We ❤️ KB Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2020

Find your mum the perfect present by shopping locally!

Mothers Day Kalgoorlie Boulder

Mother’s Day is fast approaching, (10th of May, you should probably write that down somewhere..) and many of us are probably dreading the thought of trying to find a present for our mothers. I’ll be honest, it is pretty difficult to wrap all your love and admiration into a present, and make that present something new every year. Us kids want to make the day special, but I bet a lot of mums are reading this next to a desk of unlit candles from years past, or still have a ‘Free Hug’ coupon book collecting dust at the back of their drawers…As you can tell, I was a pretty rubbish gift-giver as a kid.

This year, let’s make it special. With the measures of social distancing in place, it may be hard for some of us to show our appreciation as we would usually. But we’ve made it our effort to dedicate this blog post to shopping local, supporting local businesses all while finding a unique and special gift for our loved ones.   

I have taken some of my top picks from the incredible range on offer, and provided a quick guide to get to know some of our local retailers and what they have in-store. With their help, we can get through this Mother’s Day with ease, and focus on celebrating rather than stressing about a gift.

ANZAC Biscuit Recipe

ANZAC Biscuits Kalgoorlie We Love KB

I may be biased, being a true-blue Aussie and all, but Anzac Biscuits are hands down my favourite biscuit. Especially chewy ones. And not store bought ones (unless they’ve been baked from Coles bakery) they’re usually hard and probably been sitting on the shelf for weeks. You simply can’t go passed a homemade Anzac Biscuit, there is something nostalgic about taking a bite and the delicious smell pluming through the house. They are moreish and before you knew it, you’ve eaten a dozen (be honest now). Besides being ridiculously easy to make, they are extremely versatile. You can serve them with ice cream and use them for the base of a cheesecake.

The history behind ANZAC biscuits is easily understandable. They came around the first world war and they were usually sent to the soldiers by their wives and mothers. Because they do not contain milk or eggs, the ingredients within ANZAC allows them not to spoil and were able to travel long distances and keep in a tin for a good while. Hence the name ANZAC biscuits, for its popularity feeding the men during war time. And I love the significance associated with my beloved bekkie.

Here’s a recipe for you to make at home. Please take a photo of your efforts, post on social media and tag us or use #welovekb so we can see your delicious achievements!

ANZAC Biscuits

INGREDIENTS

  • 150g (1 cup) plain flour
  • 90g (1 cup) rolled oats(see Notes)
  • 85g (1 cup) desiccated coconut
  • 100g (1/2 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar
  • 55g (1/4 cup) caster sugar
  • 125g butter
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

METHOD

  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 160°C. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
  • Step 2
    Combine flour, oats, coconut and combined sugar in a large bowl.
  • Step 3
    Stir the butter, golden syrup and water in a small saucepan over medium heat until the butter melts and the mixture is smooth. Stir in the bicarbonate of soda. Add to the oat mixture and stir until well combined.
  • Step 4
    Roll level tablespoonfuls of the oat mixture into balls and place, about 5cm apart, on the prepared trays. Flatten until about 1cm thick. Bake, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 15 minutes or until light golden. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool slightly before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

ANZAC Day Celebrations in KB 2020

ANZAC Day Celebrations Kalgoorlie We Love KB

Photo Credit: Kalgoorlie RSL 

ANZAC Day marks the anniversary of the first major actions fought by Australian and New Zealand soldiers during the First World War, but it is a day so much more than that. It is a day of national memory and is close to many of our hearts. And it is so important to teach and pass the memory onto our younger generation.

My late grandfather, Ken, served as a corporal and temporary sergeant for the NZ Special Air Service from 1948 to 1966. He never mentioned his war stories to me as a child, even after my persistent nagging. It was only until recent years that I delved deeper into his war records and realised how heroic he had been through that period of his life. The horror he would’ve endured in making sure kids like me wouldn’t have to suffer the same fate resonated with me in a way I couldn’t believe. I had always taken great pride in going to the Dawn Service with him every year and see how proud he was. After his passing, I was reminded of the deep importance that our traditions hold, and how the spirit of Anzac Day is strong in many of our hearts.

This year, due to the circumstances of COVID-19, we may all feel a bit restricted in what we can do to recognise the day without our usual events taking place. The cancellation of the Anzac Day commemoration events were nationwide, which is the first time services have been suspended since World War II. However, with the power of mateship and social media there are some adapted traditions we can still take part in so we can all come together as a nation, even while being physically apart for now. 

Driveway Dawn Service

People around Australia are encouraged to stand with their family, friends and neighbours in quiet contemplation at 5:55AM outside of our houses, at the end of the drive-way, on April 25th. There will be a radio and television broadcast of the National Dawn Service commemorative broadcast at 5:25-6:15AM on ABC Radio, which will also depict the RAAF jet fly-over in some parts of the country.   

Gunfire Breakfast

The ‘gunfire breakfast’ seems to have evolved from coffee and rum, and a hearty breakfast of bacon, eggs and sausages will be on the menu for breakfast in many households across Australia, as this dish is usually served by the War Memorial for their annual Anzac Day breakfast. Feel a part of ANZAC traditions and cook yourself a bountiful feed!

Anzac Biscuits

These biscuits have long been associated with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps as it is claimed that soldier’s wives and women’s groups would bake and send the biscuits as they kept well during naval transportation and didn’t spoil in the process. We love chewy Anzac biscuits, what do you like?

To create your own batch, find the recipe here: LINK HERE

Two-Up 

The game of Two-Up was played originally by Australian soldiers in the trenches and on troop ships. It became popularised in the 18th century among English and Irish settlers, and by the 1850’s, Two-Up was being played in the Goldfields and Broken Hill. We use the game today as a symbol of celebration for those who returned home from battle, and as remembrance for the fallen. For more information on the rules and origin of Two-Up, visit: https://deewhyrsl.com.au/rules-of-two-up/

Recording of ‘the Ode’ 

The RSL are encouraging families to make a short video reciting ‘the Ode’ to post online before Anzac Day to demonstrate appreciation and encourage fundraising for the commemoration to take place.

 

The Ode:

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; 

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. 

At the going down of the sun and in the morning 

We will remember them.”

 

Visual Commemoration for Anzac Day

The concept of a ‘visual commemoration’ suits these circumstances, as it can not only honour those who fought for us, but also lift the spirits of those of us struggling with being at home. 

 

Tie some purple ribbon or streamers to your mailbox, fence line, trees, car, ect to remember the animals who perished during wartime. 

 

Write a special message in remembrance of those who have left us – for those family members or friends who served or are still serving. You could even write a letter to care homes showing your support of our veterans and send some love to those who may not have much contact with people at the moment – you never know, you might make someone’s day!

 

It’s important to involve children so they can learn and grasp an understanding of the sacrifices that were made for our country. Kids can make poppy flowers, posters, colouring-in drawings, wreaths, and the Flame of Remembrance to put on display.

There are amazing possibilities if we put our minds together to create a special and honourable day. Below is an example of some functional ANZAC Day art, made by Trisha Preston.

Tealight Candle Holders

To make these, half some 2L milk cartons and fill with some sand to weigh them down. Marker pens can be used to draw or outline stencils of the poppy flowers, then fill in with colour. These lanterns look beautiful lit up against the sunrise.

We ❤️ KB Takeaway & Delivery Food Guide

Did you know that on average, Aussies eat out or buy takeaway at least four times a week? We didn’t either!

Everyone loves to indulge in good food while lounging around in their PJ’s. Recently, restaurants and cafes have had to adapt to the new Government regulations, which has in turn benefited us locals with more options for takeaway and delivery services around KB. One thing is for sure, we can’t settle our cravings for just a late-night kebab and we know you can’t either! 

So to celebrate the new diversity of KB eatery businesses, we have produced our top picks to make it easier for you to order! Just consider this your helpful little food guide in navigating your way around Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s eatery scene. 

 

Paddy’s

Paddy’s are now offering online ordering and delivery service, and the very first thing we wanted to try was their pork belly bao buns. Not as well presented as you would get by dining in, (as expected) but tasted just as delicious and saved the effort of us trying to make them at home! We also ordered the steak sandwich with extra beetroot which landed a positive review from the other half, as well as the chilli and garlic prawn linguine – YUM! My only critique would be the 60 minute wait, however it was worth it for the quality of the meal we received! Perhaps order ahead of time for a more optimal experience. They also have a kids menu which is a bonus. Paddy’s is definitely the place for treating yourself to great quality food!

Fish & Chips

The Kalgoorlie Hotel (Judd’s)

Being one of the oldest buildings in Kalgoorlie, this restaurant sure knows how to keep the spirit of cooking alive. We tried their fettuccine carbonara and chicken schnitzel with creamy garlic sauce. Our first positive was that it was packed nicely and easy to take away to the car. Very tasty, and we appreciate that sauces were in separate containers to avoid making our dinner soggy. They have a delicious selection of woodfired pizzas and pub meal favourites, as well as tasty new creations such as their spicy chicken wings with blue cheese dipping sauce. Kids meals, vegetarian and gluten-free options are also available, catering to the whole family!

Mamma Mia’s Trattoria

Mamma Mia’s, located at the Star & Garter Hotel, always has friendly staff to make you feel at home…or like you’re in Italy. But now serving dinner daily from 5PM-late, the restaurant offers a wide selection on their takeaway menu. If you’re a fan of seafood in this chillier weather, try their ‘zuppetta di cozze’ – a fresh garlic mussel soup with a touch of chilli. Or if you’re a dedicated fan of Italian eatery, check out their amazing range of pizzas, pastas and parmas. And if you spend over $30 with your pick up order, receive a free 1.25L soft drink. What a bonus!

Ruby’s Rasoi Indian 

Ruby’s will transcend into the world of India through it’s delicious cuisine. Offering delivery and takeaway options from 5-10PM from Tuesday-Sunday, Ruby’s Rasoi is a must-try destination for those of us who love our pungent spices and flavours in our cooking. We just had to try their butter chicken, chicken korma and Lamb Rogan josh with garlic naan bread (YUM). It was delicious with a hint of hot spice, a great takeaway option for the incoming cooler months. We paid over the phone and the delivery was fast – approximately 30-40 min wait. Ruby’s also offers a great range of vegetarian options, as well as gluten, nut and dairy free options! Explore your senses with a spiced goat curry, or even a beautiful creamy butter chicken if you prefer a milder dish. Ruby’s Rasoi can give you the best of both worlds, while staying true to authentic Indian cooking.

Beaten Eats

Beaten track brewery has diversified their business to offer online ordering and a takeaway menu. Order yourself a fully loaded burger with one of their signature brews, eat it out the back on your patio and it will feel like your at the pub anyways! This new transition has responded well with the KB community with them selling out in their first couple of weeks of service! Their menu consists of mouth watering burgers with a side of chips, homemade pizzas, popcorn chicken and the popular burnt ends from slow cooked beef brisket and pork belly. My favourite brew is pink lemonade but they have a great range of ales and ciders that are brewed on site. Be mindful that they are only offering this service from Thursday to Sunday; a lunch service from 11am-1pm and Dinner service from 4pm-7pm. If you haven’t had a chance to experience Beaten Track yet, this is a great opportunity to do so!

Easter in the Desert – COVID19 Edition

As the season approaches, often so does the stress and financial strain of the celebration. But this year, many of us will be spending our Easter weekend at home and indoors – No Esperance trip for us this year! This means our children may be feeling the pressure of cabin fever setting in about the thought of celebrating inside. Not to worry though, our Premier has given the Easter Bunny a special Eggs-emption to enter our state so Egg Hunts are still high on the Easter Festivities agenda and we have developed a list of food, festivities and DIY decorations to help keep the little ones entertained and let us big kids relax!

Food

Baby Chick Cake Pops

These adorable little chickies are made from Rice Bubble balls coated in white chocolate and shredded coconut. These cake pops can be enjoyed by all ages and are a hit with the kids in the kitchen! Find the full recipe here

Chocolate Egg Nests

This recipe is made with a secret ingredient: Chow mein noodles! These nests are deliciously crunchy, and can be decorated with candied eggs or lollies to add a special touch. Find the full recipe here

Marshmallow Bunnies

This cute little design can be created in three easy steps, and can be the perfect topper on cupcakes, or even on their own as a tasty treat. You can make a little bunny family for your own, and even decorate them to look like your kids! Find the full recipe here

 

Festivities

Easter Egg Hunt

As the name suggests, an easter egg hunt is a great activity to get the kids hunting around the backyard. You can use chocolate eggs, or hide plastic eggs with small treats and toys inside. To up the stakes, add a Golden Ticket egg to the mix and let your children pick a special prize! This is also a nice way to get some fresh air and get back in-tune with nature.

Egg and Spoon Race

The game of coordination and balance, the egg and spoon race is a classic Easter game. Race to the finish line with one hand behind your back. If the egg falls off the spoon, start again. It is preferred to use hard-boiled eggs, but take the game outside with some raw ones and listen to the laughter when they hit the concrete!

Pin the Tail on the Bunny

This game is a hoot for the kids. Simply print out an image of the back of a rabbit, or use the picture displayed, and hang it up on the wall. Grab a few cotton balls and add some double-sided tape to the backs, readying them for being stuck to the poster. The child having their turn at pinny the tail should be blind-folded, hand them a cotton ball and let them try their luck! Whoever gets the tail closest to the right spot, wins a prize.

Decorations

Egg Garland

This craft takes a quick trip to Bunnings, but it’s worth it in the long run to create these beautiful egg garlands. First, find some paint sample cards in various colours. Cutting these cards into ovals make stripey eggs! String the shapes to some yarn or string and hang them up around the home to create a vibrant Easter decor.

Toilet Roll Bunnies

Don’t know what to do with  your excess toilet rolls? How about these toilet roll bunnies! They’re not only cute, they’re easy to craft too! Gather some empty toilet rolls and paint them in your desired colours. Use another roll to cut two ear shapes and stick them to the inside to make a bunny shape. You can use a pen to draw the face, or decorate them however you like with materials like pom poms, patterned paper or googly eyes!

Easter Egg Tree

Who says trees are only for Christmas time? To create this elegant piece, start by grabbing some sturdy branches from the yard and placing them in a heavy vase. You can blow the yolk out of the eggs and dye them with food colouring, or simply use some faux plastic eggs. Cut 50cm pieces of ribbon and hot glue the egg to the midpoint of the ribbon. Wrap the ribbon around the egg and secure the top of it with some glue. Once the glue dries, you can hang your eggs to the tree! 

If you don’t own a hot glue gun, try getting handy with some sticky tape. It’s easy to get creative with this project by taping on flower cuttings, feathers, ornamental pieces, the list goes on!
