I’ve started a new job with lots of new stuff to learn, and am finding it hard to settle down to planning every week. So, for a while at least, we’re going to be on a predictable round of meals. If we get bored, well, I’ll change things around a little, but this is the basic outline.
- non-branded shreddies / chocolate weetabix for small
- 1/2 cup of mix made from Lidl musli (750g) with added porridge oats (250g) soaked in milk / bread & marmalade for big
- biscuits (bought custard creams and ginger nut biscuits; might make oatie biscuits if there’s time)
- tea / decaf tea / bush tea / coffee (big)
- ribena (small)
- milk (small)
- sultana loaf / banana bread / girdle scones / muffins (all can be frozen)
- Pressure cooker rice pudding (once you add in the prep & heating / cooling time, it’s closer to 20 mins than the 9 she quotes, but hey it’s still quick)
- natural yogurt and cake-decorating sprinkles (stir to make rainbows in your bowl)
- ice cream cone
- school dinner (£1.80) / bean burger leftovers or soup
- pressure cooker risotto (still working on getting small person to eat this – she likes rice pudding, so…?)
- Chicken mayo wrap (from frozen cooked chicken leftovers) / risotto leftovers
- Poached egg / Omelettes with boiled potatoes ( make extra for tomorrow’s lunches)
- potato salad (or coleslaw?) with cheese cubes (small person gets an after-school extra meal as she has dance class – possibly egg mayo?)
- bean goulash (or my modified version of Butternut, spinach & chickpea curry without the chilli) & rice
- hotdog / leftover bean goulash or soup
- pasta & cheese sauce with carrot sticks for crunch
- Tuna wrap or hamster mix / leftover pasta or soup, depending on quantities
- Baked potatoes with cheese (small) or tuna salad (big)
- Potato soup with carrot & milk instead of yogurt (small person had seconds, so this is definitely on the menu!)
- Sausage & mash OR slow cooker roast chicken
- Soup of some description (small person does NOT like tomato)
- Bean burgers served in muffins or on rice (may not work for small person so fish fingers a reliable option)
Just a reminder: I’m cooking for two adults (one female, one male) and a 5yo with a history of reflux who would still happily live on milk alone.
