I got my Tesco delivery today instead of the usual Sunday, because we spent yesterday having a lovely afternoon with my parents, my sister and her fiancé. I’m not that happy with our delivery actually – it was an hour late (to be fair, this is pretty unusual) and the 50g bag of cumin you’ll see below was advertised as being 100g (it says this on my receipt too so I am going to complain).
Apart from this I had a good day, taking advantage of the bank holiday and getting organised for the week:
Looking at my mealplan below for this week, it’s obvious that it’s just post-payday – all the meals will work out quite pricey, with main ingredients like halloumi, steak and free-range chicken. I think we were both in need of some treats though after eating out of the cupboards and freezers all of last week!
Sun 26 – dinner at my parents’ house
Mon 27 – garlic chilli vegetable curry with homemade naans and riata
Tues 28 – sliced griddled steak, ratatouille and potatoes
Wed 29 – halloumi and vegetable kebabs with salad and rice salad
Thurs 30 – tomato and mascarpone pasta with roasted vegetables
Fri 31 – pizzas with salad
Sat 1 – southern fried chicken with corn on the cob, chips and salad
