Elaborate meal plans are out the window as we head into our crazy, busy and satisfying period over the lovely Summer months in beautiful Inverloch. It's straight back to scribbled notes and meals that are nourishing and tasty but very easy to prepare. This involves less time on the computer and more time spent focussing on new products and recipe ideas for your Summer BBQ's and meals.
SUNDAY - Chicken Souvlakis, if you have a spit on your BBQ or know someone that does, do yourself a favour and get Brad to make you up a Greek Marinated Gyros spit, we are using chicken thighs this week but lamb is just as amazing. We have been known to have both on the same spit! Served with some homemade tzatziki, sliced lettuce and tomato on a wrap, YUM. This is a real taste sensation!!
MONDAY - Marinated lamb shoulder slow cooked whilst we are all out at work/kinder/daycare. Served with Pasta or Zoodles. We pop the lamb in with some chopped tomatoes, turmeric, oregano, rosemary, lemon zest and just thicken it up to a gravy once the lamb is taken out.
TUESDAY - Pork chops baked in the oven with some quinoa salad. Roast some pumpkin cubes while the pork chops are cooking and toss through the quinoa with some fetta, rocket and prosciutto, a bit of lemon juice and olive oil and you have a really tasty healthy salad. If you remember to, soak the quinoa overnight to remove that bitter taste that quinoa sometimes has.
WEDNESDAY - You don't have to wait for Christmas leftovers for ham steaks! We have some great little nugget hams available in store. Slice them up and bake or BBQ then top with sliced pineapple and grated cheese, served with a simple salad and some oven baked potato wedges, this is a great meal for a warm night.
THURSDAY - Steak on the BBQ with a potato and asparagus salad.
FRIDAY - Home made Pizzas, topped with everyones favourite toppings, this is a great meal for the kids to help prepare, especially as they only like passata, ham and cheese!!
SATURDAY - We are going to try the Laksa paste that we have just introduced from the Lush Delights range, finished with some prawns and veggies, I can't wait to try this.
Have a good week and keep an eye on our Facebook page for photos of these creations and recipe links if I have used a recipe!
