Meals for the week ahead

Inspired by recollections of dumplings at Angela's blog, I thought I had better make some plans for the rest of the week.

Gymnastics is cancelled tonight, and actually, if I had my way, I would cancel everything extra-curricular this week and just stay at home.  I hate driving in these conditions, and dread going out on icy roads.

Anyway, here's the plan for the next few days:

Tuesday - Corned beef hash - nice and warming on a cold day!
Wednesday - Leek & potato soup - Yes, again!  Still got a couple of leeks left and this is about the only way I can get people to eat them, and I love this soup.  The folks will get HM bread with it too.
Thursday - Chicken casserole
Friday - Veggie stew with cheesy dumplings
Saturday - Mixed bean soup from last week's menu - and then a home made pudding, perhaps a crumble.

That is all pretty cheap and cheerful, based around what we have in the house/freezer/storecupboard.  I do need more fruit and veg already but that may have to wait until I go out tomorrow afternoon - we have frozen veg and tinned fruit, so we won't get scurvy yet.

Just need to remember to buy the beans this week!

Enjoy the dumplings!!

Butternut squash soup here this week. Hot and comforting. But my attempts to make the peel into'crisps' with Nigel S's recipe failed miserably [maybe because I forgot to check them and they went black and bitter in the oven]
Oh and semolina pudding. I love hot milky puds when its cold outside
