Roast Chicken & Cauli Cheese
Check out the NZ seasonal fruit. The feijoa and the persimmon. LOVE persimmons!!
Chicken Curry & Dahl
No one complains about an Indian.
So lovely to have everyone (even the fussy middle-aged one) loving lentils :)
Mexican Beans & Mince
Weekly favourite. Devasting, no avocado to make guacamole. Just can't bring myself to trade the car in for some of the green fruit :(
Recycled Roast Dinner
I often cook a roast dinner. Not just because they are delicious - because they are. Not just because they are relatively quick and easy to prep - because they are. But primarily because they give me days worth of left-overs to recycle.
I also make a home-made gravy that goes with this.
Sausage, jacket potato & kumara mash
Am I recycling the kumara mash from the other day? Absolutely! My mantra is cook once, serve thrice if possible.
However, is this a different lunch to the last one? Pretty much.
I love upcycling, rebranding and remarketing food. If I added some cheese it would be a totally different dish again ;)
Pork, potatoes & kumara/chick pea mash
I use a lot of beans, lentils and chickpeas. Economic, easy to prepare, full of nutrients and a great way to bulk out meals for hungry boys!!
The mash you can see is chickpeas, orange sweet potato, spring onion and herbs and spices. Divine!
Roast Beef & Yorkshire Puddings
I am officially "mother of the year". Well, for this lunchbox anyway ;)
Mince & Mash
We have a mince dish once a week. Simple, quick and the boys love it.
If it works there is no reason to re-invent the wheel!
