What We Are Eating This Week (W/C 21/07)

It's been a week of giving Big Boy his injections and blood tests and we've got into a nice little routine now. Big Boy needs to feel in control of what is happening so he decides which finger we will prick to do the blood test, then he reads the figure on the monitor before he decides in which area we will inject his insulin and he helps us count to ten after we have injected the insulin before pulling out the needle to make sure that all the insulin enters his blood steam instead of being left in the needle. Now we just need to work on keeping his blood sugars in check...

Saturday - Prawn Stir Fry


I had this for dinner the other night and it was so delicious that I have wanted it again since. Rice noodles with stir fry veggies for everyone, prawn crackers and spring rolls for the children and sweet chilli sauce for Daddy!

It doesn't take long to cook which is a Saturday night bonus and there won't be many dishes to wash up either which I think counts as a Saturday night bonus too!

Sunday - Roast Salmon


We are taking a break from Roast Chicken, mainly because I'm bored of cooking them! Last week we had roast sausages, but this week we are going with Salmon. I know it's fish twice in two days, but Salmon is one of the dishes that I know that we all love to eat and it's on offer at the moment too!

Monday - Seekh Kebabs with Rice (Meatballs for those who don't want kebabs)


Last week when I made the Lamb Burgers with Feta, Daddy thought that they tasted quite similar to Seekh Kebabs and I said that I would attempt to make them for him. I know that Big Boy probably won't like them because they will have some chilli in them so I'll make him some meatballs!

Tuesday - Pesto Chicken and Pasta


I love Pesto but hardly eat it as it's hard getting everyone else (ie the Children) to eat it. I read a recipe during the week where the chicken was flavoured with the pesto and I thought that this was a good way of getting the taste but without having to worry about the pesto not being eaten.

Wednesday - Jacket Potatoes


We'll cook them in the slow cooker so that they are nice and soft by the time we are ready to eat, especially because we have to go to the hospital in the morning for a couple of appointments for Big Boy and so we don't want to be spending hours in the kitchen afterwards and will be wanting to have lots of fun together to make the most of the Summer Holidays!

Thursday - Leftover Curry


We have frozen leftover curry sitting in the freezer and I think that it needs to be eaten sooner rather than later so we're eating this now! I'll serve it with rice naan breads for the children, and a gluten free one for Flyfour and I'll take a pitta bread as we have them in the kitchen thanks to Warburtons already!

Friday - Steak Fajitas


I really wanted to do steak this week, but couldn't think how to do it and then I thought that fajitas would be the best way as everyone loves making their own variation of what we are eating! Plus I think that steak is a great way to end the week.
