It's a long weekend here in NZ and a rainy one at that. And today, the first official day of winter.
Today has been really relaxed. A big English breakfast cooked by Mr H with good coffee was enjoyed. I sorted washing and had a quick tidy up and vacuum then spent most of the afternoon in the kitchen.
Chicken stock made with saved roast chicken carcasses that I have been storing in the freezer.
Spaghetti and cheese bread baskets for lunch. The leftover crusts I coated with Olive oil and cheese, then dissolved some vegemite in boiling water and mixed through the crusts and baked till crispy. The kids loved these. These will keep for a few days in an airtight container.
Apricot loaf. Enjoyed buttered and washed down with lots and lots of tea.
And finally biscuits for the tins. I used an Anzac Biscuit recipe but used honey instead of sugar and added currants as I somehow have two bags of these in the cupboards.
Mr H took care of dinner. Homemade pizza and pasta with tomato and salami. Delicious.
Tomorrow we plan on heading out, maybe round the coast to the beaches, rain or shine.
I hope your weekend has been a good one xo
