Monday - sweet potato and lentil Dahl
Tuesday- spring chicken one pot

@UsernameTaken76 how do you do your salmon? Was thinking earlier I need salmon inspiration - and what carb would you serve it with?

Also, those cumin bean burgers sound delicious!

UsernameTaken76 Mon 29-Apr-19 20:27:22

Hi @fusionchefgeoff we use this salmon recipe it has potatoes in it for the carb. Love the minimal washing up. www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/5925/onepan-salmon-with-roast-asparagus

The veggie burgers were fab and so simple to make! It is a Jack Monroe recipe: cookingonabootstrap.com/2019/03/21/carrot-kidney-bean-burger-recipe/

I do that salmon & asparagus recipe - it's excellent.

This week we have
- Veggie Burgers (trying to stick to two veggie days a week, but kids not keen - we're going to try some fake meat quorn ideas)
- Spaghetti Bolognese
- Fish goujons, wedges, salad
- Chicken fajitas
- Minestrone & crusty bread
- Salmon with orzo & green salad

Ours isn't great this week because Sainsbo's failed to deliver a few things and because birthday child has requested Chinese takeaway tonight (which I dislike - sigh). SO:

Sunday - veggie chilli with nachos
Today: unpleasant Chinese takeaway
Tuesday - rest of the chilli with rice and salad
Weds - traybake including new potatoes, haloumi and asparagus with lemon and basil
Thursday - courgette and red chilli pasta

This week we're having:
Surf & turf with salad
Tacos
Mushroom stroganoff & cauli rice
Slow cooker chicken & chorizo stew
Chickpea & aubergine curry
Fish pie
Roast chicken dinner
Any leftover are used for lunch the following day. Was feeling very uninspired when I tried planning yesterday having just got back from Majorca. All I really wanted was more wine and tapas 😋

Oooh I love this!! This week I have used my Hello Fresh folder (I used Hello Fresh for about 6 months last year due to my other half working slot of over time and me helping my grandad in his pub most evenings and kept all of the recipes so have a large binder of them)

Monday: Ginger Beef Stir-fry
Tuesday: Hoisin Chicken Stir-fry
Wednesday: Grilled Aubergine Pasta
Thursday: Jerk Chicken Tostadas
Friday: Chicken Piccata
Saturday: Mexican Style Cottage Pie

Left overs will be lunch the next day, depending on my mood, I may switch out the days.

@UsernameTaken76 another idea for salmon is to marinade it in soy, honey and ginger and then bake in the oven!! It’s yummy!! I serve it with rice and veggies!
