I didn’t get this posted yesterday, as I was a bit short on time over the weekend. Clearly not a short on produce, though, because I bought the lovely bunch of veg above for meals this week.
That one massive potato was dinner last night- Andrew and I shared a baked potato with all the fixin’s. For such a simple, everyday type of meal, it was a completely novelty to me- can you believe I’ve never had one before?! The little cottage tin loaf has been making wonderful toast already, too.
The jersusalem artichokes, swede and carrots will go toward that Root Vegetable Korma that I talked about making last week. By Nigel Slater (so it’s sure to be good), it sounds perfect for the chilly weather we’ve been having in London, and I’m finally getting around to making it tonight.
The romanescu is a compromise of sorts- I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to make broccoli soup or cauliflower soup, and this seemed like the best of both worlds. I’m not sure exactly what recipe I’ll be making, but Heidi‘s recent post on Broccoli Cheddar Soup looks like a good place to start.
I’m also going to be doing a little non-veg baking this week, as I’ve had a craving for a nut-packed, maple-flavoured tart for several weeks now. Perhaps it’s the impending holiday season; I’ve also got a festive review coming up on Kitchlit, so watch this (er, that) space!
Over to you- what’s cooking this week?
