Just back from the most awesome weekend. We were Glamping in a Gypsy Caravan close to Stirling in the shadow of the Wallace Monument. Had a fantastic time and caught up with some friends from our Uni days. A couple of photos below and a blog post to follow. Lots more pics on my Facebook page. Can't recommend Bramble Bield highly enough.
This #mealplanningmonday has been hurriedly thrown together whilst I juggle with unpacking, washing and an online shop. I never really caught up with myself last week after the kids being off for the May Holiday.
Last week was all about wild garlic. We spent the Monday holiday foraging for it and making Wild Garlic Pesto. It featured heavily in meals last week and will continue to do so. I have enough to feed the 5,000 and a little goes a long way. Powerful stuff. Anyone want some?
The gammon finally got roasted and was served up with mustard sauce and wild garlic pesto mash. The Tomato Gnocchi Gratin was accompanied by wild garlic pesto pinwheels. The combination of the bread and the act of cooking toned down the powerful flavour and they were delicious.
The salmon with Maple Syrup and Grainy Mustard was BBQ'd wrapped in wild garlic. No escape either for the giant brisket hot dog sausages served with wild garlic pesto pasta salad. No vampires to be found anywhere near the Foodie Quine household last week.
And so to this weeks #mealplanningmonday and another busy week ahead
