This week is the start of the school holidays so I can no longer rely upon my children (and husband) being fed at school and get to cook properly for them! As I love cooking and have THREE new recipe books to utilise I am very happy about this. I am trying to get my eldest daughter interested in cooking and helping me in the kitchen. Not just cakes and biscuits, but main meals and snacks. It’s an ongoing project and I am twitchy about letting her loose with a knife, but I suppose if you don’t do it, you never get better. That reminds me, I must get some more plasters…..
Today we shall be eating whatever I bought at the Glynde Food Festival yesterday. This could last all week.. ;)
Gino’s gnochetti with courgette
Toad-in-the-hole with onion gravy served with fine green beans and baby carrots
Picnic as we are off to meet friends at Alice Holt Forest. It will include my home-made sausage rolls, dinosaur shaped sandwiches and I might even make some scotch eggs..
Home-made pizza with garlic doughballs (a Friday night ritual!)
Home-made curry – haven’t decided which kind yet but I am going to use up the rest of the sri-lankan curry powder I made last week!
Roast – probably chicken as I can, at least, guarantee the kids will eat it!
