Menu Plan Monday

Last weeks Menu Plan Monday went really well. I stuck to it almost completely apart from the Dim Sum Platter which I still don't seem to be able to get to! One of the highlights was Spaghetti with Mustard Greens from Ciao Chow Linda, it was delicious. I bought some mustard greens from the Farmers Market in Islington, last weekend and had just steamed them as an extra veg earlier in the week but they were a bit bitter. The chilli flakes and the garlic really complimented and toned down the bitterness, and it worked really well.

With M day minus two weeks, I don't think I'm going to be able to clear out the whole freezer in time. I have had some discussion with the Estate Agents and the sellers are hopefully leaving behind their fridge and freezer, so I will have something to move the left over frozen food into! This weeks Menu Plan Monday is still a desperate attempt not to buy any more food and to empty the freezer as I still have loads of veg in the bottom of my fridge.
