We're away for half term but self catering so I'm trying to plan things that I can make in mass quantities for unadventurous extended family in an under stocked holiday let!! (I always do the cooking so I can escape to the kitchen, and don't have to wash up...)

Sun: roast pork, apple sauce, roasties, spring greens
Mon: crab linguini
Tues: butter bean stew with avocado, feta and tortilla chips
Weds: orecchiette with white wine, sausage and broccoli
Thurs: chicken, chorizo & potato tray bake, garlic bread, salad
Fri: I will insist on dinner out, or a takeaway!!!

Just about to do mine.....🤔

Yay there you are! Need some inspiration this week

Monday: vegan burger for vegans and pulled pork for omnis, green bean and potato salad, grilled mushrooms, grilled aubergine, corn on the Cobb
Tuesday: dirty midnight chips at the local after the cinema
Wednesday: spaghetti squash with pesto and broccoli
Thursday: dunno yet, need to use up all perishables before we go away for the weekend. Craving Cajun rice with tempeh
Friday/Saturday: camping with a big group of friends so imagine bbq stuff
Sunday: Thai takeaway to pick up on the way home!

purpledaisies just looked at your white chilli recipe - it looks lush! Might make that Thursday

Babybearsporij Mon 28-May-18 07:08:21

Purple that white chilli looks amazing!

It's DC1's birthday today so we'll be eating MIL's homemade authentic Greek spanakopitta with salads & things made by me and my attempt at a unicorn cake (white chocolate & fudge flavour) for pudding.

Turkey meatballs & homemade baked beans
homemade vegetable burgers & tomato salsa
lentil, roasted carrot & feta salad
pork roast
five spice beef & sugar snap noodles
brunswick stew

Yesterday was Greek butter beans with tzatziki and pita bread

Tonight will be pancakes with Greek yoghurt, berries and honey (pudding for tea!) in order to use stuff up

PurpleDaisies - I've been meaning to make that white chilli for ages. You've inspired me to add it to the list for next week. smile

I think this week is going to look like:

Monday: mushroom and lentil spag bog
Tuesday: instapot lasagne soup
Wednesday: I’m out so DC can have old faithful pasta pesto
Thursday: deciding between the white chilli and build your own salad bar (it’s a lot of legumes this week if we do the chilli!)
Friday: sausage hot pot (got these AMAZING vegan sausages, don’t want to do potatoes, anyone got a good review of idea fornsausages that’s a bit summery?!)

BiddyPop Tue 05-Jun-18 09:38:16

Sunday we BBQ'd - steak and chicken wings, with some roasted baby potatoes and BBQ'd veggies.
Yesterday, we had bacon and cabbage with mashed potato.
Tonight is chicken enchiladas
Tomorrow is mushroom risotto
Thursday: DD is pasta bake, while I am lamb chop, cauliflower cheese and leftover mash
Friday - no clue yet, possibly takeaway of some sort or a BBQ

I am trying to use up odds and sods from the freezer, and the older jars from the cupboards. Slowly getting there. But it's a challenge to get DH and DD to accept some things in the heat.

So wish my ds would try some of these things! He is so fussy....

DeliveredByKiki Tue 05-Jun-18 14:59:01

bestbefore my DD doesn’t eat half the interesting stuff I make. I don’t fight it - she gets a little to try and if she insists she doesn’t like it she gets bread and butter, sardines and frozen peas!

bestbefore Tue 05-Jun-18 18:11:08

I am inspired to try some new variations this week; he is 12 and it's so depressing planning everything around what he will eat/ won't eat! I have tried so hard!!

DeliveredByKiki Wed 06-Jun-18 07:22:12

I feel your pain bestbefore I tried the Getting the Little Blighters to Eat book on DD and it did work for a while, also doing gardening class finally encouraged her to try veggies (her teacher was a forager more than a gardner!) but now I just do mostly meals I know she'll eat and then don't bother suiting her and giving her the basic nutrients in the food she'll eat....DS will at least try everything!
