The kids and I were back at school this morning. Hard to believe Term 3 is now in full swing. Mr Busy's classroom had a nice clear, clean blue wall...all ready for this terms General Studies work to go up. They're doing 'Colour and Light'. I got to decorate one part of it with this morning's acrostic poems.
Whilst having breakfast and feeling like it just couldn't be real...that holidays had ended, I did manage to finish this week's menu plan.
Monday: Meatloaf & vegies
Tuesday: Irish Stew (in the CP)
Wednesday: Old Fashioned Chicken Pie (using l/o chicken roast)
Thursday: Cranberry Pork Roast & vegies (also a CP recipe)
Friday: Vegie Rolls, potato wedges & something to go with it
Saturday: Mrs R's Vegie Soup
Sunday: Tuna & Rice Casserole
Now I just have to have a bit of a brag and show you what I made. We had some friends over for lunch last week and they love Asian food, but never cook it. I, on the other hand, cook a relatively large variety of Asian meals. So I did chicken & corn soup (very easy!) with Char Siu Bau ~ otherwise known as roast sweet pork steamed buns. Also easy, just a little time consuming. Here they are. What do you think?! Clever....even if I do say so myself. And they freeze and reheat so well. You just steam them from frozen for 10-15 minutes!
