Cooking up a storm

This weekend I cooked up a storm.  I think my oven was on for about 8 hours!  It was a crazy time with all utensils in use.

All recipes were new experiments tested out on the Bean.  On Friday night I made a shrimp stir fry using glass noodles.  It was delicious.  Unfortunately I did not take note of quantities of everything I tossed in – the test was all about trying glass noodles for the first time. The ingredients were as follows:

We will definitely make similar dishes again.

I also mixed up some homemade lemonade using the seasons first lemons.

On Saturday and Sunday I worked on making some feta cheese – recipe and results to follow in a few days once we have sampled the result.

Then I had to restock our cookie jar as we are no longer buying any for our lunch boxes.  I baked a batch of buttermilk rusks and also made some coconut biscuits.  We should have enough for the next few weeks.  In between all this the Bean stirred up a delicious egg bacon and mushroom breakfast which we ate for lunch on Saturday.

I feel like I was washing dishes all weekend and my kitchen still looks like this!

  1. Jackie jy sal die eerste wees wat ek my skoonma se resepte voor gaan gee! She lived in Tzaneen, en het al hierdie sappe van die vrugte gemaak – ook konfyt gekook van papajas ens! Gee my tyd en ek kry dit vir jou bymekaar – so lekker om te weet iemand kan dit weer gebruik!


  2. Can I be your pool boy? I will not need any money, I will just work for food and drinks…..and will require you to rid the premises of all snakes, rodents, and insects…… You can’t beat that! That is a sweet deal! 🙂
