after a big shop Friday and an afternoon out yesterday, today was another busy sunday in the kitchen.
first my good old egg and veg breakfast, no bacon this time, i'm not opening another pack til sept.
started the longer term prep work by putting up a new batch of 5-berry mix from the frozen berry stockpiles in the deep freeze. then cooked up my cup of steel cut oats. and portioned it out into containers with the fruit etc. so the oatmeal berry walnut and flax breakfasts for the next few days are lined up.
roasted an eggplant and whizzed it up with salt lemon garlic and tahini, also pressure cooked a cup of chick peas and whizzed them up with salt lemon garlic tahini and cumin. so I have small batches of baba ganoush and hummous at hand.
spanakopita: never a small job although I think i'm getting more efficient with the process. prepped and wilted all the greens, mixed up with egg and feta, wrapped the whole thing up in phyllo, baked 25 mins, and it's good to go. cut it up into four servings, portioned it out into lunch containers. just need to make a little tzatziki.. TOMORROW.
since I had decided to leave the kale out of the pie, I steamed it up separately for future side dishes with something or other.
the spanakopita had to share the oven with a nice local grass fed rump roast, which I had scored and stuffed with garlic salt and pep, then seared, and then slow cooked in a cup of bouillon with new potatoes and onion, and it came out SO TENDER AND DELISH. had it for sunday dinner. planning to use the leftovers for cold cuts in salad wraps, for when I am tired of spinach pie
somewhere in there I had poured some jerk marinade over a pork tenderloin and let it sit there a few hours, eventually it went into the toaster oven to get roasted up nicely. more fodder for wraps.
after the pork was out of the little oven I put in a huge sweet potato. that's put aside with the kale for easy side dishes later.
so, didn't really have lunch today but dinner was great - altogether it was roast beef with horseradish, broccoli, carrot, onion, potato and gravy. making myself hungry again thinking about it
