I have no kitchen for a week, but I have a rough plan.
Tue-Takeaway after Hamlet at our local cinema.
Wednesday-Crisp platter with salad grin
Thursday-Eat out, probably fish and chips
Friday-Baked sweet potatoes done in slow cooker with fillings from shop.

In reality this will probably start and end with pot noodles and tears.
