The weekend and some cooking.

Saturday night saw me and Luke make a mad rush to the doctors. You see, Luke was playing ‘wheelbarrows’ with the boy from down the street. You can just see where this is heading, can’t you? Yep. Luke’s arms gave way and he fell smack bang… on the concrete path! He hit his nose and forehead. We picked him up and his nose started bleeding, so expecting the worst I raced him to the doctor. Turned out he hadn’t broken his nose, he just burst some blood vessels. Phew.

Then on Sunday he went fishining with Steve in the boat. My BIL went also. I think they had a good time. They caught plenty of fish. Luke caught the most! They even rocked up to the fish markets in the boat to buy some lunch! Not a million dollar cruiser or aything, but I am sure it was cool to get there by boat!

Here is Luke catching the first fish of the day:

Here is Luke and the Harbour Bridge:

And here is Luke with the ANZAC Bridge in the background, but what he loved more was the HUGE boat with the cars on it!

Yeah, I made the beanie too. LOL! Not my best effort, but a beanie nonetheless.

Next for some meal planning. I am one of those shoppers who go today to make dinner for tonight. I have no forward planning. In a bid to *gasp* budget, I want to do a weekly shop. Thinking of recipes to make is hard! A friend at sewing class told me about ww.taste.com.au so I tried it out. Looks good. So armed with a great big shopping list that even included wine (for cooking of course! LOL!) which was a big step out of my comfort zone, Luke, Amy and myself hit the shops. So, just to remind myself of our menu I am going to post it here.

Tuesday/Wednesday
Slow-baked chicken pieces
Banana and rolled oat muffins

Thursday/FridayBacon, mushroom and tomato risotto
Spinach and bacon muffins

Saturday
I promised Steve he could have takeaway, he really wants pizza!

Sunday/Monday
Beef stroganoff and potato pies
Choc-chip muesli slice

I always make enough for leftovers the following night as it makes my life a little easier! 😉 And the treats are to cut down on processed packet things for the lunchboxes!

That’s about it really, I need to go and do some general house stuff. Thanks for dropping by! 🙂
