Last night at our Old school Kitchen Kids cooking class we made Lasagna, garlic bread and pea, cabbage and fetta salad. The kids split the work up and all helped make it together this week. Making pasta is always fun with kids and who doesn’t love a good lasagne on a cold winters night? This salad is delicious and perfect when lettuce just doesn’t cut it in winter. We also had the added pressure of a child Studies baby that was on an overnighter with on of our students but little Jimmy was a perfect baby and slept until about 6.30, he did end up with a bit of food on him but that is real life!
Lasagne recipe from The Real food for Kids cookbook
salad is from Seafood Everyday, it is with grilled occy in the book
bread recipes in all my books.
We had our second stall at Salamanca on Saturday, I think the stalls look is improving? We made some signs with quotes from what people have said about my books, trying to get the message across that are great books-with recipes that work-the recipes are easy-it is more economical to cook-it is healthier to cook, in the ENTIRE 2 seconds I have while people are walking past the stall. You know a super easy task really, seeing that the evil processed food corporations have spent 50 years convincing people cooking is hard, time consuming and expensive, so that we buy there packets of crap. I go on about cost and health of cooking in Packed cookbook, this week I spent $117 at Aone Fruit market that included 4 dozen free range eggs. Pumpkin is $1.20 a kilo, a beautiful bunch of beetroot for $3 a entire bench full of lovely veggie and fruit and eggs. I’ll make some delicious meals out of that lot for the entire week with some fish, meat and chicken. Soup and an egg is an easy meal for busy kids through the week and we are using the thermos everyday for school lunches. It is an absolute lie that eating well is more expensive, we spent more on burgers for four of us for ONE meal on Saturday night. They were nice burgers but even the dodgy ones are still expensive in my opinion.
The new stall signs looked cute printed and framed and will look good if I go ahead and purchase the commercial tent for the stall, if we continue on in a more permanent and regular arrangement at this Saturday market. I offer a 2 book special for people at the market and I have now loaded that online so that tourists can order when they get home. If you order and want to pick up from Glenorchy just use the code localspickup so you don’t get charged the $10 post.
