Menu plan – Thursday 10 February 2011

We’re in the run up to the school winter week (vinterferie) and really looking forward to not having to jump out of bed when it’s still dark 🙂  DH is away travelling for part of this week, so the kids have firmly set their stamp on the menu…

* Homemade pepperoni pizza and veggie sticks, prepared for us by DS11 (maybe we should start calling him Little Chef?)

* Biksemad which is basically Danish ‘hash’: chopped onions, cubed potatoes and cubed meat, fried up and topped with a fried egg and cubed beetroot. And plenty of ketchup.

* Pasta med kødsovs/spag bog/spaghetti with meatsauce – whatever you like to call it in your corner of the world.  Always hits the spot!  🙂  Green spinach salad on the side.

* Stegt flæsk med persillesovs. Mmm, a big family favourite and a Danish classic.  Fried belly pork (til it’s super, super crisp) served with homemade parsley sauce and baby potatoes.  And steamed carrots or panfried cabbage, depending on my mood that day.

* Wholemeal pasta shells with a bit of cream, shredded chicken and sugarsnap peas.

Madder – which sounds pretty crazy – but is in fact plain old Danish open sandwiches 🙂

I won’t be blogging next week as we’ve Scottish family here with us for the week. But the menu includes roast chicken, glazed ham, Danish sausages, several cakes (including our Mazarinkage, a marcipan cake) and no doubt lots of yummy snacks like nachos…

Have a thoroughly thrilling Thursday! 🙂
