    Leek Frittata:
    1 leek sliced in halved rinsed and chopped in slices (Half moons)
    1 large potato cut into 1cm cubes
    4 rashers bacon sliced
    Dash of ricebran oil
    8 Eggs – Beaten with S&P to taste.

    I fry the leek, potato and bacon in the dash of oil till half cooked – then I have a square silicone baker I spread the mixture into. Pour over the egg mix.

    Now this is what makes it extra special – sprinkle it with grated cheese and a mix of sunflower, pumpkin and sesame seeds. Bake for approx. 30 mins.

    CHICKEN AND VEGETABLE CRUMBLE
    Recipe can be made 2 days ahead – suitable to freeze and suitable to microwave.

    2 cups (360g) chopped cooked chicken
    500g frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
    1 x 440g can condensed cream of asparagus soup (or other soup of choice)
    ⅔ cup stale breadcrumbs
    ½ cup grated tasty cheese
    2-3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

    Thaw the frozen vegetables and drain them to remove as much excess liquid as possible.
    Combine the chicken, vegetables and soup in an 8 cup capacity ovenproof dish.
    Mix the breadcrumbs, cheese and parsley in a bowl, then sprinkle the mixture over the chicken and vegetables.
    Bake at 180ºC for about 40 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned and the crumble is heated through. :-))

    Scallop Potatoes with cream and chicken soup
    Layer thinly slice potatoes and finely chopped onion… potatoes being the last layer. Mix together cream and a pack of cream of chicken soup (can add a little crack pepper, crushed garlic, whole grain mustard for more flavour) pour over potatoes and onions. Sprinkle with grated cheese then sprinkle with breadcrumbs (so cheese doesnt burn) bake at 180deg til cooked .

    I live alone so do not have to conmsider others tastes, so deep frozan small meals from the supermarket are just fine. A small tray of Watties Sweet & Sour Pork, half a cup of Peas & Sweet corn, cooked for 10 mins. in summer some coleslaw. Dessert is always fruit, an apple, persimon, nectarine,or other as prefered.No huge stomach with this diet and a fine variety of deep frozen meals available.If you are lucky, as I am, you will have a local bakery providing very nice take home meals. I do not like cooking, suppliers are far better at it than me.

    Look after yourself. 🙂
