The bags smell lovely and earthy tonight and those mushrooms look delicious! I’m pleased to see plenty of pears too, so poached pears with chocolate sauce and ice cream will definitely feature this week as a recipe. I also fancy a retro melon and prosciutto starter; very popular with both the babies!
The mushrooms are either going into a mushroom barley bake, or will be wiped, stalk trimmed and dipped in garlicky egg, then breadcrumbs and shallow fried in hot groundnut oil. Yummy with some thick herby greek yoghurt (oh alright then, or garlic mayonnaise!). The butternut squash will be stuffed, and I’m going to bake the beetroot at the same time, for a beetroot, feta and red onion salad later in the week. The spinach will probably be curried along with the potatoes and carrots. I’m getting very hungry now: I just have to decide which one is for supper!
