  1. It was Quiche. Bbq sauce. Filled. Quiche. 🤢. Tonights tea tastes better than it looks. Nasi Goreng with Wedges and Veges. Lunch includes Nanas Dry biscuits Fried rice Salami and cheese toastie And what he thinks are fish cakes This weeks theme appears to be the Sahara - dry. He's threatening to just get cereal 😂.

    Kidlet gets veges, iddy biddy lamb chops (i cut bone out, he cuts rest) and yorkie with bisto for tea. Nothing fancy - just proving I feed him when dads away really 😁.
  3. Hi ho! Hi ho! And off to work he goes... We're not really going to start off strong. Dinner tonight is a Pepperoni Pasta and Veg. I really need to find out when they get supplies. It looks a little ehm. Dry. Quiche Apparently. Pastry on top. But he's not sure, will let you know tomorrow. He called this "weird salad" I think feta, beet and some kinda nut. Now. My husband has fairly big hands compared to me. But they're just average man sized hands as far as I know. He's not a giant. He wears just XL black gloves for BBQ. So..

    I don't often play with pastry, climates just wrong. But the final battle in the epic war against Christmas Hams came down to leek and ham pies. Not going to lie, did not bother with sides. Filling. Ham, leek, onion, wholegrain mustard, creme freche or however you spell it. Pie. We went back up to 42c today as some kind of final (hopefully) f you guys from Summer. Not really pie weather 😂🥵.

    It was my kids birthday this weekend. He requested cheesy bread and tacos. We had 3 guests on his actual bday (saturday). I made cheesy bread. Hub smoked beef for the Tacos. I chopped for 17,000 hours for the DIY Taco Bar, using every bowl in my house. (It was probably 1 but I hate D.I.Y taco bars). Today we did his kids party with 14 kids at a bowling alley in the big town with soft play and noise and stress (no covid here so, 3 parties at same time with like 40 children.. the noise.. oh gosh the noise...).

    @Kim Shook After trying every recipe under the sun, I stick with Nigella for my "I just need good Roasties" days. Par boil, screaming hot duck fat, heated to 250c while the oven warms. Dust with polenta and salt. Tip in, swear a lot when you get splashed, turn down to 220c, flip after 20 mins, leave alone for 30 more 😁. Nom.
  8. @SmithySorry I meant - I caught myself "liking" a bunch of peoples posts on your thread that were months old. Which would have meant people waking up to 20 notifications of CCST liked your post. Like Spam mail. Sorry for confusion.

    My "I Really Want A Roast but I Can't Be uh... Bothered" craving tamer with wallpaper paste Bisto as the boys demand.
  10. Just want to apologise for the post like spam. I might stop, but it dosen't mean I don't like. When I first joined EG I just read and read and read all the old blogs. Now I'm active but I still like to read - this is a brilliant blog that I really enjoy. So I save it up, and read it like a book all at once every season, rather than post by post. Keeps me occupied. Just didn't want you to think I was being annoying 😁. Your adventures captivate me.
  11. Okay to cap the swing. We start with a dinner of Chicken Fajita with the super traditional sides of mash and veg. Budgets tight so one slice of carrot only per person 😂. The breakkie Idreamof(being a)toastie. Far out he's gone all shy and put a thong on 😬😉. Filo or possibly a burrito? Can't ask yet he's driving. Sambo. Noodle Salad He still takes fruit but, like the toasties, those photos are getting boring. And here concludes the most recent swin
  12. I think the feet is a very Queensland thing. You never wear socks if you dont have work boots/shoes on and shoes in the house is a big no. The kids can run bare foot on rocks at full pelt in a way that... well.. makes my toes curl. One of my favourite days of the year is the one where its cold enough to wear slipper socks and the short week following it!. And now back to food before we get busted. Something cheese related perhaps 😂.
  13. Spag Bol and Veges... Never really thought of having sides to spaghetti that wasn't garlic bread. Roll, biccies, apple, wrap... hmmm methinks he may be tired of my shennanigans. But he still loves me, roll close up 😂. Ceaser, he really liked that last time. " The worst Quiche I have ever tasted in my life - tomato sauce couldn't even fix it " (rational world - how would tomato sauce fix a quiche 🤢). Impressive title. I have made some baaaaddd Quiches in my time 😂. But apparently it was texture - li

    I was exhausted tonight. So I asked child if we could be lazy and if I could make a dinner he would also take in his lunch box - come on spag bol 🤞. "Of course mummy. I'll just have Sushi. Tuna & Chicken" I.. uh.. well I meant more.. like.. uh ok yes supreme leader of my heart.
  15. I got myself all down in the dumps and unpostie, so my order may be confused. This post is Friday tea and Saturday lunch, entitled "Help me Guess what this is Cos I have Forgotten". Dinner is easy. Featuring Hobbit Feet. Pumpkin Salad? Burrito? And more feet. Gonna have to give him some tips because I cbf to edit! Meat and salad sambo. Leftover Roast?? But with rice? Biccies + more damn feet 🤦‍♀️😂
  16. Okay for dinner we had a Chili, Rice & Veg situation. Suprised how often they use parsnips - I'm not a massive fan and they are quite expensive over here... compared to UK anyway. Fruits Back Cheese and ham Toastie - I have learnt this is breakfast ritual, they all take one for morning meeting so the press is hot and its quick. Salami and Cheese Asian noodle salad Mystery Patties with Mayo. They turned out to be leftover vege burgers and not all that yum.

    Baked Chicken Legs & Rice "Mum, did you burn my chicken" "No it's just the spices" "It's okay if you did" "Taste it it just went dark, it's fine" -eats- "Fine like Charcoal" 🙃
  18. Lamby Night / Day Lamb Korma with silverbeet, rice and a cauli broc bake. A teeny tiny lamb and something roll Dry ass biccies - not sure if sweet or savoury... be suprised if sweet. Sausage roll slices Vegetarian Lasagne Pasta Salad - looks like yesterdays with added pesto. Cold Meats I asked if he ate everything for the day food. He said half the pasta was thrown as too full and the lasagne went after a bite - the lasagne may ha
  19. Back in the hole. Kicking off with a sweet and sour pork with sweet potato fries, and veg. It has been labelled "Delicious". The next days meals are to be. Sundried Tom, cheese and spinach Pasta salad. Crackers Parmy Coleslaw (looks delish). And a ham and cheese yettobetoastied and a dr defeater. It's raining up there at the moment - coal mines in the rain are not fun and rather grubby. I've just discovered my first 'this being apart thing aint so ba

    Can you send me your process please if willing? We've (he's) used our smoker like 4 times. Really interested in wood used and leg weights and temps etc (just a how to for newbs if you get me). We buy a ton of butcher or processed ham for school sandwiches. Intrigued.

    Tonight Kidlet gets Lamb chop with a greeky lemon garlic oregano etc marinade, cheesy mash potato bake and veges. He is growing. And EATING. The other night he followed his burger with an after dinner snack of... my burger. I'm setting up a savings account for his teenage years.

    Dinner 2021

    I cooked 😮. Sorta. I made some beef pucks, smashed them on the BBQ and assembled with american cheese, onion, mustard & ketchup. It's a start. Kids happy not to have a freezer cleaner meal at least.
  23. If a toaster oven is a big glass cupboard that has a heater in it that keeps food at a constant temp (like in a bakery / pie shop / gas station) - then yes. If not ... well we're all going to have to sit down and come up with some universal appliance names because it's getting confusing!
  24. And the winners were: Arancini Balls well done guys. In my defence I have never had them before! After my husbands description of creamy veges in rice deep fried... I might keep that up. Yes, cooking supplies in crib hut are microwave, pie warmer and toastie maker and a fridge. They collect their lunches at the evening meal (or breakky if they are game) and then put chilled stuff in fridge and stuff they want hot in the pie warmer so its warm when they come back to crib hut (eg the arancini balls, frozen lamb etc).
  25. I will pose to my husband the suggestion he does not have an intensive work load. But maybe not whilst he's walking 7-10km on coal a day hauling 20kg boxes of explosive in 47c heat.. 😂. You're are right he's not underground though - wrong on the sweat! 😁.
