We have been very busy in the kitchen this weekend. My sweet daughter baked us some of the Maize Cookies from Ivory Coast but added some coco....they are delicious. She also made her dad a sweet treat for Fathers day: low GI Mocha Chocolate Squares. Lastly she baked some cheese muffins for our Fathers Day breakfast today. We had a lovely breakfast with my dad and my brother this morning.
You all know the oven never goes on for 1 dish at a time so while the oven was on for all her baking, I made us a fantastic spinach and feta quiche for our enjoyment. The spinach was all freshly picked from my little garden. I find it so satisfying to use what we have grown in our meals.
During the week we enjoyed a Spanish Meal. The kids didn't have a hand in this one as they were at soccer practice. We thoroughly enjoyed our sausage, potato and pea tortilla....we will be making this one again!
Tonight it is Italian which seems fitting as Italy is playing this evening. J is going to make meatballs in tomato sauce with spaghetti. It is his Fathers Day gift to his dad and a good choice as my husband should have be born Italian...pizza, pasta and ice cream are some of his favourites! Of course it will be liberally sprinkled with fresh, shredded basil straight from the garden!
