Food ya’ll

Weekly food update

Interesting week last week.  Have decided I need to get more vegies into my world so went vegetarian for the week.  Mostly it was a bit of fun.

Salads were had and enjoyed.  If you ever get to Matamata stop into O Del Emz cafe.  They do a fabulous Roast Vegetable Salad with Aioli.  Sooooo going to hit Derek up for that recipe because I can’t live without whatever it is that he dressed those vegies in before serving with the aioli.

A couple of memorable dishes were found.


Ratatouille made with eggplant and zuchini 🙂  Fabulous chilli hit in the tomato sauce and just delicious.  Could eat that all the time.  Found it on Pinterest under vegetarian.

Also found this on Pinterest.

Really really good and so easy.  You do need decent quality potatoes for this but it was so so yum that it is going to happen a bit in the household from now on.

My sister is sending me a copy of the Thug Kitchen book so as soon as that turns up I am going to go mental on the vegie front.  Got to love a cookbook that swears at you 😀



Cross Stitcher, knitter, home cook, HVAC specialist, avid movie and TV watcher, reader and mum. I work full time and I'm not very good at sitting still so I love to try all sorts of crafting things from scrap-booking to ceramic work, but mostly I stitch. Heaven & Earth designs would be my favourite. I have had some major health scares in the past few years that I would not of expected to experience for at least another 20 odd years (born in 1971 so am currently only 45). Due to this I have a bucket list and its full of things right from books I must read to adventures I must achieve before I croak. I am always at the gym making myself stronger and healthier to fight my challenges and achieve my goals. Before the challenges I thought there would always be enough time and was just drifting along. You know how it is. Work, chores, kids, sleep, get up tomorrow and start again. I didn't really have any clear goals. I knew I wanted to travel but that was pretty much it. I was gaining weight steadily and didn't do anything much outside of the house and work. Since the challenges I have managed to get almost front row for both the Eagles and Elton John (expensive but you can't take it with you right), have had a day tour Kayaking around a lake and hiked the Tongariro Crossing. None of these would I even have considered 3 years ago. This is only the beginning :D Life is a gift and its what you make of it. You want it then you best be prepared to go get it :D
