Hi Guys!!
First week of October:eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

This week we are having:

Friday-Pizza & Salad (Dominoes doing pizzas @ £1.99, so we'll buy 2)
Saturday-HM Lasagna, Salad & Garlic Bread (need to buy the beef)
Sunday-Chicken, Roasties, Cauli Cheese, Yorkies, Carrots & Green Beans
Monday-HM Fish Pie, Carrots & Peas
Tuesday-Sausage Cassarole & Baked Spud
Wednesday-Egg & Chips
Thursday-Lamb Stew & Dumplings

I cook nearly everything in the Remoska now. When I do a roast, I cook the chicken first which takes about an 1hr15mins, then wipe it out and cook the roasties in there. I have been cheating and using frozen Aunt Bessies but they cook up lovely in the Remoska.

This week I should I only need fridge bits....I really need to start using whats in the freezer and cupboards and STOP buying more food:o

Breakfasts can be: toast, cereal, porridge, eggs, juice etc
Lunches can be: soup, sarnie, baked spud, something on toast, leftovers etc

So what are you all having?

Have a good week.
