Our attempts at meal planning this week have not been a raring success. Don't get me wrong, the meals we have cooked have all been great but they have not necessarily been the meals that we had planned to eat. Today was no exception to this trend and I am happy to take full responsibility for the forced change of plan.
As it's the weekend and the weather wasn't too bad, I thought it would be nice for us to go out for lunch. We wandered down to the Midnight Bell ready to tuck into some of their delicious sandwiches. It wasn't until we got there that we remembered that it was Sunday and therefore only the Sunday menu was on offer. It was a main meal or a dejected walk home so we sat down and ordered more food than we had bargained for. I had fish and chips, Z had a chicken and mushroom pie and R had everything that was within his reach. The food was really nice but it put the kibosh on roast pork with all the trimmings.
Unfortunately, we had already defrosted the joint of pork so we had to cook it, but there was no way that we were going to sit down to a second stomach-bursting meal in one day. Instead we made a light miso broth with fresh vegetables, udon noodles and some of the roasted pork. One of these days I'll plan a meal and actually cook it, but until then I'll just keep enjoying the food we cook.
