Food from the Week..

Pretty average edition as I forgot to take photos of most things I made - including the cheesecake I whipped up for my little brother's birthday, which is the one on the cover of Masterchef Australia Magazine at the moment.  If you like a cheesecake that isn't too sweet but is a whole heap of creamy, and you're sick of lemony-tanged cheesecakes, try it!  I was a fan & it was a hit with the fam.

I found this in a supermarket I visited last week and I've been sprinkling it on my morning oats with my LSA.  It's just like a coconut meal - nothing added.  Yummo.

The bomb site of a kitchen after the cheesecake.

Fridge after a re-stock.  I love my apples & pears, but sadly have not had a chance to get to any of my local organic places lately.... be gone, virus.

This was the cauliflower soup recipe I found on the back of my Coles brand frozen cauliflower.  It was 500gr frozen cauli, 1 onion, 1 clove of garlic, 2 cups of vegetable stock, salt, pepper, 2 tbls of cream and 1/4 of a cup of parmesan cheese.  I used rice milk instead of cream and topped it with some thyme but otherwise followed the recipe - it was tasty!  I was pleasantly surpised.  Blended into a super smooth soup, this may be a way to get kids to eat cauliflower without the cheese sauce.

A simple mid-week dinner of boiled veg, ricotta, smoked salmon, a few capers & some pepper.

Can you say, "BEST SNACK EVER"?

Sometimes a boy just needs his bacon & eggs.

Personally, right now, I am craving a big fat crumpet with a high butter to honey ratio, but an afternoon snack of pear & nuts, and a dinner of leftover cauliflower soup & something protein-y (not sure what yet) is on the cards.

Eat any yummy food I should track down this week?

Stay well,
