Another lazy week this week as I’ve just been signed off on work for another week with this stupid chest infection.
Monday – Left over Pork from yesterdays roast – sliced cold with chips.
Tuesday – Home made fish pie.
Wednesday – Chicken Curry with naan bread for the grown ups and naan bread pizza’s for the kids.
Thursday – Pasta Bolognaise – recipe next week.
Friday – Macaroni cheese
Saturday – Chicken fried rice
Sunday – Some sort of roast – whatever meat is on offer with yorkshires, roasties and veg
I’ve heard a rumour that the weather’s going to turn a bit nasty later on this week so I’ve stocked up on hot chocolate and marshmallows and planned lots of puddings for us because you need a good pud in this weather don’t you? We’re going to have rice pudding, peach cobbler, Brownies with custard and for when I’m feeling super lazy, we’re going to have microwave sponge pudding which is one of my favourite easy but yummy recipes.
Microwave Sponge Pudding
- Cream the sugar and the butter together and then beat in the eggs, milk and vanilla essence.
- Fold in the flour until it’s the mixture looks light and fluffy.
- Layer the bottom of a microwave proof bowl with jam, add as much or as little as you like but I use about seven spoons of jam when I make it.
- Pour your cake mix over the jam in the bowl and pop in the microwave for around five minutes. I check it after three and a half minutes and then every thirty seconds after that until it’s cooked.
