A week of dinners

It’s been a fairly good week for dinners around here, I think. Though oddly light on pasta. nAs always in my house, no children were necessarily fed in the ingestion of these meals, but your house might be different.

Working backwards, we had the following:

Saturday: Sausages and mash and broccoli.

There’s some caramelized red onion in the potato. I recommend it.

Friday: Quesadillas: onion and red pepper, chicken and beans. Cheese. Tortillas. Melty goodness with avocado and/or sour cream on top. No photo, sorry. Bad blogger.

Thursday: Chicken korma out of my Madhur Jaffrey book. (It’s basically this one.) I thought there’d be enough left to be half of the next day’s dinner, but someone took it to work for lunch. I only discovered this recently, but for me it’s essentially a store cupboard recipe once I have the chicken (you can even use milk+butter for the cream, though real cream is nicer) because I have a decent collection of spices and I even had the almonds. I put in frozen peas right at the end and was too lazy to make rice because we had naan bread.

Wednesday: Homemade pad-thai with tofu. I had used this recipe before (with tofu instead of pork and some other veg substitutions), to moderate success, but this time I was out of oyster sauce so I just used quite a lot of lime juice. It wasn’t great, but hey, it was dinner. I forgot to take a photo, sorry.

Tuesday: Meatballs in tomato sauce. I blogged this before so I can just send you here. It was much the same except no cauliflower. I stirred in some spinach leaves at the last minute for extra vitamins.

I was halfway through before I remembered the photo. You’ll see that’s a theme here.

Monday: The same meatballs with spaghetti. No photo. Use your imagination. And I made Key Lime Pie which was only delicious.
