Thank you for all those lovely New Year messages on my last post. I didn’t respond as unfortunately I was laid out on my sickbed having succumbed to a winter sickness lurgy. I have been looking very mournful for the last few days, I can tell you! Nothing makes me sadder than having to miss meals.
I have rallied, you’ll be pleased to hear. Unfortunately, my system was obviously thrown into such a state of confusion that several days of close acquaintance with the bathroom floor followed by several more days of erratic eating have resulted in…a stay the same. I am sanguine. If I were my digestive system, I’d be confused too. And seeing as I didn’t gain any weight over the festive period this seems like a fair pay off to me. Still, one week into the New Year and I haven’t yet gained any weight – 2012 is not to be written off yet.
This year I do want to stick to regular meal planning posts as much as possible, so feel free to come and beat me with a big virtual stick if you don’t see one during the first few days of the week.
Then without further ado, what’s cooking chez moi this week?
- Sweet potato cakes with crispy bacon, salad and a yoghurt and sour cream dressing
- Smoked salmon and spring onion risotto
- Classic macaroni cheese
- Ham, fresh pea and leek soup with a lemony yoghurt swirl
- Thai style quick lamb and green bean curry with rice and naan bread
