Menu planning 6 - 12 February

Well, we pretty much stuck to last week's menu, so hoping to do the same this week.
I'm trying to use what is the freezer first.
Our main challenge at present, is due to the weather in Spain,we don't know how much longer we can get salad. We normally get through 2-3 bags of salad, 2 cucumbers and 2 bunches of spring onions in a week, so it could become quite serious if salad components become unavailable.

Monday - Lemon & pepper crusted salmon, loosely based on this recipe from BBC Good Food
I replaced the breadcrumbs with sesame seeds and ground almonds, and the butter with ghee.

Tuesday - Gammon
Towards the end of last year, we cooked a gammon joint, and then froze the surplus either as slices or salad pieces.

Wednesday - Turkey stroganoff
I use coconut milk instead of the sour cream, as I am still avoiding dairy (and it's less likely to curdle!)

Thursday - Shepherds pie
This contains lots of vegetables, and doesn't ask for strange ingredients!

Friday - some kind of fish dish!

Saturday - Citrus pork chops
I freeze these with the marinade already added, so they marinade as they thaw

Sunday - Amish beef and cabbage skillet
A quick one pan meal!
