Last week I managed to make a couple of quiche like slices for my children to try as lunch options. I made No Green Stuff Veggie Slice which I took to my friends house for lunch with a small group of ladies. There were a couple of slices left but my children didn’t try it. I also made Bacon and Sweet Potato Slice which my son & I had as part of our lunch for most of the week. I made it gluten free but my husband didn’t try it.
Last week was a fairly big week, baking wise.
I made No-Bake Walnut Cookies (which are stored in the freezer), raw brownie bites (don’t tell my husband what’s in them!), apple cinnamon muffins, Banana Blueberry Buckwheat Muffins (the recipe uses raspberries but I used blueberries instead), my version of My Kind of Bliss Bliss Balls, chocolate slice and passionfruit slice. The passionfruit slice was an old recipe that I haven’t used in a long time as it isn’t gluten free. I used tapioca flour & coconut flour to make it gluten free.
For breakfast I made an apple, almond & cinnamon chia pudding which lasted for a few days, served with some nut granola I had made the week before.
For my sons lunches I made nacho scrolls with leftover Tric’s mince and scroll dough. He also took a version of caesar salad a couple of days with the leftover chicken schnitzel.
For dinners we had:
Monday – Tric’s Minice – a nacho style mince
Tuedsay – GF pancakes for shrove Tuesday using an adapted version of my GF pancake
recipe. These worked well and they were all gone. I’ll have to make them again soon.
Wednesday – Chicken Schnitzel
Thursday – Dinner at Mum & Dad’s – marinated chicken & vegies
Friday – French Onion Steak
Saturday – Mexican Meatballs
Sunday – Lasagna – all homemade including GF lasagna sheets, homemade tomato puree & homemade almond milk to make the cheese sauce. It was the first time I have made my own pasta and will definitely do this again. We rarely have lasagna as I can’t buy any lasgana sheets that both my husband and son can eat.
What have you been cooking or baking this week?
As we were away at the Sunshine Coast for part of last week I didn’t do much baking but we ate some of what I had baked the week before.
I continued with Caralee’s Breakfast Challenge. So in the last week I’ve had Green Breaky Bowl (pictured); Choc Crunch Granola (with dried fruit, banana & coconut milk or with
some puffed corn); Choc Banana Pancakes; Superfood Berry Smoothie; Puffed Corn (with just some rice/almond milk) & of course on Sunday we had bacon & eggs. Most days I also had Lemon & Ginger Tea
My son made the choc banana pancakes. Continue reading
I’m going to start a new regular post on this blog to discuss what I have cooked or baked in the previous week. (We’ll see how I go). I usually plan my dinners for the week and add them to my calendar. We don’t always stick totally to it but it is a great start. Each week I’ll try and compare what I had planned to what actually happens.
This past week I have done quite a bit of baking, some to eat straight away but the rest to freeze for future use. So lets start with the baking.
Today is Anzac day in Australia & New Zealand. ANZAC stands for Australian & New Zealand Army Corps. 25 April is the anniversary of the landing of Australian & New Zealand soldiers at Gallopili in 1915. However on this day we remember all soldiers from our respective countries that have served in all wars.
I wanted to try and make some GF Anzac biscuits that my husband could eat. Continue reading
I’ve been struggling with what to bake for my husband as we have discovered that there is hidden sulphites in things like “pure” corn flour and tapioca flour. I suddenly remembered that there was no flour in peanut butter cookies so made them. Continue reading
