Chicken kiev (shop bought), mini roasties and cabbage/leeks and peas. Easy and there will not be a scrap of waste. Well, maybe a bit of cabbage on the kids' plates ......

get veg

ouryve Mon 14-Jan-13 16:21:13

Hardly inspiring. Naice sausages, chips made in my actifry, baked beans (probably the posh ones with all different beans in if we still have some), mushrooms (for me, no one else likes them on their own) and cherry tomatoes (for DS1, who likes neither mushrooms nor baked beans)

I'm hormonal, achy and clumsy and not up to anything more challenging.

Pork Tagine - Pork from the freezer, canned chickpeas, carrots, onions, lots of spice and some green olives left over from a dinner party at the weekend.

Chicken breast stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon, cauliflower mash and green beans cooked in butter.

Another one low carbing!

Spicy noodle soup with prawns and loads of asian veg

DoItToJulia Mon 14-Jan-13 16:23:23

Random question mark appeared in that post!

CMP69 Spain Mon 14-Jan-13 16:23:30

DH/DS2 are having vegetable bake. I haven't been doing a very good job of using the veg in my veg box, so tonight is potatoes, cauliflower, onions, peppers and carrots, in a cheese sauce, baked until the top is golden.

I'm low carbing, so that's out for me. Instead, I'm having roast breast of lamb, with a green salad.

Mintyy Mon 14-Jan-13 16:27:27

Ooooh I really wish I could make spicy noodle soup. Asian soups are an area of cooking that I'm sadly lacking in ... I just fear anything I attempted would turn out downright nasty!

belleat40 Mon 14-Jan-13 16:29:18

Leftover cheese sauce with brocolli, cauliflower and peas with pasta for kids. Plus some dough balls.
Leftover pork for me and DH with peppers, onion and mushroom and spicy tomato sauce with rice.
Yum!

DoItToJulia Mon 14-Jan-13 16:29:46

Recipe please, is it a clear broth type thing, like a wagamama saien soba?

DancingInTheMoonlight Mon 14-Jan-13 16:32:04

Slow cooked leg of lamb left overs from yesterday with cauliflower, green beans and carrot and Swede

Naoko Mon 14-Jan-13 16:32:11

Curly kale and potato mash with sausages. Good oldfashioned Dutch winter food. I've been freezing my tits off all day so I want something warm and filling and comforting.

Pascha Mon 14-Jan-13 16:43:38

spag bog. Sorry. No ideas here.

ihearsounds Mon 14-Jan-13 16:44:56

Orange chicken, broccoli and pasta. Sounds odd, yes I know but it really is scrummy.
Salmon and salad tomorrow.
Curry wednesday.
Skewers and salad on thurday.
Friday meat and lentil bake which I shall also have on Saturday.
Sunday couscous.

Meatballs and pasta! Maybe some homemade ice cream for pud, if I can be bothered making it!
