Easy (like a Sunday Morning) Lunch

Rob has always done a lot of cooking since we have been together. He loves to cook as much as I love to eat and is always willing to try news things. Since we moved down here and a few nights of the week Rob is working from out the back he has the luxury of eating with us – even if it is at about 5.00 or 5.30pm most nights. Because we eat so early I am the one that usually does all the cooking so come the weekend he is in charge. Win!

We were meant to have this for dinner Saturday night but due to an episode in controlled crying (more on that later) we both lost our appetites. Funny that! So we just drank instead – which helps calm the nerves and also sleep soundly so you can’t hear the crying that inevitably comes later in the night. That’s the method to our madness anyway. So, this became Sunday lunch instead which Daisy loved. It’s simple, easy and best of all tasty.

  1. yum. yum. yum. I love sunday lunches. so much slowness for a weekend.

  2. OMG! I might throw some feta in too. Delish! x

  3. Thanks for my dinner inspiration! x

  4. Oh Chantelle, you are a woman after my heart – a little bit of fetta mmmm.

    It looks so fresh and delicious. Gotta love a man who loves cooking. I have one of those too x

  5. Yum. That is my perfect weekend lunch.

    I’m blessed to have a husband to love to cooks and is bloody good at it too. My mum frequently comments that it’s interesting that all her kids married very good cooks, as my parents were a disaster in the kitchen growing up.

  6. Healthy and delicious! I’ve just read your post from yesterday too..food for thought. It’s amazing how fast some changes occur which change our lives completely. I am so glad you’re still happy with the outcome though.

  7. Oh Yum! I must try this receipe it looks so good xo

  13. Yum! Printed out and using this weekend when friends come for lunch.
    Thank you X

  14. Hi Beth,
    Thanks for this recipe. I’ve just made it for the second time in a fortnight for my family of 6. I’m happy to say they all loved it – right down to the 2 year old. I did it as a salad without the wrap (a few wheat intolerant family members). I’m going to try it with roasted capsicum too. Tell Rob he gets the thumbs up from us.

  15. That looks yum Beth. I can so relate to drinking instead of eating when there has been a drama day and I love that my husband cooks 3-4 days a week due to our work schedules. Also after 25 years together and 3 teenagers I have lost my cooking mojo. Keep putting your yum ideas on the blog please. My meal planning is improving I just can’t be…. most days

  16. We would have to take out a second mortgage to buy lamb here in lovely Lagos but I could try it with a wee goat – would it be wrong to call it Kiddy Kebabs πŸ˜‰
