I picked up chilli and garlic rice dinner kit recently in Aldi, so thought I would give that a try tonight. You are supposed to add peppers and chicken, but I am doing it with Quorn instead.
Roast chicken for Mr S. I have some home made nut roast in the freezer that needs to be eaten. We will have roast potatoes and whatever veg I can find, plus Yorkshire puddings as there is a big bag of them in the freezer too.
We don’t often have anything much for dessert apart from yogurt or fruit, but we have rhubarb from the garden so I will be making a crumble.
Courgette and tomato eggy bake. We don’t have any of our own courgettes yet, of course, but they are cheap enough and Lidl always has big bags of nice tomatoes at a good price. This is light and fairly easy to make on a Monday. We will have the leftovers for lunch on Tuesday.
Sausage and vegetable ragu. I have Quorn sausages in the freezer but I really don’t like them! They might taste OK in this kind of dish – I hope!
Wednesday and Thursday
Cheesy mushroom and lentil cottage pie. I have all the ingredients for this already, apart from the mushrooms. As it will just be me for dinner on Thursday, I will make enough for then as well.
Spaghetti cheese casserole. I love this! Even Mr S enjoys it, which is good, because he will be bemoaning the lack of meat at this point in the week! I might be able to find him a pork chop or something to go with it.
So, that is my mainly vegetarian meal plan for the week. I am making slightly more effort after last week’s ‘can’t be bothered’ plan! What are you cooking?
