I haven't done a meal plan yet so don't know, I've just ate my lunch.
I do have a lump of gammon festering in the fridge that I cooked last week, I cannot throw it away so I will need to do something with that, hopefully it won't give me food poisoning. It smells like smoked gammon & not rancid.
I may slice or hack it & freeze & then tonight make a thick stew with some of it & frozen veg, & lentils.
It feels like autumn here today, I'm freezing, I'd quite like to put the heating on. Or light the coal fire even better.

We usually always have curry on Friday night but tonight I fancy lentil bolognase, so that's what we're having. If we've got any bread we'll have some garlic toast too.

We will have a chicken breast fillet marinated and done under the grill with some flavoured rice or pasta. Easy.

Can I come too? I love tapas so much - or any meal that consists of lots of little dishes... There's a fab Lebanese restaurant near us that does scrummy mezze. Num num num.

I forgot to get something out of the freezer so it's fish fingers for tea unless we decide to venture out to eat. (Nothing fancy, probably the local Harvester and their Early Bird Menu!)

Woop woop think I cracked the soggy rice thing I had going on. Usually I just pour rice into a pan, pour over water and boil for 20 mins!!

Tonight I actually measured rice and measured the water. No more soggy rice WOOP WOOP!

tonight we are having.....egg an chips!

I feel quite chuffed at being OS all week.... I bought a leg of lamb on saturday, OH deboned it and I stuffed with stuffing and dried fruit. Had this on Monday night with roasties, veggies and dribble, same again on Tuesday, wednesday hot lamb and onion baps (with HM bean and tomatoe soup), then minced left overs into shepherds pie bulked out with butter beans, onions and carrots and had this Thursday night and enough for Saturday night. So having a night off from lamb.... hmm having read that I now feel quite tightfisted! am surprised how far the lamb went. I would have frozen the shepherds pie but my OH has a flap on at work and it wont be finished until next week. This way, he has quick meals whatever time he gets in, bless..

Not tight at all mesh - creative! That's just what I do (just not with lamb as I'm not a big fan). My record is a full week (7 meals plus sandwiches) from a £10 piece of knucle end bone in leg of pork, and my OH does like his meat! I made roast pork, sunday dinner pasties, pork and broccoli lasagne, chinese stirfry, cold cuts and chips, pizza, and pork, courgette and aubergine pasta bake. I usually manage to get about 4 meals out of whatever meat I've bought for the week and the rest of the time its veggie and I'll buy a different meat each week, depending what's on a good offer.

not a clue yet, but it has to be something with leftover roast pork as that needs using up today.

I now fancy everything that everyone else is having.
Lamb that can stretch to that many meals is brilliant, not at all tightwad.
I like anything that can be converted & rehashed to make something else.
One of my faves is pork hock, because it's only me I can make it last about a week, it's soup by then but still loads of flavour.
I quite fancy the egg & chips that has been suggested.
How does everyone else cook their home made chips?
I had done the slimming world oven chips for years using spray oil but they never really crisp much, so the other week I used a spoonfull or two of lard, what a difference. I'd forgotten how much better they taste & crisp up.

Yes, I slice then boil the potatoes, I don't peel mine, cook mine right through, drain & fluff the edges a bit by shaking in the dry pan.
Put the lard on a tray & heat up in the oven then toss the potatoes in the hot fat & stick back in the oven, turn them over a few times.
If I remember I put them on the chip crisper thing after getting them coated in fat, with a tray on the shelf below.
