Hope you all had a good week and enjoyed the extra “you” time now the kids are back at school – just a shame about the awful weather we’re having. It’s been like living in pea soup all week – yuk!
I was so happy to hear many of you decided to make my all time favourite meal, Paolozzi Meat Sauce. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I do!
For next week’s meal plan I’ve the following suggestions:
Monday: For Meat Free Monday we often have Tagliatelle with Spinach Mascarpone and Parmesan – quick, easy and a great way of getting spinach into the kids. Just to say, I often make this dish using half creme fraiche and half mascarpone, I’ve also made it using just creme fraiche or a mix of creme fraiche and cream – all taste good as long as there is plenty of Parmesan cheese.
Thursday: No fuss Shepherd’s Pie – comfort food which will keep everyone happy.
Friday: Honey Soy Glazed Pork Tenderloin – doesn’t this look great? Pork tenderloin is an easy cut to get hold of, I use it often, mainly to make stroganoff or saltimbocca.
Saturday: Happy St. George’s Day! In honour of St. George (the patron saint of England) I’ll be cooking Toad in the Hole, a perfectly traditional, English dish, to honour our brave saint. Don’t worry, no roasting of amphibians involved in this dish, just plain old sausages cooked in batter! Serve with vegetables and onion gravy.
Did you know, St. George is also the patron saint of soldiers, cavalry and chivalry; of farmers and field workers, boy scouts and butchers; of horses, riders and saddlers; and of sufferers from leprosy, plague and syphilis?
May I suggest a traditional english dessert for this special day – Spotted Dick anyone?!
Weekend Treats: How about a classic, English Victoria Sponge Cake for a weekend afternoon treat?
So tell me, did you make anything from last week’s meal plan?
Would love to hear your feedback.
Enjoy your week!
