This week’s meal plans: enter the wild garlic

Posted by on Sunday 6 March 2011 in cooking, weekly meal plans | 0 comments

We ended up with more leftovers last week than I though – we got two dinners out of the risotto and two & a half from the kedgeree, so ended up shuffling things to get those used up. Four portions of curry went in the freezer too – homemade ready meals for the future – but I struggled to fit them in because we have a lot of previously frozen dinners in there – need to start working our way through them to keep them well rotated.

I’m delighted that the wild garlic in the woods is getting big enough to pick now – I hope it’ll feature quite a bit in our diet over the next couple of months (in salads if nothing else).

Sunday lunch – leftover pizza, mmm pizza
Sunday dinner – pasta with chorizo, wild garlic & pine nuts, with salad

Monday lunch – tomato & basil soup with bread
Monday dinnerspicy sausages & lentil casserole (will make enough for two dinners – second lot to be frozen)

Tuesday lunch – fish and chips if Strowger comes around :)
Tuesday dinner – pork chops with creamy mustard leeks and baked sweet potato

Wednesday lunch – bread and cheese & meat
Wednesday dinner – previously frozen keema & channa curry, with naan

Thursday lunch – egg mayo ploughmans lunch type thing
Thursday dinner – jerk chicken with rice&peas (or chips, if we’re feeling lazy) and salad

Friday lunch – leftover chicken with salad
Friday dinner – frittata
