Weekends always seem so distressingly short. Or is it just me? I'm sure they lasted forever when I was a child but now...blink and it is Monday morning.
Actually, it's Sunday evening as I write this and a very dark and wet and miserable Sunday evening it is too. We have had stew and dumplings for tea which was very weather appropriate. As we move in to March I feel like we should be opting for lighter, more salad-ey options but who can fancy salad in the face of bitter winds and driving rain?
Anyway, in terms of meal planning it is a short week. I'm away next weekend, heading to London to catch up with friends and watch irreverent musical theatre. D has nobly volunteered to eat the mystery fish that we have lurking in the freezer in my absence. For the nights where we are at home, I'm thinking...
Roast pork loin steaks, roast celeriac, braised red cabbage, tenderstem broccoli
Beef massaman curry
Not an awful lot of cooking required, as the cabbage and the curry are also being liberated from the freezer's icy depths. But lots to look forward to nonetheless.
More meal planning fun over at Mrs M's.
