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...)

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

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

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
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
five spice beef & sugar snap noodles
We’ve just done ours too (fun Bank Holiday activities...)
Tues- We’re out so something quick on the way home

Thurs- Leek linguine with spiced butter
Fri- Chorizo burgers
Sat- Tikka Massala
Sun- MILs for a roast!
Mon - M&S Curry feast
Tues - HM Lasagne
Wed - Bacon and cabbage
Thurs - no idea yet, raid the fridge for leftovers ideas
Fri - visiting friends
We're going away, so I haven't done a plan.
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.
Tonight is wedges and red pepper and lentil dip
I’m away for the next two days
Monday: squash, spinach and feta filo parcels
Tuesday: risotto with goats cheese, peas, broadbeans and pesto

Fri - sausage pasta bake

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?!)
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....
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!
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!!
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!
I've just done one for the first time in ages.
Fri-Quiche and salad
Sat-pizza (just me at home)
Sun-Scampi, chips and mushy peas
Mon- Mushroom stroganoff
Tues-Belly pork roast
I’m really excited about mine this week
Tonight: likely a supermarket sandwich or similar (less excited about this)
Tomorrow: mushroom, chickpea and spinach stroganoff with rice
Sunday: out for a big pub late lunch/early dinner in a posh part of town
Monday: olive, sundried tomato and feta salad
Tuesday: spicy bean puff pastry slices
Wednesday: white bean and leek gratin and ciabatta
Thursday: potato, courgette and mozzarella fritters with cherry tomato, rocket and mozzarella salad
Friday: lentil spaghetti bolognese
Tonight - supermarket "takeaway" curry with samosa's and pakoras
Saturday - Quiche and salad for lunch and pork schnitzel with new pots and broccoli for dinner or proper german hot dogs with onion rings. Not decided yet - depends how piggy we feel.
Sunday - roast chicken with roast veg for lunch and Mac & Cheee for supper
Monday - leftover chicken with jacket pots and veg or salad
