Ok, firstly a tip of the hat to Jane Kennedy, whose cookbooks adorn my collection and I love her recipes. Along with being good for you, they are also very tasty. Jane coined the term Piemakins as a pie served up in a ramiken, in her case, with a blitzed cauli top.
Jane’s books are superb!
Tuesdays and Thursday are busy nights with football training and Ryan not getting in until 7:30, so to find a meal that can have split times often falls back to omelette’s, toasted sangers and the like. Well I had a thought yesterday morning on the bike (as I was trying to build up to a 50 km ride event in a fortnight, and not too successfully when you head off without your water bottle, but I digress…). What if I slow cooked some braised food through the day, with enough left over for piemakins tomorrow night. It must have been a great idea, as I got a wobble up on the bike, and a retired gent walking on his zimmer frame, passing me on the right, managed to settle my balance.
So last nights dinner was a success with the crew, and with the ingredients in the
bank fridge, I was confident with our usual Thursday dinner dilemma.
First batch ready to go. I had the pumpkin carrot mash top to try and be good.
A couple of behind the scenes shot, I decided to get a flash out and off the camera to get some shots
Second batch at the ready

Song of the day: I made a new gym playlist this morning and I put some heavier stuff on it to help with heavier weights. The logic sounded right at the time, when I thought of it. So enjoy some Spiderbait – Monty. A great Australian band, and I own a most of their catalogue. Sarah Blasko coming on after this song in random order somehow worked as well… 🙂
