Happy Monday campers! Actually, I'm writing this on Friday afternoon so the weekend is still to come. I hope that it was a good one. We have plans for a trip into town for brunch and books, the very nicest sort of day. Although, really, I need to stop buying books. I've got a tottering TBR (to be read) pile that I really should tackle before adding still more to it. But I just can't resist - nothing makes me giddier than the prospect of a browse around a bookshop. Except, possibly, a browse around a lipstick counter.
We digress. For today, it is Monday, and that means meal planning (although, actually, we did that on Thursday so the meal plan was contrived on Thursday, written on Friday and only published on Monday. Mind blowing.)
This week, we fast Monday and Thursday - and after a couple of poor weeks we are determined to get two good days under our belts. On Friday, we are going for dinner at that behemoth of the Harrogate food scene, Norse. Looking forward to that one. Elsewhere:
Tuesday: a four cheese risotto. Yep, that's right - risotto made with FOUR different cheeses. The recipe is from The Silver Spoon. I am looking forward to sinking into a cheesy coma afterwards.
Wednesday: D has selected bangers and mash - there's very much a comfort food theme emerging here, isn't there?
Saturday: a recipe from "Simple" by the wonderful Diana Henry. Devilled mackerel with cucumber and watercress yoghurt.
Sunday: roast pork. Tomorrow, we embark upon a vegetarian week so I have promised D a good chunk of meat to see him off and he has challenged me to make better crackling than my mother, who cooked roast pork for us a couple of weeks ago. It's not something I cook very often, but I will do my best.
