The Challenge - Sunday Week 1

Still in Albany this morning, so a delicious breakfast at THE place to have breaky in Albany, Dylans on the Terrace.

We both enjoyed the Breakfast Stack - mushrooms & onion, spinach, bacon and a poached egg all on toast served with a grilled tomato. DH had his with a sausage. Only criticism is that neither of us liked the onion with this, even DH who loves onion with anything.

On the way home from Albany we called in to IGA and bought some fresh fruit and vegies, soy milk and some EasiYo Greek yoghurt mix. Ooh, and I did cheat, because I bought some bacon. There's only a little bit left in the fridge and I can't live without bacon.

Cost: $59.29, so Total Spend now $75.09.

Lunch was a sandwich of tomato from the garden, avocado and dijonnaise on home made bread.

Since I still had the roast vegies from Friday night and the turkey wings, tea is re heated vegies (steamed in the Varoma),  gravy already made Friday night and some broccoli purchased today. Since the turkey wings were tough, I decided to cook them further. Made a miripoix of carrot and onion, diced really finely thanks to my birthday present - a gorgeous Global Cook's Knife. Saute in olive oil and add deglaze white wine. add a little water. Place turkey wings in liquid and cook on very low for an hour. I used my Le Creuset casserole for this.

Remove legs from pan and place in Thermoserver. Add liquid to Thermomix bowl. Blend on speed 5 for a few seconds. Add the gravy to the liquid and thicken with a little cornflour if necessary. Cook on 100, speed 2 for 5 minutes or so until boiling and any added cornflour is cooked. Remove and pour over wings. This should keep warm while vegies are steaming. I put the beans, which were already cooked, in a small dish in the base of the Varoma and roasted cooked vegies in the top part of the steamer. No need to wash bowl, just add 500 ml hot water.  Have broccoli ready in basket to add to the bowl in the last 5 to 6 minutes of steaming.

No dessert, we don't need it after last night!

Delicious! Very frugal and no little bits of left overs sitting in the fridge.

Total Spend still stands at $75.09
