This was a delicious dinner of turkey steaks with mushroom gravy, steamed vegetables (broccoli and green beans) and roasted vegetables (butternut pumpkin, potato, sweet potato, onions and carrots).
We cheated on the gravy and used a packet one – I believe this was a Gravox mushroom gravy. I’ve tasted some surprisingly tasty packet gravies, but sadly, this wasn’t one of them (that’ll teach us! :-P). Although the gravy was a let-down, the turkey and vegetables were fantastic.
For dessert, I had a serve of trifle Jac made, with extra thick custard (the custard is always super thick when Jac makes it :)), tinned two fruit (pear and peach), and lots of fresh whipped cream.
For bento the next day, I packed salad greens with marinated mushrooms and leftover roasted vegetables, and a couple of slices of honey-roasted ham, rolled up and skewered with animal food picks. In the green birdy container there’s aioli, which I ate with the roasted vegies and salad.
I ate this lunch cold. I just love cold roasted vegetables.
