Our main change has been that Mr MC&W has been working in London for the last few months. All his meals are eaten in town, I am eating dinner with the boys. Now trying to find meals that we all want to eat has become interesting.
Saturday - Mr MC&W and I are having chicken breast burgers. Roast chicken breast with avocado, bacon and a lovely spicy mayo served on Ciabatta. Boys will have make your own pizza with a homemade tomato sauce.
Sunday - Sausages roasted with potatoes and red onions in a whole grain mustard and honey sauce served with lots of green veggies for Mr MC&W andyself. I love this it's adapted from the busy mums cookbook and is a wonderful throw in the oven meal. Boys will have sausages and mash.
Monday - A simple special fried rice using chicken and children friendly veggies.
Tuesday - Carbonara but I am using the madhouse cookbook version with mascarpone as I do not like the meal too eggy and will swap bacon for thick sliced ham.
Wednesday - Puff Pastry tarts, I love these, I will make my special tomato sauce which is very sweet in the morning and we can all choose the toppings from things like ham, cheese, mushrooms etc served with salad
Thursday - tuna fish cakes we have not had these in a while I am going to make the boys almost mini ones and bake in the oven. Served with peas and sweetcorn plus if feeling adventurous the boys can try some sweet chilli sauce.
Friday - mini meatballs for the boys and proper ones for Mr MC&W and I served on spaghetti. I now cook this meal in the oven and seems to work really well.
