A Saturday Cook-Off

I know this is a teachers blog all about all things education, but I just had to share the productive day we have had today. Meals are made, the house is clean, washing is done, new songs have been downloaded on Itunes and now it is nearly 5pm on Saturday and I am on the couch watching Duck Dynasty!

I don't know which blogger is to blame for getting me hooked on this show - I remember one month, everyone was talking about it, we couldn't get it in Australia at the time, so I didn't look into it any further. Then my Aunt got us hooked on it when we were visiting Grandma in California and now I can't get enough of the hilarious quotes. Red-neck I know, but I still think it is hilarious. Uncle Si and Jase are definitely my favourites! As a winemaker, R was not impressed with their episode about making wine (from supermarket grapes). I am starting to worry a little that R might use some of their lines soon! We are starting at Season 1...

Here's what we put together earlier...
This turned into 15 freezer meals for the coming weeks, plus dinner for tonight. R is really looking forward to the Honey Garlic Chicken Crock Pot dinner. Simply Chicken, Onion, Garlic, Honey, Honey BBQ Sauce and Soy Sauce.

Tonights dinner is chicken coated in Good Season Italian Salad Dressing (Australian's you could use like a spring onion soup mix) with light cream cheese, chicken stock, dash of white wine, onion, garlic, carrot and broccoli. Mmmm yummy!

Add to that some Stout Bread made with Guiness and we are all set!

And in true teacher style I got excited when I went to Big W and found 20 cent exercise books. 

Now relax.... ah.....


  1. Wow! That is amazing that you are that organized and able to come up with that many meals that are now ready to go! I'm drooling over the chicken in the crock pot! That bread looks pretty yummy, too!

  2. What an awesome job Alison...and YUM! So organised.
