Stir fry, noodles with chinese spiced duck breast, home made spring rolls.
While I was rummaging in the freezer for the duck breasts I and came across a pack of chicken thighs that need using so while I had all the spices etc out I also made up a ginger/soy/chilli and garlic marinade for them. They can be eaten cold tomorrow if not needed for tonight.

Just made some meatballs in tomato sauce. Used up loads of tired old veg which made me feel virtuous. Hopefully it will all taste ok. We’ll have it with pasta.

Quite a substantial salad and as I did extra mash on top of roasts yesterday I saved it, added onion and salad cream and mixed it all up for potato salad. Red salmon ( don't like pink ) tinned, and a sliced hard-boiled egg. Home-made salad dressing. That'll do me grin Bread and butter and a cup of tea.

Roast chicken, served with roasties (natch) and cauliflower and broccoli in a cheese sauce.

I then get a chicken sandwich for lunch in a couple of days, and scavenge the carcass to provide meat for a chicken provençale, which includes onions, garlic, peppers, mushrooms and courgette. That then gives me three or four decent meals, and can be served with rice, pasta or baked pots. One has to look after the inner man!

Unconventional for Easter Monday, but who cares? 😄

Left over roast chicken with mash carrots and cauliflower with stuffing and gravy. Homemade apple and blackberry pie with cream. I think I better take another walk after 😅

Spanish omelette with fresh salads. All home-made & served with home-baked bread. (DH's creations: I can take no credit!)

Jaxjacky Mon 05-Apr-21 16:15:04

Leftovers, Moussaka for DH, chicken casserole and veg for me.

New recipe tonight - Mexican Chicken with Rice. Found it on a slimming world recipes blog, and thought it sounded interesting.

Husband and son will have the remainder of yesterday's fruit crumble and some custard or cream if they want pudding.
