Tues is meant to be a cheap and usey uppey day. Don't really want to go to the shop, especially not for anything expensive like meat. It needs to feed me and two dc. I'm normally good at thinking of usey up ideas but my mind is blank.

Tomorrow I'm doing a lamb, apricot and chickpea tagine.

Macaroni cheese, or cauli and macaroni cheese. Use the cream in the sauce and put sliced tomatoes and parmesan on the top. Serve with peas and spinach.
