Although I did my meal plan earlier today I’m only getting round to posting this now!
It feels like I blink sometimes and suddenly it’s Monday again and a new plan needs to be written.
Does anyone else dispair sometimes at the fact that children have to be fed EVERY SINGLE DAY…or maybe that’s just me???
Fish Pie. I used a recipe from Jamie Oliver’s Naked Chef book for this. I was attracted by the fact that the fish didn’t need a separated poaching/cooking and therefore cut down on wash up and time. I was worried about how this would go down as I hadn’t cooked a fish pie for the children since those glorious days before they realised that they could reject food! Anyway, it was tolerated but not loved. The sauce was very rich but they ate all the fish out of it and left the sauce behind so not a total disaster. We had spinach and peas and sweetcorn with it.
Lemony Chicken and chorizo traybake, which is a great and very adaptable one treat wonder, you can find the recipe here.
Spaghetti and meatballs, which are batch cooked in the freezer.
Beef and Red Wine Stew, potaotoes, carrots and celery will be cooked in the stew so another one pot dish.
Homemade chicken Kiev with coleslaw and oven chips.
That’s the plan for this week.
A little update on last week, I cooked Neven Maguires Beef Stroggenoff and it was a big hit, even the mushroom hating child loved it, although she still didn’t actually eat any mushroom. It’s definitely going to feature again on our menu.
