Because this is the week that M-Little’s nursery lunch menu consists of 90% pasta:
Mon: vegetable risotto
Tue: lasagna alla bolognese = pasta
Wed: lentil soup with mini-pasta
Thu: pasta with pesto
Fri: pasta with olive oil & cheese
That. is a lot of. PASTA.
Although he definitely won’t complain about the pasta-deluge, I do feel the need to remind my British-Belgian-Brazilian child that variety is a good thing. That choosing olives over chocolate may result in his Belgian passport being confiscated, and don’t even get me started on his refusal to eat digestive biscuits.
Fortunately he is as mango-obsessed as his Brazilian dad, but still (brace yourselves):
There is no pasta in this week’s Pasta & Patchwork’s meal plan.
Instead we are having:
savoy cabbage, chicken & provolone involtini + potatoes (this fell off the menu last week to make way for pizza…)
yellow courgette soup, with flowers on top
chickpea za’atar salad
Pea, garlic & ham soup
