What's Cooking This Week

On Thursday I am off to have my wisdom teeth taken out, so I'm madly trying to cram two weeks worth of work into 4 days.  So, if ever there was a week when I need a Thermomix - this is it.  Not only will it make Mr MLT's life easier when it comes to mealtimes, but I also think I'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to sorbet, icecream and smoothies as I recover.

So, after stocking up on party ice for sorbet, here's what we're eating this week:-

Monday - Baking:  bread, breadrolls and In The Mix museli slice; Dinner:  Baked Penne from Meat on the Menu (pictured).

Tuesday - Grilled salmon with Bourbon glaze, sauteed potatoes, asparagus & carrots.

Wednesday - Steak, mashed potatoes (ahhhhh, the world's best mashed potatoes from EDC), bernaise sauce and greens.  (I'm thinking I'll have a big fat juicy steak, given that I won't be chewing for a while!)

Thursday - Risotto Al Salmone which is my youngest son's favourite risotto recipe, ever!

Friday - Shepherd's Pie (from the EDC) which I've already made and have frozen, ready to go.

Saturday - Quirky Cooking's Creamy Chicken & Brown Rice soup, which is my favourite Thermomix soup recipe and hopefully by Sunday night I'll be ready to gobble some down.

Whatever you're cooking this week, I hope you have fun.  As always, if you've got any great recipes to share, I'd love to hear all about them!


  1. Sending rapid healing vibes and I'm going to make that chicken and brown rice soup sometime very soon.

  2. Thanks Kath - Am trawling through recipe books making lists of what I want to make when I can chew properly again.
