    Morning

    Might be old news here but Tesco now sale m&s gift cards ,Amazon and John Lewis and with an extra 75 points per £25 spend, so worth getting in preparation for Christmas also if anyone uses the zeek app they have 3% off the Tesco gift cards ( small amount to some but if you are buying anyway it's still a saving). So buy Tesco gift card to use in Tesco to buy other gift cards

    Spanish olive and potato stew from Mr TS's 50th last year.

    And a chick pea, broad bean and pumpkin tagine, made last year too.

    Topped it off with a whoopsied mini naan bread.

    We will get to the bottom of the freezer before the month is out.

    I have joined you in the cooking today (I normally do this on a Sunday as they get home before me and would eat rubbish if it was not pre-prepared with instructions).

    Pizza cooked, sliced and wrapped/pasta made for lunches for the week (boxed and in the fridge). Yoghurts and fruit for puds.

    Monday - stew (if OH does not eat it all... he is on his 2nd bowl now after eating a full cooked dinner).

    Tuesday - whoopsie salmon/pastry thing, salad.

    Wednesday - shepherds pie/carrots/sprouts

    Thursday - chilli/rice

    Friday - chicken fajita wraps.

    There is a take-away meal and another pizza in the fridge for the boys to eat. I need to make leek and pot soup as the leeks need using, but I have run out of potatoes!
