It’s been a busy week – we had a Hallowe’en party to prepare for so spent half the week cleaning, decorating and pumpkin-carving.
We relied mainly on home made ‘ready meals’ from the freezer so I was really looking forward to getting back to some proper cooking this week. Dave’s off work to use up some annual leave and get his Christmas shopping done, so he’s going to cook a meal or two as well. I’m planning on making the burritos though, as I want to blog the recipe!
We’re a little ahead of where I’d like to be at this point in the month – but we’ve stocked up on loads of stuff over the last few weeks, so I think we should be OK. Definitely eating out of the freezer next week as it;s somehow ended up full again after making a big batch of chilli and soup today, and cooking up a pot of black beans too.
Sun 3 – veggie chilli with tortilla chips and cheese (made a big batch of chilli for later this week)
Mon 4 – battered haddock with homemade chips, peas & sweetcorn
Tues 5 – meat lasagne (made by Dave) with salad
Wed 6 – vegetable pakora with salad (been meaning to make this for a couple of weeks, but haven’t been able to find gram/besan flour in any of the supermarkets! Will get Dave to head up to the local ethnic grocers this week)
Thurs 7 – veggie chilli on baked potatoes with salad
Fri 8 – dhal with spiced cauliflower and rice
Sat 9 – pork and black bean burritos with salad
