As predicted last week was a hot one – summer has definitely arrived early this year. Apparently this week is not going to be much better – which is not a lot of fun when you’re trying to bake and cook for Christmas!
The menu last week went well with just a couple of minor alterations. The spaghetti on Sunday night didn’t eventuate, so has been rescheduled as my daughter is desperate for some ‘meat’ spaghetti (we haven’t had it for a while).
After the markets last week I have quite a lot of carrots, avocados, sweet potato and potatoes that will be used in salads and roasting. The first lot of stone fruit was also available and with plenty of nectarines in the fridge, I’m planning some nectarine chutney for Christmas gifts.

Tuesday – Spaghetti Bologanaise

Have a great week!
