Hi everyone. I don’t know about you, but I love seeing what people have for dinner! Call me sad, but I know there’s a lot of people out there that are the same. I’m not one of those people who come home from a long day at work and want to get busy in the kitchen, creating fun and exciting recipes – I enjoy simple and easy to make meals that don’t require much hassle!
Today I wanted to share my (almost) week in dinners in case anyone needed any inspiration!
First up is a relatively new favourite of ours – sausage tray bake. For this we use potato, sweet potato, carrots, onion and garlic. We also sometimes put some frozen spinach on there as well. We then pop some sausages on top and cook for around 40 minutes, until it’s all nice and roasted. Our favourite sausages to use are the Richmond meat-free sausages. We serve this up with Yorkshire puddings and gravy.
Next up is a stir fry. I really love a stir fry but I don’t have them as often as I would like. They are a really easy way of getting in some veg and they are really adaptable to your preferences. My favourite stir fry consists of the mushroom mix from Asda, along with some beansprouts, soy and garlic sauce and rice noodles. I serve this with some prawn crackers, and as Aaron doesn’t like it, this will last me for 3 meals. Sometimes I add some prawns in if I fancy it.
We love pasta in this house! Today we’re having carbonara made with this Schwartz packet mix. Since I worked with them last year (veggie chicken casserole) I wanted to try out some other meals with their mixes and we’ve used this one a few times now. For this we use mushrooms, Quorn bacon and chicken. Aaron has real chicken and I have these Naked Glory chicken strips which are hands down the best veggie chicken I’ve tried yet. We serve it up with some garlic bread, of course!
One of our favourite meals is fish finger sandwiches! We will normally use a nice tiger loaf for this, and we serve with home-made chips and either peas or mushy peas.
On Sunday’s we normally have our version of a roast. This normally consists of the Quorn chicken and bacon lattices which are one of my favourite things on this earth! Aaron really likes them as well which is a bonus. We have these with home made roast potatoes, broccoli, carrots, Yorkshire puddings and gravy.
And there you have it! Nearly a week’s worth of meal ideas. Let me know some of your favourite meals to have for inspiration!
Until next time.
