It’s been a good week but a busy one – so tough getting used work again after nearly two weeks off! We mostly stuck to the mealplan but ended up making a fry up for dinner last night when I burned the bottom of the planned curry (luckily just at the beginning of the sauce making stage so not TOO much wastage). Just to show that even people who cook all the time have kitchen disasters. Moral of the story: don’t cook while trying to make phone calls and return messages in the other room.
We bought a couple more things last week and did a ‘big shop’ today so I’ll get the spending page updated tomorrow. No time tonight, I’ve been rushing about making lunches for the next few days (noodle soup for me to use up leftover beansprouts, and sausage rolls for Dave for tomorrow to use up leftover sausagemeat).
As usual, FF on the mealplan means I’ve already made it and it’s from the freezer.
Sun 11 – homemade hotdogs (yes I made my own sausages, post to follow on this!)
Mon 12 – Singapore-style noodles with pork mince and prawns
Tues 13 – baked potatoes and veg chilli (FF)
Thurs 15 – soup and bread
Fri 16 – beef tacos (meat filling FF)
Sat 17 – hummous and salad and pittas
For me – porridge with apple or a banana chocolate milkshake
For Dave – cereal (Alpen at the moment) or sausage egg frittatas (if I get round to making them tomorrow night)
At the weekend – I didn’t make pancakes or beans last week so might this week. Bacon roll for Dave usually
For me – noodle soup x3, I have lentil soup in the freezer and have made cheese pastry rolls too for the other days
For Dave – homemade sausage rolls tomorrow, then tuna salad and tuna or ham sandwiches, with tinned fruit
