What's For Dinner

We are almost at the end of the first month of Autumn (Fall), but if you live in Sydney you wouldn't know it.

We had a friend from Wellington, New Zealand with us this weekend who asked if we knew when it would start to get cold, I said that I recall always spending Anzac Day swimming at the beach and that I didn't think this year would be any different (for my foreign readers, that is a national holiday similar to Armistice/Remembrance Day that falls on the 25th April). It has been hot and sticky so I'm still on light meals, salads and BBQs.

So my menu for this week:
Monday - Grilled procscuitto, eggplant, fetta and capsicum stack with mescalum salad
Tuesday - Honey-glazed chicken and kumera (sweet potato) skewers with spinach pecan and salad
Wednesday - BBQ pork cutlets with avocado salsa and couscous salad
Thursday - BBQ prawns with chilli lime dressing and rocket, blue cheese and pear salad
Friday - Thai fish burgers
Saturday - Homemade pizza
Sunday - Pesto chicken with grilled zucchini (courgette)

Bon apetite!
