I’ve had a good week in the kitchen. I still try to make as much as I can from scratch – with a few cheats – but some days/weeks I feel like I just don’t have any mojo. This week however has been a good week. It makes me happy when I manage to feed the 3 of us fairly decent home cooked food, and makes the treats feel a bit better too.
Merry Kitchen – Week beginning 4th June
Monday : Thai basil pork with sesame pak choi and rice
Tuesday: Chicken carbonara
Wednesday: Meatballs with a spicy Moroccan sauce, roasted vegetables, cous cous and yoghurt
Thursday: Smoked haddock kedgeree
Friday: Mexican bean soup with smashed tortilla chips and grated cheese
Saturday: Takeaway pizza!
Sunday: Scampi/peppered mackerel with peas and sweet potato bites
Breakfast is usually toast or cereal or a croissant at the weekend.
Lunch during the week tends to be sandwiches and soup or leftovers. At the weekend we usually have things like baked potatoes and beans, omelette, selections of wee picky bits (ham, cheese, carrot sticks, sweetcorn, crackers etc) or sometimes brunch – sausages and poached eggs. It depends what we have on and what is in the house. The wee one is fed at nursery Wednesday – Friday so I tend to cook slightly spicier or complicated things on those days.
