Win Win : Rio 2 Giveaway

STEP 1a :
Panic wipe down all surfaces visible in pic to be posted on web.
STEP 1b :
Panic semi-brush oldest child's hair for the first time this week
STEP 1c :
Have oldest child measure and pour ingredients as you lick the inside of the condensed milk tin while sternly warning your children that it is sharp and they should never ever do what Mummy is doing.



STEP 2 :
Stupidly allow 2 youngest children to stir hot caramel type product on stove, while telling them that it is indeed like caramel and totally delicious
Note : This pic was actually taken 'upside down' as I was in a blind panic to ensure nobody ate my Condensed Milk got burnt.


STEP 3 :

Non-existent.  Mstr5 was all-in following this dodgy pic, fingers first.  Suffice to say we did not have enough of the mix left to make the actual balls by the time his sisters panicked that they were missing out on something awesome, and also dug in. And me. Mostly me.


Attention #1Nana: See, I totally did let the kids consume the condensed milk you gifted them for Christmas.

Attention everyone else: Look at me go with the hands on parenting, not an electronic babysitter in sight.  MOTHER OF THE YEAR!

The recipe that I had to try because it contains only three ingredients and one of them is Condensed Milk.  And also because it has balls in the name (insert juvenile heh from my inner 14 year old) :



Another recipe I did not attempt because it included an ingredient I had to Google, then freaked out a little because it is a Health Food, but I am including to appease the health freaks out there:




And a third recipe I will be trying this weekend, celebrating the end of school holidays with the addition of vodka:




These recipes and gloaty display of parenting awesomeness were all bought to you by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Rio 2.

Specifically, the downloadable version.

The promise of which was used to have The Feral Threesome clean up post-enriching family baking while I congratulated myself with (what else but) a glass of wine.

Followed by another glass while the kids were glued to the tablet watching Rio 2.

Total win, win.

I'm a definite convert to the digital download format, as it means I can load up the electronic babysitters and take any one of them with me anywhere we go.

And also, because I don't have to leave the house to go purchase a DVD, requiring me to don something other than my school holidays tracksuit combo of choice.

As much as I'd like to be able to give you a review of Rio 2, I can't.

I've been too busy enjoying The Real Housewives of the world on the actual TV, thanks to it being free for the taking while the kids are in whichever far distant corner of the house I choose to put the tablet and Rio 2.

I can tell you that it must be a fairly good movie, on account of the lack of fighting, whining, screaming, bloodcurdling OMG HE KICKED/LICKED me screeching and associated retaliation.

And also the lack of crayon on the walls and furniture.

Therefore, Rio 2 is engaging for children aged 5 - 9 years.


Triple thumbs up from this mother, completely over the whole school holidays business.




Thanks to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, I have five Rio 2 prize packs to give away.  Each prize pack includes:

  • Rio 2 on Blu-Ray or DVD
  • Rio 2 Cuddly toy

  11. I'm pretending that I never saw your caramel balls recipe. And I'm pretending that I don't have any condensed milk or coconut in the cupboard. And I'm pretending that I don't want to try that recipe out today.
