Simple Tender Calamari and What are your Addictions?

 A quick midweek post that comes as a confession.
I LOVE Calamari (deep fried squid rings)!
They are my downfall! Could eat them all day non-stop.

Vanilla and Cinnamon Creamy Rice Pudding or Arroz Doce

As I said in my previous post, the only thing Alex hates is rice but, strangely enough he loves Rice Pudding!
Whenever I make it, he has 2/3 helpings within minutes and can never have enough of it!

My recipe for Rice Pudding is slightly different from the traditional one.
I make it the Portuguese way, and that means a lot of cinnamon.

Creamy Tuna and Tomato Pasta Bake or Pasta Con Tonno Al Forno

All kids are picky eaters!
Even Alex. He hates rice for starters, he will eat it but, still winge, moan and groan at every mouthful!
Rice aside, he eats everything I give him.

Pasta with Italian Sausage and Garden Peas

There is something about sausage and peas that just makes me want to eat it.
Take a nice good quality savoury pork sausage and pair it up with some gorgeous sweet peas...what could possibly go wrong??

Winter Roasted Vegetables Lasagna

I am always paranoid about vegetables. Ok, let me rephrase that, I am always paranoid about not eating enough vegetables.
Or rather, I am always paranoid about ALEX not eating enough vegetables!
