Meal Planning Monday 5

So, meal planning. I had every intention of getting online to do a shop on Sunday, but to be honest I was feeling a bit…Sundayish. Which feeling has lingered through Monday and on to Tuesday. Perhaps it is the fact that the sunshine has disappeared. Or perhaps I’m beginning to get pre-wedding jitters. I’ll be sauntering down the aisle exactly four months today, and I have only just reached the stage of thinking, “I really should make a list or something….” Really, I shouldn’t be allowed to be in charge of organising so much as a trip to the pub, let alone a wedding.

All of which is entirely beside the point of this post. This post is about all the delicious things that we will be eating this week as soon as I rouse my lazy self and actually acquire the stuff with which to make them.

So (in no particular order):

Asparagus wrapped in smoked salmon and dunked in soft boiled eggs a la Heston in the current Waitrose ads.

One pot prawn and tomato curry with carrot and cumin salad and naan bread (eagle eyed viewers might note that this appeared a couple of weeks back, but for reasons which currently escape me, it never got made and the prawns have been languishing in the freezer ever since).

Spaghetti puttanesca – I think I must have seen a couple of blog posts about this recently, because for some reason it has lodged itself in my head.

Gnocchi with butternut squash a la D.

Venison burgers (brought back from the west coast of Scotland) with oven chips (classy, no?)

Pork cheeks with chorizo, white port and broad beans served with mustard mash.

Pop over to Mrs M's blog for more meal planning fun.


  1. Four months? How exciting. Wedding health check please - where are you with your dress for instance? I can't get enough wedding stuff!


  2. Thanks for joining in, some lovely sounding meals this week!
