Heyhey.

It’s been a while.. as usual!

I’ve finally gotten myself one of those facebook-fan-style-thingymajiggy pages, so if you feel so inclined, give me a like by clicking here. It’s totally cool because I will be posting up some better quality pics, more info on posts / pics, and you comment, say hi, and all that bizzo fun stuff πŸ™‚

Now that’s out of the way, here’s a great weeknight meal to whip up for your loved ones.

It’s corned beef with lemon garlic potatoes, broccolini and sesame honey dutch carrots – good for a weekend dinner and great for leftovers.

Corned Beef
1 kg corned beef cut
2 T brown sugar
2 T apple cider vinegar
6 cloves
1 bayleaf
6 peppercorns
1 cut up onion
(optional: 1 carrot, 1 celery stick).

Place corned beef in a big pot and cover with cold water. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to the boil and simmer on medium for about 3 hours or until corned beef is tender. Slice and serve. Great cold, for leftovers, or on buttered bread! Mmm.

Lemon/Garlic Potatoes
1/8 cup melted butter
juice of two lemons
teaspoon garlic powder
teaspoon dried parsley flakes
seasoning
1/2 kilo – 1 kilo of washed potatoes, diced

Blend together melted butter and lemon juice. Add garlic powder, dried parsley flakes and seasoning. Place diced potatoes into a lined baking dish and pour over lemon/butter mixture and toss to coat potatoes. Bake in a hot oven (180 degs) for about 1-1.5 hours until potatoes are cooked through. Serve.

Honey Sesame Carrot recipe from Taste.com
