Well, I cooked like it's nobody's business yesterday & was exhausted by bedtime. Here's our plan for the week.
Monday : Slow cooker roast beef, mashed potatoes, gravy, veggies, beetroot salad
Tuesday : Pesto chicken casserole, salad, veggies
Wednesday : Same as Monday
Thursday : Same as Tuesday
Friday : Something from the freezer. There's quite a few things, so just pick your meal & add a salad. I know it's St Patty's day, but I'm not cooking. I might make some green milkshakes or green beer.
Lunch : Leftovers or something from the freezer + salad
Breakfasts : Bran apple muffins, apple pancakes, cereal, oatmeal, eggs, toast. Pick your breakfast
There's always lots of fresh fruit, veggies and salad fixings available.
I was too tired to fry frikkadel yesterday, so I mixed all the ingredients, placed it into a casserole dish & baked it in the oven. Easy peasy. Doesn't quite have that frikkadel taste to me (fried taste), but the flavor's still good.
I also made a pot of applesauce, since I bought a big bag of apples at the produce market.
I'm craving chocolate, caramel & fresh cream cake for dessert. It doesn't help that I have all the ingredients. I'm really tempted to bake one, but I know we're gonna be stuck eating it until it's done, since there's just 2 of us. Our cakes in SA are always topped with fresh cream (in fact it's called fresh cream cakes), so that is what I prefer. Buttercream is used too, but fresh cream is the preferred topping. I still ask for whipping cream when I order custom cakes at Sams.
I've decided to return my slow cooker. The lid doesn't seal, so there's constant water spewing out of the pot, which leaves a huge mess. The pot also doesn't retain moisture due to this, so my beef is a little on the dry side. We're just slapping lots of gravy & beetroot onto the beef...lol. I'm upset though, cause I normally make melt in the mouth beef. I have to look for a new slow cooker. Recommendations are welcomed.
Have a great week peeps! Stay healthy, safe & warm.
