Recent Eats

A quick summary of some of the yummy things I have eaten/cooked in the last few weeks---

Roast pork and salad on our new BBQ- roasting is SO easy in it.

Prawn Pizza at Il Gambero on the Park, Carlton (Our fave Lygon St haunt... has been for years. We used to frequent the old location before it burnt down. But, the new location is more modern with still the authentic Il Gam feel to it, and the food still rocks!)

Proscuitto Pizza at Il Gambero on the Park, Carlton

Pumpkin Gnocchi at Il Gambero on the Park, Carlton

Do it Yourself Mexican at home- hard and soft tacos, mixed salads, taco mince, marinated chicken, homemade guacamole, sour cream, cheese, salsa. Yummo!

Scotch Fillet with vegies and Cauliflower Mash-loving cauliflower mash at the moment. It is a great low carb alternative to mashed potato. So easy to make too- simply boil cauliflower until soft, and puree with a bar-mix. Then add whatever else you like... I added chives, garlic and some parmesan cheese.

Tofu Burger at Invita (next to Queen Vic Market). This tofu pattie was amazing- the amount of textures and flavours packed into this one pattie made a very nutritious choice whilst on an excursion with school.

My favourite home-made breaky- poached eggs on sourdoah with smoked salmon, avocado, spinach, asparagus and dash of hollandaise. My poor boyfriend never gets his beloved 'eggs and bacon' on a weekend morning anymore, but he really enjoys this healthier option anyways. Such a great start to the day!

Jimbo Muesli- created by the great Jim Stynes himself, who eats a raw food diet as part of his battle with cancer. Filled with unprocessed, untouched nuts, seeds, grains, oats and goji berries, it makes you feel instantly healthier! Another great start to the day... And, thoughts and love are with the creator of this muesli everyday...

Lettuce and Herbs from my Mum & Dad's thriving vegie patch!!! 

And, with Christmas around the corner and a nice long holiday in Malaysia... stay tuned, because the best is yet to come. Wishing a very happy holiday season to all my readers- may you all have safe and wonderful Christmas and New Year.
