All We Are Eating W/C 15th October

I'm not sure if I enjoy this whole keeping meals to under £1 per head. It means I have to actually think each week about what meals I'm making and I'm not allowed to buy my usual cheat ingredients... chopped onion being my favourite!

Anyway, I managed to get the meals this week for 73p per head, which I don't think is too bad. I've added on a tonne of tinned and frozen fruit this week, which the children will have after their evening meal, occasionally with Ice-Cream, occasionally baked into a cake or even just "plain" as I realised that they were wanting a little extra each night, because of the smaller portions and because 5 portions of fruit or veg a day is good, 6 or 7 is better right?

Breakfast



Monday - Hash Brown and Bacon Wraps
Tuesday - Sausages and Black Pudding
Wednesday - Oat Cookies
Thursday - Breakfast Potatoes

Saturday and Sunday - Fend for yourself

Lunch


Monday - Ham Wrap
Tuesday - Veggie Pizza
Wednesday - Sandwich Sushi/Curry
Thursday - Pasta
Friday - Fish and Chips/Sandwich Sushi
Saturday - Toasties and Soup
Sunday - Beans on Toast

BTW for lunch, I either eat leftovers from the night before, the same as the children, or something completely random that is hiding in the back of the cupboard or freezer. Seriously, I have no idea where this stuff comes from. Someone must be buying it right?! This week, however, I'll be making the most of some Black Pudding and White Pudding that I've been asked to review. I love the stuff!

Evening Meals


Monday - Vegetable Soup
Tuesday - Sausages and Baked Veg
Wednesday - Tomato Soup
Thursday - Fish pie
Friday - Spaghetti and Meatballs
Saturday - Sausage Casserole
Sunday - Munch and Mingle

So that is what we are eating this week. What are you feasting upon this week?!
