March Just Flew By

Oh my goodness, I can not believe how quickly March came and went, it literally disappeared before my eyes. I haven't even begun to do half the things I wanted to but I have tried not to dwell on that seen as its been a very stressful month.

My goals for March were:

I managed to eat the ones in red!

Eating seasonally: So the foods in season in March, that I would probably eat, consist of:
  • Carrots, Cauliflower, Kale, Leeks, Purple Sprouting Broccoli, Rhubarb, Parsnips, Spring Onions and Spring Green Cabbage.
  • Bananas, Blood Oranges, Kiwis, Pineapple, Mango and Apricot.
  • Rabbit, Turkey and Spring Lamb (not sure about Rabbit to be honest).
  • Sole, Eel, Hake, Lobster, Mussels, Salmon, Scallops, Shrimp, Mackerel, Crab and Sardine.
I found a few recipes that are seasonal to March that I am hoping to try this month:
  • La Potee (French Farmhouse Soup with Bacon, Sausage and Beans)
  • Carrot and Coriander Soup
  • Mussels with Garlic Stuffing
  • Chinese Stir-fried Prawns with Purple Sprouting Broccoli and Cashews
  • Chicken Baked with 30 Cloves of Garlic
  • Spanish Pork Stew with Potatoes and Chorizo
  • Penne with Leeks and Bacon
  • Pile-it high Orange and Rhubarb Meringue Pie
  • Salmon Coulibiac
  • Traditional Lancashire Hotpot

Go on 1 date night - Funds just did not permit this one.

Plant some herbs - I nearly did this but didn't want to kill them.

Finally decorate my toilet room
- I made a start on this so I'm crossing it off

I am going to roll some of these over to April!!!
