A Fortnight Featuring Feta

I did the groceries and I bought 4 packets of feta. Now I love the stuff, but that seemed like a lot. I think feta goes wonderfully with this season, it packs a salty punch, an excellent addition to a summer salad with tomatoes and zucchini.

We’ve been out of the meal planning habit. Christmas and New Years and summer holidays and all of that seemed to last so long in our house. Jay went back to work after New Years, but then after only 4 days took another week off so that we could go camping (check out a ‘what I ate in a day’ while camping video here).

We need to get back into a routine, and while the ‘kid activities’ are yet to start, work is back in full force, study never stopped, and we need to get back on the delicious healthy food train. So this morning I grabbed my stack of cookbooks and came up with some fun options. I’ve also decided to include my grocery list for this fortnight. It’s just what I needed to buy, so have a check through your pantry to see if you need any extra bits and pieces.
