7:  red nails; 8:  blue sky & clouds; 9:  this mornings blue sky.

as mentioned before in various posts on here; i am trying very hard to make homemade meals EVERY night and make a healthy & filling lunchbox for wayne & myself every day.  so far the easiest thing for me is to start on a sunday & collect & choose all the recipes i want to make for the following week.  i try to add 1 night with only veggies & no meat & another night with fish as the meat & then on friday’s an easy meal.  then i work out our grocery list.  order the food. write it down on our menu board in the kitchen.  this makes my life SO much easier when i get home in the evenings after work.  i use to grab something out of the freezer in the morning when i left the house and then when i get home at 7pm, i then have to decide what to make with it.  and the other reason i think this way is better because i/we got tired of the same meals every time.  with using recipes that i get from either the internet, my cookbooks or from sainsbury’s (our local grocery shop – they use jamie oliver to create recipes for them), we get to try something new every night & also something i would NEVER have thought to do myself.

i should actually do a post on this every week…

last night i made sesame seed fish balls (like fishcakes but with sesame seeds rather than dough) with egg noodles & mange tout.  i must admit the next time i make it, i will add more spices to this was a bit too bland for my tasting (but don’t think this will happen because wayne didn’t like it). i personally don’t think it was that bad – i actually liked it more than i thought i was going to.

i wish you all a FANTASTIC weekend filled with fun & laughter!!!

we are coming up to our birthday’s, so i will add my birthday wish list next week! (will get the hubby to do his too).

    yes this way works the best - takes me a lot of time & effort on the sunday but then i don't have to worry about it for the rest of the week! xx

  3. sure, it would absolutely work! :) All you need is his ideas and then its all good! ;)
