Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs…

Kids love Meatballs!  It’s another food that could contain literally anything as far as they are concerned (and depending where they come from its possible they do)… but home-made it’s possible that they’re full of good nourishment, love and a few hidden extras if you like?  This recipe is very simple, it makes 18 meatballs which can be frozen.  If you’re feeling adventurous you could split the meat 50/50 beef & pork (or anything else you fancy), add baked sweet potato, beetroot, onions…Jello (no not really) Ingredients: 450g Organic Beef Mince 100g Homemade Breadcrumbs 1 egg yolk 1 tsp salt 2 tsp mixed herbs Method: 1.

If freezing, place them straight in to a plastic storage pot. 4.

Cheap as Chips with Bestival Sauce

This is a great side or snack… The kids love it and I love picking on it when they have it! Using olive oil, and cutting out any dehydrated potato or additional starch or flavour that can be found in commercial potato products, these take 25 minutes in the oven.  As quick as most frozen oven chips, and cheap too! Ingredients: 1 medium potato per person cut in to 6 1 tbsp olive oil pinch of sea salt sprinkling of paprika (added by my lovely neighbour Louise) Method: 1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C 2. Cut the potatoes in to eight and spread out on a baking tray. 3. drizzle the olive oil and pinch of sea salt over the potatoes and give them a shimmy. 4. bake for 25 mins (or until the flesh is browning and they’re cooked through) The sauce here comes from our Chilli Chicken Bestival Kebabs recipe… Which was inspired by Tim’s weekend jolly (sorry work trip) to Bestival a few weeks ago! If you fancy chicken with the chips …
