Last week was a great success - it's taken over 6 months, but at last I'm sufficiently recovered from last summer's e.coli to feel enthusiastic about cooking and eating again. Apart from the weekend, when, as I expected, Mark cooked one night, we stuck to the plan. The roast goose was the meal that got left out - easy to postpone as it's in the freezer - and Mark made a delicious Cape Malay style curry on Saturday, with the Rainbow Salad being shuffled over to Sunday. Here's a look at what our week's meals looked like:
Now on to this week:
Monday and Tuesday a little bit vague at the moment as I'm off to the Chinese cash & carry this morning, so it will depend on what looks fresh and tasty. I'll buy enough veg for two meals, and it will probably be something along the lines of a chicken stir fry on Monday and Beef Rendang on Tuesday.
Wednesday this cold weather makes me yearn for macaroni cheese, which we'll have with baked tomatoes and Brussels Sprouts. I have some sprouts-on-a-stick this week which always seem to keep well and produce a huge amount of sprouts.
Thursday Corned beef scone with sprouts and carrots - more cold weather comfort food!
Friday Roast goose breast with braised red cabbage and apple and roast home grown parsnips. If there are any sprouts left, sprouts and chestnuts with it.
Saturday and Sunday I expect Mark will cook one night. Chilli con carne with brown rice, or possibly with some corn bread waffles that I spotted on Pinterest, the other night.
