What would you make for dinner? I am toying with a takeaway but remember its only Wednesday. I do have cleaning to do too so don't want to spend too much time cooking.

I also really fancy a Morrisons salad bar with all the unhealthy stuff on!

Inspire me.

I wouldn't bother.

Beans on toast

Nandos (the sauce you can buy) chicken and chips with coleslaw! My kids don't like spicey stuff so I never get to either.

Dementedswan Wed 03-Apr-19 15:25:36

Chicken fajitas and a beer, followed by starfishing in bed with a good book knowing I'll wake up to a still clean and tidy house.

Nandos (the sauce you can buy) chicken and chips with coleslaw Mmm that sounds on the right track

if I could I'd choose the Morrisons salad bar every time, with loads of pasta on (unfortunately there's no Morrisons near me and I don't drive) and I'd eat it in bed with a cup of tea, hot water bottle and my usual serial killer inspired TV documentary, then hibernate. Bliss.

Salmon in oven with loads of cherry tomatos, salt and some chilli with rice. Glass of wine to celebrate no bedtime/ bath time/homework/stories etc.

Early night with large cup of herbal tea and Netflix smile

My partner doesn’t like fish so I would binge on smoked mackerel pate while he’s away!

CalmDownPacino Wed 03-Apr-19 15:47:24

A pizza and a bottle of wine.

Last weekend I had a packet of microwave rice one night and some hash browns the other.

PandaCat Wed 03-Apr-19 15:49:56

A ready meal, curry or pasta bake.

I hate preparing food for just myself so I will usually have something I can just pop in the oven.

Eliza9919 Wed 03-Apr-19 15:50:40

Takeaway or drive-thru
Something that just goes in the oven from M&S
Oven pizza or chicken wings
General junk; crisps, chocolate, supernoodles, beige oven stuff.

In that order of preference.

Portobello mushroom risotto from "cook". I love risotto but husband doesn't so I can't be arsed to cook it just for me, it takes so long!

Dominos pizza & cookies. Delivered so I didn’t have to go out.

Then cups of tea and chocolate after if I had much room left.

A Thai red curry with proper paste. Takes about 7 mins. Use up the bits of veg and get a chance to eat some before the gannets get it the next day ! Then all I have to do is rice in rice cooker - 2 days of cooking for less than ten mins . Bonus.

Ihavealwaysknown Wed 03-Apr-19 16:09:22

Pizza! DH doesn’t like pizza (freak) and I’m lazy 😂

iklboo Wed 03-Apr-19 16:09:34

Big ploughman's lunch type thing - crusty bread, butter, pate, cheese, pickled onions, posh crisps, charcuterie meats and a nice bottle of chilled white wine.

ScreamScreamIceCream Wed 03-Apr-19 16:09:48

Ohhh curry chip butties...

TooManyBiscuitsNotEnoughTea Wed 03-Apr-19 16:11:52

This all sounds so good! I think I'm gonna go for the salad bar, I hope its fully stocked!

BlueMerchant Wed 03-Apr-19 16:14:42

Salad bar and a create your own pizza.

keenwasalad Wed 03-Apr-19 16:15:42

I'd get a takeaway. Sod the fact it's only Wednesday. Then I'd throw all the leftovers in a frying pan and have for breakfast YUMMMM

Sunhill4 Wed 03-Apr-19 16:18:53

Fish and chips from chip shop
