Meal Planning Monday
Another day, another dollar. Joining in At Home with Mrs M.
Monday; Quick noodle stir fry. Probably a beef stir fry with a soy sauce coating and plenty of quickly fried vegetables.
Tuesday; Pasta Bolognese. I made a large pot and froze a portion for a night when coming in and going out were too close together to do anything exciting. Tonight's the night! Wish me luck at Number 2's parent consultation evening. I'm hoping for a reasonable report. Please.
Wednesday; Chilli pot with potato wedges. I like to put some chorizo in as well as kidney beans. Nigella says to put dark chocolate in as well....
Thursday; Cowboy Casserole. That's sausages in a tomato sauce baked beneath a layer of cheesy mash to you and me. We eat sausages probably once a week, so I am always after a different way to serve them. This was an intriguing idea that I'm giving a go. If it's really good it might become a regular feature.
Friday; Hung Shao Pork. Hung Shao Pork is one of those meals you pick up and don't put down. Granted it takes 90 minutes of cooking to turn pork belly into an unctuous melting assemblage, but it is well worth it, and that's 90 minutes cooking mostly unwatched so it's not the most taxing thing to do. It comes from Delia Smith's Winter Collection from the early 90's.
Saturday; Meal at Ma's or Ma for tea?
Sunday; Roast pork with Aldi's potato gratin. Easy and so good on a cold January night.
