Needing a bit of inspiration? Here’s what’s on the menu at my place this week…. (as always, click the photos to go through to the recipes)…
It’s gonna be a busy day, so I’ll get the rice cooker going to make this cauliflower & cashew pilaf….
I finish work at 3, so I’ve got time in the afternoon to whip up some some chicken yakitori skewers (and yell at the kids to do their homework)…
Wednesdays are busy. I’m at work during school hours and then it’s swimming classes. So I actually will have whipped up this beef canneloni earlier in the week and it’ll be in the fridge, waiting for us to just reheat it…
One thing that we could eat more of is fish, so I’ll pop this on the list for this week. My kids will eat anything if it’s rolled up into a lightsaber-style wrap. Roll them tight and secure with foil. The kids can peel as they munch, which somehow makes it all a more fun scenario.
Our latest quick dinner favourite is baked potatoes. If I’m exhausted by friday night then I just mash the insides together with grated cheese, a tin of tuna (with the oil) and 125g can of corn. On a better night I’ll also add in a finely chopped mushroom, tomato and even fennel. Top it with some cucumber and spinach leaves and it’s all just DELICIOUS. And wine. Did I mention wine? There’s always wine on a Friday night.
With the cold weather still lingering, I’m loving an old-style Saturday night family dinner. With Mr VS home late all week, this is often the only night where we get to all have a meal together. So I make sure that it’s something that everyone loves. And often there’ll be dessert. These cutlets and crumble will be perfect.
Have a great week!
