The response to our ‘What’s On Your Plate’ stories seems to grow daily, over on Instagram. So, I thought I’d gather all our #WOYP dishes and the meals you’ve posted. Creating one, big source of food inspo. Feel free to Pin ad share!
If you’re planning on using our ‘What’s On Your Plate’ list to source ideas for meal planning you might find our staple shopping list for this week helpful:
At least once a fortnight I’ll make an army sized batch of Bolognese. This is then used for three of our favourite dishes; spaghetti, chilli con carne and Sloppy Joe Pizza
Garlic Bread Pizza Base (I cheat and buy one from the supermarket, G makes it from scratch-you make your choice!)
Bolognese sauce (spiced or not)
Topped with cheese and baked in the oven
Veggie Couscous and spicy polenta:
Couscous mixed with brocoli fried off in garlic. Served with sliced polenta fried with chopped chilli and lime juice.
Quick meat balls and pasta
Our cheat is to use sausages. Remove the skins and roll into balls.
Mushroom and Stilton Soup:
Possibly the most simple and hearty winter soup to make! Simply boil down mushrooms, potatoes, onions and garlic. Mix in some double cream, season to taste and dress with a sprinkling of Stilton cheese.
I recently had the most amazing pulled beef burrito at Rustic in West Didsbury. Burritos are a firm favourite in our house as they can be tailored to everyones tastes and even deconstructed. If you do manage to get over to Rustic, I’d definitely recommend pairing your Burrito with a Pornstar martini: Sounds so wrong, but felt so right! *snorts as she types!*
When making Burritos at home we tend to use minced beef, so this meal is a great way to use up any Bolognese sauce you have left over from your sloppy Joes pizza. By turning it into chilli (as previously mentioned).
We found the perfect prawn risotto recipe over on Pinterest and have pinned it to our recipe board.
With all inspiration for this one taken from summers in Greece; when it comes to pork chops marinate them in salt, olive oil and oregano. Best BBQ’d, but just as good browned in the oven or on the fry. I recommend pairing them up with our quick, summer salad.
