Also, this weather has not helped bright and too hot one day and thunderstorms the next. Friday - Posh Fish Fingers and Chips Saturday - Spag Bol Sunday - Roast Chicken Monday - Easy Singapore Noodles -  this looks great and is a new meal. BBC Good Food Singapore noodles Tuesday - Spiced Salmon Traybake. Salmon, roast pots and peas for the boys. BBC Good Food Spiced salmon traybaked sag aloo Wednesday - Sausage Pasta Bake.
