I bought a fresh large cob from the bakers and some gorgeous cheese from a local posh cheese shop.
They included some goats cheese with fenugreek, red Leicester with chilli, Bix from a nearby farm, Barkham blue, another local cheese and a camembert that I studded with rosemary from the garden and then baked.
I also bought kettle chips, nachos, a tub of tapenade some grapes and some sour cream dip.
For my beloved I made some sausage rolls, cheese palmers and cooked some mini sausages.
Some of the grapes were posed artfully on the cheese board, the rest were served later in the fruit bowl with some satsumas instead of desert.
The food went down very well and there wasn't a lot left but here is what I did this morning with the leftovers.
For breakfast I had a slice of the bread, toasted on one side, then I spread the other side with tapenade and the rest of the creamy Bix, it went under the grill until the cheese had melted, it made a delicious breakfast.
All the last bits of the hard cheeses have been grated together and are in the freezer until I need to make a cheese sauce, my L&M won't know they are in there so will eat it willingly!
My lunch today will be a jacket potato with the rest of the sour cream dip, my L&M won't eat lunch, he had a cooked breakfast around 11ish and will have roast lamb shank about 5ish.
Meal plan or lack thereof.
I don't have a fixed in stone meal plan, if I did either my L&M or wouldn't fancy the upcoming meal and it would be wasted.
I do work vaguely along the scheme below.
Roast on Sunday, often a cheats roast using a chop or sliced cooked meat leftover from a previous joint.
Something with mash, liver, sausage, cottage pie, chops or fish pie.
Something with pasta, spag bol or carbonara.
Something with rice, piri piri, curry or Chinese.
Something with chips, steak, egg or gammon.
