What Am I Going To Cook?

Posted on June 22 2022

I have a dilemma most weeks, what am I going to cook for Friday night dinner's? You see it's our family night, that's 10 adults & 5 grandies, so lovely to catch up on everyone's week. Over the summer most of our adult children play in a family summer soccer team. I feed the children something before they head down to the soccer field, usually a fresh bread roll with cheese & vegemite. The adults arrive home after their games, shower & then we all eat, it's like they haven't eaten all week so I need to have something yummy for them to tuck into. I've been getting inspiration from our local lovely kiwi cooks Nadia Lim & Eleanora Ozich for their simple easy dinner ideas.

Winter is the time to sit by the fire & enjoy a good book, our home is filled with books, magazines, comfy couches with foot stools so you can just enjoy a good read.

Happy family times for us with our son Andy, wife Jade & baby Ardie back in New Zealand with us after being away for the past six years. They are settling on the coast so we will be seeing lots of them adding to the family noise. I hope you are getting through the winter without too many disruptions this year. We have our shop full of beautiful gifts for yourself or others. Thank you for your support, winter months are traditionally quieter but its always warm & cosy in our store & we are always happy & grateful to see you.
