MPM: 19th May 2014

Is this it?  Are we finally into summer?  It's so hard to tell in this country and one hates to get too excited lest it all go horribly wrong.  Let's just say as I sit here writing this the sun is pouring through the windows and I can see more than a patch of blue in the sky.  But not all of the meal plan for the week does is particularly summery - I think there is some bet hedging going on chez WWF!

After blowing most of my weekly points at a gin tasting on Saturday (totally worth it) I don't have a lot of wriggle room this week so will need to be careful.  I think most of the evening meals are pretty modest as a result.

Baked eggs with asparagus, anchovies and Parmesan - we continue to enjoy the British asparagus season and the combination of the lovely, ironey shoots with a creamy, salty egg should be lovely.

Rotisserie chicken with salad, homemade coleslaw and crusty bread - I love a good Waitrose rotisserie chicken for a quick and delicious supper, and I HAVEN'T solely put this on the menu to see if the cat likes roast chicken....

Leftover chicken biryani based on this recipe (although clearly subbing lamb for chicken...)

Sea bass with parsnip puree and caramelised garlic - a D masterpiece to start the weekend.

Corned beef and mustard sandwiches on rye with dill pickles and, with the other half of the piece of meat we remove from the freezer...

Corned beef, mashed potato, braised cabbage and parsley sauce (this sounds like good Sunday lunch fodder to me).

More meal planning fun over at Mrs M's.


  1. The sea bass sounds delicious and I love parsnips - can I come round for tea? :)

  2. I love getting a rotisserie chicken too and I think the cat will love it!


    1. It's such a lovely, quick dinner isn't it?

      What a spoiled kitty though...she got fresh salmon chopped up in her bowl last week!

  3. Everything sounds fab!
    I'm liking the sound of the Rotisserie chicken!! Yum!!

    1. I'm already looking forward to that chicken :-)
