It's a great week for food in our house his week. I'm trying really hard to keep everyone happy whilst keeping the budget low and of course making everything healthy, gluten free, suitable for diabetics and as of this week trying to exclude milk as it appears that Top Ender is reacting badly to milk again. I know it's great right? Still, at least it should help my budget if I'm excluding so much!
Saturday - Bacon Wrapped Cheese Filled Hot Dogs
I love looking on Pinterest at the different pins of different foods and when I saw Bacon Wrapped Cheese Filled Hot Dogs I knew that this was going to be a meal this week. I pretty much guessed how to make them, but the post at Barbara Bakes fully explains and they are so simple that I can't wait until tonight to eat them!
Sunday - Roast Chicken
It's been a while since we've had a good roast Chicken so it's time for it to make a comeback. The Chicken that we had on Friday was a bit dry so I really want to make a proper roast, with roast potatoes (with potatoes grown in our own garden), veggies, gravy and no yorkshire puddings as we have to keep the carbs low if Big Boy is going to have a doughnut for his pudding.
Monday - Spaghetti Bolognese
We all love spaghetti and bolognese is so easy to make in the slow cooker that the children can make this without my help (okay so they will have my help, but you know what I mean!). As we are trying to keep the carbs low I won't have the spaghetti (I'll have Salad instead) and we won't be serving garlic bread either. The good thing is that not having Garlic bread means there is a lot less calories!
Tuesday - Pizza
We need more pizza in our life. No, really we do. I'll get Daddy to make the pizzas as he always makes them nicer than me. Actually I just figured that he could make the dinner tonight as I found out that my Father In Law made dinner for his wife on Saturday!
Wednesday - Mince and OnionsDaddy requested that we have mince and onions for dinner as we've not had it for a while, that's mostly because the weather is rainy and cold and how I think that it should be for mince and onions, but still I want the family to be happy so they get what they want.
Thursday - Home Grown Jacket Potatoes
The jacket potatoes tonight have been grown by Daddy and he is rather proud of himself so we are going to make a big fuss of him when we eat dinner tonight. And unlike last week I'll remember to make sure we have enough butter to serve everyone and not just the children.
Friday - Sticky Mini SausagesBig Boy is a big fan of little cocktail sausages and as Marks and Spencer sell Gluten free ones, it would be rude of me not to buy them. So I'm going to make Sticky Sausages and serve with some oven baked lightly spiced wedges and BBQ Beans and this should please everyone!
So there you are, a week of meals for my family. We are slowly getting used to making meals that are good for BB and me and Tops and Daddy but we will get there.
