We have been whooping it up for the past week, as far as dinner goes. I've made roast chicken with homemade coleslaw - a classic! For the coleslaw use half whole egg mayo and half Greek yogurt so it is a bit more refreshing. I chopped my coleslaw and carrot in the food processor and it came out looking identical to the Colonel's, sans the half cup of sugar they must put in theirs.
I've also whipped up a good old retro-licious apricot chicken and pea and ham soup. Still to come is a super vege lasagne, and a shepherd's pie made with lamb not beef. We eat a lot of nursery-style food (as Nigella calls it) around here. That's soft, simple food that maybe a four year old would love, but I don't know why I bother. I may as well cook the food I love, hot coconuty curries and sour Vietnamese salads.
A little known fact about lemon butter, is that it is traditionally eaten with a spoon straight from the jar, ideally whilst standing at the open fridge.
The girls and I made these vegemite scrolly rolls. They are just like a cheese and vegemite sandwhich but in a different format, and they take 1/100th of the time to get into a lunchbox in the mornings.
Mim tells me she much prefers these to sandwiches because sandwiches are so....um....'Australian'. I think all my talk of marrying one of them off to Prince Christian of Denmark may be rubbing off.
That's not all, we made these little apple and cinnamon muffins for lunches too.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to perform my dance of the Crazy Working Mother.
