Weather today = picnics and sandwiches.

Slow cook planned for tomorrow - lamb, which I rarely do because I'm not a huge fan. Going Moroccan inspired spicing.

Tried a new roasted chook recipe, for the winner winner... It was great.
Alongside the roasted potatoes, honey carrots, and steamed broccoli with peas.
Made a 'lemon delicious' with our tree's lemons, thanks to recipe shared from an Australian cookery book of Darren T from these forums. With vanilla ice cream, very yum, the Boy ate two bowls of dessert. It tasted to me of lemon meringue pies of my childhood, minus the yum crust and meringue like my mother made.

Thank you Canuck for reminding me of one of my favourite childhood desserts, growing up in Australia as I did. My mother made lemon delicious on a regular rotation. My cat loved licking out the bowl, she always had an inexplicable liking for lemons or lemon flavour.

I’d say strange cat, but cats are quirky by nature...

I baked a loaf of banana bread today. An excellent choice of comfort food for a wintry day.

Ok, I'll join the fun.....Not an elite chef, more a "just get by" cook, especially since my much better half can't cook anymore.

Last night: Creamy roast pumpkin soup, with toasted sourdough bread (from our local cafe). Winter = soup. Fresh fruit later, and there may have been chocolate.....

Cheers

Breakfast: golden roasted shop bought hash browns, spinach spinach wilted with a wee bit of olive oil and salt, eggs fried to the SUNNY side!

Lunch: leftover spinach ricotta tortellini with a simple tomato based sauce

Dinner: Thai fish cakes (too dry for me with the split mung beans) , rice, steamed greens, salad of carrot/cucumber/split green beans - sauces and dressings of the fish sauce / garlic / sugar / chilli kind. Dips of sweet chilli / Mayo.

Yesterday's breakfast was homemade bread with homemade marmalade. Today was pancakes with homemade hot caramel sauce.

Oooooo caramel sauce on pancakes

Was thinking buttermilk pancakes tomorrow as it’s my WFH day, so slower morning routine.

The caramel is like maple syrup but with fat cooked into it :D

Blueberry muffins today, which tasted great thanks to the blueberries actually tasting like blueberries, unlike my first attempt a couple of months ago.

We did cloud eggs yesterday. Fun and different. You get the yolk to dip toast but a fluffy white. Think I’ll try soufflés next.

Waiting for school holidays for a few other recipes.
