Another week, another meal plan. The kitchen is currently smelling of Christmas as our pudding is steaming away and the cake is in the oven. That’s the fruit that’s been soaking overnight in the picture above. The pudding is from Delia and is a classic, I’ve made it for a number of years – one of these days I’ll make it in July so it can really mature. The cake is from last year’s November edition of Waitrose Food magazine, the recipe is here if you fancy a go, I made it last year and it is honestly the best Christmas cake I have ever tried. It’s very gingery and moist and so, so yummy. That’s going to be made for years and years around here that’s for sure. Anyway, what am I cooking this week for dinner?
Monday – Roast pork belly with roast vegetables (I meant to cook this on Saturday, but got sidetracked)
Tuesday – Carrot soup (made in the slow cooker while I’m at work)
Wednesday – Puff pastry tart.
Thursday – Beans on toast
Friday – Mac and cheese. Betsy’s absolute favourite and we have my mum and dad visiting and the craft night so I’ll be making loads to spare.
The weekend I have no idea what to do. We’ll see how we feel. No baking plans this week as I hae enough to do, although looking at the amount of dried fruit I have hanging around, I may do a bit of mincemeat. What are you cooking this week?
