Dinners last week were a little bit of a problem when I prepared Tuesdays meal before picking Top Ender up from School forgetting that Top Ender had a friend coming round for tea! Still with a bit of swapping around we managed to eat our dinners in a different order and everything was good. This week we have two birthdays to look forward to (My Mums on Tuesday and mine on Wednesday) so dinner is going to be exciting!
Saturday 29th April
We are going to have The A Mothers Ramblings Sticky Apple Bacon and Sausage Roast tonight because we can and we love it. I'm going shopping with my Mum in the late afternoon and as this doesn't take long (half an hour roughly) it is a perfect miserable weather comfort food!
Sunday 29th April
We are having a Roast Chicken (again!) for dinner. Last week I did it with Lemon, Rosemary and Garlic and it was lush, although the gravy wasn't too good. This week I'm thinking that I will do it with a honey glaze as I am having a really big sweet craving since giving up Fizzy drinks and chocolate in my bid to lose weight. By the way the weight loss is working. Slowly, but still working.
Monday 30th April
It's the last night of April, so lets end it on a high with Jacket Potatoes and Tuna or Beans depending on who you are. I can't wait as I love a good jacket potato and I'm going to do these Jacket Potatoes in the slow cooker so they will be really lovely!
Tuesday 1st May
We are off to my Sisters for dinner tonight to celebrate my Mum's birthday. I'm not sure what my sister is making other than it is gluten free so that Daddy can join in and that I'm making the pudding. The problem is that out of the twelve of us eating three of us are on official diets, one of us is on a diet but they don't know it, one of us is a diabetic and so can't eat anything too sugary and six of us are children. Jelly and Ice-Cream anyone?
Wednesday 2nd May
We have been as a family to Frankie and Benny's before and when we were asked if we could do a review again as they have a new menu, we decided to go out together as a family for my birthday! We are telling the staff that we are also celebrating Big Boys birthday as his birthday is in a couple of weeks and we don't want him to miss out on the fun too. I'm not sure what I will eat because despite having gone over the menu at least twenty times I can't narrow it down...
Thursday 3rd May
I'm off to the theatre with my Mum for our birthday, so dinner will be quite early for me! I will probably just have a sandwich before picking up my Mum. Daddy and the children are going to eat together and the children are hoping to have some of the Gregg slices that Iceland sell now and Daddy is having one of his Gluten Free ones which are blooming lovely. I have no idea what they will team it with, as if I plan potatoes they will have chips so I'll let them sort it out themselves.
Friday 4th May
It's Pizza night! It's a celebration week so why not? Daddy will make his (or rather whoever is cooking will) and I've cheated and brought Pizza's for the rest of us to share. The children are very much in to Hawaiian so that is probably what I will end up sharing too.
