So, if that was an Easter break, we’ve had it! I don’t know if it went by in a flash because I was only able to get a couple of days off or if in fact time did actually speed up a bit. Either way, the kids are both back at school and we are back into a (sort of) routine! Hurrah!
I am trying to avoid takeaways for the next few months and gravitate towards healthier options. It could go either way to be honest.. As well as eating slightly more healthily I am hoping it will help me save a bit of money.
Tesco have started doing their summer BBQ style food which I love. I bought a pack of jumbo sausages this week and I am hoping they haven’t changed the recipe from last year because they were pretty good and you get lots in a pack! I still have a fair bit in the freezer so you can fully expect a fair few odd looking meals over the next few weeks as I work through what we have!
This week in food
Monday – Sausages with dauphinoise potatoes and broccoli
Tuesday – Jerk chicken (it isn’t really, it is just chicken with a bit of Tesco seasoning on it) with fried plantain, a jacket potato, fresh tomato and coleslaw
Wednesday – Spaghetti and meatballs (made from the rest of the sausages)
Thursday – Fish with roasted vegetables
Friday – Hoisin pork belly stir fried with peppers, onions and whatever else I find in the fridge served with egg noodles
Saturday – Lamb koftas with flatbread, homemade dip (natural yoghurt, a little bit of mint sauce and finely chopped cucumber) and a greek salad
Sunday – Pie and mash with veg
Ps. I usually link this meal plan up with Katy from katykicker.com but she is off bringing new life into the world this week!
