What’s for dinner this week at Casa Copenhagen? Yet another “public holiday” in Denmark this week! (Church and state are linked in Denmark and most of our public holidays follow the Christian calendar. Thursday is Kristi Himmelfart = Ascension. And schools/many workplaces will also be closed on Friday). If I don’t specify below, side dishes are usually a fresh veggie platter (tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, broccoli florets, etc) or a spinach salad. And remember, when you’re menu planning to K.I.S.S.! Keep it simple, sweetie!
Chicken, crispy bacon and avocado salad
Chops with Couscous and Oven-Roasted Ratatouille. Oven-roasting the veggies really brings out the flavour: I prefer it to stove-cooked versions which can get very soggy. Simply chop up courgettte, aubergine, tomatoes, onion, red peppers, a little garlic and basil. Salt and pepper. Toss in olive oil and roast in a hot oven for about 30 minutes.
Chilli sin carne in hollowed-out bread “bowls”. With grated cheese, salsa, creme fraîche. My 15 minute bread roll recipe ishere.
Spaghetti Carbonara (eggs, cream, parmesan, bacon).
Home vegetable quiche or tart (I have a very easy recipe here) with Salted Baby Potatoes
Pork Tenderloin with lightly boiled carrots, new potatoes and a creamy, balsamico sauce.
And one or two days of the week will usually be “something made with leftovers”, a takeaway or Danish smørrebrød (ryebread with various toppings).
