I found a very promising potato cook book in the charity shop this morning for 50p, all about cooking with potatoes. Spuds are delicious in so many forms. I am hoping this makes me a bit more adventurous when using this very cheap and filling ingredient. Going to use some of these for our budget meals this week and in the coming weeks.
This week’s budget meals
Fish pie. We have all three daughters here for this. I am using cheap frozen blocks of cod with a few prawns and some hard boiled eggs, topped with a creamy sauce and finally mashed potatoes. We will have this with kale.
No cooking today. We are off to my sister’s house to see my nephew. He lives in Thailand now and we haven’t seen him for three years. We are all so looking forward to catching up.
Vegetable burgers with home made chips cooked in the air fryer and salad. I tried some from Amy’s Kitchen, but I have to say I am not keen on the taste or the texture. They are incredibly bland. Still they will be fine with some ketchup, hopefully. I can’t waste them!
Potato curry from my bargain potato cookery book. The recipe calls for cauliflower. I can’t stomach this sadly, so I will replace it with broccoli to add some colour and nutrition. Mr S loves a curry. We will eat this with poppadoms and mango chutney.
Spanish tortilla and salad. Again, I will use the recipe in my potato book.
Thursday and Friday
Macaroni cheese with lots of vegetables. This is a quick and easy after work supper. I will make double quantity and have the same on Friday, as I am bound to be tired at the end of the week.
This is a relatively easy week of budget meals. The fibromyalgia is still playing up and I still have a lot of pain in my shoulder, so I am taking it easy. What are you planning to eat this week?
