Afternoon treats for my boys. Frozen Bananas with dark chocolate, coconut and walnuts. I've been making these weekly with different nuts. The kids can't get enough of them. Thank you Lunch Lady!
Afternoon treats for me! Raw Chocolate Coconut Bites inspired from here.
Spaghetti Bolognaise made with organic beef mince and loads of Rob's
homegrown garlic and our fresh garden herbs. Organic pasta for the boys
and organic zucchini noodles for us.
Free range chicken wings with garlic and oregano and thyme and drizzled in Australian
Olive Oil. Coleslaw with a tasty garlicy sunflower seed sauce.
We had a cold spell so I made the gang Coconut Curry Chicken and Vegetable Pie. Mostly organic from the pastry flour to simple vegetables. The
sauce is made with a cup of homemade chicken stock, a small can of ayam
coconut milk and some natural arrowroot powder to thicken up and pepper for taste. Wholesome and comforting family food.
Vegan Mexican Bowl with brown organic rice. Red kidney beans sauteed with onions, paprika, cumin, garlic and fresh oregano. I have started to prioritise "clean eating" foods after my ambulance trip to the hospital. The delicious vegan tofu coriander dressing really accentuates this dish.
Chickpea, Spinach and Pumpkin Curry with organic rice for the whole family. Similar recipe to this one.
My mum came to stay after my surgery to cook and look after the children. She prepared all this food the night before a 7 hour bus and train trip from Sydney to the Snowy Mountains. Stashed in her suite case: Babaganoush, Tabouli, Serbian Cheese and Spinach Pie, a ball of Lebanese Shanglesh, A big piece of Prosciutto from Fairfield, Lebanese Bread, and four Lemons cross lime cross grapefruit from her tree. Her description not mine. Dinner was sorted the first night! Oh, and she carried a big curry plant on her journey too!
The next night, Bubba Masa (my mum) made traditional schnitzels served with Rob's delicious wild fermented saurekraut.
The day after she made traditional Serbian Cheese and Spinach Pie, also known as Burek, before anyone woke up!
What have you been cooking folks? Or like me, is someone else cooking and giving you a bit of a break.
