What We Are Eating This Week W/C 13th May 2017

I've got into a little bit of a mindset when planning the evening meals for my family and I. During the week, Top Ender and Dan Jon Jr eat a meal at School, although this will be changing soon as I'm not sure that either of them are getting the full benefit from a hot meal at lunch and Dan Jon is pretty much only picking Jacket Potatoes as they are his favourite form of potato at the moment! Anyway, because of this, there is a lot of pasta happening!

My favourite pasta I've ever made even if the rest of the family didn't like it!

Saturday Nachos with Cheese and Hot Dogs

After we've watched Doctor Who and eaten our Nachos and Hot Dogs, we'll be having an ice cream treat (it's a Saturday thing) and then sitting down to watch Eurovision! I'm assuming that Top Ender and Flyfour will watch together whilst munching on popcorn, but as Dan Jon Jr will probably not want to watch, he and I will vanish upstairs. DJ may have popcorn, but my latest obsession is chocolate chip rice cakes so I may try and not eat an entire packet by getting Flyfour to hide them from me.

Sunday Chicken and Boiled Potatoes

A few weeks ago, Flyfour and I were in Tesco and we purchased a few different packets of Chicken with different flavourings, that were gluten free. I've decided to cook them today with boiled new potatoes and some veg  (not sure what!) and everyone will be happy. Well, Flyfour and I will be, everyone else will just have to lump it!

Monday Lasagne

Today is Dan Jon's birthday and as you get to pick what you eat on your birthday in our house, Dan Jon decided that he would really, really like a proper home made lasagne for his evening meal. We decided to make two, with one being in a freezable foil dish, so that we would have one for the freezer and have it in a couple of weeks time with less hassle and effort!

Tuesday Jacket Potatoes with Tuna

I figured that we'd have an easy meal today of Jacket Potato and Tuna mayo. The children and I will probably have sweetcorn with ours but Flyfour still isn't a fan of the golden nuggets of happiness and so he'll have to complain to himself that his meal wasn't as filling as the rest of ours.

Wednesday Spaghetti Carbonara

Our second pasta dish of the week. I have some bacon left over from last Friday's Pizza, so thought I'd use it tonight along with some cream cheese and cream to make a Spaghetti Carbonara for us to enjoy.

Thursday Stir Fry

I have some rice noodles that I wanted to use up and so I'm going to add these to some stir fry veg, a little bit of Turkey and I'll make a sauce using what I have in the cupboard and also the Chinese Five Spice seasoning that I almost always have on hand.

Friday Fish Pie

Okay, long time readers of this blog will know that Flyfour HATES Fish Pie and will probably wonder why I'm scheduling it for a meal for the whole family. Well, that's because a few weeks ago when I made a Fish Pie there wasn't anything else to eat in the house that evening and Flyfour reluctantly sat down to eat it.


I mean seriously loved it and asked me to make it again, so I'm making it tonight. Hopefully, it will taste as good as it did last time and if not well, tough Flyfour has said he wants Fish Pie now!
