Meal Planning Monday 27th January 2014

Last week was all about the haggis. Do catch up on my Burns blogs if you missed them. Countdown to Burns Night and #InspiredByBurns. A couple of amendments to last weeks meal plan due to last minute changes of plans. and a couple of dishes bumped to this week. On Wednesday night Foodie Loon was out for an impromptu Curry and girl was on a playdate so boy made sushi for us both. He was rightly proud of his efforts.
The Lemon Sole Meuniere didn't go quite to plan as no capers to be found in the fridge.  Still tasted good. Nigella's Pea & Pancetta Pasta Risotto is unbelievably quick and so tasty. Give Orzo a go in a risotto, you won't be dissapointed. Lamb and Apricot Pilaf was great. I sometimes forget how much I love lamb steak. Sunday nights tea was takeway Fish & Chips, perfect for any fragile feelings after Burns Night.
Our Burns Night soiree on Saturday night was great fun. I'll let the pictures tell the story. A braw time indeed was had.

Only three days of meal planning this week. We are at a Burns Supper on Thursday night and then I'm heading to Kingussie for the Food on Film Festival. Foodie Loon and the kids will have to fend for themselves.
