That looks amazing, Val!! Well done *gives you marshmallows for dessert options*
I cook 80%+ of all my meals from scratch due to necessity. Last week, I roasted turkey drumsticks (in butter with rosemary, parsley and pepper). I also made chicken paprika from scratch (chicken, paprika, chicken stock, pepper, cream and flour), and cooked a silverside the "old-fashioned" way (nutmeg, cloves, raw sugar, pepper and apple cider vinegar). They were each accompanied with either, various vegetables (Mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli, corn and carrots), or a salad (tomato, cos lettuce, raw carrot, cucumber, beetroot and corn kernels). I ate a lot of leftovers for lunches and even a few evening meals.
My New Year's Resolution was to eat 4 rainbow meals a week, and I have managed to do this for the month of January so far!!
Tonight, I'm planning pumpkin soup (we grew the pumpkin so I'm hoping for a taste sensation
) with bacon bits, nutmeg, parsley, vegetable stock, pepper, cream and a white roux.
And you should know me well enough that I bake. A lot. Constantly. Cakes, biscuits, cookies, and slices.
