Guess what? After more than two months of being ill and four (possibly 5) courses of antibiotics and steroids, I think I actually feel better! I have gone a whole day without having a mad coughing fit and I have my voice back enough that I can actually hold a conversation without squeaking at some point.
This weeks meal plan reflects the fact that I finally feel able to cook properly again – we’ve had lots of slips up recently where I have been too tired/ill/miserable to cook so we’ve had more ready meals and takeaways lately than I would like to admit but in my defence, I just haven’t had the energy to do much else.
Monday – Roast Pork and Crackling with Yorkshire puddings and roasties.
Tuesday – Fish with chips and mushy peas. We got some lovely haddock fillets from the shop on offer so I just dipped in flour, egg and breadcrumbs and popped them in the oven.
Wednesday – Smoked Mackerel Risotto. I’ll share the recipe later in the week as it’s this weeks Fish is the Dish recipe.
Thursday – Practice Christmas Dinner. I’m experimenting on Thursday to see how cheaply I can make a Christmas Dinner for so make sure you come back on Thursday and see how I do. It’s Mr Frugal’s birthday so it seemed like a good idea to do it then – he’ll think I’m just cooking him a special tea.
Friday – Slow cooker chicken in red wine sauce with saute potatoes. I’ll blog the results of this later in the week too as I’ve never attempted this before.
So that’s what we’ll be eating this week but the recipe I wanted to share with you today was one of my lazy recipes from when I was feeling at my worst, when I couldn’t even muster the energy to get in the car and drive to McDonalds 😉
Cheats Naan Bread Pizza
Take one reduced price naan bread although you can pay full price for it if you really want to.
Spread tomato ketchup on the top.
Sprinkle grated cheese on it.
Pop in the oven until the cheese is golden brown,
Serve with curly fries and some more tomato ketchup.
I know it’s not particularly nutritious and healthy but sometimes you just have to do what you can with what you’ve got and everything is good in moderation, right?
