What we really eat #4

It’s been a while. Life has been busy and a bit stressful lately and remembering to take photos of our meals has proven rather tricky. But, finally, What we we really eat is back – and it’s all bit orange!

Monday: Fish fingers, roasted new potatoes and baked beans


My eldest son had a friend round for tea, so we stuck to an easy favourite. We’d run out of oven chips, hence the new potatoes! James and I ate our share with a quiche and salad slightly later on.

Tuesday: Chickpea and sweet potato curry


This is a really simple curry we all enjoy having. It’s onion, garlic, carrot, chickpeas and sweet potatoes – plus a can of tomatoes and some medium curry powder. Nothing fancy, but we all like it (apart from Tom, who just likes the yoghurt and naan bread).

Wednesday: Fish Pie


Not made by me, I’m afraid. James was away and I had a school meeting, so Mr Tesco obliged. I think the boys actually like this one more than mine…

Thursday: Poached egg on toast

Gabriel was poorly with a temperature and an earache. As James was away still, we kept it simple. No photo sadly, but it wasn’t much to look at anyway!

Friday: Pasta bake


Gabriel was off school poorly and for various reasons, we had a tiring and stressful day. So we reached for a jar of our favourite Homepride pasta sauce. I can’t believe you can still buy this – it’s great, you don’t even have to boil the pasta!

So there you are. Hopefully I’ll have some more meals to share with you soon!

      Thank you – yes, I love to peek into what others eat too (especially when it’s not too perfect!) x

    So interesting to see what other families eat! My daughter M doesn’t like different kinds of food mixed together, so pies and casseroles are out of the question. I made myself a curry tonight as a treat, since the children are summering with their grandparents’ during their father’s visitation time.

    Thanks for linking with #TwinklyTuesday!
