A week in review

Well I thought I’d better go back and check how the last week turned out after participating in last Monday’s challenge from Inner Pickle.

Monday: Crab and apple salad. I’d been wanting to experiment with this for a long time and being home alone gave me the perfect opportunity. It wasn’t THAT great but I’m convinced it can be with some work. (tick)

Tuesday: It’s valentines day. We’re splitting dinner into bits and making it special. I lost the coin toss so I’ve got main course. My taller half will do entrée and dessert and I’m pretty sure I’m going to make a mussel pot with a decadent creamy white wine sauce. ‘Pretty sure’ is probably not good enough as it is tonight but I have faith. (Mussel pot got made along with oysters, salmon carpaccio and a tasty dessert)

Wednesday: No idea, my taller half will cook. (Ended up being a combined effort of chicken, fig, prosciutto and chevre salad with honey/mustard dressing)

Thursday: Same as Wednesday. (Ended up being takeaway Thai – deep fried bean curd and chicken and cashew stir fry)

Friday: We will probably stop in at Olivers as we will be on the road to up near Foster to see the Taller Half’s mum. (Yep, we stopped at olivers and shared a roast lamb and vege wrap)

Saturday: Whatever the plan ends up being at the ranch. (BBQ prawns, salad, potato and pavlova)

Sunday: Probably takeaway Thai as we will have driven back that day. (Watermelon, chevre and mint salad with roast chicken wings)

It went roughly according to the almost-non-plan, the only differences being who cooked and Thursday swapping with Sunday. Good know I roughly know what I am doing and what I’m not doing in life, as well as knowing that sometimes I don’t know. lol.

Thanks again for the challenge Pickle.
