This creamy tuna mornay pasta bake is really just a jazzed up macaroni cheese - it’s the perfect comfort food. If you don’t like tuna you could switch this out for cooked bacon, chicken or sliced sausages.

The warm kumara, kale and feta salad is a nice alternative to regular salads on cooler nights.

LEMON GARLIC CHICKEN

These lemon garlic chicken drumsticks are an inexpensive and easy dinner. The warm kumara, kale and feta salad is a nice alternative to regular salads on cooler nights. If you’re not a fan of eating meat off the bone (I know a few people!), you can use boneless chicken thighs instead. Kale works really well in the salad, especially if […]

TOAD IN THE HOLE

Toad in the hole is the perfect winter warming meal. Step it up a notch with caramelised onion gravy and steamed veggies topped with feta and pinenuts.

Stuffed baked potatoes take a little while to prepare but the wait is definitely worth it! 
Microwaving the potatoes first helps to speed up the cooking time.

MENU 18

Yum, yum, yum! I really enjoyed creating (and eating!) the meals for this week's menu. Crunchy top chicken with crumpet bread and salad is full of delicious textures and flavours. The vegetarian spaghetti bolognese has haloumi added for extra yum factor, and the stuffed baked potatoes are crammed with chorizo, corn, sautéed red cabbage and cheese.
