In this warm balmy weather I need some inspiration!

Tonight we are having roast chicken, salad and pitta breads with coleslaw and cous cous.

I have made a jelly with red berries in it for pud.

How about you?

We are having chilli con carne. Made with the leftovers of a roasting joint of beef that we did on the bbq-it was bloody delicious and I'm hoping the smokey taste will enhance the chilli.

was going to be home made potatoe wedges, salad and omelettes, but I'm knackered and DH has just handed me £11 to pop down the chippy and buy dinner grin (I have been ver busy today so am justifiably tired)

Alibabaandthe40nappies Tue 23-Jun-09 18:56:52

Chicken kiev with chips and a salad


DS had chicken and pasta with green beans

I am really struggling for inspiration now it's warm. DH and I would normally have lots of things marinated and grilled with new pots and salad, but none of the marinades are really suitable for DS (11 mo).
I had forgetten about couscous and roasted veg. DS would like that and I could just grill him some plain chicken.

Mintyy Tue 23-Jun-09 18:59:58
