Monday Menu

What a lovely weekend, the weather was gorgeous, and we finally did our spring cleaning.

Our menu culminated with our lunch yesterday with friends-

Monday: Potato, carrot and pea frittata.
Tuesday: Broccoli, peas, beans, asparagus and bacon.
Wednesday: Pasta with bacon, cream, peas and parmesan.
Thursday: Broad bean risotto.
Friday: BBQ sausages and bread.
Saturday: Steak and silver beet.
Sunday: We served our friends marinated ocean trout with Pigeonhole rye and molasses bread with yoghurt cheese, marinated olives and soy roasted almonds. The main course was a slow roasted lamb shoulder, carrots, parsnips, peas and broad beans (from our garden) and steamed pink eye potatoes. Lemon and almond tart.

After all the cleaning and getting ready I was pretty tired, I fell asleep at about 7.30 on the window seat!
Hope you had a good weekend.

Love it, all of it! If there is bacon, even better. And huge points for the lemon and almond tart!

Thopse babies of yours are going to be so healthy with all that fine fare you eat Marian!
I had my first broad beans last night which was yummy, but I like the idea of a bean risotto :)

My girls (who won't eat cooked beans) have been tucking into raw broad beans this week!!
The lemon tart looks fab
And I agree with Sarah....lucky babies!!

What a delicious feast! Love the broad beans! Sadly their season has come to an end in Sydney, but I have preserved some, will be an interesting experiment!!
