Wow this is my first post in 2014! Christmas and the New Year flew by, we had fabulous Christmas meals with assorted family over Christmas and Boxing day, then a lovely week with more family in Devon and saw in the New Year with them, and a glass of bubbly admiring the fireworks on tv (and Gary Barlow!) and now slowly easing back into our normal sort of routines! I am sadly back to work and during my time off decided I could easily become a lady of leisure but doubt that will ever really happen but its a nice thought!
This was one of favourite photo's taken from Shaldon, shortly before we stopped in a cosy little pub for a pint! It was freezing outside so was lovely to take refuge beside a toasty open fire!
The meal plan for this week begun on Friday night when jotting down ideas and I had nearly finalised it by yesterday morning until I realised tomatoes were in it virtually every day...I don't know for certain but I have read before about them being not very inflamation friendly vegetables, and what with having bad knee's not to mention a few other body issues decided to re-jig it around somewhat and move some dishes onto the following weeks plans.
So this is the plan, though as always subject to change - I am now onto night shifts but also have a few days off after to recover which is always nice! I picked up four jars of mincemeat for 10p each earlier so plan a little baking later this week as the cake tin is empty, how terrible!!
Monday - Salmon with new potatoes and creamed leeks
Tuesday - Aubergine Parmigiana, courgette fritti
Wednesday - Creamy sweet potato and bacon spaghetti
Thursday - Beef kofta curry and rice, veg jalfrezi, saag aloo
Friday - Pizza! We have a voucher..
Saturday - Turkey and leek risotto
Sunday - Spicy Goan prawns with rice
Have a great week everyone, I hope you are all safe from the floods!
