Weekly menu 10/09 – 16/09/2020

This week is going to be mostly shopping from my freezer and pantry. My plan last week went out the window a bit. I cooked for the family but did other stuff with what I had. I have found myself with lots of food leftover so we need to work through that. 1. Steamed vegetables… Continue reading Weekly menu 10/09 – 16/09/2020

Country potatoes

Emily loves potatoes. She would live on potatoes alone if I let her....just mashed potatoes! Country potatoes are more of a cross between mashed potato and chips in my opinion. Em plans to put her potatoes in a wrap with sausagemeat, eggs and salsa as breakfast burritos like w had back in the US. Alan… Continue reading Country potatoes

Weekly Menu 1/9/2020

I plan my meals and buy as per my menu....then I go off on a tangent and do something else completely. Last week's plan went out the window when Alan and I realised we had two nights in a row of just the two of us for dinner. Two people were away and two were… Continue reading Weekly Menu 1/9/2020

Weekly Menu 27/08/2020

Last week I promised a review of how my menu plan worked along with my plan for this week. I will go over breakfast, lunch and dinners separately. The breakfasts were completely different to my 0lan. I had spotted bagels at the store and had that with peanut butter. The plan was smoothies but when… Continue reading Weekly Menu 27/08/2020

Bread

Tortillas

I love tortillas. I love most flatbreads I guess. I might, I dare say, have a bit of a bread issue in fact. I have provided you with a naan recipe before and I have a plethora of bread recipes yet to come. I have experimenting yet to do. But today it is a quick… Continue reading Tortillas

Sauces

Cheezy Sauces

Everyone and their dog have a faux cheese sauce these days. I am no different. I have tried one other and found it thin and bland. I modified it but still didn’t have the flavour I like. I have watched a few YouTube videos with various different takes on cheeze sauce and found some inspiration.… Continue reading Cheezy Sauces

Bread

Oil-Free Naan (vg)

As breads go naan is a favourite. I love dipping it in curry or if big enough filling it with curry and salad to eat as a wrap. The action of kneading the dough and the joy of watching it rise just feels good and if you are having a bad day can give you… Continue reading Oil-Free Naan (vg)

Dinners

Sweet potato and Spinach Curry

Curry is a great dish as you can pretty much put anything you like in there and have a spicy, rich meal. I made this curry for the sake of Sunday dinner but when I posted the picture on Instagram someone asked for the recipe. So I guess the recipe must be done which means… Continue reading Sweet potato and Spinach Curry

Sauces

Pasta Sauce

Who doesn’t love spaghetti covered in tomato-y goodness? I know I do. In fact this was the meal my daughter specifically asked me to make this week so it must be good. I have been known to buy sauces but they are never quite right and I always need to buy several jars to feed… Continue reading Pasta Sauce

Hines Baked Beans

Yes, I did that play on words. I previously had this recipe on here but have updated it to a whole foods friendly option, tested it out again, and gotten the pictures I wanted to share so here we go again! I originally modified another recipe 9 years ago but as life evolves so has… Continue reading Hines Baked Beans
