what's for dinner this week?

in lieu of driving myself bonkers, for this friday i'm going to make the dishes that i keep getting requests for. it seems as though the chicken/leek/bacon/broccoli pies were one of the most popular things i've ever made. also the roasted red pepper/tomato/sweet potato soup resulted in a couple of disappointed faces this weekend when i ran out. so i'm going to whip a bunch of 'repeats' fresh for friday - and skip a brand new item, to preserve my sanity (and it probably wouldn't fit in the fridge anyway).

chicken, leek, bacon and broccoli pie - braised chicken with melted leeks, smoked bacon and crisp broccoli, with reduced chicken stock, and a puff pastry lid (fresh for friday)  large $15 small $5

sausage and pepper penne, shani's organic sausages, roasted red peppers, caramelized onions, swiss chard, foxhill cheese curds, parmesan marinara (fresh for friday)  large $15 small $7.50

fishcakes & beans, salt cod, onions, celery, potatoes, savoury, molasses baked beans (the fishcakes will be fresh for friday but the beans are frozen - i made them last week)  $12

quiche lorraine, double smoked bacon, foxhill aged gouda, caramelized onions (fresh for friday) $18

british fish pie, sea bass, arctic char, mussels, haddock - all from the fish shop - creamy mashed potatoes, crunchy veggies (fresh for sunday) large $18 small $9

lobster mac & cheese, leek bechamel, roasted tomatoes, foxhill cheese curds, panko crust $20

shepherd's pie, getaway farm ground beef, peas, corn, cheddar mashed potatoes small $7.50 large $15 (i only have one large left)

corned beef and cabbage (i corned it myself - low salt, no chemicals!), potatoes, carrots, celery root, whole grain mustard, getaway farm beef brisket  $15

rappi pie, shani's farm chicken, sweet williams smoked turkey, caramelized onions, potatoes, salt pork $12 (i only have one left)

roast pork dinner, getaway farm heritage tamworth/berkshire pork, mashed potatoes, gravy, honey roasted carrots $12

spaghetti and meatballs, getaway beef, marinara, foxhill parmesran, basil $10

soups, stews, chowder, chili
$5 each for a 500 ml container - 2 medium servings or 1 ginormous serving

vegan vegetable stew
creamy broccoli & cauliflower
roasted red pepper, tomato & sweet potato
carrot, apple & ginger
curried butternut squash
smooth turnip veloute
french onion, with guinness and parmesan
beet, parsnip & pear
seafood chowder
beef & barley
chunky beef chili

oh dear i was just rifling through the freezer and i'm getting low on butternut squash, chowder, beet, turnip, chili and baked beans (i just made them!) so if you are dead set on any flavour let me know:
leave a blog comment, message on facebook or twitter - i'm also setting up a business e-mail so i'll put that address up soon...

the cheddar and green onion biscuits have been quite popular so i'll make them for both days this week.
snickers brownies
lemon meringue tarts
oatmeal, white chocolate and cranberry cookies
red velvet cupcakes with raspberry cream cheese frosting
vanilla cupcakes with wild blueberry cream cheese frosting
chocolate, coconut macaroons
candy of some sort - probably sponge toffee
and maybe a surprise or two...

all four of the bbq/marinade/stirfry/dipping sauces will be in effect this week - maple bourbon, sesame ginger, chipotle lime, honey mustard
i'd also like to whip up a batch of tomato sauce for pizza & pasta, but that may not happen until next week...
