February Meal Plans

OK, so it’s only January 3rd, but I am making a start on ideas for next month – which of course includes Pancake day and Valentine’s day.

I have a Pinterest board with recipe ideas and I’ve been drooling over meatball recipes, so they shall feature this month. Do you have a familiy favourite, a warming winter stew, a quick “tah dah” meal? Do leave a comment below with details, a link to your blog or instagram so I can share.

  1. beef meat balls in herby sauce
  2. sausages roasted on apple and red onion wedges – served with mash & lots of gravy. We use veggie sausages but delicious with meaty chipolatas…(contributed by Sarah via my facebook page – thanks Sarah)
  3. home made pizza
  4. fresh herb and lemon risotto
  5. prawn curry
  6. haddock chowder
  7. potato and chick pea curry

#girlgardener #ediblegarden #naturelover #nofilter When you're enjoying a quiet mug of tea & the sound of geese becomes deafening! Seeing far more fly over the house this year (& occassionally landing in the field, calling to each other then taking off and regrouping as if they have practised for years!! Lots of red admirals in the garden today
#naturelover #redadmiral #butterfly #embracingautumn #girlgardener #wildgarden Sunday loaf. I've always baked bread -  not very successfully - but earlier this year I treated myself to a workshop with Andy, who runs the Coffee Kitchen bakery in Cockermouth. He taught us that bread making can be slow &  gentle, that bread is a living food & that inspired me to keep learning & keep experimenting. This is a 100% spelt sourdough fresh from the oven. Mr T is desperate for it to cool down so he can have a slice, thickly spread with butter! Thanks @thecoffkitchen for all your patience & advice.

Trying to restore my mojo with a walk in the forest, where it's so wet that even the squirrels look miserable! Normally I stop here to drink coffee from my flask, but it's onwards & upwards, then home for dry clothes & hot chocolate!
