We had chickpea, mushroom and courgette risotto last night, rest of the week having tomato ommlette and oven chips, pre-homemade and frozen veggie lasagne with peas and broccoli, haddock cooked in milk with mash and peas tonight (poor DH is going to the dentist today and needs comfort food), pasta with a tomatoey-olivey sauce.

Not very imaginative this week!

We had tomato and pancetta risotto last night, I'm doing a chicken and leek pie later... later in the week we'll have macaroni cheese, jacket potatoes, and carbonara. Not thought as far as the weekend.

Sorry Zippy not to get at you but I am irrationally irritated when people have to point out that something is homemade blush I suppose I never assume otherwise really...

mothersmilk Tue 18-Aug-09 09:32:34

a friend took the piss out of me the other day for actually making things like pies pasties ect> blush i just assumed it was the norm apparently not though as when i asked more people they said the same

ZippysMum Tue 18-Aug-09 09:33:07

A-ha! I pointed it out because I am irrationally pleased with myself as it is my FIRST homemade lasagne <<preen>>. grin

<<Mental note to preen in private in future>>

mothersmilk Tue 18-Aug-09 09:35:47

no preen yourself in publis weldone you!! lets hope its the first of many!! lasgne great you chuck anything uses up any veg ect that need to go

ohdofuckoff Tue 18-Aug-09 09:37:11

Ah! Sorry Zippy, in that case do it like this: HOMEMADE LASAGNE THAT I MADE BY MYSELF, don't be coy, shout it out

Sorry I did not mean to offend.

And well done - I bloody love Lasagne but I get lazy and it ends up as bolognaise as it's quicker blush

ZippysMum Tue 18-Aug-09 09:38:39

Yes I used up stacks of veg - though I was amazed how it all seemed to disappear into nothing in the sauce. We're trying to stock up the freezer (twins due in 4 weeks) and I made 4 for the freezer but I keep using them up when I can't be bothered to cook blush[lazy emoticon]

Littlepurpleprincess Tue 18-Aug-09 09:56:58

We got Spag Bol tonight, then Omlette, Salmon mash and runner beans, chicken stew, Chirizo sausage and mushroom pasta.

Had scallops with sugar snap peas and corn with rice on Saturday, jacket potatoes with a selection of fillings and salad on Sunday (kitchen painting) fish pie last night. Paneer curry tonight (great for using loads of veg), chilli and tacos tomorrow, a sort of pork and veg stew made in the slow cooker for the first time on Thursday. Friday is DS1's birthday and he has asked for take away pizza.

ZippysMum Tue 18-Aug-09 10:17:33

HeadFairy Tue 18-Aug-09 10:37:52

last night we had potato gnocci with a creme fraiche and smoked salmon and dill sauce and left over pudding from Sunday lunch (home made apple and blackberry crumble)

Tonight I'm doing Thai chicken with rice

Wednesday will probably be risotto as I have the ingredients which need to be used, but not sure if two rice dishes in a week might be too much.

Thursday will be omelettes and oven chips

Friday will be whatever I can scrabble around for in the fridge - baked potatoes and something probably.
