Now. I note that of the four meals I have so far planned for this week three involve fish, and two fish in some sort of butter. Which is not particularly varied or exciting, is it? Never mind – it may not be the most balanced of foodie weeks but fish and butter are two of my favourite things.
So we have…
- Min’s favourite: tuna steaks with anchovy and rosemary butter and crushed new potatoes.
- Linguine with broad beans, peas and goats’ cheese
- Salmon with pasta pesto (making an early reappearance in the weekly plan owing to the fact that I need to use up the other half of the pesto and, well, I like it).
- Sea bass with fennel butter and …? Mash?
This last one is actually a Waitrose ready to cook jobby that was recommended in this month’s Good Food magazine and sounds perfect for a lazy Saturday evening.
On Sunday I think we will be firing up the barbecue. I quite fancy grilling some steaks for extravagant sandwiches (I’ve been watching a lot of Man Vs Food: The Carnivore Edition recently), or perhaps spatchcocking a chicken…but will see how the mood (and the content of the butchers) takes me.
As always, head to Mrs M’s blog for more meal planning fun.
