So last week we mainly ate beetroot and the solitary cabbage left by the lambs when they took over the hugelkultur beds. I roasted a few beetroot to eat through the week and whizzed up a batch of Thai green curry paste for the curry on Saturday and froze the rest for later. I also had a bag of lettuce leftover from my visit to the shops last week! Our meals all seem a bit beige at the moment.
Monday: kale and chickpea ragout (?) with chilli and a splash of sherry and sherry vinegar. We had it with poached duck eggs.
Tuesday: beetroot, pesto and goats cheese puff pastry tart
Wednesday I made pasta, lemon and purple sprouting broccoli when I stayed with my friend
Thursday: beetroot, goats cheese and toasted walnut salad with cheese (a lovely Red Leicester from Neal’s Yard Dairy) on toast – I added a little leftover home-cured prosciutto that I found in the back of the fridge – this stuff lasts forever.
Friday: cabbage braised in broth with spaghetti and turkey meatballs (made from the meat of our very old turkeys)
Saturday: Thai green curry with cabbage and salmon
Sunday: griddled (rare) 6-spice lamb with kosheri. My kosheri maybe had a little too much cinnamon in – it still tasted good, but it went brown-ish!
