One week closer to half term here and we cannot wait. Hubby needs a rest and we have some exciting plans in half term so we’re very much looking forward to this week being over. It’s awful isn’t is, wishing away time but hey, I spend half the week doing it!
Here’s what we’ve got planned for dinner this week
Chicken curry with the new SW Tikka Massala sauce
Peri Peri chicken with wedges and over roasted vegetables
Campfire Stew with mashed potato
Mixed bean chilli
It’s getting to that time of year where it’s definitely the weather for warming comfort food and the campfire stew is definitely one of my favourites as it’s a throw it into the slow cooker job and leave it to do its thing. Little Mr loves it too so it’s a meal we can all eat together when we get in from work. I’d love to find a nice low fat beef stew recipe for the slow cooker but I haven’t found one yet. My stew’s are always too watery and very unappetising. I’d love to put dumplings in my stew too so I guess I’d have to syn those but they would be worth it. My Mom’s beef stew and dumplings was delicious so my own version would have a lot to live up to.
Breakfasts this week will be the usual. I’m still trying to shake up my breakfasts and lunches so I’m not getting bored of my meals.
