I thought it might be useful if I told you the sort of things we generally like to eat.
Our weekly menus do tend to follow a pattern - we have a pasta based meal at least once a week (often Mondays), we eat rice probably once or twice a week and potatoes - often mashed as this is DD's current favourite way of eating them. We eat fish on Fridays - yes partly down to my Catholic background, but also partly because we should!
We eat quite a lot of chicken in different ways. I try to use turkey mince not beef because anything too greasy seems to upset DD's stomach at the moment and this has brought some challenges.
We like spicy food - especially Indian and Mexican.
My Husband makes the best chips ever - no he really does.
Thursday tends to be the day I cook something that takes a little longer as it's my day off and I have more time.
Just as an example this is our menu from this last week.
Saturday - pizza
Sunday - chicken fajitas
Monday - Spag Bol
Tuesday - Southern Fried chicken, mash and peas
Thursday - Turkey meatballs in tomato sauce with rice
Friday - Chippy Tea
Wednesday is blank because it is a difficult day for us - I'm at work, DD has Choir rehearsals starting at 5:45pm and then we all have rehearsals starting at 7:30pm. There isn't time for us to eat together so DD will have her dinner before Choir and Hubby and I will eat (usually just a sandwich) later - to allow for this we both eat bigger lunches at work that day.
I think it is really important for families to eat together - though I know it's not posible for all families. It is possible for us and so we do it.
