Well, as the months passed of being fully 'living on my own' (with Jake obviously) and the only woman of the house, basic meals had to be made. I could probably of lived off pasta, however
I have a male to feed and he needs meat! haha.
Thanks to many phone calls and tuition from my dear Mam the art of the Roast dinner was mastered! Yey! The time has now come to take the next step and tackle some very basic, yet none the less scary for me to make, savory meals. All on a budget of course.
Others would say that Jake and I can be fussy as we don't like 'crap' e.g Onions and other pointless ingredients in our food so making our own has the advantage of us know what is in it and that we don't have to wonder whether Black Beauty is in the oven.
First up was Lasagna!
I'm not a fan (don't eat beef) but I wanted to make Jake proud and freeze some so if I'm ever not here he doesn't starve. Here's what I did...
I'll say it again for those sniggering at their computer screens, I am aware this is super simple and easy to make but little steps and all that jazz eh?
Out of the 500g of mince I made two, Jake ate and taste approved the first one while the other is in the freezer for another day. :)
While I was on a roll and had the motivation to actually be cooking, I prepared two deep pan 14'' homemade pepperoni pizzas! - They're in the freezer too.
I hope you enjoyed my little kitchen adventures post. I'm glad to say that I can add these to my list of 'things I can actually cook' along with my many pasta dishes, enchiladas, curry, homemade chips, roasts and fry ups. Is there anyone else out there who lacks the same basic female ability??
