Lush Living Made Simple

Menu Monday 26th September 2011 - The Lean Times


Sep 26, 2011 Menu Monday , , , , , , , , 4 Comments

This week, I am working a full five days so my beloved has promised to pitch in a bit. I love it that he knows his way around the kitchen.  Do your other halves help with the cooking?  What are their favourite recipes? Mine likes doing a roast.

Monday –  Roast chicken with roasted new potatoes with caramelized onions and truffle oil – do you ever cook with truffle oil?  It is one of my favourite luxury ingredients, it makes the ordinary absolutely lush.

Tuesday – Cheeseburger pie with salad

Wednesday – Stuffed peppers with couscous and feta

Thursday – Spicy spaghetti with fennel and herbs

Friday – Mushroom risotto – made with stock from Monday’s chicken.

    Hi Laura, thanks for commenting. Perhaps you are lucky that your husband doesn’t cook, my man is not the tidiest of chefs but the food is good.

    My “other half” is a great cook. Makes a mean Pasta Bolognese! He is also great at cleaning up and doing the dishes. Perhaps he’ll cook one of your recipes next!!
