Thanks rachbc and martafdz
Think I need to do a menu plan for 5 weeks. Write out name, where to find recipe, meat needed, veg needed, any other needed. Going to take a while I think, unless anyone knows of something I can use that doesn't need much intelligence to use and I don't have to play around with.

When you guys put your proposed monthly spend on this thread, is that just solely for food? I ask because I spend around £100 a week at the supermarket (for 2 adults, 2 children, 1 cat and 2 fish!) but this does include around £10 on wine and any cleaning products or toiletries.
Shall I take these out of the equation and then look at how much I spend? I want to see if I can get it down, (which is tough for me when, given a choice between cooking or cleaning the bathroom/ironing/hoovering/putting the washing out/making the beds, the latter win every time...)

...scotsaver, your dish sounds lush! How do you make the HM chips? I used to fry them (and loved them!) but my DH does not like anything that has been fried pretty much. I mean, he would have it but then would say about how better and healthier they are in the oven... Do you make them in the oven? Anyone?

- with the mince meat: lasagne, shepherd's pie, bolognese, chili con carne, burritos, meatballs, burgers...
- with the pork chops: chopped and in skewers, chopped and in batter for sweet and sour pork, chopped and in stew or pie, grilled with garlic and rosemary, with apple sauce...
- I like my pork fillet with either a barbeque sauce or sticky honey/chinese sauce, then made into medallions before serving. Or with apple sauce if you like it.
