Egg, chips, beans, bread and butter
Mascarpone tomato sauce & tinned tuna, pasta and home made garlic bread
Beef & Ale, dumplings, cabbage & mash
Me- Vegetable stew
Home made Turkey nuggets, wedges & beans
Hubby- left over beef & ale or left over beef & onion pie
Me & Girls- at parents
Slow cooker chicken casserole, cabbage, mash & Yorkshire puddings
Me- left over vegetable stew, cabbage, mash & Yorkshire puddings
Bought a £2.99 gammon in Aldi which I simmered in a pan of water then roasted in the oven with honey drizzled on top for the last 15 minutes of cooking.
I let this cool then sliced it on my slicing machine. This will do for sandwiches for the clan for the week.
Bought a bottle of ale in Aldi and this is now in the slow cooker with a selection of Aldi 49p veg and some stewing beef I defrosted overnight. Will cook this all day, leave in the fridge tomorrow then eat for tea Wednesday. Stews and casseroles are lovely left a day before eating.
Not looking forward to the cold weather we are due later in the week. Thankfully Hubby got all the loft insulated this year when rolls of insulation were on offer. We should be nice and snug this year. Hubby set timer on the central heating yesterday so prepared for the cold front coming.
