Saturday - Salmon Parcels
One of our favourite foods here is Salmon, it's tasty and healthy and good for you and if we're honest compared to a lot of other fish it's fairly cheap.
We decided that we'd have Salmon Parcels today. All we do is wrap the Salmon with some vegetables and place them along with a little butter into the oven. It takes around twenty minutes and then everything is steamed to mouth watering perfection.
Sunday - Grilled Lemon Chicken with Potatoes
I asked everyone if they'd like Fish or a Chicken Roast for a meal this week, but nobody got back to me. I really like having the Fish on a Sunday (it's a good way of getting Flyfour to eat more fish) but I came across a recipe for Lemon Chicken this week which I thought would appeal to Flyfour because it has Olives in and he loves Olives.
I'm still not sure about Olives, but will get back to you on Sunday.
Meatless Monday - Mushroom Stroganoff
I love a good Mushroom Stroganoff and I thought with the new carpet having been fitted today, we should celebrate with a good meal.
As Dan Jon Jr thinks that Mushrooms are still stinky, slimy and possibly poisonous I figured I'd serve it with some Mash and some buttered French Stick to help the stroganoff go down more easily. Tops is going to spend the day looking at a localish University (yeah I know it seems early right? Due to the AG&T programme she is a part of she gets opportunities like this) so I'll bribe her to eat the meal with a good lunch and the promise of a pudding!
Tuesday - Bolognese stuffed Peppers with Rice and Salad
I've been really fancying pasta, but with the high carb content I really couldn't face the aftermath for Dan Jon Jr, so I thought I would make Bolognese stuffed Peppers. I will serve it with some rice and some salad because you know, we might as well have some carbs and make it a little more filling, but also because Dan Jon Jr and I have worked out how long it takes for him to digest rice!
Wednesday - McDonald's
When we have the hospital for Dan Jon Jr on a Wednesday, it has become traditional that we have a McDonald's or similar for our evening meal. I asked Dan Jon what he wanted tonight and he said he would like McDonald's.
So that's what we're having!
Thursday - Fish Finger Sandwiches
We didn't end up having them last week, Top Ender had been given a "prize" at School for being one of the best readers in her form and ended up bringing almost an entire pizza home left over from lunch and so we ate that.
Friday - Sausages and Mash
Dan Jon Jr decided Sausages and Mash would be the best way to end this week, I can't say that he is wrong.
