Welcome to another week of Monday-Friday family meals. Each week, I like to share what we really eat as a busy family with young children…
Monday: Salami, pickle and swiss cheese
Today was a slightly unusual dinner. I was doing a Hungry Caterpillar day with the boys and we ate this as a first course. I think we had pizza afterwards, although the memory has faded and all I remember is this.
Tuesday: Tuna pasta
James was in Germany, and we’d had a busy day at my parent’s house. We got back late, and I made this store-cupboard meal which was always a childhood favourite of mine. Cook wholewheat pasta, then combine with tomato ketchup, a tin of tuna and some grated cheese. I put some of my granddad’s spring onions in mine too. It’s the perfect comfort food!
Wednesday: Steak pie and mash
Pie not made by me, alas! This was actually a pretty decent shop-bought Tesco Finest pie. Everyone ate it, although Tom always complains that beef gets stuck in his teeth. You can’t please everyone…
Thursday: Bacon and Eggs
James was at home today, and we had a busy day of garden DIY until rain stopped play. We then headed over to our local soft play, then on to the garden centre. We got back late (love the summer holidays) and needed an easy meal. You can’t beat bacon and eggs. The toasted homemade sourdough was pretty great too.
Friday: Spaghetti Bolognese
Not the prettiest photo, but this is my homemade Bolognese with wholewheat spaghetti. I like to put in carrots, celery, onions, tinned tomatoes and sometimes red peppers. Along with an Oxo cube. We have now permanently switched to wholewheat pasta and can’t tell the difference. The same cannot be said of rice, and we’re back on the white basmati again.
