I think we need a bit of livening up on our menu, and I also think that the YFG would appreciate a little more home baking occasionally, so these muffins look like something I could make in between all the other jobs on the list!
The bag of jacket potatoes is still going strong, and will be on the menu again this week. Perhaps I can cook the muffins whilst the jackets are in the oven to maximise the use of the oven. Last week I cooked four potatoes at once, and then I had two left over to zap in the microwave for quick accompaniments to meals.
The YFG is a particular fan of macaroni cheese with a sprinkling of ham or bacon in it, so that will come along one night this week - she hasn't had it for a while. If possible, I shall try to get some vegetables on the plate too, but that is sometimes a struggle with her.
I bought some leeks yesterday as I have been looking longingly at the weedy looking leeks growing in my vegetable plots and despairing that they will ever be big enough to eat! I could wait no longer this week, and leek and potato soup will be in the plan this week - I love it. I shall serve it with one of my pitta breads for me, and a roll for the YFG. She likes it too, and it is a quick and easy supper for a night on which I am working - I can make a big pot up and then just zap a portion whenever we need it.
I'm still hankering after a cottage pie too, but I am not sure that there is any mince left in the freezer. I shall have to get out there and have another rummage to see what I can find. If I haven't got any left, corned beef hash will be a close approximation to get us through the week!
And on the other nights of the week? Leftovers, and portions of previously home made meals from the freezer!
