New Year’s Day home-cooked lunch

We started off the year with a beautiful salad which was so appealing to look at and yummy to eat. Here’s the recipe!

Tropical salad

1 packet of mixed salad leaves (eg. baby spinach or rocket)
1 large mango
1 apple
1 avocado
A handful of cherry tomatoes
A handful of cranberries
A handful of pine nuts

2 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoon of honey

Chop everything up, mix the dressing and toss everything together. Easy!

#2 made some Salami and Cheese rolls from scratch. Click here for the recipe of the dough. After rolling the dough out into thin layers, she cut them into squares and topped them with salami and mozzarella cheese. They were baked in the oven at 200C for 20 minutes.

We had a simple but delicious lunch to mark the start of a new year and after that, the kids settled down to prepare for the new school year.

First lunch of 2014!

Sane tip: I am looking forward to the 5 of them going back to school. So nice to have my mornings free to do what I need to do, what I like to do, and to be able to spend more time with Kate.

Save tip: A gourmet meal at home on a budget!
