I haven’t been doing much cooking lately, but here’s a few offerings.

Scones – Had to make some scones to test out the jam I made the last couple of weeks (blood plum and strawberry). See here for the scone recipe. Of course that’s the homemade strawberry jam that I made the other week running down the side… I’d like to say it was the hot scone making the jam melt, but the jam didn’t set. Never mind, it tastes good, even if it is a bit runny!

Capsicums – some home grown sweet yellow capsicums stuffed with some mince (garlic and onion in the mince), some almonds on top and then some cheese. The idea came from a magazine and they suggested using pine nuts and grilling it, but I didn’t have any of them. I put mine in the oven so that the capsicum would cook a bit, everyone liked it at work done that way, but I’m sure either way would work.

Pizza – some Lebanese bread as a base, some tomato paste with mixed herbs, then home grown capsicum, home grown spring onions and home grown tomato on top (thanks to Dad for all the home grown stuff!), then some silverside or tuna and lightly sprinkled with some cheese. A nice, easy and healthy lunch and leftovers will also get taken into work tomorrow!
