NOT A SPONSORED POST!
Rather, a shameful post- the kid commented this morning that 'that book never seems to move'.
Hmm, good point.
I've wanted this book for ages, when I saw it on a friend's bookshelf a few months ago, I asked her if she'd used it yet. She told me it was my birthday present but I couldn't have it until my birthday (about 9mths away at the time).
So when my sis went away for 6mths, (6weeks ago!) I swiped her copy. 'Don't get it dirty' were the only instructions....
So after the gentle nudge from the kid, I decided chicken pie sounded good, and it was one we'd seen him cook on the show (and drooled over). Neither of use are real fans of cooked carrots, so I thought I'd try the pie and and smashed carrots on page 92.
Product placement a la masterchef....
Instead of the french peas I chucked frozen peas in with the carrots. Yum!
Then the reminder why I don't do too much 'fancy' cooking;
thankfully 'the hubby' did the dishes.
So 30 mins? Not quite for me,but I'm a sole parent trying to get a kid in the shower and the whinging animals fed too! Definitely under an hour, and mid week too! And it's not like you have to scour through it for a quick recipe! If you want to leave things off, you can- we did have dessert, thanks to Coles!
