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:
- shredded cabbage
- grated carrot
- chopped onions
- baby corn
- one small red chilli
- sliced yellow and red pepper
- soy sauce
- sweet chilli sauce
- assorted sprouts
- olive oil
- glass noodles
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!
