From My Kitchen - Sunday 6th February

Again, I'm a little bit slack getting this up this week. Only by a day this time, though! It was an incredible weekend in Christchurch, up to around 35 degrees on Sunday. After an overnight stay at our family bach, and an afternoon of intermittent swimming and reading by the pool, I was far too knackered to use the computer last night! I was feeling a bit uninspired this week, but a flick through an old, but in-season Taste gave me some great ideas for using up lots of the yummy produce I have growing in my garden at the moment. Here's this weeks planned eats:

- cheese scones
- curried roasted chickpeas
- sourdough (my first loaf in a long time!)

Sunday - BBQ! Sausages, corn on the cob, zucchini and scallopinis, potato salad and balsamic marinated tomatoes and basil leaves
Monday - free-range pork Thai green curry with fresh garden veges and rice
Tuesday - Vietnamese summer coleslaw: green beans, cabbage, carrot, red onion, mint, coriander and basil with a spicy lime dressing, topped with a hard boiled egg
Wednesday - tuna pasta salad with fresh corn, capsicum, cherry tomatoes, broccoli and creamy pesto dressing
Thursday - homemade vege pizza (mushrooms, capsicum, roast pumpkin, tomatoes, zucchini, avocado, broccoli, pesto and chutney)

To Do
- soak rice
- make pesto
- make mayonnaise
- make pizza bases
