Last night I roasted a chicken – a gorgeously plump, golden thing, and the leftovers will form the basis of two meals this week:
o Cold meat with home made potato salad and mixed leaves (a nod to spring)
o Pasta pollo pesto – a remake of a dish that they serve in Pizza Express, basically a creamy pesto pasta bake with chicken and mushrooms. If it turns out well I may blog it.
Then we have a mid week fishy interlude:
o Pan fried salmon with curried mussels – yum. Another one to blog, I think.
Thursday I’m out at a leaving do. There’ll be a second portion of pasta bake in the fridge but I may end up just eating toast. Then…
o For the foreseeable future, I’m declaring Friday night Burger Night. I have some gorgeous steak burgers in the freezer one of which I’m going to enjoy in a crusty roll with slappy cheese, ketchup and pickle. Side will be potato wedges or salad depending on the points situation.
Not sure about the weekend, but hopefully I’ll be seeing my Mum at some point and my brother has suggested I bake her a cake which I think is an excellent idea.
Head over to Mrs M’s for more meal planning fun…
