When we are cooking the months main meals in advance, it is all hands on deck. Here are Madeline and Christopher helping with the washing up.
Today I prepared the Chicken Schnitzels, meatloaf and stew. I decided to take photos of the chicken schnitzel prep for Lisa.
put flour and breadcrumbs on a piece of greaseproof paper and some egg and milk in a bowl.
Place a chicken fillet in the flour first.
Next in the milk and egg.
finally in the breadcrumbs.
Now for the wrapping:
Place a piece of baking paper over a sheet of alfoil.
Place two schnitzels on sheet and wrap.
Wrap them up and freeze.
When you want to cook them, take them out of the freezer and defrost for 24 hours in the fridge.
Place in oven at 180 for 30-35 minutes. Check that the fillets are cooked the whole way though. Sometimes they take a bit longer especially if they are thick.
We eat them with salad on rolls and I think they are one of my favourite meals for the month.
I make our stew with kangaroo fillet. Here is a picture of kangaroo fillet. It is very lean.
For our stew, I cut up the kangaroo fillets and a mixture of vegetables. I freeze them in a plastic container all together.
When we eat them, I get them out of the freezer and in the fridge for 24 hours. I put them in the crock pot with a tin of tomato sauce, a packet of French onion soup and a tin of diced tomatoes. This is cooked on high for 5 hours.
