We are going to a get together on Saturday for a park lunch, BBQ facilities are available. Some of these ladies can put on a good spread so I would like to take something a little less common than your bog standard salad.
Hit me with your fave designed to impress dishes. I will shop for ingredients tomorrow and put together Saturday morning.

My fave salad at the moment is Pea, Fetta and Spinach.

You cook frozen peas, drain and rinse in cool water.
Plonk them in a bowl, throw in spinach leaves, chopped mint and crumbled fetta. Dress with lemon and olive oil. It's so yummy! It's good with bacon, cooled chicken or grilled salmon but totally fine as is.

Have fun!

Make a frittata mix and cook in muffin tins. Spray muffin tin with canola spray.
Fill mufffin holes 3/4 of the way with roast potato & pumpkin pieces, chopped sundried tomatoes, fetta, olives and spinach leaves.
Mix 8 eggs, 1/2 cup of cream, 1/2 a cup of flour and a cup of grated tasty cheese in a jug and pour over other ingredients.
Cook at 180 for about 25 minutes.
Take a relish to serve with.

I make bocincini sticks, thread baby bocincini, fresh basil, roasted red pepper and cherry tomato on cocktail sticks and serve with around a small bowl of balsamic vinegar.

Really easy and always go down a storm.

Leave the penis out of the ferrero rocher cheesecake if you want people to eat it.

Would like to try out your veggie muffins on weekend.

thanks for that Charlie & Lola - sorry, another question - aprox how many muffins would that make in quantities of 8 egg mixture?

Depends on size of muffin cases,  I suppose?



might try half quantity first as a trial original.gif
