We had (8pm here in NZ) a quick easy dinner, my version of the Turkish food court meals... Rice with salad and chicken cooked in garlic with a taco type seasoning with hummus etc. It's a big hit here which suits me as its quick and easy!

Lasagne.  Made it with DS11.  The quickest way to put an end to the whinging in our house, is to put him to work  wink.gif

What my mum calls macaroni mince- pasta (I'm using spirals) with chicken mince, tomato paste, carrot, capsicum and onion (veg finely diced in food processor). Not a wet sauce at all, no tin tomato or passata etc. Lots of parsley on top and a good sprinkle of Parmesan. Yum!

I bought 2 chicken cordon bleaus(fancy, I know! ) and one Hawaiian one with pineapple for my 2yr old, and I'm making tomato salad with croutons and feta and olives and not sure what else.

We had that last night. One of my fave meals and cheap too. We had bought naan though.

We are having chilli con chicken tonight with rice and guacamole. I've made a heap so we will possibly have it again tomorrow because I'm working but made into burritos or I'll freeze it.

We all had spaghetti bolognese except for DS 4yrs because he refuses to eat any meat that's not sausages or comes deep fried  sick.gif  He only had spaghetti and some grated cheese.

Well we had Corn.

Fresh picked from the garden, straight in the microwave, real butter on top.

The 5 and 2 year old went “yum is this tea?” all excited.  
DH went “is this tea?” with a more disbelieving tone.

We are drowning in corn that is all ready so yes that was tea.  

It was yum!!

I have managed to cut the bottom of my foot quite badly so have been hobbling around all day and this was as good as it was going to get.  

I can see DH making desert later (his job) so that will be good too.

Mushroom and ham omelette with crusty bread and green salad. DH, DD and I had egg omelettes and today I tried a vegan omelette for DS. A wee bit bland, but not bad for a first attempt and he ate a lot, so he must have liked it.
