Meal Planning Monday (26 November 2012)
We very nearly stuck to our meal plan last week which was refreshing! The only change we made was a sneaky payday take out on Thursday so the turkey meatballs have been carried forward onto this week.
I had some comments last week about the sausage special so the recipe is below. I found it on the internet (possibly Netmums?) but I change what goes in it almost every time I make it so I’ll just put the most basic version down. I have found it’s one of those recipes which happily lends itself to whatever you’ve got in your cupboard!
1-2 chopped carrots (I prefer cutting mine into cubes so they go soft and the kids eat them!)
1 chopped onion
1 tin of baked beans
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 crushed clove of garlic
150ml vegetable stock
Grill the sausages. In the meantime, fry the onion in some oil, add the garlic and when soft add the tomatoes, mushrooms and carrots and let them cook through on a low heat.
When the sausages are brown, chop them up and put them in (this can be at any point).
Add the beans and the vegetable stock. Simmer for 15-20mins until ready.
Serve with potato, crusty bread…whatever you like. My kids generally prefer mash with this.
I hope that can be of use to someone! It’s even better reheated as it tends to thicken and as a family of 4 I find there’s usually enough leftovers to freeze another meals worth.
So, onto this week:
