Your meal plans always sound lovely! What recipe do you use for the dahl?
So far I have:
Tofu with edamame
Veg risotto
Cauliflower curry with JO flatbread
Probably jacket potato as have some pots that need using up

If the weather is as predicted, it may all end up being a week of salad instead.

The Dahl I very much make up, lots of onion, garlic and garam masala and then just chuck whatever else I fancy in, with varying levels of success 😂

Marking my place. We’re “on holiday home” (expats making the annual sojourn back to the U.K.) so mum is cooking and planning then FIL then I have a whole week in London when again other people are cooking or I’m out every day and night

But I love this thread ;)
