Menu plan – Thursday 3 November 2011

We’re now into November, the winter tyres are going on the car tomorrow, our wood-burning stove is lit every night and candles are burning morning, afternoon and evening! 🙂

And, as the temperatures drop outside, it’s time to start making lots of warming stews and casseroles.  Here’s this week’s menu at Casa Copenhagen:

*  game stew (a mix of vegetables/venison straight from the supermarket deli counter, just needs to be flashfried) served with bulgur wheat (made in my beloved ricecooker)

*  leftover spaghetti bolognese with vegetables added, breadcrumbs and cheddar cheese on the top, baked in the oven

*  That old British classic…Toad in the Hole – don’t know what that is?  An explanation and the recipe is here! 🙂  We’ll have it with salad on the side.

Abrikos oksegryde (beef and apricot stew) served with mashed potato and broccoli.  It’s a recipe I’m trying out – probably in my crockpot – for my Little Red Fileblog

Spinattærte med æble, bacon og feta (spinach quiche with apple, bacon and feta cheese) – another recipe I’m making for my Little Red File blog

*  last week we were supposed to have fish (which had been bumped from the menu for weeks!) and – yep, folks – it’s still in the freezer!  Crossing my fingers that our plans won’t change this week…  Will cover it with herbs and breadcrumbs and bake it and serve it with The Pioneer Woman’s crash (leftover) potatoes, remoulade sauce and a green salad

*  leftover night…or soup, toasted sandwiches and fresh veggie sticks

Bon appétit!

Have a lovely ‘Little Friday’! 🙂
