At Home With Mrs M for Meal Planning Monday
and Darling Downs Diaries for Good Morning Mondays.
I have been SO busy and preoccupied with the garden at the moment that everything else is going by the wayside a bit! I am so excited with the progress though - I will share it in my next post.
This week, I am using some recipes from Grow, Harvest, Cook by Meredith Kirton.
This is a great Australian book. As the title suggests, there are growing tips, when to harvest and what to cook with your produce. It is arranged alphabetically by produce. It is by no means an in depth book, but it is great to dip into for some quick information and some great recipes.
I make my banana bread from this book. I change it around to add whatever nuts and spices I feel like (or need to use up). Absolutely delicious for breakfast - toasted under the griller, then topped with yoghurt and honey.
Herbed chicken pieces, potato wedges, stir fry veggies
Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream (I make this without an ice cream machine. Just pour into a Tupperware and remember to give it a good beating every hour or so. This will stop ice crystals forming throughout the ice cream).
Beef Stew (from The Pioneer Woman)
Pumpkin soup with garlic bread
Golden syrup dumplings
Dill and parmesan crusted fish fingers, green salad
Vanilla panna cotta with berries
Lasagne, chopped green salad
Lamb roast, roast veggies, steamed greens
Lemon curd and blueberry muffins
