A dreamy giveaway

One of the best things about school holidays is sleeping in!
The mornings are getting a little cooler now, and it's been lovely to snuggle under the covers a bit longer and put off getting out of bed for as long as possible.
No rushed breakfasts, no lunches to make and no dashing out the door to school - bliss.
We've enjoyed a few visits with friends and family too and it's been great not to have to enforce bedtime now the kids are getting older.
Another dreamy benefit of school holidays is yummy food. Harmonie enjoyed a morning cooking with a favourite auntie, while Chase and I caught up on some shopping the other day - he's grown out of everything again! Aqua easter egg cupcakes and pink lamingtons were the result - delicious.
We've also been enjoying some of Cloud 9's scrumptious frozen yoghurts. Lighter in taste and fat than ice-cream, they are deliciously yummy without the guilt factor.
We used the Strawberry Dreams flavour (strawberry chunks and biscuit swirled through strawberry yoghurt) to make yummy iced-yoghurt sandwiches. (Sorry, no photo, they were eaten too quickly).
Then Chase whipped up some lemon merinque smash with the Limoncello frozen yoghurt (limoncello and lemon curd swirled through frozen yoghurt). It was nice and easy, and delicious too. And we decided at the last minute that it was too pretty to smash up, so we served it like this:


Lemon merinque pie with limoncello frozen yoghurt, pre-smashing, with lemon zest on top



Sharing the school holiday joy, the nice people at Cloud 9 have given MIA 5 x $20 Coles vouchers to giveaway, so that readers can try the fabulous frozen yoghurts themselves.

Mmm .... Lemoncello would have to be my choice ... I still smile about the scene in Under The Tuscan Sun when I hear that word! But lemon is a soft spot for me!

Strawberry Dreams ...it is divine - I bought some before Christmas and had a tiny spoonful as I put it away in freezer.

We came home from a few days away to find the fridge and freezer off (storm tripped safety switch) and I lost everything including my Cloud9 frozen yoghurt.

The Limoncello frozen yoghurt, as I love tangy flavours.
