MPM: 1st September 2014
While alarmed by the speed at which the year is passing, nevertheless, I get a little bit of a thrill writing the word "September" in the title. We're now coming into one of my favourite parts of the year, that late summer, early autumn period where the light has a certain clarity, the air a little nip and the mind can (very slowly) begin to turn to (whisper it) the C word.
We have a meal plan in place for six out of seven days this week - our plans for Sunday have now changed so not sure what we'll end up doing. Plenty of time to worry about that though, and in the meantime, I've picked a couple of "classic" dishes from this very blog to revisit, which, overall, gives the plan a wee bit of an Italian feel. We shall have to redress this with a trip to another continent next week. But in the meantime, the meal plan looks like this:
Kipper, bacon and new potato salad topped with a poached egg
Chicken (Sunday roast leftovers) and sage and onion stuffing sandwiches
Gnocchi with butternut squash, chilli and sage
Burmese chicken soup (thank you, Mr Waitrose)
Oven baked red pepper and chorizo risotto
And that's us! More meal planning fun over at Mrs M's.
