Menu – 14 September 2016

Foolishly, I planned this week’s menu last week when I had lots of ideas (cravings) but already filled my list. This was before I realised it would be 30 degrees and that I would have little inclination to move, let alone cook 🙁

  • Chicken liver bunny-chow w/ mashed cauliflower
  • Coq au Vin with braised red cabbage
  • Wings & Ribs
  • Cod, chorizo, tomato and aioli on greens
  • Lamb curry with roast cauliflower
  • Steak, parsnip chips and blue cheese sauce
  • Bubble & squeak with York ham and eggs

Also knocked up two batches of soup (Broccoli & Stilton and a chunky Pesto & Root Veg)

Reset time!

After a too-short visit to South Africa (with quite a bit of over-indulgence and a LOT of great wines) time to get back on track.  Got a whole week of tasty meals planned, with minimal cooking effort required, so should have no excuses for extra snacks or trips to the pub!

  • Chicken liver bunny-chow
  • Roast belly pork with red cabbage, apple, pistachio & blue cheese salad
  • Sauerkraut & belly pork leftovers
