Yesterday I sorted out our meals for the week. I am really not wanting to have any food waste and also make things easier for me.
While getting dinner ready, which was a very nice Jamie Oliver chicken dish from his 15 mins meals, I put some beef in the slow cooker for dinner tonight, made sausage casserole and cooked the rest of the sausages to make pasties. I while the oven was on put jacket potatoes in, made tomato soup and chicken chill all for lunches this week.
I even prepped the sweet potato for dinner this morning before I went to work so when I got in just I cooked the veg and thicken the gravy in the slow cooker ready for when I came home after visiting mum.
So this weeks menu plan is..
Mon – Beef, sweet potato mash and veg (enough left over for another two meals now in the freezer)
Tue – FQ Sausage pasties, Jacket potatoes and salad
Wed – Pasta carbonara, garlic bread and salad
Thurs – Tuna steak , roasted veg and rice
Sat – Pizza, wedges and beans
Sun – Roast chicken and all the trimmings
