Monday - Lamb chops and veges
Tuesday - Savoury vego tart plus this salad from Arfi Binstead (yum!). Bit of a "girls" tea but DH even suggested the tart as our weekly vegetarian meal so I took advantage of it! Think we will have sago for dessert. Somewhere I've seen a coconut sago pudding that I want to make.
Wednesday - G's coming to scrap with me all day so I am making Osso bucco in the crockpot and we shall have rice and some vegetables with it
Thursday - Chicken Cacciatore, taters, broccoli
Friday - Lamb shanks tagine, cous cous, yams
Saturday - Mussaman chicken curry, rice, some sort of suitable vegetable... just can't think of which one at present
Sunday - Fish cakes, salad/leaves from the garden
On Saturday I visited Eco-Organics and was impressed with the quality of their produce. I am hoping to try out their box scheme but I need to test how long a box lasts before knowing how often I'd need to get a delivery. The people there are friendly too and told me their boxes of vegetables are "guaranteed" so if there is any issue with them, they want to know.
I managed to get lost on my way there... stupidly I thought I knew where to turn off but instead of checking on the map like I normally do, I just got in the car and drove. And ended up halfway to Helensville. So... after some self-flagellation and mutterings about wasting petrol, I looked at the map and found where I was supposed to be. Got there in the end I guess. It should have taken me about 30 minutes. Still, can't get much more local than that in terms of vegetables. Unless you grow your own, which I do a bit.
Also on Saturday I went to Mum's Stampin' Up party. *deep breath* I want it all.
However, fiscal constraints meant I treated myself to 2 measly items while breaking the coveting commandment every second. I did consider having a party myself but a) my friend G is going to have one which I will probably go to and b)
BTW, the demonstrator was Rachel Knight and she was very nice. She demo'd 2 cards (beautiful) and we made another. The stamp set I bought was the Baroque Motifs one, and some of the Brocade Background paper. I so, so, so wanted the scallop punch but I just couldn't get it this time.
Mum got it though. Maybe it might like to have a holiday at my house doncha think?
