Derby - the pasta recipe is:

steam spinach (frozen or fresh), add some creme fraiche & some pine nuts, stir together.
serve with loads of parmesan

sorry I don't really have any measurements.

It turns out the feta cigars were actually camembert cigars:

Girls have cooked dinner at school each day so we vary things a bit in the holidays

coldethyl Sun 17-Mar-13 07:48:16

Sunday - roast belly pork, roast potatoes, roast cauliflower with cream, peas, carrots, gravy, crackling, wheelbarrow to get home in etc etc
Monday - fish (salmon for us, salmon fishcakes for children), mixed veg
Tuesday - stuffed pasta and tomato sauce (needs to be quick, swimming / dancing night)
Wednesday - chicken. Not sure how to serve it yet, possibly in a pie.
Thursday - shepherds pie (already in the freezer from last week) and baked beans/peas - I have a long day and won't have time to cook.
Friday - pasta (courgette / carrot / leek ribbons for us), smoked salmon & creme fraiche sauce with peas
Saturday - sausage inna bun (DS2's birthday party. There will be 9 children here for tea. Erk.). Jammy dodgers. Birthday cake. Possibly a few token grapes for balance. Ketchup is vegetable, yes?

Which reminds me, I must get the pork in - 9 for lunch today too and the joint is almost too large for the pan. Going to roast it a la Frank above and hope for the best.
