Trying Something New
I’m a bit late with my menu this week. We are trying something new. We’ve been having issues with food, being totally fed up of the regular meals we were having and the cupboards and freezers were stacked up with food we don’t really want to eat. So, I’ve been trying to mix it up a bit. I enjoy a fortnightly box from Mindful Chef, so I decided to buy a cookbook. I am keen to try quite a lot of the recipes which is good. I’ll let you know how we get on. You can read my last weekly menu here.
This Weeks Menu
No Birthdays this week, we have to wait until next Monday. She’s asked for a take away pizza and chocolate cake. I’m not complaining. We normally go out as a family to Pizza Hut, it’s been a tradition for about 6 years. But this year we don’t want to risk a crowded restaurant. So we will be trying something new and recreating a pizza restaurant at home.
- Monday – Lemon Salmon with asparagus ( from the mindful chef cookbook)
- Tuesday – Teriyaki Tempeh with kimchi fried rice
- Wednesday – quiche
- Thursday – pork chilli, avocado and sweet potato wedges
