Yesterday (or rather the bad planning and lack of time-management of yesterday) is the reason why I only plan for 6 days of meals.
I’ve said it before (and I’ll say it again), very rarely is there a week when one planned meal isn’t abandoned last-minute.
The last two weeks it happens to have been a Wednesday. Not emergency trips to the Dentist this week (thank goodness), rather collecting daughter from art club, having a friend to play and having to be back out the door for a school meeting all within an hour time slot meant something had to give. That something was the Salmon Fishcakes I had planned, I’d forgotten about the 20 mins chilling time after the prep! Pasta and garlic bread is was. I did make the garlic bread (as I had some dough thawed out ready to go) and could have posted a comparison on that, however struggled getting my Son to bed…and it all went down hill from there!
I may pop back to this post and do a comparison later, as I’d be interested to see how my garlic bread compares, but I don’t have time this morning. The UK is experiencing industrial action today and Leah’s teacher is on strike. We are back off to Wonderland (where we had Dan’s party earlier this month) as it is a lovely day and we have some free return passes (twas a washout at the party ).
I also need to load Lil’ Bill my standard slow cooker before we leave with the Thai Green Pork Curry for dinner. I love my slow cookers. By getting ‘em loaded up early, it doesn’t matter what life throws at you (or how bad your time-management is) you still get a fabulous home-cooked dinner!
See you later Guys
