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.
Used: celeriac, leek, potato, salmon, citrus fruit for mull
Lunch: Minestrone soup
Used: cabbage, carrot, celery, bacon, tomato
Lunch: Out with friends
Dinner: Roast pumpkin risotto or a variation on this Squash Tart with some of the puff pastry I bought to make Sunday’s sausage rolls.
Dinner: Pork in cider, I always go with Delia on this one!
Sunday: Babies’ joint birthday party
Sausage rolls: meat and veggie
Cakes: I fancy this Carrot Cake by Eric Lanlard, I also like the idea of these Oaty Banana Muffins with Nutella, but I think I might go for this Pumpkin and Raisin Tea Loaf which has a low fat and sugar content for the kids, and a rich ginger cake for the grown-ups.
Dinner: Leftover pork in cider
Dinner: Green lentil, butter bean and mustard stew with coleslaw
Use: carrot, cabbage, onion
Dinner: Prawn and coconut curry with roti
Use: Frozen prawns, coconut milk
