Back from Cornwall - How many times have I started my blog with those words?!
Only a small catch - a couple of pollack and a ling. I processed these and left them with my friend J. We really do have plenty in the freezer to see us over the winter.
Last week I made a fish pie with poached pollack, covered with left over cheese sauce and topped with left over potatoes. With some grated cheese sprinkled on top it went really well with some mixed veggies from the garden. there was still a little left the next day so I heated up the fish and cheese sauce and served it on toast and D. and C. really enjoyed it for lunch. Would you call that "left over left overs"?
Tomorrow morning I will attack the tomato harvest and process some for the freezer. I will try to remember to take pictures this time.
In the afternoon I am meeting with a couple of women from the Civic Society to work on some maps of the village to illustrate a project for the exhibition in the first weekend in November... not far away and still MUCH to do. Must knuckle down.
Tonight I planned the meals for the week . I feel really satisfied with the list as I will only have to do one very small shop before next Saturday I need to buy butter, sliced bread, cooking margarine, milk and cat food.
Tomorrow I will make a tomato and pepper soup to last 3 days.
Lunches tend to be cheesy beans or tomatoes on toast or soup.
Evening meals, in case you are interested -
Monday - Sausage and Mash with fried onions and cabbage
Tuesday - Cheese, Leek and Potato Pie with peas and roasted tomatoes.
Wednesday - Lasagne , left over from today, coleslaw and jacket potatoes.
Thursday - Fish in breadcrumbs, french beans and chips or wedges
Friday - Macaroni Cheese with bacon, tomatoes and spinach
Saturday - Chicken Pie with mashed potatoes, carrots and cabbage.
If not too many extra people arrive we will mange very well this week!
To bed Gill, before you turn into a pumpkin ( Oh yes I have a recipe for spicy pumpkin soup to try next week too)
