Lazy Sunday



 



 
 


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
