Unimumma’s Weekly Meal Plan: Week 2

After a few days of snow, where the trek to the shops seems too treacherous, this week’s three main recipes are rooted in the concept of using up your main cupboard ingredients. For me, these usually include Very Lazy chopped garlic, chilli, and ginger paste. These staple ingredients give any bland meal a far more exciting taste. I also would recommend having a good collection of spices at your disposal! Aldi do excellent spices for only 70p each. Last tip, having frozen fish and meat is always good for busy days or weeks where you haven’t had the opportunity to do your shop.

This weeks main recipe ideas:

  • Sausage Meatball Spaghetti
  • Chicken Laksa
  • Banana and Oat Pancakes

Friday

Breakfast – Sweet potato toast, spinach and a fried egg

Dinner – Friday fake-away of Veg curry and rice. Using whatever veg you have left in your fridge in the end of the week, cook them off with garam masala, add in tinned tomatoes, some veg stock, and yogurt. If you are going all out, add the yogurt you are using with flour till you get a dough-like consistency, and grill in a dry skillet to make some easy homemade naan breads.

Saturday

 Brunch – scrambled eggs, mushrooms and spinach

Dinner – Jacket sweet potato, grilled chicken breast, ratatouille
