Meal Planning Monday - Haggis, Porcupines and Hobbits
Had a great week of meals influenced by others. Brinner is definitely going to be making a more regular appearance while the Salmon with Philadelphia and Pesto sauce was simple but very effective. Biggest hit however was the Thai Pork and Peanut Curry. Very quick and easy to throw together with an amazing flavour.
Philadelphia and Pesto Salmon
Thai Pork and Peanut Curry
An early Mothers Day dish on Friday when boy and girl decorated the top of my Cheesy Lentil Pie with Cornmeal Pastry.
They also served me breakfast in bed on Mothering Sunday complete with a vast menu and cute spelling. I opted for the Potato Kakes, Bacen and Blac Puding.
Definately not just for Burns Night. This will be a bit of a celebratory meal for boy and girl who were competing on Saturday in a School's Burns Competition and won Gold and Silver Medals. Boy will be reciting his winning "Address to a Haggis"
TUESDAY - Porcupine Meatballs
Beef meatballs with rice spines mixed through. Going to do them in the slow cooker with a tomato sauce.
A friend posted a photo of this on Twitter and it looked fantastic. Risotto made with Orzo. Hope mine turns out as good as hers looked. Also got Pinnies and Petticoats Cake Club tonight for Comic Relief. No idea what I'm baking.
THURSDAY - Toad in the Hole
This seems to have made an appearance on lots of menu plans over the last few week and I though it was about time it made it onto mine.
