Veggie-Packed Bobotie – better than infinity chocolates!

Veggie-Packed Bobotie – better than infinity chocolates!

Our five year old reckons this bobotie is “better than infinity chocolates”! Long may that last! Bobotie (pronounced ba-boer-ty) is a well-known South African dish made up of spiced mince baked with an egg-custard topping. We eat this loads! Tonight the man of the house cooked a double of this recipe which made enough for […]

Wraps from Scraps; What the Fat; Easy Diet Diary app

You all thought I’d fallen off the bus, didn’t you!  Nope 🙂  I’ve been on holiday for the week, which also meant eating in the way I “used to” for the week too.  Parts of that were nice, like the peach sponge pudding! But on the whole I ate more white bread and pastry (pies […]

Pasta Bake with Vegetables – Day 9

Pasta Bake with Vegetables – Day 9

We usually buy pasta bake in a jar before giving this recipe a go.  It was super delicious!  Needless to say I don’t think we will be buying the processed jars again, yay!  This Pasta Bake with Vegetables gives Heinz a good run for their money.    Tonight was a vegetarian night, but the bacon […]

Pumpkin Risotto – Day 5

Pumpkin Risotto is one of our tried and true recipes that we have been making for a couple of years.  It’s a true one-dish dinner that is comforting, easy, and vegetarian.  Everything gets tossed into a ovenproof dish and baked in the oven.  Parmesan cheese is stirred through it and you’re done.  I usually make this with […]

Bluenose Fish & Blueberry Ice Cream – Day 4

Tonight we had pan fried Bluenose fish and 5 veg – sauteed silver beet, steamed carrot, cauliflower, and broccoli, and roasted parsnip (made on Sunday).  No carbs tonight!  Would you believe that Miss 3 ate the silver beet before anything else?  We couldn’t believe it.  Miss 5 finished all of hers off too.  The Man […]

The Naked Shepherd – Day 3

Day 3 is upon us, so still early days but we are gathering momentum. So the meal plan was for rissoles tonight, but the Man of the House had other more tasty ideas, and I’m glad he did.  Tonight we had The Naked Shepherd, a recipe from Damon Gameau’s “That Sugar Book”.  Forgive my photography… […]
