Crikey. Its March at the end of the week. 2013 needs to slow down. Last week whizzed past and thankfully internet access has once again been fully restored to the Foodie Quine household. However did we cope in the olden days?! Managed to almost stick to the meal plan this week. Used up some leftovers and bits languishing at the bottom of the freezer and tried out some new dishes too.
|Trout smeared with Coriander Paste wrapped in Prosciutto|
|Baked Pappardelle with Pancetta & Porcini|
The coriander paste was great addition to oven baked fish and Simon Hopkinsons pasta dish was divine. Infusing the hot milk with the dried mushrooms made a huge impact on the flavour of the sauce. Such a good hearty dish.
|Sausage & Spelt Casserole|
I've blogged the full story of the Spelt and Sausage Casserole here. An edible Duffle Coat of Spelt from Nigel. A failure for Supermarkets but success with shopping local. The Butternut Squash Ravioli never got made as I had no 00 flour so it's bumped to this week in its place we had burgers and chips. But neigh horse burgers here. Chilli Gordonian Steak Burgers from Andrew Gordon Butchery. Awesome.And so to this week... #mealplanningmonday
Monday - Stovies, Beetroot and Oatcakes
Made with leftover slow cooked brisket from the Sunday Roast
Tuesday - Pizzata
A cross between a frittata and a pizza
Wednesday - Macaroni Cheese
Special request from girl to include pepperoni, ham and sweetcorn (and probably some other things which she will pick out)
Thursday - Potato Pie with Spinach and Mushrooms
This is a recipe I've had and loved for years. I'm pretty sure that it came from the original Food & Drink TV Programme back in the 80's. Its somewhat like a quiche but uses potato rather than pastry for the base.
Friday - Hairy Bikers Butternut Squash Ravioli
Bumped from last week I've ensured that 00 flour is on this weeks shopping list so this will finally be made.
Saturday - Fish Goujons with Panko Breadcrumbs and Crash Hot Potatoes
Sunday - Pork Belly and Beans
At Home with Mrs M is the place to go to check out all this weeks #mealplanningmonday shenanigans.
This week also heralds the start of Fair Trade Fortnight. I've got lots of Fair Trade goodies in my storecupboard to make use of and have a few ideas up my sleeve of how to #gofurther for Fair Trade. I'm also going to be helping organise a Fair Trade Bake Off at boy and girl's school. At least any soggy bottoms will have been traded fairly.
