Corn and Courgette Fritters [GF DF NF VEG]This recipe is based on my Bacon and Corn Fritters - they were so good, that my son took two cold ones to school the next day for lunch! I doubled the recipe, and popped a few in the freezer for hubby to have quick and easy lunches available.

Cut down on the spice if your family isn't keen on hot food!
Instead of potatoes as a side dish with this meal, it also goes well with rice - place the balls on top of the rice, and pour the tomato sauce over both.

I wish I had cut up and frozen the second loaf, as unfortunately, we didn't manage to get through it! I did find it was beautiful and moist the first day or two, but dried up a bit after this... however, 45 seconds in the microwave fixed that!

I never have any left to bring home!!

Sticky Salmon and Pasta [GF DF EF NF]This is a really simple recipe that is seriously tasty; it is adapted from alittlebityummy.com and is a hit every time I make it! I change up the green veggies depending on what is available, and as it only uses one fillet of salmon between 4-5 people, it is relatively cheap on the pocket.

Pork and Fennel Meatballs on Polenta [GF DF NF]This recipe was adapted from taste.com.au; I almost didn't make it the first time as I was out at an after school activity with my daughter, that took a good half-hour longer than originally planned. However, I decided (as I had the meat defrosted and all the ingredients ready) that I would make it anyway... and it was a hit! Not only was it on the table in just over 30 minutes, but it was devoured by everyone! A new family favourite!

Chicken Kebabs with Buckwheat Salad [GF DF EF NF]This is a quick and easy meal for the summer evenings, especially if you have a BBQ - however, don't let it stop you if you don't have one (we currently don't have a BBQ). The buckwheat adds a bit of a twist to the traditional lettuce salad and a bit of texture with a slight crunch to it!
