One of the joys of blogging is being inspired by other bloggers. Eliane over at faites simple has challenged herself to plan her week's meals in advance on Sunday evening and to make better use of her 'embarrassingly unused cookbook library'.
This is something I have tried at various points in my life. When I succeed it transforms my week. No more midday panics over what we're going to eat that evening, no getting halfway through a recipe only to discover that I'm missing a key ingredient, no nasty discoveries at the back of the fridge ...
So this week I'll be (mainly) cooking from Rose Prince's the new english kitchen.
Haggis, neeps & tatties (in celebration of Rabbie Burns)
Baked chick peas, peppers & potatoes with yoghurt sauce
Butternut squash risotto
Braised red lentils with lime juice & feta
Tamarind fish stew (from the freezer)
Chicken curry (from the freezer)
Beef braised with rhubarb
