Blog : Little Lilypad Co

The Little Lilypad is a lifestyle blog mostly written by a mum to two beautiful, cheeky and entertaining daughters. It is sometimes written by the Man on the Pad, when he is not relaxing in one of our best recliners, or by one of our baby bloggers and occasionally we accept guest posts. There is frequently talk of shoes and clothing (we love fashion and savvy shopping), chocolate (who doesn't love chocolate) education and swimming (we love this too). It is hopefully helpful, sometimes funny and always honest.

Afterschoolchefs Challenge : Let's build a waffle house

Posted on


I am going to pick up the (chicken) pieces and build a waffle house .....


Okay, okay, it might not have the same ring to it as Ed Sheerans version but he does say "if things go wrong we can knock it down" and we love a chance to knock stuff down. However the Man on the Lilypad really loves a challenge and when he heard that we were going to take part in the #AfterSchoolChefs challenge, he was ready with the fish fingers and waffles.

We are huge fans of making mealtimes fun, especially on a Monday evening when we have the madness of the school run, then swimming lessons, which means that dinner time is later than usual. Getting back into the routine has taken some getting used to, so we need something healthy but quick and easy too and Birds Eye give us both. Unfortunately for me, the Man on the Lilypad wanted to help the girls create something amazing this week, so I left them to it.

Ed Sheeran says ....

"I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind" and while I was out of sight, they built a waffle house complete with fish finger roof, chicken dipper trees, and petit pois grass.

And out of all these things I've done I will love you batter (or breaded) now.

  9. That is so funny. How did they get it all to stick together? I would have had to use tomato sauce or something. The trees are the best bit x
