Winter Menu

Variety of Eggs in a Bowl Photographic Print

Some of these recipes I think can be adapted.  Like I may use normal pasta instead of wholemeal, and I have used a few recipes to come up with my own Gozleme using another lady's idea, she tried it and it worked, so we will try our own version following her idea.  I am not having actual roast chicken, just a BBQ chicken from the shop with gravy over it.  The ideas came from sale items at the green grocers and the left over silverbeet I have.  We tend to keep adding to our knowledge of variations of things or combinations of foods that we have enjoyed before.  Hence the haloumi.  If we can't buy rocket pesto we will use another one we make ourselves, that is in a sausage bake I have posted before.  I have rocket left over from one of the other dishes.  Swap recipes on my site, are recipes using ingredients I have already bought but are similar and usually don't use the meat that I end up not being able to buy.  However I do except my food budget to improve.  But in the meantime I have learnt to appreciate the simpler dishes in most cases.  Looking forward to eating more tuna.  Going to use half chicken on special for one recipe and another with the half jar of pesto in our fridge.
