The Coochie "KIOSK" .
For Fruit and Veg...

They are usually open Wednesdays and weekends.
Anyway back to business!!
Here are some menu ideas and "food" to consider bringing....
Why not spoil yourself with some really simple ,
yet delicious treats while you are on holiday....
Try something totally new!! Give you and your taste buds a memorable experience....like....
munching on pan fried brains
encrusted with macadamia nuts!!
You will LOVE them!!!
Or stick with a few easy favourites,
like boiled babypotatos with fresh salmon fillets, to grillon the barbie!!
thick slices of honey baked ham, succulent spinach or silverbeet
and big juicy mushrooms to enjoy with your freshly poached or fried eggs!!
You could also buy some "easy" pancake mix or fresh waffles to toast for brekky or dessert!
Consider bringing these ingredients for a mouth watering topping!!
Strawberries blueberries and bananas marinated in maple syrup, orange juice with hot butter and a splash of
cointreau with fresh mascarpone.
Bring along some ooey gooey stinky cheeses, quince paste, fresh figs, fruit, bikkies and dips as well as some good ol' "cheezles" and "chips" for the kids
Please remember basic condiments and spreads like... salt and peppersauces
jams and Mum...,
don't forget the vegemite!!
If you don't feel like cooking and would like a break, why not just bring easy pre-made fresh or frozen meals, like lasagne or an assortment of pre- packed TV dinners and enjoy them with a quick and easy fresh garden salad!. 79cent noodles won't hurt the kids once in a while either! You can add a little tin of tuna or an egg on top for added protein!
Make it easy for yourself MUM!!
