This weeks "What we ate ect,ect" is a bit different as I have been away (at Norfolk Island) My sister and I are both frugal eaters and even with very expensive groceries on Norfolk, we ate some wonderful meals. I have also included photos of a couple of lunches, because we were really active we were looking for a substantial meal at lunch time too.
Saturday Lunch - My sister made 2 beautiful salads to take with us to the airport to eat for lunch before boarding. She makes amazing salads!

Saturday Dinner - Pan fried Lamb with Quinoa and Silverbeet
Wednesday Lunch - An omelette with 1/2 a St Dalfour can in each one with avocado and parsley
And the dessert was equally delicious
Thursday Lunch - Another lovely Omelette
Friday Lunch - Can't for the life of me remember what we had!
Friday Dinner - We had a beautiful dinner and a hoot to boot at this new restaurant called "The Jolly Roger" I had the Yellow Tail Tuna with a black pepper and sesame seed crust, onion jam, steamed broccoli and herbed rice. It was so delicious! The owners of this restaurant are new to the island and the locals have welcomed them with open arms. The place was absolutely full with everyone having a ball, there was even a marriage proposal at the table next to us, they were also there for the Ballroom Dancing Week
We arrived home on Saturday afternoon, late and were greeted by lovely Hubby. He had made Chinese Roast Pork and Chinese BBQ Pork. What a delight to come home to!
And there was enough for dinner on Sunday night. Sweet!
Monday - we had beautiful Tempura Fish with Steamed Basmati Rice and home grown Bok Choy
Tuesday - Curried Pumpkin Soup with toasted Rye Bread and lashings of butter
|The weather has turned super cold, so this curried pumpkin soup warmed our toes|
So, tell me, what was on your menu this week? Did you go out for a "Lunch Special" or special occasion?
