w/c Monday 8th March 2021
My children’s have had their bags packed, shoes polished and snacks selected all weekend and were up, showered, breakfasted, dressed and queuing at the door to leave an hour ahead of schedule today. They could not wait to get back to school to see their friends and for a bit of normality.
It’s now very quiet in the Just Add Parsley kitchen!
No one has demanded a snack, hot chocolate, help with polygons or vocab Ninja. A big part of me is missing it and I can’t wait to see them all this evening and hear the excitement of their days. I fully expect they will be shattered!
However, there is a similarly big part of me that has relished the time to clear the decks, plan my menus and my day and to think further than the next meal ahead. It has been such an indulgence to sit with a coffee and browse my recipe books.
Having luxuriated in this indulgence, my menu for this week is:
(1) Chickpea, sweet potato & chorizo
Salads: (£6.50 large/4.50 small)
(1) 2 bean, 2 lime
Add a sous vide cooked chicken breast or salmon steak for £5 or 2 for £9
Tart: (£16 whole/£9 half) Brie, courgette & red pepper
Supper: (£12 for 2, £22 for 4 or £5 per head for more)
Pork in cider with whole grain mustard, apple and a little crème fraîche.
Energy bars (£1.50 each)
Granola (£5.50 for 350g)
Please order in your usual way by 8pm on Tuesday 9th. Everything will be ready for collection or delivery on the afternoon of Thursday 11th or on Friday 12th. Deliveries to Duncombe School or in the Hertford area will be made on the morning of Friday 12th.
Please notify me of any allergies or dietary requirements at the time of ordering.
