I do get bored of pasta sometimes, but it is just so easy. Planning a whole week's worth of dinners without any pasta, on the other hand, is not easy.
And then there's the monumental FAIL that is the Bean's lunch on Friday: first course of pasta with cheese. Second course of, erm, cheese. He will then get served some veggies too, but by that point he'll be so FULL OF CHEESE that there's no way he'll eat them. The nursery dietitian had clearly skipped her 5 espressos when she needed to approve that particular week.
asparagus soup with parmesan toast (and a crunchy almond topping, or would that be madness??)
"beanotto" with feta
sake-glazed salmon & rice
shepherd's pie with sweet potato mash & peas
tuna, cherry tomato & butter bean salad (thank you for the tip Northumberland Mam)
roast chicken with couscous & veg
I meant to get a head start and make Tuesday's soup.
Instead I made banana bread.
Look, I came home from the supermarket with three broken eggs (my fault).
And I had some overripe bananas in the fridge.
