Summer tomatoes

I'm still working on my package for the Celebrate Summer Swap. It is almost finished...But as my sweet Kids want to add some summer creations of their own too. This means it won't be ready to ship tomorrow. And as the 20th of june actually was our deadline, I'm in doubt...
On the other hand I guess my swapping partner won't mind finding some extra surprises. Do you, Kelly?
To compensate I'll give you a look at our favorite summer recipe. This is a simple recipe, ideal for a quick lunch or at a cosy picnic party on a lazy, hot summer day.

Into summer...

Have you noticed? Hint: take a look on top...
I spent a little time creating a new -summer- banner for this blog.
What do you think?

It's created with the Tropical Punch kit from DesignbyDani.

Still 3 weeks untill summer holidays...

On the menu...

Doesn't every parent loves to see his/her children eat vegetables?
No big problems here with veggies and my kids but here is a real favorite:
Dish of Minced Meat with Mashed Carrots

for 4 persons:
1 kg carrots
1 kg potatoes
nutmeg, majoram

Peel and cube potatoes and carrots.
-kids love to help on this one, and gobble up the little dices-
Boil in the bouillon till the potatoes and carrots turn tender.
Mash the vegetables, with milk, pepper, salt, nutmeg and majoram.
You can add a little sugar.

750g minced meat
1 sliced onion

Heat oil and fry the onion and minced meat. Braise for ca. 10 minutes.

As an adult I enjoy when food looks beautiful on my plate.
Even for an easy and simple recipe as this one!
So remove and place in an oven dish.
Heat some minutes in the oven.

I'm curious, what's your home success recipe with vegetables?
I would like to try it out!
