Yoghurt and zucchini fritters

Image
I’m a little fussy when it comes to vegetables. Texture can both excite and disgust me and for some reason zucchinis fall into the latter category. Cut thick I’m not a huge fan. However grated I’m all ears. So to increase my vegetable intake I started making zucchini fritters.
These zucchini fritters are a perfect way to get vegetables into your kids or into fussy kid-like adults (yes…that’s me).
Ingredients: 1 ½ zucchinis1 tablespoon yoghurt1 egg1 clove garlic150 grams ricotta cheese1 teaspoon of dried oregano1 teaspoons dried chili (optional)Salt and paper3 tablespoons flour.
Method: Grate the zucchiniSqueeze the zucchini to remove any excess moistureTo the grated zucchini add the yoghurt, egg, ricotta cheese, oregano, chili salt and pepperSift in flour and mix well.Heat a pan with oilAdd a tablespoon of mixture and form into a circleCook until brown on each side – around 4-5 minutes on each side, depending on how hot your pan and thick the fritter is.

Serve as a side dish to a gril…

Just add yoghurt sundae stand

On Saturday (4 July 2015) Mr Bball and I had our engagement party. Over 100 people attended and we wanted to host a party that reflected us.

While having an engagement party at a bar, pub or restaurant would have made life easier (no set up, cooking or predicting alcohol consumption), we wanted something a little more unique. So we held the party in a Greek Hall, with pillars that looked like the Acropolis and all!

We set it up with pictures of those who have impacted our lives, fairy lights, flowers and tea lights. However what really made it us was a DIY taco stand and yoghurt sundae stand. Mr Bball loves tacos and I of course love yoghurt.


Funnily enough the taco stand was my idea and the yoghurt stand was Mr Bball - we obviously know each other really well! My Bball even surprised me with a 'Just add yoghurt' sign, a tribute to this blog.


This is a unique post but I wanted to share our yoghurt sundae stand experience.
