. She looks after all of us and is really the best cook.

During the Lock down, each week Jo has been sharing with our Greta Point whanau some of the recipes she makes at the center which are firm tamariki favourites!

Attached is a message from Jo along with 4 things we can try at home for something different to eat. (my firm favourite is homemade crumpets!).

Hi Friends and Whanau,

How are you doing, going crazy like me? I can’t wait to get back to work and seeing all your lovely children.

Now down to business, I have found some new recipes, I have tried the home-made crumpets (yum), the carrot bliss balls sounded interesting plus I have included savoury muffins.

If you try these recipes please let me know how it went!

Here’s a new recipe I found quite interesting:
1 medium banana
1/2 cup rolled oats
40g choc chips

Mash banana, add oats and choc chips, roll into balls, bake 180 for

10-15 minutes.

Have a Great week.

Stay safe, Kia kaha.
