Menu Plan Monday

There were definite highlights from last week. I tried turbot for the first time and absolutely loved it, and the poulet a l'estragon was delicious. I wasn't a big fan of the cheesy tuna tortilla melts though. They had a slightly strange sweet edge to them from the tinned tuna, and would have been much better with chicken or beef. One of the best meals from last week was one my sister requested for our Sunday night get together. It was Southern Indian Seafood and Rice Soup by Jamie Oliver. I really enjoyed it, I used a little less chilli, because both of us are really susceptible to it, and I loved the flavour and textures from the fish and rice. My sister found it a little too creamy, and would have halved the coconut milk and used water instead.

This week is going to be busy. I have a group presentation for college tomorrow and loads of things to get done at work this week. I also have to start researching for another essay which is due in April. So the menu plan is simple and lots of things I've cooked many times before. My freezer has also got a bit full again so I'm working to try and empty it a bit before I made more delicious food! I am really looking forward to the Chicken wrapped in bacon because I haven't had it in ages and also the sausages with pease pudding. I'm curious to find out what pease pudding tastes like.
