Last week's highlights were definitely the Chicken, Orzo and Ginger Soup which was so tasty, and the Roast Pigeon on Saturday night which was perfectly cooked, despite looking slightly charcoal like in the picture below! The Brussels sprouts with pancetta accompaniment was also really good, and I used the leftover pigeon bones to make stock yesterday which will make some delicious soups!
Menu Plan Monday this week is again really simple. I am going to my Parents house for a night this week for a doctors appointment, so I will get some good old home cooking on Tuesday, which I am really looking forward to. This weeks cookbook recipe is Dijon Pasta Salad with Bacon from Dying for Chocolate by Diane Mott Davidson. I have been reading lots of culinary mysteries recently and many of them have recipes at the end of chapters, so I'm going to try one out! I will some day write a comprehensive list of food in fiction. I have found many lists on the topic but they all seem to have different books on them!
