I didn’t do my usual Sunday cooking yesterday – but luckily I was off work for a local holiday today, so I got it all done in the end. Actually, I did even more than usual. Since I’m tired from all the cooking, I’ll tell the story in pictures:
Homemade natural yoghurt with banana and honey (keep your eyes out for the method later on in the week!).
Loaf of seeded brown bread.
Six brown rolls.
Six portions of lentil and tomato soup.
Six portions of the mince mix for mince and tatties/cottage pie (had two tonight for dinner with mash)
Eight white wraps.
Sun 29 – baked potatoes (mine with tuna & sweetcorn, Dave’s with homemade baked beans from the freezer)
Mon 30 – mince & tatties (recipe later this week)
Tues 1 – vegetable fajitas
Wed 2 – squash and chickpea curry with rice
Thurs 3 – spicy prawn spaghetti with salad
Fri 4 – sticky Asian turkey with stirfried veg and rice
Sat 5 – chestnut, blue cheese and beer puff pastry pie with veg and potatoes
