What's Cooking This Week

Rich Beef Casserole
I have decided that I have time to either cook and blog, or cook and work, but not both!  I don't know how everyone fits it all in.  So, at the moment there's not a lot of blogging for which I apologise but it's good for you to know that I've got lots of recipes stored and ready to go, for whenever that time might come that I have more than 5 minutes to myself again!

I head down to Melbourne on Sunday for my Thermomix Group Leading training which is very exciting!  It also means I need to cook a lot towards the end of the week, mainly lunchbox stuff, to see Mr MLT through the days I'm away.  He's quite handy with main meals in the Thermomix, but baking is not his forte.

So, here's what's happening in our kitchen during this busy week!

Monday:  We had my all-time favourite risotto, Garlic & Prawn Rissotto, from Full Little Tummies.

Tuesday:  We're having a re-run of the Coconut Prawn curry from last week.  Sometimes when I'm writing down as I cook and look back at it afterwards, even I can't decipher what I meant.  This was one of those instances, so I need to do a re-run of it to make sure the recipe as I've written it is correct before I unleash it's awesomeness on you all!

Cranberry Museli Slice
Wednesday:  We're having Rich Beef Casserole with Herb Scone Crust.  Delicious, hearty, herby.  I'm also baking today and am going to freeze a couple of things for the next two weeks.  I'm going to make Apricot Oatmeal biscuits (which taste like gingerbread, but are a soft little cookie), Fruity Puff Bars, Sunshine Balls and Cranberry Museli Slice.  I'll also be making Mushroom Chard bake and some mini Chicken & Vegetable Pies for easy savoury additions to the lunchboxes.

Thursday:  We're having Quirky Cooking's Creamy Chicken & Brown Rice Soup which is really just bowls full of goodness.

On Friday it is my youngest little boy's 5th birthday.  He's still deciding what it is he'd like for his birthday (such serious decisions cannot be rushed!) but the current favourite is baked beans.  Seriously - this boy is the most easy to please child in the world.

We're celebrating Mothers' Day on Saturday night as I head off to Melbourne on Sunday.  The boys and Mr MLT are in charge of dinner so I have no idea what will land on the plant - quite possibly baked beans again!

Happy Mixing,
