It's December everybody! We're already five days into our Advent Calendar, and the countdown to Christmas is well and truly on - hurrah! I'm particularly over excited that on Tuesday we are going to a local Christmas market with carols and mulled wine, which should be a lovely start to the season. And then on Friday, we're both out with friends - me for a Christmassy afternoon tea, D to drink copious amounts of beer. Elsewhere, our meal plan looks like this:
Monday: Fast Day #1 and we're having fishcakes and salad
Tuesday: Out for mulled wine and mince pies - but we have a stash of M&S nibbles in the fridge if we want something when we get back
Wednesday: Fast Day #2 - sooooooooup.
Thursday: Mussel paella
Saturday: Spaghetti carbonara
Sunday: Lamb of some description with mashed potatoes and garlicky mushrooms (if you've seen my Paris post, you may recognise this as a re-creation of my favourite dish of the trip, I just hope that I can get it to taste half as good as it did in Cinq Mars!)
As always, happy cooking and eating this week les touts.
