One of the highlights of my holiday was having a new family join us for the second two weeks of our time away. I knew the wife as my discussion leader when I first went to BSF a few years back. I thoroughly enjoyed renewing my relationship with her and getting to know her husband and children. One of the things I learned in the two weeks we had together was a more off-road approach to meals, where refrigeration and food storage is limited. One insights they shared was their preference for kangaroo mince instead of beef. It is far cheaper and lower in fat than the beef and they now prefer its flavour. I decided we should try it for ourselves, and have included it on my menu this week.
Monday: Roast chicken, potatoes, vegies
Tuesday: Mushroom quiche, potatoes, vegies
Wednesday: Fish, scallop potatoes, vegies
Thursday: Spinach & feta pie, salad
Friday: BBQ chicken wings, salad
Saturday: Pasta with vegie sauce
Sunday: Lasanga (using kangaroo mince), salad
I need to seek out a new fish recipe. I have nine meals worth in my freezer and I fear I will tire of it before we eat it all. Dh and two of the other guys caught a lot of Taylor, Aussie Salmon and Flathead. I prefer the salmon, but the others are pretty good too.
