Father's Day ... almost missed it !

Whoops !!!

Just realised today at about 3pm it was Father's Day ... uh oh ... and then made the fatal mistake of still not remembering to call my dear old Dad until 9.30pm !  eek ... almost missed it ... Luckily for me he's a night owl too ...  We don't always see eye to eye on certain things, but this is some advice he's given me that I do agree with  ~   thanks Daddy-o ♥

cooking ... it's never too late ... trust me ...

... for anyone who really knows me ... cooking is not my 'longsuit' ... What's a bit weird is that I actually love WATCHING cooking shows ... Nigella, Jamie Oliver, you name it and I'll watch them cook up a storm AND one of my fave movies is Julie and Juila !  but when it comes to ME being the one ... I'm not so confident.

i spent most of my youth living on vegetables and tins of tuna, or 2 minute noodles with tuna which seemed like a good idea at the time {and I have to admit, on the RARE occasion I find myself alone for a night I'm still happy to settle for a plate of vegies}.

Fast forward to my 30's when I got married and then proceeded to have a family.  Uh oh ... time to grow up and  learn to cook for real !!!   eek!  I found my husband was very supportive {basically he had to be if he wanted me to cook up meat and veg most nights} and taught me how to make most of the meals I cook these days...  Roasts, spaghetti bolognaise, rissoles, stir frys ... So for anyone out there who thinks it's too late to learn ... trust me - it's not ...  You just need a few basic recipes to get you going, then you're fine and if I can cook a meal for 6 people, then it's going to be a breeze for the rest the planet.

rissoles and gravy - a family favourite ...

good old spaghetti bol - also a fave ... and actually sooooo easy !

Tonight we had fish - basic - floured and fried with butter ... mmm- not something we have a lot of  since we live on a CATTLE property, but it's a real treat when we do! 

bon appetit !
