G'day from Cathryn!
Hello! I'm Andrew's wife and co-Director of Andrew Peace Wines. As well as my busy business life, I have a hectic time keeping our big family fed and watered. This is my corner of the website where I'll be sharing some of my hints, tips and recipes on how to feed a hungry brood.
One of my favourite dinners, is Fresh Tuna,very easy dish, with great flavours!
Tips for leftover roast lamb
In Australia, the traditional roast to have is roast leg of lamb. It is one of our favourites . Sometimes you would like to have a roast but only have 2 of you at home and not sure what to do with the leftovers.
The Perfect BBQ
As you know Aussies love their BBQ's. I actually have mine built in my house, so I can use it all year round.
Pork with fennel seeds and garlic
My family and I love pork so I have recently cooked pork with fennel seeds and garlic. Here is how to do it:
Summer is finally here for you all and so this month’s recipe has to be with seafood.
The boys have a huge pumpkin patch, so I have thought of lots of recipes to enjoy the pumpkins while they are in season.
Spinach pie and Italian beans
As you know, I love my veggies and we try to grow as many as possible on our land. We had some friends round for lunch recently, so I picked some spinach, chives, mint and parsley out of the garden and made a spinach pie.
Christmas at the Peaces' and artichoke lasagne
We had a fantastic Christmas and, as usual, ate an abundance of food on Christmas Day. Our turkey was sensational!
When you have a big family, it’s difficult to please everyone all of the time. My kids are generally pretty good and will eat most things but I certainly know their favourites. I try to spread out these dishes across the week so that everyone gets something they love.
Hummus is a great staple to have ready in the fridge for a pre-dinner snack with pitta bread or a quick sandwich at lunchtime. I love that you can just put all the ingredients into a food processor and in a few seconds it’s ready.
Roasted garlic bread with feta
I love garlic bread – it’s great as a snack or to accompany pasta dishes or BBQs. Plus, it’s so quick and easy to make. My friend and author of Love Menu (www.lovemenu.com.au), Margun Carless, introduced me to her twist on the old favourite recipe which uses feta.
A week in the Peace household
As I mentioned in my first post, I have to plan ahead for our week’s meals otherwise I’ll run out of time during the week and be running around like crazy. Here’s an idea of what a typical plan would look like for the Peace household. I hope it will inspire you to do a similar plan for your family.
