Start the week off with a luxurious smoked salmon spaghetti - super easy and on the table in under half an hour. Creamy, flavoursome butter chicken is next on the menu. It's a great simple alternative to a takeaway curry. Finish the week off with a classic Kiwi dinner - bacon wrapped sausages with potato, kumara and egg salad.
This is a classic Kiwi dinner, jazzed up just a little bit. Bacon wrapped sausages add extra yum-factor, and the potato and egg salad includes kumara, extra veggies and a lightened up yoghurt-based dressing. Cooking the sausages on a rack set over a roasting dish is a good way to get rid of the excess fat – it can be […]
