Meal planner #5

Again I stuck to the plan pretty well last week and only succumbed to the temptation of an extra trip to the supermarket on Tuesday to buy smoked haddock for tea, and some half-price smoked salmon to save for Christmas. After two vegetarian dinners, Mr was asking where the meat had gone. I didn’t make carrot and coriander soup as planned, but I did knock up a chunky vegetable and lentil soup which we had for dinner on Sunday, and lunch on Monday and Tuesday. I also baked some apple bread, and I was pleased with the Danish butter biscuits I bought in Aldi because they came in this gorgeous tin and only cost £1.59.


In the box this week:
Carrots, celery, savoy cabbage, 2 small pumpkins, tomatoes, radishes, clementines, apples, bananas

In the fridge:
½ celeriac, 1 leek, 3 oranges, 2 apples, 2 lemons

Meat and fish:
½ salmon side (from frozen), 900g pork shoulder, sausagemeat, prawns (from frozen)

Wednesday: + Brook and San
Dinner: Pan-fried salmon fillet with celeriac and potato gratin, the Garden of Eating Blog has a nice recipe but I could only get single cream and half-fat crème fraiche in the corner shop so I’m going to ad lib with that.
