Midweek meal planner #1

Instead of introducing my weekly veg box with a selection of recipes that I don’t get round to cooking, I’ve decided to turn this column into a weekly meal planner instead. Housewife-tastic.

In the box this week:
beetroot, kale, broccoli, carrots, vine tomatoes, red pepper, marfona potatoes
apples, clementines, bananas

In the fridge:
green peppers, celery, grapefruit, walnuts, oregano

From the butcher:
1 pheasant
1 free range chicken

Wednesday:
Pheasant and lentil casserole with beetroot and potatoes

Thursday:
Pheasant and lentil leftovers
Roasted beet and carrot
Butterbean and caramelised onion mash

Friday:
Kale and chickpeas* with Moro tahini chicken
*Adapted from the spinach and chickpea tapa in Moro The Cookbook – there is a version online at Smitten Kitchen who incidentally, often appears to feature recipes that I have in mind.

Saturday:
Lunch: Roasted pepper, leftover chickpea and chorizo soup
I told you I wasn’t a fan of green peppers last week, so it’s no surprise I have two left in the fridge. Between now and Saturday I might try this trick to see if I can turn those green peppers red.
Dinner: Pizza with tomato and basil salad

Sunday:
Roast chicken with broccoli and roast winter veg

Monday:
Risotto made with fresh stock and leftover roast

Tuesday:
Store cupboard pasta, puttanesca?

Possibly:
Moro beetroot soup with black cumin p. 72
Preserved lemons for gifts
Sourdough bread with the starter I began last Saturday
Rice pudding
