What’s Cooking Wednesday (#4)

It’s amazing how quickly the weeks go by when you do this type of post!

This week’s menu is based on trying to spend as little as possible, as it is my turn to cook on Sunday. My plan is to start eating up what is in my freezer, slowly emptying it down for the Christmas break (despite it being a long way off!). Remember to check back as the week goes on to see how my meals went – last weeks post is now fully updated.

Wednesday – Potato & Lentil Curry (from freezer), Spinach, Rice & Naan

No picture of this, but it wasn’t the most attractive of dishes – tasted good though!

Thursday – Mushroom Pasta (with Spinach) & Garlic Bread

This is my comfort dinner – I love a creamy mushroom sauce. Mine is made by slow-cooking a can of condensed mushroom soup with half a tub of chopped fresh mushrooms, a chopped onion, a tub of creme fraiche and loads (five cloves!) of garlic with some herbs too. This makes five or six servings for the freezer, and as long as you stir it well when reheating (as it does split) it is absolutely fine.

Friday – Out at McDonalds!

Me and the girls are heading out to an 8.30pm showing of the new Hunger Games film, we have McDonalds vouchers, so thought we’d make a cheap night of it – I’m looking forward to some junk food!

Saturday – Noodle Stir-Fry

Again, not the most attractive of dishes, so no photo. But see my basic stir fry here!

Sunday – Chicken & Sausage Pot Pie, Mash & Veg

It’s my turn to cook this week, and I thought I’d go with this. I made it at some point from a Times Newspaper recipe, but I’m hoping I can find a similar one elsewhere as I’ve lost it! This meal definitely went down well, and I’ll be blogging about it soon!

Monday –  Bubble & Squeak with Sausages

2013-11-25 19.10.31

I changed my menu plan to accommodate leftovers, and it was definitely yummy!

Tuesday – Mushroom Risotto

2013-11-26 19.52.49

I was in need of a treat/comfort me, and this is my go-to ‘recipe.’ Made enough for Wednesday’s lunch too!
