Somehow, there was a pleasing flow to last week’s menus, and I thought I’d note it as it happens so rarely.
We started off on Sunday with a lovely organic leg of lamb from the food market, roasted as per my recipe here.
Monday: Moroccan fish tagine, although I left out the tomato – I used monkfish and prawns. Lovely.
Tuesday: cold roast lamb, rather too much mashed potato, and spiced red cabbage.
Wednesday: more cooked lamb, stir fried with pak choi, spring onions, garlic, ginger, some wizened mushrooms which I soaked in boiling water for half an hour, oyster sauce, tamari, five spice – you know the sort of thing. Worked really well.
Thursday: venison sausages with some more of the red cabbage, and more mash.
Friday: a tub of goulash from the freezer, which went with the seemingly inexhaustible red cabbage (although we did manage to finish it then), and some rice
Saturday: a rather interesting use of potatoes, cream, gruyere and the last* of the lamb, which I shall write up later.
* Last? well almost; I boiled the bones up yesterday, and it will shortly be turned into this week’s soup.
