Tonight braised pork chops in a cider and cream sauce with LO spiced red cabbage from freezer stash, mash for the men, Cauliflower for me.
Also making stock from the turkey bones I popped in the freezer, turkey and sweet corn soup for weeks lunches
And will make some chocolate ‘salami’ to take into work which will use up the LO chocolate, sweets and biscuits from Christmas
Doing a YS pepperoni pizza that I'll pimp up with extra cheese and add mushrooms, onions, red pepper, herbs, chorizo and black olives.
Lunch will cheese and ham with part bake bread.
Dinner - eldest asked for Chinese. As money is tight it will be home made / cooked. So I’m doing chicken in batter with sweet and sour sauce, egg fried rice - using leftovers from last night, vegetable spring rolls and crackers. The last two are cheats.

If is known we weren't going out I would have prob got a few bits out of the freezer to batch cook something but never mind, might do that tomorrow. Thinking I'll use some of the diced beef I got RTC before Xmas to do S caserole, that way I can use the LO Xmas gravy and some cranberry sauce too (both also in the freezer)
