What’s Cooking Wednesday (#7)

I must say, I think last week’s post went better that Week 5’s! This week I am attempting to use up all of my fresh food, so (1) we have a bit of a mish-mash, and (2) it is very likely to change!

This is also the last What’s Cooking post for a few weeks. Next week is the last week of term, so I’m planning out all meals til I go back, and then I’ll be at home (and so not having to meal plan too much). I’ll be back with this series in January!

Wednesday – Southern Fried Chicken, with Homemade Wedges & Coleslaw

I’ve had a craving for homemade coleslaw for weeks, I have red cabbage to use up, I had money off breaded chicken. Win win, craving = sorted. This dinner is the kind of dinner I really enjoy, but don’t let myself have too often. Homemade coleslaw = the best!

I’m afraid I didn’t get a picture of this – but my coleslaw was good!

Thursday – Christmas Dinner

As you know, my house does a Sunday dinner, and this weekend it was due to be our Christmas one. However I have an important event on Monday which I need to prepare for, so we’ve moved it to Thursday. I’m excited for all the trimmings!

Friday – Dinner In London: WAHACA Time!

I’m meeting my boyfriend in London (because, well, I miss him!) so its to our favourite restaurant. I need to email them tonight to re-check their menu for tomato-free ness!

Saturday – Sausage & Chicken Pie, Mash and 3 Types of Cabbage

Sunday – Mushroom Risotto, Salad, & Garlic Bread

Monday – Leftover Risotto

I possibly might do this in a bake-form, which a crunchy breadcrumb and cheese topping.

Tuesday – Sausage & Mash with Vegetables

Wednesday – Curry Night

It is a housemate’s birthday, so we’re ordering a take-away. Obviously I can’ risk ordered too much off-menu, so I’ll be cooking my own curry sauce and just buying rice and naan. This also marks the last day of proper lectures and assignments, so a bottle of cider may be in order!

Thursday – Home Time!

I’m hoping to be home by Thursday night, so that is the end of my ‘week’ – Merry Christmas meal planners!

What recipes do you have for using up ingredients?
