    I'm hoping a busy few hours in the kitchen will save me some time next week.

    Lunches already made for tomorrow

    Monday tea...10p pepper stir fry with chicken from the freezer and out of date noodles

    Tuesday lunch.....Chicken leftovers from Monday, new potatoes and salad
    Tuesday tea.......spag bol with homemade tomato pasta sauce and barilla spaghetti

    Wednesday lunch homemade carrot and coriander soup and bread from the freezer

    Wednesday tea ....mince and dumplings with whoopsied vegetables

    Thursday lunch Broccoli and cheese soup with bread

    Thursday tea whoopsied avocados, eggs, prawns and salad

    Friday lunch chicken wraps and salad

    Friday tea Bacon, cabbage and roasties

    Only thing I will need to buy is milk and a lettuce

    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!
    Frugal November £100 for 4 adults (one of which has a huge appetite!) fingers crossed.

    MHOC, what was your cabin upgrade? Always nice to get one of those

    I will dig numbers out tommorow but we moved from an outside obstructed up to an unobstructed - one of those nice secluded ones behind the art gallery - Ventura. The only people going in that direction live there so no through traffic so nice and quiet.
    plus I think the resturants are at the opposite end either same deck or one above (?) so not far to stagger in heels

    I am trying to sort the O2 and the carling thing out...

    I have the O2 sim, but it won't accept the code... think I may have to put some money on it!

    The carling looses me each time I try to figure it out!

    We had a frocky dinner tonight.

    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.

    Don't need to ask TM, he makes lime pickle when I bring them home.

    Sometimes in the summer he makes mojitos with the fresh lime juice too.
