7 days, 7 meals...................
Tuesday 2nd July; another favourite - sausage plate pie. I got this recipe eyars ago from susan Hill's lovely Through the Kitchen Window, and it's a regular here. It's sausagemeat and chopped onion in a pastry case - simple, easy, cheap and tasty. This was with some free range pork sausagemeat I found half price in a local shop, so bought a few of them. Usually, though, it's homemade sauasgemeat. We ahd this with buttered new potatoes and peas.
Tuesday 1st July; nice and easy tonight, pasta and cheese sauce, one of my favourites.
Monday 30th June; tonight's meal is leg of spring lamb, cooked with lavender, honey, garlic and olive oil, based on a recipe by Jimmy Doherty in his rather excellent book. Have cooked a pan of rice too,s o will have the lamb cold with rice salad. The smell when you open the oven door is unbelievably gorgeous........
Sunday 29th; we always get Sunday off to a good start with a cooked breakfast! This is mine, our own eggs, everything else local, followed by juice, fresh coffee and toast and marmalade.
Saturday 28th June - tonight had to be quick and easy, as I didn't get back until after 4pm; so, egg salad it was - our own eggs, home made mayonnaise, own lettuce, rest of the salad and potatoes local, bought in the market yesterday.
Friday 27th June - made pizzas for this evening, tailored to everyone's tastes. This one is mine, though!
Thursday 26th June - joining in with greentwinsmummy's idea of showing how we eat here, but with the main meal only; the rest of the day is help yourself, so no set meals as such - my two are grown up and feed themselves throughout the day, OH at work, main meal in evening. Tonight was toad-in-the-hole with mash and homemade chutney; sausages were free range, local and half price; pudding was local organic yoghurt and stewed gooseberries in elderflower cordial.
