Today I’m sharing the next post in my ‘What we ate in a week’ series!
The plan with these posts is that I start writing this post the Monday before you read it each month and just update it each night with a photo of what we had for our tea that day. It worked pretty well so far so let’s see if I’m as good this time…
I was a bit late in from work tonight so Miss Frugal was in charge of tea! She made chicken salad with boiled eggs which we ate served in wraps!
Chicken Fajitas are a regular feature on our weekly menu these days but tonight Mr Frugal made them and they were a bit hotter than we’re used to. They were nice but there was more leftover than usual so I added some to some couscous for lunch tomorrow.
You might have noticed a pattern with this week’s meals so far – they’ve all been cooked by someone other than me as I’m having a super busy week! Tonight is a concoction made by Mr Frugal and added to by Miss Frugal – tortellini (shop bought) and some homemade tomato sauce heated up with some chilli powder, some spinach and some grated cheese.
I forgot to take a photo of the meal itself but I did manage to get photos of the chicken part of the meal. It’s cajun chicken which we had with salad and fries.
So, not a great tea tonight as far as being healthy and wealthy is concerned but we did have a buy one get one free voucher and it’s been a really long week for me personally and I’ve had a few long days which have meant not much time with the kids. It’s not something that happens often but when it does, I really appreciate how everyone gets on with things so a treat was in order tonight!
I popped a gammon in the slow cooker this morning so tonight we had a mini roast dinner with mash and veggies. This was my planned Sunday Dinner for tomorrow but we’ve had such a crazy week that I thought we’d have an easier dinner tomorrow so we could get outside and do something together in the afternoon.
Today’s lunch turned into a hybrid of spaghetti carbonara and macaroni cheese using some of the gammon leftovers from yesterday’s tea. It was delicious and super quick to make – it was on the table ready to eat less than 20 minutes after I started making it.
