Off food shopping later and looking for some inspiration.

I've got a ham in the slow cooker which will do for salads/sandwiches at lunch.
It's a big joint so it'll also make:
Ham, pea and mint tagliatelle
Ham, leek and mushroom pie.
I also have a pack of mince from which I will make:
A ragu and serve with pasta.
Will make enough to split another small portion which I will turn into a chilli and serve on a jacket potato with sour cream & salad.
I have some salmon in the freezer so I will do that with new potato and green beans.
Friday is pizza and salad night!

Today is plantain, rice and veg chilli for lunch and broccoli soup for dinner
Tomorrow and Wednesday lunch is cheese and tomato quiche with salad, dinners will be haddock and veg one night and chicken curry the other
Thursday is roast carrots, cauliflower and tomatoes with rice and then leftover curry for dinner.
Haven't got any further yet!

Tacos with salad and garlic and herb wedges tonight.

Tomorrow is cottage pie

Wednesday is egg and chips with loads of bread and butter

Then snacks on Thursday as it’s football training and running for me.

Made ham in the slow cooker yesterday. Going to add the leftovers to Nasi Goreng tonight for me and DP. Making BBQ popcorn chicken for the DC (saw the recipe on another thread, coat chicken in bbq sauce, then bread with crushed bbq tortillas, stick in oven) with sweet corn, salad and garlic bread.

I've been watching YouTube recently for new meal ideas, can recommend the Foulger Family and Ashley Baillie for achievable but tasty looking family meals. They both do weekly recaps of what they fed their families for dinner, cook with me videos and so on.
