Saturday Abbey, Stella and I are off for a week away - leaving the boys at home. (We are hoping the flu leaves us before Saturday!)
Menu planning has been done for both us girls and also for the boys.
Eating out is something none of our family particularly enjoys, we much prefer to cook our own food from scratch.
Abbey and I have chosen seven dinner meals and not one of them has potato YEA!!!!!
Big comfy Kumera which will be based on My New Roots. recipe
Mushroom Risotto we adapt the recipe as don't use jar essence of chicken whatever that is.
Home made sushi
and two easy meals of fillet steak and salmon (such treats!) with salad.
Lunches will be left overs and salads
Bircher muesli which I base mine from wild health.
and home made muesli
spicy chickpeas, I like honey chickpeas but Abbey likes spicy. ones
Her last batch we gave to Pam to take to the sevens game to snack on.
It takes a bit of planning and raiding the spice cupboard but it sure beats paying huge money for eating out.
I enjoy cooking and all the meals we have planned are quick n easy.
It's the planning stage I always find the hardest
“Fortunately, though she was hungry,
she didn't mind missing a meal.
Life was full of meals.
Of course Miss Stella has her own doggie bag.
We are very lucky that the bach we have rented is letting Stella stay - they usually don't allow pets. When I asked if they would consider letting Abbey bring Stella I did explain how well behaved she is and that she has a doggie diploma from dog obedience.
