So bored with the food I'm making recently - we need to cut out food spend down as much as possible for the winter so I'm putting these here to remind me when I get bored of what we eat.
I am meal planning main meals for the week - I managed to do this week only needing to get a few ingredients, (including flour for making own bread) and for lunches we can have home made soup, sandwiches and pasta.
Here are the new ideas:
- Chicken a la king - chicken with garlicy white sauce and peas
- Chickpea ketchup curry
- Kedgeree - smoked mackerel (no separate cooking) rice, boiled eggs, curry paste and lots of coriander and dollop of creme fraiche at the end
- Some kind of delicious scrambled eggs: scramble the eggs and 75% fry them then put them in a bowl. fry quartered tomatoes then when they're nice and soft, bung the eggs back in squirt on some ketchup and stir. put the lid on and take off the heat and leave to stand for a couple of minutes. serve with rice. a side of bacon is nice. 2-3 eggs and 3-4 tomatoes per person.
- Cullen skink is good requires one piece of smoked haddock (good when on reduced at supermarket) onions and potatoes.
- One pan, fry chopped bacon and onion, add potatoes and carrots and sweat, then throw in red lentils, a bit of veg stock and chopped tomatoes and simmer for a while.
- Fajitas: fry chicken + fajita seasoning, also sliced peppers, onions, and other veg if you want (like courgette or mushroom - all works), then eat with tortillas and sour-cream, guacamole, mayo, or grated cheese (ideally all of the above).
- Mince in gravy all in Yorkshire puddings (literal genius idea here!)
- Quick prawn korma
- Panhaggerty - bacon, potatoes, onions, carrots all fried in a pan
- Soup and cheese scones
- Root veg casserole with chive dumplings
- Chicken basque
- Fishcakes - I have a tin of tuna in the cupboard so must do this
- A page of nice christmassy recipes including salads
