As usual this week's calendar is full to the brim with things to do and not enough time to get them all done! Dinner time is often the only time we all have together as a family during the day, so it's important to me that I have a clear idea of what I'm cooking each night so I don't waste that precious time.
This week we're having Salmon with Salmon mousse stuffing (from the Full Steam Ahead Varoma cookbook) and Mango rice. This usually results in some leftover salmon mousse which I roll up like sausages in cling wrap and steam in the varoma resulting in a sort of salmon mousse sausage (think boudin blanc but with salmon). It's not the most visually appealing result, but the boys love them!
A couple of friends have been raving about the Beef Rendang from the Everyday Cookbook, so we're giving that a go this week too, along with some perennial favourites - Minestrone and the Tomato & Lentil Dahl.
I'm also doing some veggie spirals and cheesecakes for a party we're going to this weekend, plus the usual assortment of bread, salads and lunchbox fillers.
