Royal Bubble and Squeak

Since the floods in our area I lost the momentum to write weekly but I am back with renewed enthusiasm and some great recipes to share with you. After two of my courses being cancelled due to floods we were able to go ahead last week and what a fabulous 3 days were shared with 5 wonderful people. We had a full house.

Zinc Rich Ramen Soup
Do you know if you are you getting enough zinc in your diet? Our bodies are dependent on the mineral zinc for body growth and development and zinc is especially important for the nervous and reproductive systems and of course the immune system. The body does not store a pool of zinc so it is essential that we have a daily intake of zinc. As many are worried about borders opening up in Australia and the possibility of catching any viruses going around it is important to stay diligent with ensuring you are absorbing enough zinc each day.

I had this idea that I would start this week’s blog with some healthy tips but hey who wants healthy at this time of the year. I’ll save that for the New Year.

It’s non traditional fare I will share with my friends this Christmas and these are the recipes I bring to you this year. I’m making Mexican.

Marinated Zucchini, Spring onions and Corn bread Galette with Cashew Mascarpone and Sprinkle
How are you? I have had a great week since I last wrote. We managed to get away on a quick camping trip, which was incredibly relaxing despite getting caught in a hail storm, the walk we had planned on being closed, tree cutters at the camp ground for hours on the first afternoon and people doing paving for 6 hours with noisy machinery on the second day. Absolutely hysterical and we still managed to love so much of our two days away, the hours when it was quiet, the lovely wildlife and the moon shining through the trees. I sleep so much better when camping.

Jackfruit and Pea Mornay
Who has never had Tuna Mornay? Am I the only Australian who has never tried it? When I was growing up friends used to talk about eating it for dinner but I had never had it until last month. Yahoooo I am no longer a Tuna Mornay virgin. Well it wasn’t actually tuna I had, I would have been sick if it had been. It was a mornay made with jackfruit, chickpeas, peas and broccoli and it was delicious.
