Are you a Mac & Cheese lover? I am, it was my favourite way to eat pasta as a kid. But now I like my Mac & Cheese with extra mix ins.
Bacon is always a go to, but chorizo can work, cherry tomatoes add a pop of freshness and tuna is delicious.
For this version I added roasted cauliflower & smoked bacon. The cauliflower add a slight nutty flavour & the bacon is cripsy, smoky & well bacon just makes everything better right?
Going to the butcher is one of my favourite parts of grocery shopping. Our local butcher i9s amazing, they always have a tonne of variety and while their basics stay the same they change things up a little as well. Sometimes they have these amazing smoked pork chops, they make in house smoked kabana and bacon and they always have a huge variety of ever changing sausages. Last week I saw these mini pork and macadamia sausages and I immediately knew I wanted to use them for breakfast hotdogs.
I mentioned yesterday that Marc loves choc mint, his favourite ice cream is mint choc chip, he also loves mocha’s so when I was thinking about with drink to share with you this week, this frappe was the obvious choice.
This saturday is going to be all about Marc, it’s his birthday 🙂
We don’t have a lot of plans, but we are going to the movies and to dinner with friends. Marc will prbably want to have a pretty chill saturday morning. I am planning on making him special breakfast, maybe my mocha pancakes…
This dessert was inspired by Marc’s love of Iced Vovo biscuits.
Have you tried them? They are a shortbread biscuit with raspberry jam, marshmallow and coconut. They are delicious and a childhood favourite for most Australians.
