This week has been the week from hell workwise. All of my half-days - Wednesday afternoon, Friday afternoon AND Saturday morning - disappeared as unpaid overtime due to the school's open day so I've had no time to do anything around the house, and that includes washing. I have a huge pile waiting for me tomorrow - in fact, I'm not sure what my biggest pile is, washing or marking. *sigh*
This week, I therefore didn't have time to do my menu planning before Madhouse Daddy Mike did the weekly shop (he usually gets a shopping list with everything I'll need) so it'll be a case of using up whatever's in.
lunch - McDonald's - I'll be straight out of school open day and won't have time to cook.
dinner - Madhouse Daddy' Mike's vegetable soup
lunch - roast dinner, either chicken or lamb (we have both in the freezer) with roast potatoes or maybe rice and vegetables depending on what we get in our veg box
dinner - sandwiches or soup, if anyone's hungry
dinner - Chinese special fried rice, using up the leftover meat and veg from yesterday's roast
dinner - fish pie (if there's some fish in the freezer) or smoked mackerel with boiled potatoes and vegetables - or possibly something more exciting if I manage to find a recipe online using smoked mackerel
dinner - red cabbage will be the main ingredient, possibly with apple and onion, and some meat from the freezer, possibly cooked in the slow cooker
dinner - pasta with a tomato-based sauce of some description - I may use up a jar from the cupboard and sneak in loads of extra veggies
So what are you eating next week?
