Home grown really does taste better. Yesterday I had french toast with our hens eggs and topped it with our home grown tomatoes…. Super YUMMMM!!
We made fruit crumble this week. Jamie’s recipe is called ‘Best Ever Fruit Crumble’. That comes with really big expectations. It certainly was the best ever fruit….. pears, apples, ginger and lime….. SO GOOD! But best ever crumble……sorry I can’t agree. Crumble just isn’t crumble without oats, brown sugar and coconut…. then it would be the ‘Best Ever Fruit Crumble’. So apart from my difference of opinion with Jamie (heheheh), this week was fabulous fun. Our cooking group and Instructors are just wonderful, so many lovely people. Next week is our last week. It will be sad to finish. Andrew and I have really enjoyed cooking together in class. I don’t think Andrew has made a meal at home yet though…… unless porridge counts xoxo
Next Week – Roast Chook!
Linking up with Heather – Life Made Lovely Monday xo
This week the lovely Danella stepped us through three dishes – cucumber yoghurt, salmon tikka and evolution potato salad. All incredibly simple quick dishes. My fav was the evolution potato salad. We are big fans of the evolutions salads…. the tomato and green salads….very tasty!
Next week – Baking….crumble…yummo!!
What an amazing week. Who knew you could have so much fun in the kitchen!!
This week we made tomato sauce, pesto and dough for pizza. Every week we seem to have more fun, more laughs and feel more like we are amongst friends.
This week when Andrew and I were getting ready to go to cooking classes Ben asked me if they would have an apron to fit him like the aprons Mummy and Daddy wear. Ben comes with us to class and my parents pick him up – Yay for Grandparents xo. So he sees a little of how things run. I told him that they only have big peoples aprons but reminded him that he has an apron of his own. He proudly puts his apron on to go to cooking classes today….. a little bit cute! He also got a special tour of the kitchen from Louise today. Oh he loved it!! He kept his apron on all afternoon with Grandma and Grandad and was still wearing it when we got home!
It was pizza in our house for dinner tonight – with home made dough, pesto and tomato sauce. Ben of course with his cooking class experience (a whole 5 minutes) was an expert pizza maker. It is so lovely to see him helping cook and eating great food. It makes for a very happy Mummy (& Daddy)!!
Next Week – Salmon Tikka
What can I say……. another dinner hit with the family. Jamie is making quite the impression in our house. Meatballs and Pasta will become a regular dinner – super delicious!
Next Week – Pizza
