Yesterday - veggie spag bol
Today - pie, oven chips and peas with gravy!
Tomorrow - Thai vege curry
Weds - veggie sausages and sweet potato mash
Thurs - some sort of curry with paneer, and I might make dhal as well depending on how energetic I'm feeling

Not sure beyond that. Have the stuff to make a veggie chilli, or some sort of soup or something with baked potatoes maybe (but the latter would need some fresh vege buying).

Not sure if it's solely because of the lockdown, but I seem to have lost interest in food other than sweet snacks. Feel the weight creeping on already. Today apart from porridge for breakfast I have eaten,

2 slices of marmalade on (white) toast for lunch, followed by a tin of rice.

2 slices of white bread with jam on.

4 toffees
6 biscuits
A piece of fruit cake.

We've got lasagna for tonight with tenderstem broccoli and roasted courgette.
Also this week:
Chilli with wedges and salad
Bacon and cheese quiche, chips and green beans
Chicken and chilli burgers with something TBD for the weekend

Not worked out next week yet but got quite a few options

🤢 with envy reading these. Yes, I could cook them but after years of rustling up tasty meals I cannot be bothered at the moment!

We're completely fixated on food and meals atm, so meal plans and shopping lists get pored over and tweaked endlessly!
Starting from tonight:
Leftover sausage and cannellini bean casserole
Linguine with prawns, tomato and chilli
Fish pie
Veg curry and split pea dhal
Lamb leg steaks with potato wedges
That's as far as we've got.

Tonight: HM empanadas with sautéed cabbage and mash
Tomorrow: pizza night (cabbage soup for me)
Saturday: African peanut stew #standard
Sunday: curry night
Monday: HM tofu ricotta stuffed ravioli

Then I think we need to do a food shop (and gin)

Where are the lunch plans? That is what is killing me - we used to eat maybe one lunch a week at home and now I am having to come up with seven.

Lunch: bubble and squeak with leftover mash
Dinner: sausage rolls

Lunch: tomato soup
Dinner: lasagna

Lunch: bread and hummus
Dinner: Singapore fried rice

Lunch: mushrooms on toast
Dinner: omelettes

Lunch: cheese sandwiches
Dinner: spaghetti with bacon and pesto

Lunch: baked beans
Dinner: salmon and stir fried veg

I think I can produce all that from the freezer and fridge, as I went shopping yesterday.

IJumpedAboard, can you share the peanut stew recipe? I’m missing the Ghanaian restaurant near us.

lastqueenofscotland Fri 10-Apr-20 07:44:28

@IJumpedAboardAPirateShip peanut stew is such a staple here as well I have to limit myself to it once a fortnight or I’d eat it every other day

Haha me too @lastqueenofscotland I feel like one of us always has it on our meal plan every thread!

@TolstoyAteMyHamster I do a probably not very authentic bastardised version based on OhSheGlows recipe

lastqueenofscotland Fri 10-Apr-20 16:06:07

@TolstoyAteMyHamster for lunch I always make enough of the previous meal to have for lunch
