These look quite tasty and also looking at the ingredients you could also swap the meat to pork/beef as my kids like red meat! Cheers

We have a weekly menu so I dont really have to think about whats for dinner that night, i do my weekly shop on a monday and everything is in ready for the week. Have you thought about a batch cooking? Say, set aside a couple of hours on a sat/sun and cook to freeze. You can do chilli, bolognaise, curry etc then all you have to do is pull it out the freezer, heat & pop the pasta/rice on. So many things are easily freezed. It saves loads of time.

Just some examples of meals we have: salmon with pasta & broccoli, curry & rice & popadoms, spag bol & garlic bread, lasagne & salad, beef stew & crusty bread, chicken tikka & rice also we love chicken wraps with all the salad. (Were not very adventurous when it comes to food, we all like basic homely meals ๐Ÿ˜†)

Sometimes i just buy a frozen pizza & garlic bread and bung it in if Im feeling lazy!

PinkElephant26 we started doing a meal list during lockdown as it was too hard to nip out for missing ingredients and it's worked out so well we kept it up

Pasta bake is a really good quick and easy (and cheap) one - you can get the jars of sauce in all supermarkets and overall itโ€™s a really quick meal with very minimal effort ๐Ÿ™‚

Stir fry is another good one! You can get the packs of the veg in supermarket and also a sauce, do some rice or noodles with it and again a quick, easy and cheap (but lovely) meal ๐Ÿ™‚

Cooking every day can be such a chore. But I don't like fast food as contributes to weight gain. As I have lost 7 stone I wouldn't like 2 pile bk on.

Good old spaghetti bolognese, I make up a batch and freeze, then it takes 10-15 minutes to boil up spaghetti or pasta, microwave meat, top with grated cheese, done.

I enjoy planning what to make out of what is in the fridge/freezer but then there's only the two of us so it's much easier for me! My husband doesn't cook so he has to eat it or go without!
