had to make some changes, but so far,

yesterday made some bbq sauce and put on chicken wings, (as r very cheap) with new potatos and corn on the cob, and salad.

today. macroni cheese with mushroom , onions and bacon.

slow roasted chicken with olive oil and garlic, served with warm crusty bread and salad.

oven baked fish (on offer of course) with veg rissoto.

veggie curry and brown rice.
for kids who hate curry, pizza and oven chips.

am really finding it difficult to think of different meals to cook, and am getting fed up with the cost of feeding a family of 6, with 4 teens!

would love to see anyones ideas for more interesting meals!
