Now that the festivities have come to an end and we return to some form of routine, the buffet dinners and sweet treats are being replaced with properly planned dinners. Much to everyone's disappointment!
Here's what's on the menu this week:
Monday's dish is a family favourite. It's a standard macaroni cheese with mustard, Cajun spices, paprika and a few other bits thrown in too, along with chicken pieces for protein. I usually make a very large dish so a few portions are frozen for another time or popped in the fridge and reheated at work by the Mr for his lunch.
Tuesday and Wednesday's meals will only be eaten by the Mr as the Mini Mes are out for the evenings and I'm concentrating on a low calorie meal replacement plan for the first 6 weeks of the year.
Thursday's dinner is using up some ingredients I have leftover in the cupboard and fridge.
For Friday and Saturday I'm trying two new recipes from Nigella that I discovered in my latest cookbook purchase. These sound delicious (and the pictures look lovely) so I thought it would be a nice way to end the first week of a new year. The book was a bargain too!
