Seasonal Fast Day Meal

Having consulted with the boss, this is our Fast Day meal plan for Not-Christmas on the 25th Dec:

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta & Sage

I’m taking this recipe for roasted sprouts at 109 kcals/serving then adding to it 100g of chestnuts (plus 65 kcals) and adding a medium skinless chicken breast each for a further 162 kcals. Total so far = 336

On the side:

Braised red cabbage with cider & apples. Not my usual recipe for braised cabbage but variety is good, yes?

166 kcals/serving

502 kilocalories! not many flavours missing there, really.

I’ll cook half quantities, leaving sufficient left over for a second meal. A non-fast day, with roasted goose fat potatoes and maybe some seasonally flavoured sausages.

Looks like a plan to me.

Tuesday’s shopping list updated appropriately. Time now for a soak in the bath, my work being done.

I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
