Menu plan – Thursday 5 May 2011

If you saw Tuesday’s post App-iness, you’ll know that I’ve been playing about with a new cookbook app for my smartphone.  So there are lots of new recipes to try on this week’s menu at Casa Copenhagen:

Cold weather hotpot which I shall make in my (beloved) crockpot

Penne with sausage and fennel don’t worry about the name, you use fennel seeds and not the real, yucky, stuff! ;D

Ryebread with liverpatΓ©, bacon and mushrooms –

hopefully the kids won’t bother with the beer and snaps…

Madder (Danish cold, open sandwiches) on the day I’m at a parents’ meeting at school (from 5 to 7pm).  The kids can easily make themselves this type of dinner without setting the house on fire – or, more to the point, this will stop me from sitting at the meeting thinking that they’re setting the house on fire… ;D

Summer in winter chicken with rice made in my ricecooker

*  Roast lamb, baby potatoes, stir-fried savoy cabbage and tomato salad

Springtime pasta (tortellini, broadbeans and ricotta)

*  And a ‘leftover’ night – which can always be made more exciting by the addition of some homemade ‘Set your (Flylady) timer muffins’ (which take, you guessed it, less than 15 minutes to put together πŸ™‚

Bon appΓ©tit!  Have a thoroughly thrilling Thursday! πŸ™‚
