food glorious food my tea menu

OK so at the risk of sounding food OCD i plan what im eating for my tea about a month in advance, thats not saying im guilty of a cheeky pizza express on the way home every now and again but planning my food out helps me organise my nights around my baking and it also minimises waste as i only but fresh what i need.

Saying that very now and again im so busy and i get caught short.

The last 2 nights have been such examples.

Monday night i was home late and opened the fridge to some left over mashed potatoes, half a chorizo and some goatscheese.  Thinking caps on and literally 20 minutes later I was tucking into gnocchi with chorizo, goatscheese, toasted pine nuts (from my dry stores) and cherry tomatoes from the windowsill.

Oh dear ive gone off on a tangent, my original blog was about my tea menu!

So here it is, what i'll be eating (and trying to blog about) for the next couple of weeks...
