Menu plan – Thursday 17 November 2011

Hooray for Thursday – or “Little Friday” as we like to call it around here!  ;D  We’re running full-steam ahead towards the weekend while our local shops run full-steam towards Christmas.  Fairy lights are popping up all over (which is nice because it’s now pitch black by 4.30pm) and we’ve just seen our village Christmas tree being hoisted into place…

But, as usual, I digress!  Here’s this week’s menu at Casa Copenhagen:

*  wholemeal pasta with pesto, leftover duck and ‘on their last legs’ veggies

*  oven baked honey/mustard ham with gratin dauphinois (baked in the oven at the same time) and peas

suppe (Danish soup: stock, carrots, meatballs and dumplings) with hot wholemeal rolls

*  takeaway sushi (woo hoo!) for DS11 and I on a night when DD9 is away at school camp

*  DS11 is hosting one of the ‘dinner groups’ in his class so the kids (four of them) will be preparing our dinner.  The menu is: veggie burgers (veggie burger, wholemeal buns, bacon, cheese, lettuce, cucumber, ketchup, fried onions, etc), baked potato wedges. And banana splits for dessert 🙂

I made up some teeny, mini muffins for the school’s bake sale –

and was able to declutter my stash of cake toppers at the same time! 🙂

flæskesteg (Danish roast pork with crunchy crackling), baby potatoes, sovs (gravy), red cabbage and green beans.  And a very good bottle of red wine… ;D

madder (Danish open sandwiches on rye bread) topped with smoked salmon and fresh prawns.

Bon appétit!

Have a thoroughly thrilling Thursday! 🙂
