What we ate this week

Hello Dear Reader,

We have, at last, had some cooler weather here in Brisbane, Queensland, and have used the slow cooker, this week, for our second "Autumn-y meal"( First was the Borsch). It is much cooler in the mornings when I get up and the days are glorious. I am a bit of a cold frog and are already wearing a cardigan to and from work, on the bike.

We still had a salad with fish this week but I think it won't be long until we are having soul warming meals every night.

So this is what we ate this week-

Wednesday-Left Over Borsch

Thursday-Pork Sausages (baked in the oven) Colcannon and Salted Caramel Parsnips(yes, you read right! they were amazing, recipe coming soon)

Friday-Pan Fried Snapper with a big tossed salad

Saturday-We had the pleasure of going to a friends Wedding at Bribie Island

What a beautiful view 

Hubby and I, it's not often we get the chance to dress up a bit 

Beautiful, simple and scrumptious 

Magnificent Sunset 

They chose the venue for the view and the food. The food was just lovely, as was the view. I had the Fish and hubby had the Chicken

Lemon Pepper Coral Trout 

Monday-Prawn with Ginger and Spring Onion Stir Fry, Steamed Basmati Rice and Snow Peas

Tuesday-Green Thai Fish Curry

So, tell me, have you cracked out your slow cooker yet? What is your families favourite slow cooker meal?

Thanks for reading and have a great day.


  1. I tried a new to me slow cooker recipe last week. Beef with prunes. Super easy and a nice warming meal. Ingredients are gravy beef(cubed and browned in pan), tin tomatoes , packet french onion soup, 10 to 20 prunes. I served it with brown rice and steamed greens. Liz : )

    1. Ooh prunes, just love them, they add so much flavour to any thing, sweet or savoury. That sounds delish, thanks for commenting.

  2. Australians eat a lot of asian food now it seems. Yummy all of it.
