Here is what we'll be eating this week...
Sunday roast chicken, roasties, stuffing, bread sauce, cheesy leeks, carrots, greens and runner beans and gravy. Chocolate crunch pie.
We ate this yesterday and it was lovely!
Monday beef casserole in the slow cooker and chilled lemon flan.
Tuesday porc a la creme and rice. Montlimar pudding.
Wednesday corn and ham flan, homemade wedges and beans. Toffee peaches.
Thursday gourmet sausages, mash, carrots and broccoli. Lemon meringue pie.
Friday chicken pilaff and peach dessert.
Saturday bacon cakes, homemade chips and beans. Homemade vanilla slices.
Yes, there is a lot of meat in our diet, but I use less and stretch it out with veg etc. my husband has a very manual job and I'm no longer serving him up the likes of macaroni cheese for tea after a hard days work! We love a gravy dinner!
It had turned colder here, I even put Daisy back in tights and vests and cardies, but now it is red hot again. We are back to sun tan lotion, hats, shorts and ice lollies! Today is hot and I've got the slow cooker going with a casserole and I've been ironing while Daisy naps...not ideal!
While I've been away from proper blogging, I've been catching up with things, celebrating Daisy's second birthday and having a good think! Every now and then I need to re-evaluate and make plans, sometimes changing things. I got on well with my daily blogging, but illness definitely got in the way. I didn't want to put too much pressure on myself so faded away for a while. I have decided to blog when I have something worth reading! Rather than looking for things to interest you, I intend to blog about what we've been up to. Meal plan Monday will remain, but my top tips and thrifty ideas will be 'talked' about as and when. If I do something and think you would appreciated me sharing it with you, then it will be written about that day. I love Wednesday baking, but I will share my baking as I go along. The same with my cooking and recipes. If you see something on my meal plan that you like the look of, please leave a comment and I will share the recipe. I will also continue to share my thrifty purchases (loads of photos to come). Not much sewing going on lately, but there will be soon!
So, apologies, but I need to write my blog according to my lifestyle...
I hope you will enjoy reading in the future :)
Any recipe requests for this week? Dinner or pudding, it's all homemade.
One last thing...I had the absolute pleasure of meeting one of my readers a short while ago. She was lovely and really made my day! It's a small world.
Thanks for waiting for my return,
