Welcome to the first What’s Cooking Wednesday of 2014. It feels like ages since I posted one of these!
My aim this term is to eat more vegetable-based dishes, and try and cut down on my food bill as much as possible. I was lucky enough to be able to stock up on loads of dry foodie items at the start of term, so fingers crossed it’ll be just fresh things I need to buy.
Wednesday – Tomato Free Lasagne
I did a little bit of batch cooking at the weekend, and one of the things I made was some Tomato-Free Bolognese. Tonight I made it into a lasagne, which I had with a spinach salad – it made a nice change, although I can’t say I was too impressed with the quality of my ASDA cheese!
Thursday – Potato Bake with Bacon Spinach
I’ve put this into my meal plan to use up the leftover white sauce.
Friday – Mushroom & Sausage Pasta
This has a potential to change – any remaining white sauce will be used here, but if there’s none left I’ll be coming up with an alternative dinner!
Saturday – Mushroom Pasta Bake
I ended up making loads of sauce on Friday, so incorporated it into a pasta bake the next night. Four meals out of one batch of white sauce – bargain!
Sunday – Chicken & Ham Pie
It’s my turn to cook this coming weekend, so I thought I’d attempt to recreate a favourite. Wish me luck – I’ll be posting the recipe on here soon if it’s successful!
Monday – Chicken & Ham Savoury Crumble
An experiment which really, really worked well! I served this with bubble’n’squeak leftover from Sunday and it was a delicious and interesting dinner.
Tuesday – Toad in the Hole
Another of my favourite recipes – this time I adapted it to be milk-free and it was delicious. I always serve this with plenty of veg, and it definitely cheers up a wet and miserable evening.
How do you get more vegetables into your meals?
