Monster cheese

Thanks to a competition win on The Shopping Sherpa's blog, a rather large amount of cheese appeared on my back door step early one morning last week. Since then I've been making the most of my stay-at-home status, and have been cooking and eating up a storm, trying to use all this up.

This is my favourite breakfast. I'm not a huge fan of fruit for breakfast as it upsets my stomach, but this is a winner in my book. It's banana, ricotta, cinnamon and honey on seed bread. Yum.


I've become the mini quiche queen. Since my brother shared his recipe with me a few years ago, I've made these a lot. But recently I made a big batch and froze them for later use. Why had I never thought of this before? In less than an hour I can make a variety of quiches using up leftover smallgoods and vegetables, and they can keep us in lunches and dinners for quite some time.

Spinach, Feta and Parmesan mini quiches

These ones are spinach, feta and parmesan. But caramelised spring onion, bacon and parmesan is another favourite.

Speaking of which, it's time for lunch. The spinach is steaming and the puff pastry is thawing. I'm off to bake some more!
