Garlic sausage, oven chips and eggs...and at an early time as I hope to be watching a kind of folk evening that happens on the town so a bit of a change for me. Not an exciting meal but it will do...

A simple meal because of speed but also I had to create space in the freezer to put things in but that meant taking things out. For date reasons but also what is now in the freezer is worth more.

Spinach and three cheese cannelloni from the freezer that we should have had last night followed by the last of the olive oil choc cake (Nigella) with cream.

As kids aren't with me this week it will be half a pack of Asda cheap sausages (1 a pack), some Asda Smart Price small potatoes, and frozen peas from Lidl. Total should be under 1

Grilled frankfurters (not something we'd usually buy but I won a pack so not going to say no to free food! ) with bacon, egg & fried baked potato (I cooked an extra one yesterday!)

Today, I slow cooked chicken thighs and drumsticks in a jerk marinade with several sticks of sliced celery, 3 peeled chopped fresh tomatoes and some slightly limp spring onions.
Served with rice, it does us both for dinner, plus a lunch for bloke tomorrow (as he always does - no shop bought lunches for him!)

Have thrown tea in the slow cooker, huge pack of mince, 2 tins toms, onions, mushrooms, garlic, herbs, wine, dash wosterchire sauce, bit of stock, will hopefully come home to a lovely bolognese this afternoon

Have made myself a naughty breakfast while I was making that up too....

I am craving a roast but that would mean going shopping and I really need to eat from the freezer so I can defrost it... so....

possibly fish finger sandwiches and garlic bread for snacking on later

We are desperately trying to empty the freezer at the minute, but seem to be getting nowhere fast (I'm sure things multiply in there )

Last night DH had king prawn linguine and I had chicken wrapped in bacon with roasted parsnips and carrots.
Tonight DH will have a ready meal from the freezer and I will have leftover chicken in a risotto with green vegetables.
