All of us at Game Farm know how hard it can be to pre-plan all elements of your coming week, including work and family commitments, social activities and exercise, as well as food and money for the week.
However, planning ahead for what you are going to eat each night can relieve a lot of after work stress and help to organise your week. If you plan delicious meals, it will also give you something to look forward to each day!
We want to help make this coming week easier, and as tasty as possible, so why not try our Country Cornfed Chicken Pot Pies? It’s a simple and delicious recipe that you can prepare in individual servings in under an hour.
So, this weekend take a deep breath, work out what you have coming up in the next few days, plan your meals and then… relax!
Last weekend Game Farm partnered up with Grand Sud Wines and created a food and wine experience for the guests.
As part of this exciting partnership, Kim Terakes (Boys Can Cook, Great Aussie BBQ Cookbook and AussieBarbie.com.au) cooked with Quail Breast Fillets in a number of different recipes.
One recipe he cooked over the weekend was Pan Fried Quail Breasts in White Wine and Rosemary. This is a delicious recipe and a great dinner to share with friends and family.
Stay tuned for another exciting Quail Breast Fillet recipe from Kim next week!
The bribing, pleading and even tantrums that come with picky little eaters are enough to make everyone in the house fear mealtime.
So what’s a parent to do? We want to hear your top tips for creating kid friendly mealtimes. The ten best tips will receive one of our Game Farm Recipe Books. Simply share your tip in the comments section at the end of this post.
There are the common stories of disguising food as other food, dying vegetables to take away the green look and even blending everything so no ingredients can be seen! However, we think there are some easier ways to get your kids involved in the kitchen and excited about different flavours. Here are our suggestions:
Make meal time a no pressure zone: Parents can’t always be responsible for what their children eat, but they can decide on the when, where, and what. Let your children know you are in charge of what is served, but it’s up to them on how much they choose to eat. This no pressure atmosphere should increase the likelihood that kids will eat a wide variety of foods when they are picking at their plate.
Make food familiar and eat it yourself: A good way to encourage children to try new foods is repeated exposure and role modelling. The more often a kid sees an ingredient, the more likely it is they will eventually eat it. Eat as a family as much as you can. When parents are eating a food, the odds that the child will too go up.
Get them involved: I am sure you have heard that having a child prepare a meal is a good way to encourage eating. At Game Farm we think our Quail & Feta Pizza is the perfect combination of fun and delicious to make with kids.
Don’t make it all about getting them to eat, instead focus on the fact that you are teaching them something incredibly valuable; how to cook! Have them pick out the cheese, sauce, meat, greens and even have them help with food preparation and talk about how the food tastes.
Who knows, one day they could eventually end up making you dinner!
