Summer Menu Planner

Its taken a while, but the Summer Menu Planner has arrived (just in time for the late summer heat)…

Its no secret that I love food – i’m always in search of new recipes, enjoy reading the latest foodie magazines and daresay my cookbook collection is somewhat larger than average.

Check out Katie’s version, complete with homemade Balsamic Beetroot Relish and Roasted Truss Tomato Ketchup if you’re feeling enthusiastic!

For us, its the perfect relaxed Summer family meal…yum!
