What We Are Eating This Week (W/C 22/09)

We're eating cheap this week, it's nearly the end of the month and so I'm trying to make our budget stretch as far as possible and I really need to finish running down the freezers (we have three) now that I know what's in them!

Saturday - Pizza

Gluten Free Pizza isn't always as lovely as it should be but we have it tonight because we have some bases in the cupboard, we always have tomato purée or paste in the fridge or cupboard and there is always Ham, Cheese and Pineapple hanging about too. Just a shame they won't be shaped like Top Ender's Hello Kitty Friday Lunch or Big Boy's Mario Toad Mushroom Friday Lunch just a plain circle.

Sunday - Roast Dinner

A Roast is the highlight of the week for the family. We love sitting together and eating and chatting and just generally having fun together. Daddy is always trying to make the children laugh instead of eating their dinner and I'm always trying to make them eat their dinner without laughing at Daddy's jokes so we all have great fun at dinner.

Monday - Jacket Potatoes

I love doing Jacket Potatoes for dinner, it only takes a few minutes to prepare them and throw them in the oven and then that's it, they are cooked and all you have to do is add some Baked Beans some Cheese and you're done. Also not only is it really cheap but it's tasty and everyone eats it!

Tuesday - Honey Mustard Chicken

We love Honey Mustard Chicken, I am cheating this week and have a Chicken Tonight jar to add to the meal instead of making my own and it will be served with vegetables and Mashed Potato, because I like that the sauce gets soaked up into the potato.

Wednesday - Spaghetti Bolognese

The children love Spaghetti Bolognese because it's fun to make Stupid Girl Duck Posing Faces (AKA Invisible Spaghetti) when slurping it up.

Thursday - Chicken Casserole

It's starting to get colder and so casserole is a key dinner for putting "meat" on your bones and keeping you warm when you won't turn on the heating until the middle of October...

Friday - Hot Dogs

Daddy will be making Hot Dogs, Mash and Beans for dinner for him and Big Boy tonight. Top Ender is staying overnight at a friends house and I'm out at the MAD Blog Awards. I'm not sure who is more excited about dinner this Friday!

So that's the plans for this week. I have had some Dalepak vouchers delivered this week so I'll be stocking up the freezer with some of the dishes that they produce and I also won some vouchers in a School Raffle for a local Freezer Centre so I'll be stocking up with those too!

Dalepak sent me some vouchers like I said. :0)
