As I’m sure you’re all well aware of now, Dave and I have chosen to eat a Pescatarian diet for the whole of January. I can’t believe it’s week three already, time in flying by.
On Wednesday night we were at the Orange tree in Leicester for their supper club ‘Meet & Eat’. It was a great evening, lots of fun and well worth the £25 ticket price (which included a welcome drink and three course meal). The scallops were the highlight of the meal for me. On Sunday night we went to ZAAP Thai Street Food in Nottingham and it was GREAT fun. It’ll be on the blog soon.
So far I’m not really missing meat, although, on Friday I did have an accidental slip-up. The chefs are changing the recipe on their burgers at one of the pubs and the manager brought out a plate of samples for a few of us to try. I popped a piece in my mouth without realising and actually, it wasn’t until after work when I was walking past Five Guys that I realised my mistake.
This weeks meal plan:
We are meeting a friend after work for drinks so dinner will need to be quick. I have a smoked haddock with chive and cheese sauce from Saucy Fish Co. that’ll go nicely with mash and peas.
I’m at my mum’s again – not sure whats for tea yet, maybe pasta.
We’re meeting a friend at the pub so I’m planning to make something which can be easily re-heated. At the moment I’m thinking vegetable curry. Maybe chickpea curry like the one above?
I am desperate to make some soup this week. Perhaps a chunky minestrone as I have a bag of soup pasta from Tuscany which I want to use. Plus when the weather is cold, I really crave soup and buttered crusty bread.
We’re heading down to Bristol after work so a quick dinner at our favourite place, Gloucester Services will be on the cards.
