How on earth did it become Sunday evening already?
We had a lovely morning visiting mum and dad. My poor dad has a dreadful cold which is making him feel very rough but mum is trying to entice him to eat by making jam sponges and home made sausage rolls.
My darling daughter and I then went to the supermarket and did the shopping for next week. We chose to do our shopping at Tesco this week as I had a four pound off voucher and they give very good club card vouchers for meals and days out. I thought we could save them out for nice days out in the holidays.
I managed to get a school term calendar at the supermarket half price. I have been after one of these for a while as I find it very difficult to keep on top of everything that goes on for each child so writing it down and checking it each morning helps a lot.
Monday - Braising steak with mashed potato, carrots and sweetcorn (done in the slow cooker)
Tuesday - Spaghetti Bolognese (done in the slow cooker)
Wednesday - Roast Chicken, potatoes, veg (chicken in slow cooker)
Thursday - Lamb, New Potatoes and veg
Friday - Gammon steaks with pineapple, chips, eggs
Saturday - Chicken salad sandwiches
Sunday - Vegetable soup and rolls
Fingers crossed this menu plan will make for a nice easy week of cooking.
I hope you have a lovely evening. I am going to sit and relax and watch a bit of television before I go to bed.
Take care xx
