Meal planner #4

I kept quite closely to last week’s plan. My daughter loved the winter veg soup I made for tea on Monday, with equal quantities of turnip, swede and carrot, a large onion, and a good helping of fresh thyme and oregano. Nigel Slater’s Sausage and Jerusalem artichoke casserole was tasty. I added dried porcini because I was short of fresh mushrooms, this added a nice richness but I should have removed the lemons before keeping for the next day because the leftovers tasted bitter.

Felicity Cloake’s banana loaf baked beautifully, but I found the recipe overly sweet. Next time I’ll try substituting soft brown sugar with regular unrefined sugar to see if that helps. I was tempted by the Waitrose 50% off Scottish salmon sides (which works out about £1 a portion), so we had pan-fried salmon on Tuesday with a winter salad of carrot, turnip and walnut and sauteed potato, a nice meal that could certainly be poshed-up.
