In the Kitchen #2

As well as taking photos of my meals I have also been filming them for a vlog on my YouTube channel, Sophie and Lily. I used to regularly film these meals for the week vlogs but sometimes I just don't have the time, or know that I won't be able to edit for a while. But stay tuned for a vlog soon but otherwise keep reading :)

I should probably point out that I don't make different meals for my children; we always eat the same supper.

Chicken

The children and I ate this one evening when Rob was out for the night, which was good timing as the teriyaki sauce I had made wasn't enough so I added a sachet of black bean stirfry sauce which contains gluten. I served it with egg-fried brown rice and quinoa and Lily requested green beans, tenderstem broccoli and asparagus.

Curry

The same as last week, but this one contained butternut squash and sweet potato.

 It made a pretty awesome soup for lunches too.


Fish

I was going to make five-spice cod but I decided that we hadn't eaten fish fingers in a while, so I made a batch using gluten free breadcrumbs and cod loin. Since the five-spice cod was on the meal plan, the accompaniments remained the same but were a bit unusual. Enjoyed none the less.



Risotto

I had initially planned on making a buckwheat based risotto, however Ocado had sold out and our local smaller Sainsbury's didn't stock it so I used regular arborio risotto rice instead combined with green peppers and pancetta. I also stirred through a tablespoon and a half of vegetarian parmesan cheese to test the low-lactose but I won't be using it again as Rob felt itchy. I did let him know what I had added so maybe the effects manifested at that point and perhaps next time I will be sneaky, just to have a final try.

Sausages

On Sunday we had sausages, for me and the kids it was the first time in quite a while! Lily and Alexander had potato smiles, whilst Rob and I had quinoa.

Beef

Highly requested by Rob, this was quickly rustled up on Saturday evening. Served with edamame stir fried vegetables and egg-fried brown rice and quinoa.
