Oh, my delcious home grown cherry tomatoes – on the forbidden list!

Breakfast

My ‘usual.’  Getting good at these Rutabaga fritters now.  Sliced free range pork fillet with avocado.

Quick and easy

Out and about this morning.  Off to source some Plantains.  They are very hard to get in Perth.  Went to Farmer Jacks in Girrawheen and they are Green Cooking Bananas.  Not a plantain in sight.  I got some anyway, hope to find a recipe before they get too ripe!

I also visited a shop in Mirrabooka which sells Plantain chips.  I bought a couple of packets to try them out.  Reading the ingredients quietly at home, I have reservations about the Palm Oil’ as I have never been a fan.  From a quick google, it is a saturated fat and not a trans fat, what I didn’t realise is one of it’s other names, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, which I avoid like the plague.  I guess these will be tossed. 🙁

Lunch

More food on the run.  The lucky last of the Slow Cooker Beef Stew, cooked mushrooms with sliced cucumber.

Simple and satisfying

Dinner

A big family dinner to tonight and they were all keen to share my Crispy Roast Chook by Sarah Wilson’s ‘I Quit Sugar for Life’, page 111.  It is really a winner.

What a stroke of fortune, our guest came from the Caribbean and knows all about cooking Green Bananas, Taro and Yams!

I was not going to miss this opportunity and quickly cut up the green bananas and put them into water to boil.

I will peel and freeze.  I am still on the hunt for Plantains!  Want to make some home-made plantain crackers.
