Menu Monday 5th September 2011 - The Lean Times


Sep 5, 2011 Menu Monday , , , , , 5 Comments

Summer is officially at an end with Labor Day and the Bank Holiday, here in the UK, being over so it is back to business at Lean Times HQ. I have lots a cool, exciting posts planned for you, my lovely readers, so stay tuned.

The other big news is I will be blogging over at the super cool Totally Money site so please pop over and have a read.  There are lots of great bloggers on the site from both sides of the ocean with tons of hints and tips.

Monday – Gingered roast chicken with nectarines – this recipe is an old favourite from the book Clay Cookery. I could not find a similar recipe on line so if you would like it please email me and I will send it to you.   I serve it with rice and green beans.

Tuesday – I am out with the Totally Money writers so no cooking for me. Yipee!

Wednesday – Red pepper and courgette(zucchini) fritatta 

Thursday –  Cheese burgers with mini latkes – this is a new obsession that goes with Lidl’s lovely beef that was half price.  Also if I tried to sneak in another veggie meal there might be a mutiny.

Friday – Chilli Tofu with stir fried bok choy

For more menus head over to OrgJunkie. Have a great week.

    Hello Ketutar, thanks for commenting. Yes that is the recipe, well done on finding it! I don’t have a clay oven anymore, mine cracked because the new oven uses air to cook even when it is not set on Fan. The recipe works perfectly in a Dutch oven with a lid. Please get back to me if you like the recipe. It has been requested again for this week as nectarines are in season.

    Oh, I love being able to help 🙂
    I haven’t tried the recipe yet, but it sounds wonderful, I love meat and fruits prepared together.
