We had a meal plan and we stuck to it, even with last week being a complete write-off. Shaniah had to stay home last because she had conjunctivitis in both eyes and on Thursday I had a full-blown seizure, which annoyed me as I haven’t had one for the longest time.
Anyway, here’s a recap on last weeks meals.
Monday: Stir Fry.
Shaniah actually decided on Stir fry in the end. It was going really well, I asked her to help me cook and she was saying it looked yummy until I threw in the large variety of vegetables. She turned her nose up at it, refused to cook any longer and she ended up eating something else. Drama queen.
It’s not the healthiest of meals. so of course, my child demolished every last bit.
Wednesday: Butter chicken curry.
Another dish that was loved by all.
Thursday: We changed spaghetti Bolognese to chilli con carne at Shaniah’s request (now there’s a surprise!) This was half eaten, but I did do this late as I had an emergency appointment.
Friday: Sausage Pasta Bake.
Turns out, Shaniah isn’t a fan of pasta anymore – so she had sausages, chips and cucumber. Always the healthy child…
Saturday: Chicken, dauphinoise potatoes and garlicky green beans.
With Shaniah being off ill, we actually went to watch Frozen 2 on Friday (it was brilliant!) So we ate at home. This was actually really welcomed.
Sunday: Bangers and Mash (with onion gravy).
Shaniah is not a fan of mashed potato or even gravy for that matter so she had a sort of sausage roast – without the gravy.
On to this week.
We all love this meal. It’s quick, cheap and easy which is also a massive win for me on a Monday.
Tuesday: Chicken and Bacon potato bake.
I love this dish. I can remember having it as a child in a holiday camp and it’s stayed my favourite dish ever since – I just wish they’d have given me their chocolate fudge cake recipe!
Wednesday: Paprika chicken with spicy rice and chips.
Love this dish, again super quick and easy.
Thursday: Bolognese with garlic bread.
I really wanted this last week but Shaniah had over plans. I am determined to get my way though!
Friday: Fish fingers, potato wedges and veg.
Some days frozen food is a must to save my sanity. Today is one of those days.
Saturday: Fish in parsley sauce with mashed potato and peas.
Nice and simple, I like it.
Sunday: Elf welcome party.
Say no more.
