Some Hae Meat and Canna Eat

And so its #mealplanningmonday once more. January is speeding past. Last week's meal plan with the Hairy Dieters was a great success and everything was made on every day exactly as planned. Not often that happens. Really loved the Cassoulet but would do it in the slow cooker next time, ideal comfort food. The biggest hit of the week was the Spanish Style Chicken Bake. Fantastic flavours and super easy to make. Weight loss was 1lb this week pleasantly surprised at that as the cakes and bakes from Pinnies and Petticoats would not have helped. 
Our Special Cassoulet
Salmon with Chilli and Ginger Sauce
Minestrone Soup
Spanish Style Chicken Bake
This week does of course contain Burns Night (25th January) so Haggis is obviously on the menu. I've kept with the Hairy Dieters for the rest of the week as really want to give the book a good trial and have included two dishes that have been recommended to me to try (the cod and the paprika chicken) Anyone else got any Hairy Dieters recommendations?


Monday - Paprika Chicken
Romanian style chicken, tomato and pepper casserole. Going to do this one in the Slow Cooker.



Wednesday - Roasted Cod with Parma Ham and Peppers
The bikers certainly seem to like peppers. This is an oven tray bake on a base of roasted veg topped with cheesy breadcrumbs and a drizzle of balsamic. 

Thursday - We're out at a Burns Supper and have already pre-chosen from the menu. I've avoided Haggis as will have it on Friday.

Lobster Ravioli Thermidore topped with Grilled Langoustine and Herb Butter
Grilled Seabass Fillet with Crab Risotto, Tempura King Prawn, Clam and Saffron Bisque
Raspberry and Drambuie Trifle 

Burns Night - Haggis, Whisky Neeps and Tatties

Saturday - Chicken and Ham Tangle Pie
Chicken, ham and leek in a creme fraiche sauce topped with a tangle of filo pastry 



Do check out other bloggers meal plans for this week. I'm hoping there will be lots of haggis included and don't forget to say grace.

Some hae meat and canna eat, 
And some wad eat that want it; 
But we hae meat, and we can eat, 
Sae let the Lord be thankit.
