Menu plan - Thursday 26 May 2011

Happy 'Little Friday'! Weather is sunny (at least for the next 10 minutes), I was out 'lawnmothering' earlier and there's no other way to put it off...it's time to sit down and menu plan - eek!

Lawn is looking lovely but I'm not going to
show you the weeds in the flower beds ;D

*   Krebinetter (Danish pork patties) with jasmine rice made in (beloved) ricecooker, green salad

*  Lamb steaks baked in the oven with green beans/garlic/honey and leftover jasmine rice

DD8 slathering mustard and brown sugar on to the lamb steaks
*   "Fish n' chips" - salmon steaks (I add a 'crust' of breadcrumbs/seasoning/herbs) and oven chips

*   Takeaway sushi for DS11 and I on the night that DD8 and DH are out - yippeeeeee! :D

*   Confit de canard (duck confit - from a tin all the way from La France) with baby potatoes and a salad of red cabbage/carrot (see Tuesday's post about red cabbage/being all grown up)

DS11's favourite food is sushi but confit de canard comes high on the list too :)
Chicken, sweet potato and coconut curry (from BBC Good Food website) - which I'll make in my crockpot.  We recently made our own naan bread (another BBC recipe) - which was a huge success - so will no doubt make some to go with the curry...


*   Leftover night this week will probably be a frittata (there are lots of eggs to use up) with veggies from the fridge that have seen better days...

That's it - bon appétit!

Have a thoroughly thrilling Thursday! :)

Can't wait to try the naan! Perfect for the summer for when I want fresh bread but don't want to heat the kitchen with the oven :D

Oooo, you must try it - ever so easy! I made the dough in my breadmachine (I'm such a slacker). It's very sticky when it's ready, so make sure you have *lots* of flour ready. And plenty of water and towels... :P
