mini omelette with tasty basil pesto layers :)

This is a very easy tasty lunch to make for the more healthier enthusiast which does not like to eat starch and bread all that much , like my husband , this is a recipe I made especially for him , and it is so tasty

two egg mini omelette with layers of basil pesto, if you want the recipe do ask , easy peasy to make and layers of lean ham and of course an always winner  cherry tomatoes :) you can make the layers as a stack with more layers , but this was just a smallish lunch :)

I would say for bread lovers this would go very well with some rye bread that was toasted :)

mash potatoes which is yummylicious

Try adding 1/2 teaspoon baking powder to the potatoes, milk, and butter. Let it sit a few minutes before serving. 
sometimes if I have a lot of people I cook for I add a whole teaspoon , and then mix and then put it in the microwave for a minute and it is so fluffy and nom nom 

my friend Teresa Goddard tried this and she said she will never make it any other way , she is one of my biggest supporters :) 

Basil Pesto potatoes

This is so yummy I just had to share this recipe , nom nom potatoes

fresh basil pesto
if you do not know how to make this , please see my blog , recipe is on here too

par boil potatoes but do keep the skin on and slice in thin but not to thin slices , the skin is so much tastier in this recipe and it really is good for you and no mess no fuss .

then put them in a oven proof dish that was rubbed with butter

Add the pesto over the potatoes and then add the pesto sauce and then the parmesan and then the depitted olives and add little knobs of butter inbetween as well , salt and pepper to taste .

grate a little bit of fat free Edam cheese or any chedder over the top and then bake in the oven till it looks okay to eat 
this is when it comes out of the oven , oh my it was so yummy 

I made chicken breasts with it with a green salad , was so good and the onions is baby pickled onions which I just soaked in a bit of white vinegar and salt after I cut them into thin slices and circles , after a while they are so good with this plate of food as they taste just like pickled onions , oh my , tasty 

thank you for visiting my blog , I also want to thank my loving friend Teresa Goddard for being an inspiration for my cooking blog as well as she follows it to a tee , thank you my friend for your love and support always x
