Meal Planning Monday 18 February

First of all, a little flash back to last week. I was making curried turkey sausages on Monday. I just want to warn you.... if anyone offers you curried turkey sausages, walk slowly away. Rather than disguise the nasty grey lumps of sausage, the contrast with the lovely spicy sauce just served to emphasise it.  However the Flamiche was rather more successful!

The promised stewing beef in the meat box turned out to be pork, so Mark made a sort-of Cape Malay curry with it.

Right, on to this week. Plans may well change as although the four weekly  meat boxes I won have finished,  I am half-expecting a delivery of one from somewhere else but I have no idea when it will arrive or what will be in it. But at the moment the plan is:

Monday Cottage Pie made with the left over beef from yesterday's roast.

Tuesday Papardelle with dolcelatte, purple sprouting broccoli and walnuts. The recipe is in the latest issue of Delicious magazine and the PSB is the first from the garden this year.

Wednesday Sausages with lentils and parsnips  an old favourite of ours from a Good Housekeeping recipe book

Thursday Cauliflower cheese

Friday I mentioned last week that we don't do Valentine's Day. That's because the year we got engaged, lots of our friends did too and all chose February 14th to announce it. So we waited until the 21st so we could have a day all of our own. And it's been our "special day" ever since. But this  year because of Mark's working pattern this week we've moved it to Friday, just a day late. We're planning to cook a special meal at home - but it's OURS so I'm not sharing it!

Weekend it's the Farmer's Market in Fleet so I haven't yet planned anything for the weekend - we'll see what looks good and then make a meal each from whatever we buy.

Why not pop over to At Home With Mrs M and share your meal plan or get inspiration from some of the others you'll find there?


  1. I've just found our local farmers market so next week I'll be doing the same as you at the weekend! Enjoy your special meal on Friday.x

  2. Have a lovely meal on Friday!!
    Great meal plan :)
