Sleep deprivation continues aplenty so I have few words. We never had the pink peppered mackerel from last week because we took 1stSister and her friend on her Brownie Pack Holiday on Friday evening and we thought we'd better stop at the Golden Arches instead, which was a good call as by the time we were passing there it was 7.30pm, and 2ndSister (age 6) and 3rdSister (age 2) didn't get to sleep until 9pm. Apparently the holiday (a PGL adventure weekend) was brilliant and we were barely missed - but 1stSister didn't eat much of the food, I think she largely survived on the puddings! As such the triumph of my menu planning last week was to schedule sausages, mash, Yorkies & gravy for a late Sunday lunch; I saved two sausages so that when she got back, I could make exhausted 1stSister a hot sausage sandwich with lashings of ketchup before whipping her up to bed, sharpish. The sausage and mash (with carrots and broccoli from the veg box) was the most delicious thing I've eaten all week :-)
Enjoy your week and why not link up a menu at Mrs M's place!
Meat Free Monday: Wholewheat pasta in tomato sauce with parmesan cheese
Tuesday: Chicken in chinese sauce with red pepper, onion, kohlrabi & broccoli & rice, noodles & prawn crackers
Wednesday: Slices of Cola-baked gammon with oven chips, pineapple and fried eggs (the rest to be saved for a Sunday lunch)
Thursday: Chicken salad with the asparagus I will hopefully get in my vegbox today
Fishy Friday: Fish Gratin in cheese sauce with salmon, haddock & smoked haddock served with oven fries
Saturday: Spanish Chicken served with cous cous, bread, chorizo slices, olives & possibly asparagus. This is the only 'Chicken Tonight' product I've really taken to, but I can thoroughly recommend it - fairly authentic to my tastebuds, and I doubt I could make better myself from scratch, so it makes a quick Saturday family supper before movie night nice and easy to do.
Sunday: Roast beef and all the trimmings including cauliflower cheese (with sauce from Friday) if we get cauliflower in the veg box as promised. Summer Berries Cheesecake.
