It’s been a while since I’ve meal planned, but gosh I’ve missed it! It makes me accountable, it makes me think more about what we already have in the cupboards and freezer and such it means we waste less food. Oh, and we’ve had so many days, especially when I’ve been at work and I have hastily reached for the nearest edible thing (we had crisps and apples the other week).
Monday – Rice and lentils. I’ve posted about this before and now it has become a Monday night staple as Betsy gets ready for her gymnastics class. Tonight we had this with a hard boiled egg and broccoli.
Tuesday – Slowcooked pumpkin and chickpea curry, because it’s halloween, obviously. But chances are the kiddos will just be eating sweets.
Wednesday – Cheese omelette and peas
Thursday – Fish fingers and beans
Friday – Aubergine with lentils and basil. This recipie comes from Nigel Slater’s new book, The Christmas Chronicles. I am LOVING this book. I’d argue that it’s less about Christmas and more about eating well throughout winter. It’s a comforting book and I can’t stop reading it and I’m going to have to try everything in there.
What are you cooking this week?
