I think I’ve earned that title today! Not only did I clean, scrub, vaccum, do a few loads of washing, and do a bit of a grocery shop, I made three huge meals to see Hovi and I out for the week. Plus my mum is coming up from Palmerston North next Friday so a bit of pre-made food in the freezer will see us alright.
First up in the cooking stakes was making an amazing lasagne from Nigella’s latest cookbook “Nigellisima”. First up it has hardly any cheese (and I loooooove cheese) but trying to not consume my weight in lasagne in one meal is a bonus. It’s plumped up with boiled egg and ham and some artfully arranged mozzarella throughout the layers.
Accompanied by a glass of this…ok, maybe a few of these…
…it made me want to dive into the lasagne straight away. It’s so pretty right?
But no. Onwards to the next meal. A very quick and tasty beef stew thatI’ve made before courtesy of a recipe from American Food. Lots of stewing beef and an armload of veges. Have I mentioned by now my forearm is seriously aching due to the mountain of veges I’ve chopped? It’s hard work being a domestic goddess I tell ya.
Here’s the stew studiously bubbling away.
Not to be outdone a final pot of homemade vege soup.
And which of the three are we having for Sunday night dins? I think the stew with some crusty cheesy bread. What have you been doing this Sunday?
