What we ate, week ending 22 February 2020

It's been a while since I've written a post like this, but I thought I'd share with you what we ate this week, in case you're always on the hunt for meal inspiration like I am.

Breakfast - French toast (a great way to use up old bread, and the eggs we're getting every day from our chooks)

Lunch - Pumpkin soup and buns (I pulled the pumpkin soup out of the freezer and reheated it, but made the buns fresh, letting my breadmaker do all the hard work.)

Dinner - Roast lamb, mashed potatoes (from the garden) and peas

Breakfast - Mango lassis

Lunch - Overnight bread (this is the easiest thing to make, which is why you'll see it popping up again and again this week), served with a vege/fruit platter

Dinner - Sausage crumble, spaghetti and vege crudites (Miss S cooked)

Breakfast - Mango lassis for the kids, Bircher muesli for me

Lunch - Homemade pizza at our friend Becky's house. Lemon muffins

Dinner - Slow cooked BBQ butterfly chicken, rice (cooked in homemade chicken stock), corn and peas

Breakfast - Scrambled eggs (using eggs from our chickens)

Lunch - Overnight bread with a platter of fruit and veges

Dinner - Chicken, kumara and tarragon pie, made with leftover chicken from Tuesday's dinner. (I just happened to have two sheets of flaky puff pastry in the freezer, one for the base and one for the top of the pie. I also had a couple of old kumara that needed using, and tarragon in the garden.)

Breakfast - Cereal for the kids, Green smoothie for me

Lunch - Sandwiches, lemon muffins (we were given a bag of lemons from our friend, James, who has an epic tree, so we've been making lemon muffins a lot), salami sticks, crackers and fruit

Dinner - Mince and cheese pie (just a store-bought one for an easy meal), served with a vege/fruit platter

Breakfast - Cereal for the kids, Green smoothie for me

Lunch - Pumpkin soup (finishing off the rest of the soup from Sunday) and Overnight seed bread. Lemon muffins.

Dinner - Chilli bean potato wedge nachos (featuring potatoes from our garden), topped with cheese and sour cream. Plums on the side

Breakfast - Cereal for the kids, Leftover mince and cheese pie for me

Lunch - Sandwiches (Peanut butter / Nuttvia / Salami, cheese, tomato, cucumber and mayo)

Dinner - Hamburgers on homemade buns. (To make the patties, I shaped mince into patty shapes, sprinkled them with salt and pepper, and fried them in butter. We topped the burgers with the patties as well as lettuce and tomato slices from the garden, cucumber slices, gherkins, cheese, grated carrot, mayo and basil pesto.)

What have you been eating this week? Do you go through food phases like me? I'm definitely on a lemon muffin, green smoothie and overnight bread kick at the moment.
