A Rainy Weekend Ahead - Suggestions Welcome :)

We've had about 60mls of rain since 3pm yesterday, with another 40+ due today. Our front and back lawn are waterlogged, and at work the paddocks have puddles, and the lanes are very soggy. A pic from just outside the stables at work below.

I'm not too upset though, it's Friday (woohoo), and I can feel a rainy housey weekend coming on :-)

We're planning to head to the market early and have a cooking weekend, cooking for our meals on the weekend, and to put some in the freezer.

So far the menu is:

- Pumpkin Soup
- Onion Soup
- Zucchini Slice
- Chicken & Zucchini Patties
- Slow cook Lamb Shoulder
- Apple Pie (never made one before)
- we're going to look thru the Masterchef cookbook and online for a couple of new things to try too

Suggestions more than welcome, we're open to challenges :-) 
so please feel free to leave a comment with a suggestion :)


  1. What a wonderful way to spend a rainy weekend! I love staying in and cooking too, it makes it so much more tolerable :D Oh and the slow cooked shoulder of lamb and apple pie sounds DIVINE!

  2. That's what I'll be doing this weekend,lot's of cooking.
    As for the apple pie,you could use a short crust pastry easy to google a recipe.When I'm feeling lazy though I use puff pastry,add raw apple,lemon zest,sugar & cinnamon

  3. Thanks Lorraine & PK, our menu ended up changing a bit, but planning another cooking weekend for the long weekend next week, so will be doing lamb shoulder & apple pie then :-0
