Its been a week since my mammoth post on the food we prepped and ate last weekend - the freezer is still full and I am enjoying not having to think about food for tea during the week.. There is probably a lesson there..!
Lochie is obviously having a growth spurt or similar, because I can not keep the boy full. He is having seconds and asking for thirds of everything. Yesterday he had to 2 bowls of ready brek and 2 slices of toast.. I have taken action! I like ready brek because its basically just oats and oat flour, but has added vitamins and those vitamins tick all my parenting boxes, but its quite expensive for second helpings and clearly isn't that filling.
Today we went Old Skool. Proper porridge with proper oats and Lochie took charge of the prep.
And more to the point - Lochie only managed one massive bowl. There was no request for seconds or for toast. Winner. We are making this again tonight for tomorrow.
For lunch I had a teeny portion of leftover Chickpea and Cashew Korma from the freezer, with rice and the dredges of a jar of mango chutney. I am sure I have mentioned this curry before, its so so good (first cooked for me by the amazing Holly - Hello Holls!). Have a look at the recipe here. YOU MUST TRY IT!
Chai tea in a glass tankard with an apple. Then later a Go Ahead apple and raisin biscuit trio.. Kind of like a Garibaldi biscuit but not.. I know how to live!
We had Fishcakes, sweetcorn, guacamole and smashed potatoes for tea - I prepped these last week and all I had to do this evening was prep the guac.
And remember - ALL herbal tea should be served specifically in a glass cup/tankard, thus making the drink 'special'. Herbal tea is 'special' because it makes you feel virtuous. I like to drink out of a glass half pint tankard, so I get to feel like a warrior in a tavern - virtuously obv.!
