Last week's attempt at a Jamie's 30 Minute Meal in 30 minutes was a great success, much to my surprise! Not quite a 30 minute meal, as he cooked potatoes in the microwave and I don't have one, so cooking them took a little longer, but a real reminder of how much flavour you can pack into a meal with relatively little effort if you have a good supply of fresh herbs in the garden. I'll be trying more - and I might remember to take photos next time!
This week's meals look something like this
Monday chicken satay with gado gado and fragrant rice
Tuesday Mark is cooking. I don't know exactly what but it will involve a butterflied leg of lamb and some flageolet or cannellini beans
Wednesday a sort-of paella but with chorizo and no fish or seafood. And no broad beans. Perhaps I should just call it Spanish Rice.
Thursday Something involving cabbage and eggs. Either a cabbage koulibac from a recipe in my dog eared copy of Jocasta Innes's Pauper's Cookbook or a gratin-y thing with cheese sauce
Friday Roast partridge with whatever veg need using up
Saturday and Sunday - Saturday's our local Farmer's Market day so we'll make our weekend plans according to what we buy. I suspect we'll push the boat out a bit as our local monthly market is closing soon, the December one will be the last ever. It doesn't get much local support, I think it's because it's held a couple of miles out of the town centre so people don't realise it's there.
