w/c Monday 6 July 2020
Last week of term in our family this week so, even though the sun seems to have disappeared for now, I am looking forward to the summer holidays and maybe a bit more time to enjoy a picnic in the garden (or even the park!).
We’ve also been fruit picking in our kitchen garden and already I have made 42 (yes, 42!) jars of redcurrant jelly (and I’m only half way there!).
I have also used the blackcurrants, white currants, raspberries, loganberries & tayberries to make a delicious and zingy fruit compote which is amazing with yoghurt and granola for a luxurious breakfast or cream & meringue as an indulgent dessert.
So with all this in mind, this week’s menu is a little different. No soup this week because you wouldn’t really take soup on a picnic.
(1) Tuna Niçoise – a classic and a meal in itself;
(2) Caprèse – simply delicious combination of Green Tye tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella and home grown basil; and
(3) a zingy salad of baby new potatoes, soured cream, orange & lemon zest, capers, gherkins and mustard.
Sausage Rolls: (£3 each) you can’t have a picnic without homemade sausage rolls!
Main course: (£12 for 2, £22 for 4 and £5 ph for more) chicken breast or salmon fillet marinated in homemade sweet chilli jam, cooked sous vide and served with a salad of pink grapefruit, avocado, cashew nuts, leaves and a harissa dressing..
Quiche: (£25 (serves 6), individual quiche £5)
(1) bacon & mature cheddar
(2) smoked haddock, home grown spinach and gruyère.
Ice creams/sorbets: (£10 per 750ml tub)
Strawberries & cream ice cream
Pimms sorbet (with orange, cucumber & mint)
Frosé sorbet (rosé wine, strawberries and a hint of lemon)
Berry compote: (£7 per jar)
Redcurrant jelly: (£7 per jar)
