    Hi,

    We did this a while ago when I was new & it was quite helpful for me to get some meal ideas so I thoughtI would start a new thread on what you are eating this week to try & help the newbies and people like me who are starting again.

    I only do Green or EE so here's my dinner plan this week:

    Smoked River Cobbler with Sweet Potato mash & veggies

    Teriyaki Salmon stir fry with Egg Noodles (from this months SW mag)

    Mushroom risotto with Quorn Fillets

    Quorn sausage, Mash, mushy peas & Gravy

    SW Quiche with Potato wedges

    Free Curry (see my recipe thread) and rice

    Quorn Sausage and Bean Bake.

    Anyone else care to join in? :)

    Well, I made up some of my chicken, butternut squash and leek stew last night in the slow cooker. I have just reheated it with some barley for a rather late lunch or early dinner (not sure which - got up very late today so the whole day is upside down).

    And the other half I will have tomorrow, probably with some rice.

    Later tonight I will be having some salad and fruit and jelly with yogurt.

    I haven't planned too far ahead, but I have a dozen free-range eggs so I will hard-boil some of them and use some of the others for a frittata, with mushrooms and courgettes.

    I am intending to make a sweetcorn chowder SW recipe next week, and also a leek and cannellini bean recipe which I found in the Waitrose Christmas booklet (minus all the oil, of course).

    I also want to try Britmum's beef in the slow cooker recipe too.

    Dinner- Pasta quiche and salad
    Tea- Quorn chilli and wholemeal spaghetti

    Tuesday
    Dinner- Spicy carrot soup with multigrain ryvita or pagan Krisprolls
    Tea- Beans on Toast

    Wednesday
    Dinner- Quorn chilli and salad
    Tea- SW chips, poached egg and beans

    Thursday
    Dinner- Pasta, sweetcorn, tuna and salad
    Tea- Piece of fish (not sure which one yet), Jacket potato, peas and mashed carrot and swede

    Friday
    Dinner- Pasta and pesto, plus a salad
    Tea- Stuffed peppers (stuffed with couscous, onions and tomatoes)

    Saturday
    Dinner- Poached egg or Beans on Toast

    Shakshouka

    red peppers
    mushrooms
    onion
    tomatoes
    tinned toms
    passata
    paprika
    2 eggs per person


    fry the peppers mushrooms onions and tomatos in a frying pan with fry light

    add half a tin of tomatoes and half the passata and let it simmer.

    make dips in the sauce and crack an egg into each one.

    spoon over the eggs some of the juices on the top so the top of the eggs cooks as well

    then serve it on its own or with rice pasta or toast!

    now when i told my OH thought it sounded gross and he is a fussy eater! the eggs look a strange colour as the sauce you sppon over them makes them eggs look pinky red but tastes amazing!

    honestly try it!!!

    Hey Sara - thanks for bumping.... your skint week looks lovely :) My week is using plenty of freezer stuff, hopefully, that is if I stick to the plan. This plan looks pretty similar to other weeks but in actual fact I've not stuck to my plans in the last few weeks!

    Oats with yog and skimmed milk
    Mango pieces with mango yog mixed with quark
    weetabix
    Mixed fruit and yog

    Dinners:
    Peppers/onions that we had with fahitas today... having with cottage cheese and wholemeal bread.
    Roasted veg soup, krisprolls and cottage cheese/laughing cow light
    Quorn chilli
    Tuna and pasta with sweetcorn and salad

    Teas:
    Fish, Jacket and roasted veg
