I've got to go to the butchers today to pick up our meat for next week (nothing posh tho, it's 3 packs for a tenner mix-and-match lol) and then I'll finish planning.

Tonight is chicken Pho with stock and chicken I cooked already, then last night I made a batch of meat sauce (red tomato pasta sauce flavoured with mince) as I had half a pack of mince to use up. Haven't decided if we'll have it tomorrow or if not I'll pop it in the freezer today... depends on the weather as I fancy a BBQ this weekend!

I'm trying out only eating fish and no other meat. We're out all weekend so starting Monday...

Mon - tortillas toasties filled with spiced butternut mash, halloumi, roast veg and aubergine pickle (a new invention last wee which was delicious) plus salad and corn on the cob.

Tues - white bean chilli (a fav Simon rimmer recipe) with rice

Weds - spicy tomato pasta with roasted veg

Thurs - cauliflower curry

Fri - fish and chips probably from the chippy (if not, the freezer!).

Lunches will be soups from the freezer. I think I've got spicy sweet corn and a celery and potato one that have been there for a while.

Mainly soup and ice lollies as dd has just got her tongue pierced!
I'll just bodge together bits and bobs for me until she can eat properly.

That's as far as I've got, lacking inspiration this week

PumpkinSpiceEverything Mon 17-Jul-17 16:32:26

Monday (today): Thai pineapple fried rice with cashews and lots of veg

Tuesday: tuna burgers with sriracha mayo & cress, garlic & paprika baked potato wedges

Wednesday: roasted red pepper risotto with spinach

...and that's as far as I've gotten!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Mon 17-Jul-17 18:08:22

Pumpkin - The pineapple rice sounds lovely. Any chance of a recipe?

PumpkinSpiceEverything Mon 17-Jul-17 18:31:13

Honestly I just wing it! Start by pre-cooking the rice, obviously lol. Then I chuck a bunch of veggies into the wok - usually spring onion, peppers, chillis, bean sprouts, cut up carrots, green beans (cut into 1/3rds)... maybe some bok choy if i find it reduced and splurge... baby corns etc

Fry on high heat for a couple of minutes, then toss in the rice, cut up pineapple and some cashew nuts, sesame oil and soy sauce, maybe a bit of sweet chili sauce as well (I just taste it and keep adjusting till it's right)

Finally garnish with some coriander and maybe sesame seeds or more spring onion.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Mon 17-Jul-17 18:50:01

Sounds lovely. Do you put the rice in when hot, or cool it down first?

PumpkinSpiceEverything Mon 17-Jul-17 20:29:39

Usually cooled off a bit, but that's just because I make it well in advance (DD eats dinner much earlier than DH and I)

Here's a photo of the finished product!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Tue 18-Jul-17 17:48:23

Thanks. Looks great.
