Monday night dinner
24 October 2016
Tony's friend Emma had us round for dinner last Monday and it was a relaxing way to start the week. She made a spicy puttanesca, a salad with cheese and served up a plate of chewy almond biscuits and dark chocolate for dessert. Her theory was that Monday night dinners help make the weekend last that little bit longer.
We do most of our entertaining on a Saturday night, when we've had time to tidy up the house, do the shopping and some meal prep. But I really love the idea of simpler meals on weeknights, when everyone's feeling fresh.
The other week I borrowed a trick from my friend Mayaan and ordered a big Turkish feast when our friends Sean and Jill were visiting from Sydney. It made for a really unfussy Friday night dinner, with plenty of leftovers for the long weekend.
