This weekend was a bad weekend for being organised. I had a huge case of the ‘can’t be bothered’ and as a result I didn’t do food shopping over the weekend. I knew I could get through Monday with what was in the house and after a rummage around the freezer, decided that I’m only lacking vegetables and yohgurt so yesterday I bought those and this what I’m planning on eating this week.
Waffles with roasted rhubarb and yogurt for breakfast because I made too many at the weekend and might as well eat them.
I made these turkey burgers last night and they are really good. I made some minor adjustments, I didn’t have any dill so used 2 teaspoons of oregano. Also for those of you not in the US, British measurements. 500g turkey mince is slightly more than a pound but that’s how it’s sold here, 200g of feta, which is a pack or about 4.7oz and 150g drained black olives roughly equals a cup. I also made them a little smaller and got 9 out of them, which makes 8 for the freezer. The picture is them uncooked but don’t judge them harshly because of that!
Also making a comeback to the dinner rotation are lentils, ok so actually they never went away but stir fry with lentils and grilled halloumi did and is back this week. I know it doesn’t look pretty but tastes lovely!
Other meals this week are fishcakes or what you do with left over mash = answer you add vegetables and a tin of mackerel to them, cover them in breadcrumbs and put them in the freezer! and a batch of lentil bolognese eaten with pasta or maybe just vegetables.
Lunches will be leftovers or these baked falafel with salad
Over the weekend, there will be Friday Night Pizza, then on Saturday I’m out for family lunch to celebrate Mother’s Day and Laura’s birthday and on Sunday I’ll be cooking lunch for Ma (she’s already specified the menu!) Leek, Anchovy and Goats Cheese Tart, new potatoes and salad, for pudding I’m told that something with ginger and rhubarb would be good, so if you have a killer cake recipe with those two things in it, let me know!)
