DILL SALMON LOAF with Piquant Yoghurt Sauce

With Christmas on the horizon I’m starting to look for recipes that will work on the big day. I think this salmon loaf would make a great starter.  You could make it the day before and serve it cold with the yoghurt sauce and a light salad.

MINESTRONE WITH BACON

This is another of my minestrone soup recipes.  It differs from the other one in just a few small ways.  It has potato, cabbage and Haricot beans and also less pasta, but the same rule applies about making it up to the marked area before adding the pasta. Either version works really well.

 

CLASSIC MINESTRONE

I’m deviating from Mum’s recipes this week because I made a pot of this minestrone soup for my family last Sunday and everyone said I should add the recipe to the collection.  I always make it the day before up to the marked area, then reheat it the next day and add the pasta.  If you add the pasta too early it can get a bit gluggy.

LAMB BARLEY SOUP

It might put you off that this old recipe because it starts off “Place the barley in a large bowl.  Cover with water; soak overnight”.  But if you be bothered doing it the barley will make the soup delicious and when you add in the lamb and vegetables you’ll end up with a very hearty and warming winter dish.
