Halloween is fast approaching and as it falls on a weekend this year and given the kids won’t be out enjoying it, I thought we’d do a themed meal for the day and enjoy it in the farmhouse. Stay tuned for more on that.
We have corned beef one pot this week and it was so good, a seriously underrated meal. I’m not sure if it’s everyone’s cup of tea so let me know if you would like the recipe.
Coming up this week is also half term and the kids are home whilst I am working from home. Here’s the meal’s I am planning to have with them and my husband.
Monday: Cottage Pie served with home grown veg (sprouts, cabbage and parsnips).
Tuesday: Chicken, broccoli and rice casserole.
Wednesday: Cranberry chicken one pot.
Thursday: Pork Bolognese.
Friday: Pork chops, roast potatoes and seasonal greens.
Saturday: Halloween buffet
Sunday: Roast chicken dinner with Yorkshire puddings
Breakfasts: Toast from a new recipe I’ve found, oat based (porridge, pancakes, cold oats), egg based (dippy, scrambled or omelette) or cereal. Weekends are English breakfast, pancakes or eggs on toast.
SOTW: Red lentil, chickpea and chilli
Snacks: Banana flapjacks, brownies, fruit,
Please do let me know if you try any of these recipes or meal ideas, or if you would like to know more on how I manage my meals and planning.
If you are interested in seeing what we grow here on the smallholding, feel free to join in the fun on our Instagram or Facebook smallholding pages. We also dabble in YouTube which is rather amusing! Not the content, just that we don’t know what we are doing with it yet!
Happy new week everyone, Tracy x
