This week in the kitchen

Monday/6-Nov-17: Earlyish meal today was a halfish recipe of Scallops in Lemon-Caper Sauce (web). Pretty good it was. Served with steamed haricots verts and orzo. The sauce was good with these. Then a big salad. Then some mini ice cream bars.

Tuesday/7-Nov-17: Ed had his MRI today. Now we have to see a doctor to see what happens next.

Dinner was Broccoli Soup with Lemon-Chive Cream from the freezer. Gave it another buzz, then added some broccoli bits. And tuna salad sandwiches. We were full, even though we didn't have lunch.

Yogurt on overnight.

Wednesday/8-Nov-17: Shopping today.

Dinner was Jamie Oliver's Smoky Chorizo Salmon (web), with all those cherry tomatoes (only 250g of them) laboriously emptied of seeds, along with trio rice and some roasted cauliflower. Yum. Some store-bought custards for dessert.

Thursday/9-Nov-17: Used the steam-sautéed veggies, mostly potatoes and carrots, that we didn't eat a few days ago, to make a sort of stewy dish. And sliced in the rest of the chorizo from yesterday. Apple, pear, and a weird cheese (St Mont des Alpes) for dessert.

Friday/10-Nov-17: Rose Anne and her grand-daughter Annie came for a meal today. We were worried because she's busy packing, and not eating well. We started with Lamb's Lettuce and Beetroot (BEFCC, p32), which is easy and delicious. I mistakenly bought a sack of mâche and cresson, instead of just mâche, but that worked fine. I'd forgotten the recipe make way too much sauce. It's good, though, so we'll have it for our next salads. Then there was Slow-Roast Lamb (Diaries, p62), which is easy and super yummy. That was served with Clotilde Dusoulier's Perfect Roasted Potatoes (web). There was a little bit of juice from the lamb. The juice was a bit salty, but fine over the meat and potatoes. Rose Anne brought an apple crumble for dessert. We ate well.

Saturday/11-Nov-17: Rose Anne fed us while we were packing today and we didn't feel like eating when we came home. I had a bit of salad later.

Sunday/12-Nov-17: Bucatini with pasta sauce of chicken livers, tomatoes, and bacon from the freezer. Still good. Then a salad. Then we finished the apple crumble.
