A Simple Christmas - the main meal

Our chickens look out over our garden - they are essential food waste cyclers in our household. The kids eat so many eggs, and we always have spare leafy greens in the garden, and often leftovers.

In keeping with my desire to keep the Christmas party at our house a simple and enjoyable day where the focus is spending quality time with my family, I have another idea that will keep the main meal super simple.

There are lots of different food needs amongst our small extended family group - one is dairy free, another gluten free and me, vegetarian.  What one meal can deliciously and simply cater for all these needs?

The Solution.... the kids and I call it Eggy bake. 

Here's the plan for Christmas lunch...

Oregano along the terrace wall - I harvest leaves from this plant a daily for a wide range of dishes.
It's always a good idea to have your favourite and high use herbs close and handy.
While the eggy bake is cooking we can go out and harvest the salad greens and tomatoes, and herbs for our salad dressing.

This whole process should take only 40 minutes, but will be a really fun activity for us all to do together.

This is a truly fresh Christmas lunch - we will harvest the eggs and greens immediately before the lunch is prepared.
