Slow cooked a whole beef cheek for 12 hours overnight in ale and root veges - it was awesome and shredded beautifully at the end. Then reheated and cooked little dumplings on top (Edmonds recipe which was awesome as I'm not normally a fan) and they were lovely and light.

Husband, two teenagers, Stanley & Jed the greyhounds, one quail (Hawkefrost), one budgie (Chaos) small productive surburban section.

Yes...!!!

I must confess to chips and eggs far too often. Especially while my neighbour is providing so many fine free range eggs right now.

Not too good for the waistline, but my excuse is the need for a bit of extra insulation in the Winter. Spring is in the air and the garden greens are growing, so it's time to get serious about living on Nutri-blasts (greens, nuts & seeds, and fresh fruit blended together at high speed in the nutri-bullet) I just started a tray of wheatgrass to add to the smoothies.

Also as the days get longer and the garden's needs increase, I will spend more time getting the exercise of digging and planting, mowing and mulching etc.

So while I do cheat on the easy meals far too often, I'm also very conscious of the need to eat well often enough to maintain reasonable health. I have a large garden, increasing orchard (picked the first avocado yesterday), and fishing on the boundary.

I do find that my eating habits become far more regular when I've had a boarder to cook for... But they usually become more trouble than they're worth.

Kids have long since grown up and moved on... Killed off the missus... No desire for another full time partner, so just me in a big house with a big kitchen... and a big pantry...!!!

Polpettone (which is Italian for large meatballs). Found in a free meat recipe book I picked up at New World. Best meatballs ever - big size, no browning, baked in a casserole dish. Easy, easy, easy.

Made a savoury walnut and carrot loaf - baked like a big, thick slice in a flat, open roasting pan / baking dish.
First attempt - it wasn't easy and some refinements needed - but it was certainly tasty enough.

Crayfish Morney, enough to feed eight people and some nice white wine to go with it. Australian guests think we live in Paradise. I would have to agree :)

Cheers,
Ronnie
