Yesterday was the twins 5th birthday. Unfortunately it did not go to plan as Little I was not very well. So we did not manage to get to the cinema as planned but we did get the hubby home in the afternoon so that did make up for it.
This week the children are on their half term holiday which makes meal times even more manic. When they are at school I have a bit more time to plan and cook so with this in mind I decided to focus on recipes that are perfect for a mid week meal. All of the recipes that I have chosen from week 7 of CookBlogShare are meals that the whole family would love and perfect for a busy evening.
Here are my 4 favourite recipes from week 7 of #CookBlogShare...
The next recipe, from A Strong Coffee, features a mixture of Mediterranean flavours. Pesto from Italy, manchego from Spain, garlic, olives, sun dried tomatoes and the fantastically versatile courgette! This Courgetti with Pesto and Manchego is the perfect way to get extra vegetables into your diet. Spiralizers are a great addition to any kitchen and this post will tell you all about one that they have been trying there!
The following recipe features yet more pesto. The Veg Space shared this Wholewheat Tagliatelle with Rocket and Hazelnut Pesto a dish that is simple yet so full of flavour. That is what makes pesto such an amazing ingredient, it adds so much flavour in such an easy way to any dish. The peppery flavours from the rocket will simply finish this pasta to perfection!
Last but not least is this Leek Cauliflower Butterbean Freekah Salad with Sumac from Sneaky Veg. Freekah is a delicious ingredient that really is not used enough in my opinion. The green wheat adds a lovely nutty flavour to dishes and makes a great addition to both hot and cold salads. After reading this recipe I need to get some more on my next shopping trip!
