Family cook off #2

It's close, both boys have outdone themselves !!!
Last night Buzzy took technique to a whole new level. He marinated, grilled on the BBQ, fried on the stove, and cooked in the saucepan!

Dinner: Lemongrass chicken with rice and salad
Dessert: massive servings of caramelised dumplings

 They better not get used to fizzy drink at dinner time.

 OH&S was questionable….

What he lacked in presentation, he made up in flavour. 

Pop joined us for dinner and a truck load of dumplings.

We finished off the night (complementary of Buzzy's $30 budget)
with even more sweets for the final Origin match. With two kids born in NSW and two in QLD, we were split even.

Whilst the Maroons won last nights game, they lost the last two, seeing the Blues take home the series!

And as my eloquent brother in law would say, we were 'as full as a fat lady's sock' (or 'a 24 hr colostomy bag')

Well done fellas,
I hope your future wives appreciate my training!

  1. Ha! You crack me up! I would love to sit and have a meal with your crew!! Your son rocked it!!! Just look at his meal! My goodness does it just sound delicious! And yep the future wives owe you big time!! I just love this! And I can tell your pop did too!! Happy day to ya friend!!! Nic xoxo

  2. Wow, well done Buzz. A big more complicated, impressive. Was impressed with the maturity of no 'face in the plate' but missed my belly laughter moment;) So score, score??

  3. Yum! The question is, did he clean up the mess?!

  4. Caramel Dumplings are a winter favourite in these parts, though I'm not sure even my ever-hungry crew could follow them up with iced donuts!

  5. That is so cool. Future masterchef there hun? ;) xx

  6. Love this idea and post. My boys just turned 8 and I have taught them a few culinary skills - inspired to start cookoffs now.

  7. Ohhhh, I want an invite next time your handsome chap cooks, everything looks so delicious and heaps of fun xoxo
