Last week:Hmm, didn't mange to stick to things as well as week one. My inlaws took the kids for a sleepover on Thursday night so Mr T and I had a Chinese takeaway (my fave!) that night. Friday I was decorating Minion#1's birthday cake ALL DAY that I didn't have time to pop out for the ingredients for the fajitas so we had some random stuff out the freezer. Saturday was takeaway again, but Indian this time as Minion#1 wanted a donner kebab for his 9th birthday tea.(!!!!!!!!!!!!!). The sloppy joes were a success as always, but I was a bit disappointed with the Cumberland Pie (although Minion#1 and Mr T SCOFFED it). Here's the birthday cake that took me FOREVER, and I must admit I'm pretty damn chuffed with it.
For those who don't know, it's a MINECRAFT cake, which is a computer game my 9 yr old totally LOVES. He totally LOVED the cake, thank goodness. He had a, and I quote: "the bestest birthday EVER!" doing woodland combat/laser quest up at Action Glen near Creiff Hydro and watching the Lego movie. Everything is awesome!
This week:I am starting the week with leftovers of the Cumberland pie. Due to the Birthday last week I'm unsure how i'm doing with my aim to reduce my monthly food spend down to £200-£250 (from £370 in January) so I'm aiming to eat out of the tins/jar cupboard and also freezer this week so not much cooking from scratch :(. Fingers crossed we are all fed ok, but we do have plenty of left over cake to eat so I'm sure we'll be fine.
Cheesey pasta bake with added veg and bacon
Leftover Cumberland pie from Sunday (Mr T and minion#1)
Leftover pasta bake (Mrs T and minion#2)
Sausage casserole and potato wedges
Hotdogs and salad (Minions)
Leftover sausage casserole for Mr T (if there is any) and I'll have chilli from freezer.
If no leftover casserole then we'll both have leftover sloppy joes that were frozen last week.
Chicken Tikka Masala (fingers crossed minion#2 will eat this!) and pilau rice.
smoked salmon pasta (Mr & Mrs T) unless there is leftover curry......
nuggets, fish fingers, beans, waffles (Minions)
