Diet meal plan: using homegrown vegetables
My dinner at local eatery The Two Brewers was excellent, and after some Twitter persuasion, I made sure I ordered a Cardona and Son pork chop. Highly recommended and well worth a visit for my Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire readers.
This week, I've begun to harvest vegetables from the garden, so meals now will have to incorporate this homegrown produce. It's exciting to grow your own veg but sometimes it can be hard to know how to cook it!
Chicken and pea risotto (peas from the garden, chicken is leftover from the weekend).
Gammon with potato, swede & turnip gratin, & broccoli (potatoes, turnip, and swede harvested on Sunday!)
Salmon, new potatoes, and salad (I was given an enormous iceberg lettuce by an allotment neighbour)
Chicken breasts, homemade potato wedges, salad
Two parties, we will eat on the go.
Sandwiches and leftovers and recovery!
