Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

Menu for the coming week.

I am aware that some people reading this will be bored out of their minds by this topic, so if you are one of them, just skip this post! I will probably post about other things in the next few days, but right now I have a thing going with Ashleigh over in Holland, who is posting her weekly menu along with some great recipes, as well as links to cooking and recipe websites. I have always loved cooking, ever since I learnt how to cook at tech. school when I started there at 12 years old. We had an exceptional Domestic Arts teacher, who as well as being a fantastic cook, had the knack of making the most mundane item fun to make and delicious to eat. I don't consider myself a very 'good' cook, in that I can easily spoil something by over or under-cooking it by accident, and poor Ken has been known to turn up his nose at some exotic dish that includes something that he doesn't like, but I just had to try out anyway! But I do enjoy mucking around with food, experimenting with tastes and textures described in cookbooks and magazines.
Here is our Menu for this week (it has changed slightly since I posted my forecast menu earlier this week):
Tonight: Cornish Sausages (butcher's special) with Asian Coleslaw.
Friday: Fresh white fish (deep sea Perch) with salad and chips.
Saturday: Roast lamb with potato, parsnip, pumpkin and greens.
Dessert: Mixed Berry Custard slice.
Sunday: Cheese & Spinach Frittata
Monday: Cherry tomato and White bean salad
Tuesday: Asian style Pork Salad with Chilli dressing
Wednesday: Teriyaki Chicken Drumsticks with rice and Bok Choy.

In the unlikely event that you would like one of those recipes, they can be found in the Dec/Jan. issue of Super Food Ideas, which is an Aussie magazine. So if you are overseas, and still want to know about any of them, just leave a message for me and I will email it to you.
