Bit boring here,
tonight mince, carrot, onion in slow cooker with mash & cabbage,
Tues is big pot of thick ministrone soup and home made bread,
Wednesday will be roast chicken, veg and potatoes. I don't eat meat so will do something different (have boxes of frozen pre made dinners in freezer so likely one of those).
Thursday homemade pizza, potao wedges and salad
Friday haven't a clue!

Tonight: some sort of pasta
Tomorrow: mixed bean chilli
Wednesday: the Sri Lankan chicken curry that's on the homepage atm, but with turkey chunks as that's what I've got in the freezer
Thursday: salmon, noodles and veg
Friday: turkey burgers in a pitta, with potato/sweet potato wedges

Those are all the dinners...lunches tend to be a bit more made up.

Tonight I made pumpkin soup and hummous.
No idea what tomorrow will bring.

TheArmadillo Mon 17-Sep-12 18:15:21

tonight - what originally started as chicken parmigana but has evolved over the last few weeks with a rocket & parmesan salad for me (everyone has their own preferred salad) and part baked baguettes (baked obviously).

the rest of the week in no particular order
chicken curry from hairy dieters book with rice
pork meatballs in tomato based sauce with pasta
carne guisada (latin beef stew with beer - I use guinness which actually works really well and add spinach) and HM oven chips, though it may end up being chicken instead of beef.
burgers, salad and some kind of potato.

I really can't be bothered this week.
