Be-Ro Baking, Scottish Seafood, Italian Peppers
and Picnic Pies for my
Monday Meal Plan
I missed last week, nobody said anything to me, so I let it slide, but I FORGOT to post my Monday Meal Plan last week and when I realised, it was Wednesday and too late! Our social life is to blame – it’s FEAST or FAMINE! One month you hardly see anyone, and the next month you’re invited out two or three times a week as well as having friend’s over……as we have done for the last two weeks, along with village fêtes and village BBQ’s, it’s been all go on the “dining out and getting fatter” front…..but here I am with a Meal Plan for Monday and with lots of NEW recipes, all of them being seasonal and summery to boot! Look out for mirabelles (yellow plums) from my garden, tomatoes and peppers from my potager as well as picnic pies and some FABULOUS Scottish seafood too…..it’s a great week to showcase easy and mostly meat-free recipes, as well as some lovely old-fashioned baking too! So, I won’t keep you a moment longer, and oh yes, as I FORGOT to post my Sunday Patchwork of Recipes yesterday too, I will add a small one at the end of the post…..have a GREAT week! Karen.
NB: With thanks to Mrs M who hosts the Meal Planning Monday platform – where I link up to when I remember to post my plan!

I’ve seen some beautiful mirabelles in the markets here so I’m really looking forward to your recipe later this week, hope your having a great summer, daughter & husband off ‘crabbing’ with cousins so I’m having too minutes sit down, before I return to more jam making 🙂 Jude x. PS I do love summer
I am lucky enough to have a tree Jude, if I manage to come up, I will bring you some – may be hard to fit it in now, as my sister is coming over at the weekend, last minute plan! Karen xx
What a great idea to bake your way through the Bero books. The one I remember from my Mum’s kitchen is the one with the script handwriting, I used to make up funny words from the titles and have my mum in stitches. I don’t have a copy so will be interested to see what you are baking.
Thanks Janice, for those who want to bake along, I will email the recipe a week beforehand, so I can email you every week with NO pressure to bake, it is JUST a casual linky for those who want to bake along with me! I HAVE one of those old one with the script titles, maybe we can do that too, make up funny words! Karen
Yummy gorgeous as ever, coming over to your website is always a pleasure and I always end up feeling very hungry for something totally gorgeous 🙂
I love stuffed peppers but yours do look extremely lovely! I remember making sausage plait at school and I keep meaning to make it for my lot!!! I have to give it a miss because of the gluten thing (!) which is why I probably haven’t got around to making it!!!
Have a great week, have just finished my supper so why oh why has your site made be hungry again 🙂
Thanks Ali – when I post the sausage plait recipe, could you use GF flour maybe? My stuffed pepper recipe is also GF too, no breadcrumbs and all cheese and vegetables! 🙂 Karen
Ooh delicious recipes here . I have come to realise that I need to meal plan too – your plan looks great, I shall be checking back
Thanks Nazima, let me know if you start one up!

Yum yum I made stuffed peppers too, such a versatile recipe. Loving the Be-Ro retro cookery books!
I adore stuffed peppers, and especially meat and rice free ones, which, these are, recipe to follow…Thanks Ren! xx
Looks Yum, bought a huge bag of small peps from Lewisham market these little Italian babies will do the trick nicely- can’t wait for the recipe – Italian must be flavour of the month, I have sent a Sicilian pie recipe to Kate for TTT S/x
Thanks Solange, recipe is being posted this week! THANKS for your TTT entry too – I will be over to read it later!
Sounds delicious and those pictures are gorgeous! I definitely like the sound (and look) of that sausage plait!
Thanks! The recipe for that is being posted later today!

I love those Be-Ro recipe books – I only have a couple of them myself but almost all my everyday baking is done from them. But I don’t think I’ll be joining the link up when it starts because since finding out I was diabetic I’ve given up sugar completely (I find that so much easier than trying to balance the amount I eat) and have very limited amounts of the white flour and fats that lovely baking uses. I’ll still enjoy seeing what others bake though!
Thanks Jane – it will just be a weekly link up for those who can and do bake something, nothing too formal! I am glad you will enjoy the bakes from the side lines though!

I just love the idea of eggs in pepper – loos so gorgeous!

This sounds so good, I havent made stuff peppers for ages & never thought of using seafood.
This is frustrating already!!! I asked for the Scottish Seafood Italian Stuffed Red Peppers recipe two times and to no avail I have not heard back from you. Do you or do you not have the recipe?
