We're off to France for the weekend and I'm trying to clear the fridge before we go, so I'm not really planning this week, it will just be a list of "possible" meals as stocks dwindle!
First of all a bit of feedback on last week. The Panda Express Orange Chicken was delicious, definitely one to make again in future. Although I'd forgotten just how much further meat goes when it is battered, so I made far too much! We weren't keen on the red goulash, it seemed all too "worthy" and didn't have an appealing flavour or texture.
I completely forgot that I'd planned to do a curry with the squash and made it into a risotto instead, but as that's one of our all time favourites neither of us minded! The Chilli Con Carne with Cornbread Topping is another old favourite, and I made double quantity of the chilli, so we're having the rest tonight. I'll blog the recipe for the version with topping later this week (or next week - I'm totally time impoverished at the moment which is why this blog's been a bit quiet)
On Saturday Mark made one of his Ottolenghi-inspired creations and on Sunday I made a pear, cheese and pecan tart which is to be my Random Recipe when I get chance to write about it.
So here goes with the meal plan:
Monday Chilli Con Carne with baked potatoes and broccoli
Tuesday Roast lamb with Dauphinoise of potato and celeriac, roast butternut squash and cavolo nero
Wednesday smoked sausage ring with red cabbage, potato cakes and carrots
Thursday whatever's left in the fridge - probably a cheese omelette with chips and salad
If I manage a meal plan next week it will be on Tuesday, not Monday - see you then! In the meantime why not pop over to At Home With Mrs M for some more ideas?
