ooo like the thoughts of haddock chowder - smoked haddock is her fav fish smile

coconut rice with omelette strips (prawn crackers and cucumber sticks on the side)

thisone - also liking as dd loves prawn crackers and cucumber - have you got a recipe for cocunut rice - please? or some idea where to look?

I think the tomato sauce and pasta would go down well - do you think the meat balls would hold there heat?

four hours from popping in pot (I always put a little boiling water in to heat pot and leave a little water in the bottom to keep the food wrm)

I like the idea of curry - I wonder if it would work if I put cous cous in the bottom?

i worry about rice and food poisoning... worked in catering to long and it bothers me..

The idea is that we eat in the evening - the following morning I put the other two portions in the flask, me a tupperware as we have a microwave at work, therefroe cooking once and eating twice smile

But only on Monday and tueday night as I don't work past Thursday lunch time and it would make a change for dd2 than having sandwiches all week

off to look at the chicken and cous cous dish smile
