Menu plan – Thursday 29 November 2012

Beginning to feel the Christmas excitement now – we’ve started some festive baking and I’ve been with friends to an exhibition of Danish Christmas decorations.  But I don’t feel that I can really let it rip until Saturday comes (1st December)!

Here’s what’s for dinner at Casa ‘Almost-Christmas’ Copenhagen this week:

*  crockpot beef in beer stew – I shared the recipeon Tuesday

*  spaghetti bolognese/pasta med kødsovs/spaghetti with meat sauce – because DS12 has just had two teeth pulled – on opposite sides of his mouth – and needs easy food! :o)

*suppe (Danish carrot, meatball and dumpling soup) with toasted ryebread

*  leftover spaghetti bolognese, jazzed up with extra veggies, sprinkled with cheese and breadcrumbs and baked in the oven, homemade carrot breadrolls on the side

*  out to a school Christmas event (the menu is chili con carne and æbleskiver Danish Christmas donuts) – no cooking or washing up for me – yay! 😀

*  chicken parmesan (chick breasts dipped in egg and breadcrumbs and fried, then finished off in the oven on top of a bed of tomato sauce) with rice and salad

*  I have some cod fillets in the freezer – will probably wrap them in bacon and roast them in the oven, serve with a spinach salad and some rösti potato

DS12 has made brownies for his School Christmas Lunch…

That’s it – bon appétit!

Have a thoroughly thrilling Thursday!
