My miss 2 has started “yucky” and “no like that one”. Driving me mental!

Just made a chickpea and sweet potato, and an eggplant and cauliflower curry for dinner tonight. Will cook up some rice later, and maybe try to make some flatbreads to go with it.

I took it away, gave her a mandarin and moved on to bath time.

I'm making udon noodle soup.
I wanted to make a hot pot but can't find a hot pot I like and my fondue pot is a bit small for 3 people I think.

I’m defrosting lamb cutlets, think I’ll serve with simple sides of mashed potatoes, peas and corn.

I went to woolies on the weekend and saw some chicken kievs in the fresh section and was unsure as supermarket kievs and I have a complicated history with each other, we tried them last night but they were actually really nice, sure processed chicken but I actually liked them and the filling was nice too

we put them with normal vegetables

ooh maybe I can do kiev's tomorrow!
I was going to do them when DD was at camp (buying 3 is pricey!) but ended up with this weird garlic chicken fillo that had cheese and rice and no garlic hardly in the stuffing, wrapped in fillo.

Need to make sure I have regular plain flour or a blend of alternatives, rather than gluten free plain only which was all I had. The flatbreads just didn’t work - they broke apart and didn’t puff up at all. Thankfully they taste much better than they look.

They look a bit like a very thin slice of cauliflower head.

It’s just a little bit cold, soooo it’s going to be pea and ham soup. Have bought a baguette to go with it. They will be excited. It’s the first day that really feels wintry here and it’s only 16c.

Pizza and garlic bread after swimming tonight.

Thinking of trying tofu coated in French onion soup mix and either baked or shallow fried tomorrow.

Jollyf, you get a lot better at them with practice. Did you lay them on a tea towel?

I used some wet paper towel instead of a tea towel, did the job.

The quantities abs rolling was definitely better the more I did :lol:

Sausages tonight, with bread rolls and salad and people could do whatever they wanted with it. I made mine into a sausage-hamburger. Kids loved it, DH did not.

DH says he doesn’t want left over sausages for dinner tomorrow. But I think that’s what he is getting.

Yes definitely better with less.

We just had ABC sauce, might get fancy with the sauce next time.

Hoisin sauce is nice.
So is sweet chilli. Can add a squeeze of lime and garlic for a bit extra.
I make a nut dip with treenut spread, garlic, ginger, soy and lime that is quite good. Could use peanut butter.
