Menu plan – Thursday 15 September 2011

Happy Danish Election Day!  But more on that later… Jings, it’s chilly these mornings – especially when my friend and I are out for our skinny dip in the Danish sea…water temp 14c or 58f!

Yesterday we counted five jellyfish…makes you extra careful getting in and out of the water ;D

But – on the other hand – it’s now perfectly legit to have candles burning morning, afternoon and evening!  And eat lots of warming, comfort food…  Here’s this week’s menu at Casa Copenhagen:

*  wholemeal pita pockets with spinach and ham, baked potato wedges on the side

*  crockpot lasagne (I’ll layer in any leftover fresh spinach from yesterday) – I make a variation of Krista’s recipe

*  Pasta Beef Satay (which has become a regular here) from Leanne Ely’s “Saving Dinner” book

*  Today – on Danish Election Day – we’re having “Valgflæsk” (Loft promises to voters…).  The recipe is here

Eek! You wouldn’t want to meet these election poster mugshots

on a dark and stormy night! ;D

my Mum’s Minestrone soup (which I make in the crockpot) with homemade wholemeal bread

*  crockpot chicken curry (put chicken pieces in the crock together with a can of coconut milk, curry paste and veggies – add a squirt of lime juice at the end) and jasmine rice (made in my beloved ricecooker)

*  leftover crock lasagne, salad and a slice of cake for dessert (which will no doubt be a recipe from my new blog…my little red file

Bon appétit!

And Happy Danish Election Day! Who knows…maybe Denmark is going to get it’s first ever female Prime Minister? 🙂
