Lunch
Wholemeal sunflower seeds cracker sandwich biscuits with cheese and tomatoes
latte (hubby came home for lunch so we had one together)

Afternoon snack
nuts and fruit mix (on my way to kinda & school pick up)
a piece of lamington cake from the kids
herbal tea (had a quick play date at a girlfriends place)

Dinner
Bean & chickpea wholemeal burger served with polenta & parmesan fries

Polenta and parmesan fries


All I did with the bean mix was place 2 cans (1 chickpea, the other cannelini white beans) chopped onions, tomato, capsicum, bacon and spices gently fried with olive oil. Added worcestershire sauce, a drizzle of maple and then added water until it became nice and thick.

The polenta you cook as per packet instructions, I load it with parmesan cheese and season it accordingly. Allow to cool and set. See above 3rd and 4th pic, I just sliced into thick fries. Then oven bake or if short for time which I was tonight, I just grilled them. My husband even loves these as he's not a real huge fan of polenta, even though it's been a pantry staple my whole life.
