MPM: 22nd September 2014
I am beside myself with excitement this week, as on Saturday and Sunday I am going down to London to do a creative writing masterclass - one of the programme run by the Guardian. Of course it means leaving Minx to the tender ministrations of D for a couple of nights but I'm sure they'll both cope.
We cooked a gammon joint in the slow cooker yesterday and so that features a couple of times this week. I'm not actually sure what one of the iterations will be, although I'm thinking a simple plate of just ham and buttery scrambled eggs, maybe a slice of toast for good measure. Simple, homely food.
Salmon in chraimeh sauce with couscous (the Ottolenghi recipe that we were supposed to be making last week got bumped to tonight - I'll be sure to report back)
Tagliatelle with a haggis ragu - this was originally planned out as lasagne but I have fresh pasta in the fridge that needs using, and a piece of haggis in the freezer and I love the idea of doing a sort of haggis bolognese.
Chunky pea and ham soup
Honey mustard chicken and parsnip one pot with mashed potatoes - a lovely, simple stew to greet me off the train on Sunday.
More meal planning fun over at Mrs M's.
