It all started off in a mission to save the ripe bananas in the fruit bowl. We got a big bag of bananas very cheaply at the start of the week....and by thursday....they were looking very ripe....so I decided to bake. First off I made Banana Yoghurt muffins.....Mich's recommendation....soooo easy to make and sooo delicious!! The kids absolutely loved them. Then right after that....a Hummingbird cake.....fav cake...which I lost the recipe to...thanks Mich for coming to my rescue again. Didn't get a photo of that one as the camera's battery died. hehehe
Then on Friday......our dinner plans to Hunchbax theatre restaurant fell apart....no lovely 3 course dinner while watching 'Humping in the Caribbean'....lol...not sure exactly what I missed out on. But in the afternoon, I rang DH and said....what about home made pizzas for dinner....I had found a really great easy pizza dough recipe and was keen to give our little pizza oven a whirl.
Picked up the two youngest from school, took them for haircuts and bought some ingredients for pizzas. This is my first time making homemade pizzas from scratch. I usually buy premade pizza bases...but I was adventurous this time. Here's Jordan.....making a half and half...half hawaiian and half meat lovers.
On saturday, we were still reeling from all the yumminess...so I made date scones which oh soooooo good and then garlic & cheese pizzas for lunch and a batch of olive bread. Both were absolutely delish..and the olive bread was a winner.
So today.....it was two big loaves of olive bread and a mixture of antipasto kinda dishes for lunch. We had:
- crispy salami slices
- pan fried spanish chorizo
- fresh baby spinach leaves
- pan fried slices of butternut pumpkin with mushrooms and some olives - this was out of this world
hehehe...so lots of food pics to show for this weekend. I've watched season finales of Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives. I've put a whole heap of stuff for sale on ebay. I've scrapped one layout and had a really great family weekend bonding over fooooooooood!!!
